Luckily one day I just didn't play... then I stopped. This game gripped me like no other game had since Rollercoaster Tycoon - Loopy Landscapes. Some days I'd start playing at 5pm and then look up as if I'd been there for an hour but it was actually the early hours of the morning. Easily 10hrs with no nourishment. It is an epic game and if I thought I'd have the time it deserves again, I'd install it tomorrow. It didn't seem to matter that the military part was pretty weak. I'd say, if you like exploring and economy devlopment type games that have amazing graphics and are set in an interesting era before cars and nukes; Don't buy it unless you have infinite time and no job ;)

Dawn of Discovery is a generic and bland name. Unlike Anno 1404. However, if it takes places in the 18th century, how is it anno (year) 1404? But then, this seems to be an alternative historical fiction, given that bogus name for the eastern civilization. Then again, the use of latin in the name Anno 1404 doesn't suit such kinds of games as the name Settler does, for example, the first few of which ironically had the Roman civilization as the main one, yet no latin whatsoever--STOP TAKING ME TO THE NEXT VIDEO, GAMESPOT, I'M TRYING TO POST A COMMENT!!!11one

Absolutely epic game. After 100+ hours the game is still as fun as ever. The graphics and audio are top-notch even today, and the game-play is near-perfect. Get the Venice expansion and enjoy one of the greatest cooperative games ever.

Very Good Game ANNO 1401 Dawn of Discovery

Good, but it needs to be on the large land area and is not an island, in the sense that is a big world, and the composition of the military would be more realistic and proportionate to the population enough

they've better had called it anno 1080 or anno 1008, then it was historical correct cause in the late 11'nd century the cruisade's came and in the early 11'nd century they discovered the Orient, but nevertheless it's a very good game and very addictive and fun to play. WELL DONE!

Me gusta.Pienso que va ser mucho mejor que Age of Empire y que haya continuaciones a futuro de este clasico estilo de invasiones y conquistas.Estaría bueno poder capturar rehenes y convertilos en soldados.

as there are so many rts games out there which focus heavily on conflict and battles but are all pretty similar this should be a welcome break, sounds really confusing though

I was going to pre-order this game. As good as this game looks however, BEWARE, invasive DRM is in place. Ubisoft went with EA's footsteps on Spore that you get 3 activations, using a less known Tage DRM solution, which is basically a invasive rootkit. I am sure that won't be uninstalled with the game.

I always enjoyed anno games and this one looks much better than Anno 1701. however, this trailer does not present new functionalities, and what i can do with this game what wasn't possible in the last one. I heard network gaming is not possible (perhaps in a future add-on only). How long can I play? And where's the fun? Hope there're going to be more explicit trailers and videos soon.

"Once, long ago, men believed the world was flat..." And that ridiculous myth gets another little boost. Good work, whoever wrote that.

It looks even better than Anno 1701 wich is still the best looking city builder out there. From what I understand, you will be able to build two type of cities, oriental and occidental. This is awesome ! @AnarchyRising I totally agree with you, COTN is an awesome city builder, and I'm sure Titled Mild will comeback to it someday... Most people liked COTN much more than Simcity Societies, their last game.

This does look really fun. The previous games in the series were fun to play too. I wish Children of the Nile would come out with a sequel. That's what this makes me think of. But one thing that bugs me, the one fat guy is about 1/8th the size of one ship. I know its not a polygon issue, because nowadays any rig can handle a few hundred extra polys. I just wish the RTS devs would keep that in mind because I always see buildings where a unit would be half, or close to, the size of the building he came out of. Not a big problem. Just an observation.
