Summary: I love the Anno series, and honestly I was disappointed with this one. They've simplified a lot of the mechanics in 2070, and the interface is a bit more complicated. I do love online play and love the varying quest sets!! if you're new to Anno, try 1703 first..
Summary: This is a good game to play when it’s working. It crashed 3/4 of the way through the campaign. I tried to reinstall it several time but game just won’t launch again. I gave up on this and moved on.
Scraping barnacles would have been more productive -- and I don't even have a boat.

Summary: Utterly useless. I have never had more trouble with a game. It took hours to upload, then I found out that it cannot be played without an internet connection. I uploaded it on my parents' computer, but it behaved as if it was running when it wasn't. The Ubisoft forums were of no help.
Summary: Uplay is awful, but getting this game and all the expansion packs for under $15 is worth the headache. The anno series has a big learning curve. Fans of the series will enjoy the new factions, underwater layouts, and multiplayer. I have enjoyed many a game. Its addicting.. in a good way.
