    This was one of my first pc games so it will always hold a special place in my heart.

    I really enjoyed this game. It was a lot of fun to play. Although the missions are pretty much all the same just a different area to conquer, and the missions get repetitive after a while. But it's really fun buildi... Read Full Review

    Great game, I recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap classic game.

    Wicked game, I got it when I was ten, its definately the best settlers game. The building animations are great as are the workers. Buildings are much cooler than those in Age of Empires and the managment of resources is... Read Full Review

    A fun game to spend hours on!!!

    This was one of the first games i played as a kid and even if it seems a bit confusing in the beginning, after a few hours of gameplay you get the hang of it, and playing one of the many maps or the campaign gets a lot o... Read Full Review
