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.
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.
