Summary: When will I ever learn. So like others here, I install it, and can I just go ahead and play??? No, I have to first run some updater, OK, I do that, says I need to register on some website, I click cancel because I don't want to do that nonsense nor should I have to, so the game starts over again, says I need to update again, I do, just takes me back to the register online screen. Really would like to review the game itself but unfortunately I cannot even play it.
Horrible. Doesn't even work. May crash your computer hard like it did mine.

Summary: Can't get it to work after many days trying internet fixes on high end win 8.1 machine with NVIDIA graphics. How do I get a refund? Feel free to invalidate my product code as I can't get it to run anyway.
Summary: I'm an avid gamer, but Anno 2070 is an INSULT to gaming. It is so buggy and half-finished that the first campaign doesn't even work properly and the DRM is INCREDIBLY frustrating to deal with. Once you manage to work your way past the massive amounts of bugs and get through the DRM, HOURS later you finally figure out that the game has no real tutorial, so you stuck just clicking around randomly. Sad, sad, sad, example of a game that could have been great but FTW.
Summary: I downloaded this game. When I click on it to play, it brings up the Uplay launcher.. its always checking for updates, and it wont just play the damn game! It didnt even make an icon on my desk top for the game! Im so annoyed! And Uplay wont connect to my internet, so Im assuming its making it impossible for me to play this damn game!
Summary: I bought Anno 2070 looking for a strategy game with some depth and was sorely disappointed. I played through the campaign missions, expecting it to unlock a feature that would add depth to the game. It didn't happen, 12 hours later I was still making simplistic decisions and waiting for boxes to fill up.
Summary: I got this game on Amazon because it had a very good price, but upon receiving it i downloaded the game, but it would not run. It said it needed updates but the auto updater would not work. I was able to get a full refund very quickly and I am happy about that but very disappointed that the game i had anticipated so long would not run.
Summary: So I don't know if the game is any good, it's been hours of updates, controls, stuff to enter, etc... It's the worst pain I have ever had to deal with in a game. I bought it yesterday and haven't been able to play it because of the never-ending patching. At this point, I'm not sure I still want to play the thing.
Summary: A bit of a snoore-fest. I played it for a few hours but felt like I was back in kindergarten. Perhaps I didn't give it enough of a chance, but when I have nearly nil motivation to keep playing it, I just cant waste the time on this title that it may need or deserve in order to want to keep going.
