Summary: I have all the Anno games and have enjoyed them all. Anno 1404 is just, if not more, challenging than the others. If you like building, feeding, fighting and all the things that make up using the "little gray cells" than this is a game you should try.
Summary: So I'll admit that I have not reached a point in this game that I would call "I beat it" but this game has several different things that make me really enjoy just casually playing it for hours on end. I'm a sucker for town building, resource gathering/management games and this one has so many different features in it that I can sit down and play it for quite a while without getting tired of it. Recommend it if you have been a fan of the "Settlers" series.
Summary: I got this game as a gift and it won't play. I'm bummed because I love these games and apparently won't be able to play any of the newer versions on my new pc. I had 1701 on my last pc but obviously it won't load on the new one and I saw reviews where people had problems loading it on windows 7. 1503 plays but I've played that out.

Summary: thank you Europe for box editions especially box gold editions this game a strategic shipping and city building game has greatly advanced from the last graphics engine and textures in the previous game without changing the gameplay very much so if you enjoy the series this gold addition is the one to get
Summary: One of the most fun and relaxing RTS/Citybuilding games out there. The combat system isn't that great, but the game makes up for it in many different ways. There's a good trade system, beautiful graphics and many different challenges for the player.
Summary: I got this game and it would not even complete the download because there was some type of error with the disk itself. I was able to get a full refund quickly, but ended up having to buy the game from another source to be able to insure a download that would actually work.
Defective Install -- Cannot Install on Two Different PCs

Summary: As noted by other users, there are CRC errors during installation. Some say you can fix it by replacing the corrupt file after installation, replacing the corrupt file with the good file from the demo game. However I notice that the file in the demo was about half the size of the full game and I read on the forums that not all the building are present when you patch it with the demo files.
