Summary: This game was an absolute waste of money! The Settlers DS game has a malfunction so that you cannot save your game! You can be playing for a couple of hours, then suddenly the game will stall and you will loose the lot! It's a shame because otherwise it would have been a good game.
Summary: I love this game, and i love how simple using it on the DSi is, however the small screen means you spend more time trying to get to the bit of map that you want than actually playing - would be better on a tablet i think though :)
Summary: Having played hours and hours of the original Settlers games, I needed to own this one as well. I was not dissapointed, the game is just as good as the old one. Same interaction as in the real game. No problems with game being unstable.
Amiga/PC classic - Settlers, now available on the Nintendo DS
29 July 2009
Excerpt: This review is for the Nintendo DS game, The Settlers, developed by Blue Byte and published by Ubisoft. It's a strategy game where you have to look after your islanders, construct buildings and protect them.
Pros: Good games concept
Cons: Too many bugs and control problems, no tutorial mode
Summary: If you are a fan of the Settlers PC games (as I am) then you will not be disappointed with this game. I have not experienced any of the crashes or problems loading that other gamers have mentioned - just hours of fun game play!
Excerpt: I haven't played the PC version of this game, and so my first experience of this game was on the Nintendo DS. There are three ways to play this game, Freeplay, Roman Campaign and World Campaign.
Pros: Lots of maps to play
Cons: Takes a little time to get used to the gameplay
Summary: I was addicted to the Settlers games when they first came out many years ago but slightly disappointed when they updated the graphics of the characters in later versions as I felt it took away some of their charm.
Summary: This game rates as the worst game I've ever posessed in over twenty years of gaming. Anyone expecting a halfways playable game will be sorely disappointed. The menu structure is abysmal, and the graphics are way below what I'd expect.
