Showing 1-10 of 20
this is a VERY good game!
14 November 2010
Summary: Now, over than 6 month after the release and about 10 patches, this game is nothing less than excellent. For $20 or even less, you will have hours and hours of great fun in this beautiful world. I have been playing nearly daily for the last two weeks and I am still discovering new strategies and tactics. The game is fairly simple, while preserving a fair amount of depth for people enjoying strategy. The DRM is still a problem, in some cases.
Excerpt: "This is truly the best Strategy PC game i have ever played in my opinion. The game allows you to play in many differnt type of game modes, from campaign where each level you complete missions and to skirmishes where you play games against the computer. The basic idea behind the game is to build up your realm, establish a good economy and army and defeat players around you. But this game does the little things that i think make a game awesome, i mean ...
Pros: Will have you blown away
Cons: need a constant internet connection to play .
Conclusion: I absolutely do not know what the previous people who put down reviews are talking about. First of all mouse is working fine from start, no problem there. Secondly, this game is fantastic from the interface to the animation and the game strategy. I have been playing almost straight for 3 days and its brilliant. I can advise to do Campaign part of the game at first, as it will teach you few tricks which can be useful to you.
Conclusion: All the best of settlers 1 and 2 without any of the down sides. I am surprised at the poor reviews of this game so far. Settlers 7 has a steep learning curve that requires dedication to overcome. If you are looking for a simple and lazy game take a pass on this one, if you are looking to get stuck in to a rich and complicated strategy game get it now.
Conclusion: This is my first Settlers title, purely because of the limited range available for my new Mac, but I have to say I am really enjoying it. After a few initial problems, which were rectified with a reinstall and patch download, I started the tutorial campaign which takes you through everything you need to know. I find the visuals quite stunning but like I say I'm new to the Mac so this may be the norm...
If you forget about the DRM protection, this is a brilliant game

Excerpt: "...a lot of criticism over the new settlers game due to the fact that this game is one of the many DRM protected games which every PC Gamer hates as it limits the number of times which you can install this game onto a PC system. But if you take no notice and look at the game as it is, it is a very enjoyable game to play. The aim of the game in the main storyline is that you are a princess, whose father says you can't have his kingdom yet and become ...
Pros: Several Hours of Fun, fairly cheap game .
Cons: DRM Protection, Constant Internet Connection Required .
