Fail

Nicholas McNelis, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a worse version of the game Anno 1701 it was quickly put into a bin of games not played. Anno 1701 has got better islands and military. Seems they tried to make the game for younger kids when they came out with this title.

  • Summary: If you enjoy games that stay interesting and don't end up bombing out right in the middle, if you enjoy games with different scenarios, you should try out this game.

  • Summary: This game is fun but it takes a long time to complete. I am 12 and have had it for a year. i only play it once in a while because it gets boring and confusing at some parts. other than that it is a pretty good game. you even get chased by pirates if u have treasure on your ship.

Where's the food?!

Iris, Amazon
29 March 2011
  • Summary: OK here goes... I try to get ahead on food, pottery etc. I build a butcher shop and all he does is eat while the people are starving. Then before you know it your in the red and the population is dropping by the hundreds. Maybe it better to build the fishing docks at least they wont eat the fish. The treasure finding is very helpful when you find garments.

  • Summary: i have not played the other versions of this game so i cant compair.Like any other game it has its pros and cons. when you first start playing the game you have 2 options you can play story mode or a free form game. The story mode is cleverly set as one big tutorial. it slowly shows your how to build up adding one feature at a time.this made it easy for me and my little sister to under stand.

City Builder fans, take note! Great strategy game

Kathy Grace, Amazon
6 July 2010
  • Summary: I used to play the Sierra City Builder series on my PC, back in the days of Win95 and Win2K -- Emperor: Rise Of The Middle Kingdom , Zeus, and Pharaoh/Cleopatra. Alas, most of them don't run on modern versions of Windows. This delightful game is a great example of the city builder genre for the Nintendo DS. The tutorial gently eases you into the basics of gameplay (if you've never played this particular type of game before), and there is plenty of depth.

Tedious Version of Civilization/Sim City

Tom McGraw, Amazon
30 December 2009
  • Summary: This game tries to be like an exploration version of Civilization but turns into a very tedious adventure in detailed resource management at the Sim City level of detail without the fun. I like both Civ and Sim City, but this takes the worst of both. Confusing as well. Very very boring.

Surprisingly Good for a DS Game

  • Summary: For those of you who played the earlier version of this game (Anno 1701) you'll be right at home. The slick interface is back and better than ever, and now it's even easier to select buildings to build and such and so. The graphics are also greatly improved and so are the animations of the cities you build and the people moving around. If you are a veteran of the earlier version, you'll love this one bar none.

Fun!

Julie W, Amazon

  • Summary: I really think this game is fun! I didn't know at first because sometimes games like this are hard to learn. But this one is not at all! You can play on three skill levels and each one walks you through each step to building up your civilization. You have build buildings and also give the townspeople what they need. Overall, this game is challenging and fun and not hard to learn at all. There is not much difference between each skill level but all three levels are fun.
