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than getting my "1701" disc out etc Download and install: no difficulties; program runs fine too My system is getting out of date and still no problems.
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.
Summary: We're back in a time of ship trade and exploration. You are given a land by higher powers and told to create, build and most importantly, discover. And so I did. I created a solid city that was able to support itself (minus outside luxury goods needed) I continued to explore and expand.

Summary: Dawn of Discovery is a good game. I am more of a casual gamer, trying to have fun rather than beating anything or anyone. The graphics on the game are stunning. The premise is simple enough, and is fun to play along with for a while. After some time, it does become quite repetitive.
Summary: A game which is entertaining for a couple of days, before becoming boring. There is very little variation between games and combat is very poorly implemented. May entertain fans of the genre, but this game's depth is superficial.
Summary: Money is better spent on Spore or Sims 3. This game is a real snoozer and plays much like German boards such as Carcassonne, Settlers of Cataan and things like that. You will literally just sit and watch and watch and watch and be bored out of your mind.
