Too few games like this exist

Aurania, Amazon

  • Summary: I absolutely love this style of game (similar in style to SimCity, Caesar III, or Tropico). It involves building colonies from scratch and starting with few resources and a handful of settlers, then slowly building up resources, obtaining new settlers, managing the needs of your citizens, establishing trade routes, and ultimately building an empire.

Unable to play

Travis Hedberg, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • Summary: After downloading and installing the game will not launch. I uninstalled it and tried a second time with the same results. As this download was on sale for only five dollars I have written it of as a complete waste and will not be buying anything more from Ubisoft through Amazon.

Awesome Game

Jordan, Amazon

  • Summary: If you're looking for a game that is similar to Age of Empires but want a more challenging experience, then this is it. The economic aspect of this game can be tedious, but really turns out to be the gem of this game. One game can last you many hours to complete, and sometimes can last you a couple of days.

Nearly identical to "1701"

Aerlumron, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: I like this game but is nearly identical to "1701". I would feel I wasted my money except that this was a download and easier to access than getting my "1701" disc out etc Download and install: no difficulties; program runs fine too My system is getting out of date and still no problems.

Don't expect twogames for price of one

James B. Zehmer "ironbudd", Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a good game, but as many have noted, you will likely only be able to play the Venice expansion. The patch mentioned elsewhere doesn't mitigate an unexpected error 13:6, apparently the result of UBISoft software protection. Still, the Venice game is great, but was disappointed that I couldn't play the original version. Caveat Emptor.

Steep learning curve

Robert G. Lawhead "ship modeler", Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: This is of course an older strategy type game, which appeals to older people with OCD. It loaded and ran well on Windows 7, although it's designed OS was XP. There is essentially no manual. Ubisoft assumes you have played previous games in the series, or that you will consult the various Internet forums to figure out how to play the thing. As always, Ubisoft customer service is worthless. I usually play the campaigns, or the set challenges that are included.

Great game for the strategy fans.

ealadin, Amazon
24 August 2013
  • Summary: It is a slow paced game but is still so neat to build a city, trade supplies, and produce your own economic empire. I have been a ANNO game fan since I bought the older 1602 game over a decade ago. Newer graphics and a quest line makes this a better game and more fun that the older ones. Also works on newer computers better than the older ones.
