Anno 1701 ds review

  • Excerpt: OK where to start well Anno is a series that is very successful on the pc platform however on its transition to the ds it does mildly well. Firstly the modes in this game are limited but the inclusion of Nintendo WFC would have boosted its appeal.
  • Pros: Great sprite graphics, Good sounds  +  music,  Gameplay is fantastic
  • Cons: Single player mode should be better, Needed Nintendo WFC

Addictive and well designed

  • Summary: Put simply, I'm loving it as a strategy/sim game on 2D isometric view. This is a well executed game, revolving around the idea of building a small empire on various islands. The game mechanics is simple, but well designed so that it keeps you thinking and at times panicking.

Really good game, and worth trying out!

  • Summary: I actually got this game while I was in Germany, as I heard a lot about it while I was there. I love strategy games, so this was an interesting game to look at for me, as until now I've never found a really great one on the ds (well except for AW DS).

The best DS game bar none (so far....)

  • Summary: On the PC, I love the Cossacks series and seriously considered counselling to overcome the addiction (well, my wife considered it for me). Up until now I have loved Animal Crossing on the DS, largely as I'm on a mission to have one of every fruit available.

  • Summary: Last year I heard that Settlers (my favourite game of all time on Amiga/PC) was to be released on the DS - so I got a DS in anticipation. Unfortunately (nearly a year later) after several delays, it was released and lambasted by critics due to the glitches and constant crashing which render it nigh...

Just couldn't get to grips with this...

Laura Hughes, Amazon
4 September 2007
  • Summary: This is a very involved game, and seemed to me quite complex. If you like games on the PC such as Civilisation etc, then it probably would appeal more. I found the icons to be small and hard to distinguish, and I kept failing the same challenge, and then I stopped caring.

  • Summary: I loved this game, I highly recommend it. Only slight flaw is that there is only one story mode then you are stuck with the continuous play.

Best strategy game on DS

Max, Amazon
4 September 2007
  • Summary: Title says it all - Anno 1701 realy IS the best strategy game you can get on your Nintendo DS. Lovely graphics, excellent music, very comfortable interface - all this makes game worth to buy right now. There is some basics you'd need to learn, but after several minutes - you are all in this.
