Great game for the strategy fans.

ealadin, Amazon

  • 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.

Good, but Long Game

John W Dalton, Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: I really wanted to find a game like Rise of Nations. While this game is fun. I have 15 hours invested into one game already, and still no where near completion. More like Sim City then a true Real Time Strategy game.

Great Game. A ton of micro-managing

  • Summary: I got this game for a few dollars on sale. I only played for a few days, but I still consider it a great purchase and a great experience to have played it. Pros: -Great Graphics -Good Interface -Solid Gameplay Cons: -A lot of micro-managing trade and resources - eventually caused me to quit in frustration. -Most scenarios are pointless.

Anno 1404; The year was 1404....

Elgabojhc, Amazon
13 December 2012
  • Summary: ...and people were eager to explore, for adventure, for glory and fame, for honor, for religion. It's the age of true adventure, and this game does a good job at showing all that had to go and be done to be able to set sail and discover the world, and the what had to be managed in a way or another when landfall or contact with other people or civilization was made. It's fun, and especially amazing for history buffs.

Base not working

C. R. GILES, Amazon
13 April 2012
  • Summary: I am trying to get the base game to work so I can learn that one first but I can only get the Venice exp pack to play....so, I am not sure of a rating yet...if anyone has advice on this issue, please let me know. When I click on the base game, it does nothing. Only when I click on the Venice icon does that one play. update...got it to work! Excellent game but needs a tad better tutorial.

Good Economy Building Game

Jred22, Amazon
17 January 2012
  • Summary: This game is pretty cool. I had no issues downloading from Amazon and no issues installing on my Windows 7 Pc. I found the game to be addicting. I think it took me 10 hours to finish one scenario. You focus mostly on building your economy by growing resources and trading with your other towns or other players. As your towns grow in population you gain access to new products to grow, mine, or build. Not a whole lot of warring although there is some.

Fun Game

bingonator, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: The game is great. My wife especially loves it because she enjoys the tedium of micromanagement. For $20, you'll get plenty of entertainment hours from it. But, make sure that your ready to invest the hours into getting familiar with the mechanics and the resource tree. My only complaint is that the gold edition is only available via download. This means that we don't have a disc that we can sell later.

enjoyable game

johagan0092, Amazon
6 August 2011
  • Summary: Had prior versions of this game. This one has more options and chalanges. Like the game because it does not require building for war. Each selection has a pro and con as to how the game will continue. The only problem is that it is a 32bit version and cannot access all the memory in a 64 bit computer. While I have 4 meg, it is only using 2 meg.

It's About Trade and Diplomacy

M. Starke "Polymathes", Amazon
3 August 2011
  • Summary: In Dawn of Discovery you will find yourself landing on deserted islands with nothing more than a some lumber and a few tools. Your job is to colonize the island and attract settlers to work for you and pay taxes so that you can afford to improve and expand your colony while warding of those from outside who covet your wealth and success. That's the game in a nutshell.
