Summary: Basically my first contact with the series and a rather unpleasant surprise. Unbelievably lame story and characters (so infantile) and the gameplay itself is kinda... after 10 missions I feel like i keep doing the same **** so I'm gonna drop this, this is a very weak 6/10.
Summary: I purchased this game and had a great time playing it. However, when I tried the Online game, it asked me to input a CD Key. I informed Amazon and seller that the game is asking a CD Key; which the game didn't seem to have included when I purchase it.
Summary: I purchased this game specifically for the online co-op play. I was disappointed since the game would not validate my key. With the latest updates you can play without the CD/DVD, and play LAN mode. LAN is strictly head to head with no computer player option.
Summary: There are two games called "The Settlers" both have several editions. This one was not the one I was looking for. The one I like is very similar to this game except the settlers are extremely cute and the game has more depth and prettier graphics.
Summary: I was very excited about this next installment in the Settlers series. The last one being very replayable and quite imaginitive. I'm somewhat disappointed in this one. It seems they took a step back instead of forward.
Summary: A farmer walks out during the warm season and collects his wheat, which he in turn takes back into town. There, a baker turns the wheat into bread, which will be bought and consumed by an iron minor.
Strong city-building sim, but lacks anything resembling a challenge.

Summary: Alright. Let's see here. This was hyped to me as "Like Stronghold 2, except with more focus on city life than combat." That was a pretty fair comparison. In Settlers, your main object of any mission is to build up a city infrastructure and promote your knight to new ranks in order to gain access to...
Summary: Not very good at all. It gets repetative after 2 skirmish games. I say buy it used or forget about it. I am cutting my lossed after buyig this dreck and the bug-ridden mess that is The Settlers 2 the 10 Anniversary.
Summary: Bought this game wishing to relive my earlier experiences with games in the series. For simple city-building gameplay it's excellent. In terms of real-time strategy however I found the game lacking, but the graphics and pleasant gameplay made up for this.
Summary: I remember settlers when it first came out and I enjoyed it. This revision is graphically superior, but a lot of the control seam to be carried out by the AI, leaving you very little to worry about and there's alway more than enough raw materials to win each level without trying too hard.
