The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: It's a shame that Ubisoft have burdened The Settler's 7 with such an unreliable anti-piracy measure, as it is likely to put a lot of people off purchasing what is a pleasurable, complex and involving strategy game. If you've got a solid Internet connection and some spare cash you might want to consider braving the DRM, or you can hope that Ubisoft will stop being so bloody stubborn, realise the error of their ways and scale down the DRM so that everybody can enjoy the...

Review: Railworks 2: Train Simulator

New Gamer Nation
2 September 2011
  • Conclusion: All in all, Railworks 2: Train Simulator is a solid game. It is also worth mentioning that anyone who purchases Railworks 2 will receive a free upgrade to the next version of the game, Train Simulator 2012 , due out at the end of this month. Personally, this reviewer is excited to see what the developer has added and upgraded.

Come Back, Everyone! Settlers Is Good Again!

Game Debate
7 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Let's get the obvious out of the way and address the elephant in the room. Settlers 7 is an Ubisoft title featuring the much-maligned DRM system that requires you to be connected to their server to play their games. It's every bit as dreadful as you've heard. More than half of the times I've launched the game I've been greeted by an error message telling me the server isn't available.
  • Pros: Return to form, Nice art style, Nostalgiarific
  • Cons: A little slow for some, Questionable stability, Horrible DRM

Expert Review

GameSpot
6 April 2010
  • Summary: The little workers that follow your orders in The Settlers 7 are a tireless lot. They mine for coal, shear sheep, chop wood, and smelt iron yet ask for so little in return. In fact, if you don't have anything for them to do, they might cry out for a little work to ease the burden of their own laziness. And when you play this economy-heavy strategy game, you'll be just as busy--and content--as these tiny computer people.
  • Pros: Well-balanced maps make it fun to establish supply chains, Charming visuals and soundtrack, Clever social networking features and other minor delights, Victory point system leads to some tense matches
  • Cons: Broken online copy protection might keep you from playing, Scattered interface irritations, Off-putting blur effects

The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom review

Gameplanet
20 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Lurking deep below the surface is a game unyielding in its ability to penalise the player for any minor discretion. The Settlers have certainly come of age, and despite various flaws, it's probably the most comprehensive release of the series so far.
  • Pros: Incredible attention to detail. Wonderful cinematics, good voice acting, a decent campaign length and appropriate multiplayer options. No install limit.
  • Cons: Resource management is unforgiving. Building placement likewise. AI pathing is somewhat dubious on occasion. Military action should require more human input. The requirement to be online at all times (even in single player) is about as welcome as a fork to the larynx.
