    Classic Resourcemanaging and cityclusterbuilding !

    I still think Anno 1602 is by far the best in the Anno series. The other games may have been more fleshed out but did not feel unique anymore with games such as Zeus, Caesar III and Immortal Cities around. In Anno, y... Read Full Review

    A worthy game thats sadly over looked by many.

    Well, I picked this up not long after it came out, and I have to say that this game is awesome. It's not a fast paced game like say Age of Empires or so, but it gives you time to plan, and enjoy the game for what it is. ... Read Full Review

    An old game that has good value. Worth picking up if you can still find it, should be under ten bucks.

    Having its roots in old style RTS games, 1602 is a fun game to pick up for easy playing. Though not much compared to others such as the Age of Empires series, it is worth playing if your into the old school stuff. Much... Read Full Review

    Don't underestimate this game

    This game itself is pretty simple, easy, and straight foward with no sudden twists or turns. The gameplay is pretty slow so if you are all about the speed of Age of Empires games you shouldn't buy this game right of the... Read Full Review

    A Hidden Treasure

    I found 1602 A.D. in the bargain bin a couple of years after it was 'dumped' in the U.S. I usually prefer building and strategy games and I frequently find myself 'between' games as these are not genres that see tons of... Read Full Review

    One of the best PC has to offer...

    a very good game to begin with. This game is kind of hard because you can easily be near to your end. Pirates everywhere trying to loot you. You start at tutorials and then you begin to settle at your island and become r... Read Full Review

    Once it takes, you wonder where the hours went.

    Real-time strategy should have more like it. Basically shoved in my face, I thought it looked cheesy at first. The user interface is "strange" lots of left clicking, not the usual left to select - right to do. This makes... Read Full Review

    Ok this game has been out for awhile but it still rocks. I bought this and really didn't think I would like it but hey it was on sale. I'm not much into the battle part but I love setting up the colonies . I can spend ho... Read Full Review

    Great game tp play when you're bored of everything else.

    Being into the subject of History i find this game to be, accurate. Though the military part of this game is weak, the game itself is challenging without being too challenging. I have had this game for at least 2-3 yea... Read Full Review

    Good game to mess around with.

    This game doesnt have much to it other then building a civilization. Going to war with the other countrys is so much fun, the combat on this game is sort of hard to get used to but when you get the hang of it then you ca... Read Full Review
