a regression from previous versions of settlers,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom (PC/Mac DVD) (DVD-ROM)
This game is substantially similar to earlier settlers versions in its setup. Though good, it is scarcely better than previous versions.
What is substantially worse though is the technical side of things. You need an open internet connection to use it, a lot of system memory, I still haven't gotten the graphics right. Furthermore, the online interface you have to use is slow and uses a lot of system resources.
I can't think of any reason to get this over an earlier version of settlers.
