    Best city-building game I've ever played

    Rated on August 09, 2009 by antipunt1

    It might be somewhat relevant to mention that RTS isn't even close to being my favorite genre. That said, Anno1404 was nothing short of amazing, simple fun. Well, not exactly simple. One of the gam...

    Anno 1404 is quite possibly the best City-Building game there is out there and is a must-try for city building lovers.

    I can definitely say that Anno 1404 is easily one of the best city-building games I have ever played. It's so immense and addictive that you'll lose yourself in it. The graphics are really impressi...

    It has been four years since I've written a review on gamespot, but now that I'm back to PC gaming, I might want to pick up my old habit and write some reviews on games. A lot has changed in the passe...

    Also known as ANNO 1404. Great SIM game and easy to learn

    Rated on February 24, 2012 by estockwe

    I have had this game ever since it came out and began playing again a few weeks ago. The graphics are much better than 1701 and it's easier to build the farms etc that need planting. Just plop down ...

    Woth playing if you have nothing else to do

    Rated on August 15, 2009 by DBROWN9

    Anno Dawn Of Discovery is a quaint little game of just over 4 gig on disc. It isn't much different from other city building games and therers nothing new to expect. It is very similar to Settlers, (bu...

    Hesitant at first. But this game really delivers. It effectively makes you feel in command of a kingdom.

    I was hesitant at first. But this game really delivers. It effectively makes you feel in command of a kingdom. You can control pretty much everything you would want to control. The depth is fascinatin...

    Finally a city-building/trading game that is superior.

    Rated on August 23, 2009 by Gormta

    So, for many years since "SimCity" :) I've been looking for a substitute that works. In my opinion requirements for such a game are: It should look inviting and this game does so. It should be fun to ...

    Ignore Unplayable reviews, read content ones to know if you will like it. I played lots of 1701 and otherstrategy games

    Rated on August 25, 2009 by akdoc

    First off. My CPU can piss me off all the time with funky Microsoft glitches and freezes. However this game runs fine with extremely high settings. Everything but the highest anti-aliasing which I ...

    Rated on August 26, 2009 by MichaelMorbid

    This was our first time sailing this series so our point of reference are even further off course. This game seems to us to essentially be a Caesar IV, but a Caesar IV that works. With at least a thou...
