1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed 1 Mar 2011
By Ceri
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played the actual Settlers of Catan board game and enjoyed it, I have to admit this DS version is a massive disappointment.

In it's favour Catan does offer quite a bit of variety as it includes both the standard game and the Seafarers expansion pack. In addition there are a few different modes of gameplay, including a campaign and a skirmish mode for single players plus a multiplayer element. The controls mainly revolve around using the stylus and work fairly well, although all the screens are very small, especially the main map screen even when zoomed.

The bulk of the game comprises the campaign mode where you play a game against 2 or 3 AI controlled opponents in a number of different scenarios. Some of these include games where there is a shortage of a particular resource or where there are bonus points for settling on new islands etc. In theory this is a great idea and as you progress the opponents become more skillful making the games more difficult. Unfortunately in practice these scenarios are often riddled with flaws, as your opponents often flat out cheat. For example some of the scenarios have a certain town limit e.g. 4 towns but your opponents don't seem to have to obey these rules and frequently can build more than the limit allows. Also they seem to be able to break one of the most fundamental rules of Catan by building a town in the middle of nowhere with no roads connected at all. Trust me nothing is more frustrating than having a longest road to see an opponent suddenly build a town in the middle of it. It's things like this that makes playing with any form of strategy in mind a frustrating experience.

Another quite significant problem with the game is the supposedly 'random' dice rolls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fair game 14 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Hmm, Settlers of Catan on the DS - it sounds too good to be true. But actually it's not bad - a fair representation of the game, a little bit fiddly, and a few times you wish you could skip sequences they make you wait for, but overall pretty good. The individual games are good, with random board set-ups and intuitive controls (no buttons, it's all stylus-based), and the campaign is tough but fair. The only thing i found a little frustrating was that the opponents ALWAYS pick one of YOUR hexes when they roll a 7, so they always rob you, not the other computer players - which is a bit biased, especially as the opponents are no slouches! I found that if you just don't ever trade with them (unless YOU need something from THEM), it slows their roll a bit!

Overall, a fair representation of Settlers on the DS which I've given 4 stars mainly because the mechanics seem to have got it right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Settlers of Catan with seafarers 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
If you love the board game, you will love this game. Not too complicated (only base game and seafarers). You can campaign and have many scenarios so you follow a kind of evolution through your campaign. I think that cities and knights goes too far as to the number of rules and is more complicated. Seafarers and base game are just perfect for everyone. My 7 year old daughter loves it too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Only for fans 27 Mar 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Best portable version of Catan, I recommend to fans of the game, who does not play Catan can not enjoy this game. I love this game and this version has far more options (expansion) than the cell phone.
