Summary: I downloaded the game to a Dell Laptop with windows 7. I have had this laptop for about 3 months and it never had a problem until I downloaded this game. It is advertised to work on Windows 7, but it locked up on mine and I had to force a shutdown. There are no returns on games and contacting the manufacturer is a joke.
Summary: RTS fans and/or Parents looking for a game for their child: My Background: I'm an Veteran about these RTS games. Blizzard's Warcraft/Starcraft Franchises, the CaveDog TA franchises, the Command and Conquer Franchises, are all familiar to me, as well as lesser known titles ranging from the mediocre depths of KK&D to the sophisticated heights of Homeworld. I've been playing them since I was a kid, though I'm rooted most firmly in Sid Mier's Civilization series.
Summary: This Game comes with the "copy-protection" securom. securom is a destructive root kit which will corrupt many of the Games you have payed hard earned Money for. Although I think Rise of an Empire is a perfectly fine game, the fact that it is designed to become unplayable overtime makes it not worth your Money. This is my opinion.
Summary: I have not played any other Settler games but jumped on this one as it looked very promising. This game has proved to be boring and repetitious, every scenario starts the same and you have to sit around and wait for goods to pile up in the storehouse before you can get on with the task at hand.
Summary: Zu den Produktdetails haben sich andere ja schon ausführlich ausgelassen, insofern beschränke ich mir hier nur auf den Bericht meiner schlechten Erfahrungen: Zu Weihnachten bekam ich Die Siedler 6 geschenkt. Doch meine Freude war bald am Boden zerstört. Ein paar wenige Male bekam ich das Spiel ans Laufen, doch in 95% aller Versuche des Starts kam trotz eingelegter Original-DVD die Fehlermeldung "Bitte legen Sie die Original-DVD ein".
Pros: konnte ich leider nicht herausfinden
Cons: Kopierschutz lässt die DVD nicht erkennen, somit nicht spielbar für mich
