5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive and well designed 11 Sep 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Put simply, I'm loving it as a strategy/sim game on 2D isometric view. This is a well executed game, revolving around the idea of building a small empire on various islands. The game mechanics is simple, but well designed so that it keeps you thinking and at times panicking.

The basic idea starts by establishing a market on an island, then building houses and resource buildings (such as sugar farms and tea factories). People move into the houses you build while consuming the goods you produce in resource buildings. Once certain criteria are met, those people will be upgraded to the next level of civility. With that comes a demand for other types of resource which you must provide, and with more houses and people you have to ensure the supply and demand is balanced. Happy people will in turn give you money through taxation. Fail that balance, you will either waste resources or people will get angry and eventually your civilization will downgrade over time.

Strategy comes in through city planning. Many buildings have an area of influence, so you can't just place them anywhere. You have to plan the layout from time to time to ensure that you get the correct coverage. For instance, when you build a factory you often (but not always) have to build the source (such as a mine or bee farm) within the factory's range. Eventually you will need to upgrade the market so that you have more wagons that travel around the island to collect the products each building produces. When people demand, say a university, you place the university so that its coverage goes over those people's houses.

Various islands have different fertility level for your products, so you can't really survive by colonizing 1 island.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good game, and worth trying out! 22 Sep 2007
By G Welby
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I actually got this game while I was in Germany, as I heard a lot about it while I was there. I love strategy games, so this was an interesting game to look at for me, as until now I've never found a really great one on the ds (well except for AW DS).

The game is similar to Age of Empires I suppose, but you have more control on building your city and empire up. The graphics are pretty good too, although can be a bit annoying sometimes as when you start to have a large city it can be difficult to see what is going on.

As far as the gameplay goes it's pretty good. You are given tasks by your queen to gain land, defeat enemies etc for your country. There are many different buildings to make, and you have to cater for your villagers with materials, food, and other attractions such as churches, pubs, universities etc. You can build armies too to defend your island, and you can attack other islands by the sea. And therefore take over new islands. Another cool option is how oyu can control the price of different materials on the world's market, so you can lower or higher it depending on the stock you have.

The options in the game are good, the campaign will last a while, I still haven't finished it! Also there is an unending free play mode which is interesting, but I think the campaign is where all the time will be spent. The multiplayer side works well, but why is there not a single card link up??!???!?!??! This is the worst side of the game!

Overall I think this a breath of fresh light for the ds market. I think as long as you don't expect this game to change your life or that you are getting the game of the year you won't be disappointed. I'm not, and I hope there will be further games in this series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just couldn't get to grips with this... 1 July 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a very involved game, and seemed to me quite complex. If you like games on the PC such as Civilisation etc, then it probably would appeal more. I found the icons to be small and hard to distinguish, and I kept failing the same challenge, and then I stopped caring.

It does seem well put together and the graphics are lovely and detailed, but still very small on the screen.

I think it was just the wrong game for me, if you like to spend hours on a game and developing your people then it probably is perfect for you.

By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Last year I heard that Settlers (my favourite game of all time on Amiga/PC) was to be released on the DS - so I got a DS in anticipation.

Unfortunately (nearly a year later) after several delays, it was released and lambasted by critics due to the glitches and constant crashing which render it nigh on unplayable. Thankfully though - someone recommended this alternative to me...

...The first thing I did when I got this home was lose the instructions. Not a bright move considering that the game is considerably large in scale, but playing the game on "Story mode" guided me through everything I needed to know, and the game has a trusty Annopaedia which is a huge helpfile organised alphabetically by keyword.

"Story Mode" is a good way to start the game as it gives you something to strive to and something to complete (unlike "Continuous Mode" which goes on forever). It consists of a series of chapters with missions, each mission introduces you to new elements of gameplay, and once you have completed a few of these you will feel confident and not need any real additional guidance. It also adds a story to the game (hence `Story' mode!) as it describes the settlers of the islands around you, be they friendly comrades or `orrible pirates, and I know it's wrong, but Carmen Marquez is pretty attractive - as far as computer generated images go.

Anno 1701 is a complex strategy game - the premise is simple enough though: You are a pioneer sent on a mission by your Queen (who looks like Queen Elizabeth I, but she had been dead for quite some time by 1701, maybe it's a cross-dressing King William III?!).
