Great game but NO CD KEY in the box

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. I agreed to purchase the game AGAIN, and return the first one ( I ended up keeping the first anyway and gave it away as a present...UNFORTUNATELY, the second box didn't contain the CD KEY either.
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. I don't know why they couldn't have offered co-op in LAN. Ubisoft support was terrible.
Summary: Not what i had in mind for a 2007 game. The grafics are poor, and the gameplay is kind of boring. The idea behind the game is interesting, but i dont think the game is very atracting, mostly becose of the lack of imagination.
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. You still build your little community, farm, mine, etc . . . but having played both the other version is a lot more fun! That said, this game is still pretty fun.
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. The missions are quite repetative, the characters one dimensional, the city building limited and boring and the story lines themselves are merely to get you from point point A to Point B.
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. The iron minor brings iron ore into town which a blacksmith will pick up, and turn into swords, which will be used by your fighting men paid for by the taxes of everyone on this chain. It's the social chains like this that make Settler RoE a unique game.
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 better buildings. It's a beautiful game to play.
Summary: Habe angefangen zu spielen und Kampagne Nr. 11 geht leider nicht. Vielleicht bei Kampagne 10 weitergespielt nach gewonnen und jetzt geht es nicht zum Schluss??? Sollte bei einem Spiel eigentlich nicht passieren. Vom Aufbau und den Freien spielen ist es ok für viele Tage Spielspass.
Summary: Etwas vorweg Zunächst einmal muss ich and er Stelle erwähnen, dass ich großer Siedlerfan bin. Ich habe wirklich vom ersten Teil an alle gespielt, bin also wirklich damit groß geworden. Wie viele andere bin auch ich der Ansicht, dass der zweite Teil( Die Siedler 2- Veni, Vidi, Vici) bis heute unangefochten der beste ist. Wer erwartet, mit diesem Produkt etwas ähnlich innovatives und suchterzeugendes wie Siedler 2 zu bekommen, dem rate ich ausdrücklich vom Kauf ab.
Pros: nette Grafik, gutes Wirtschaftskonzept
Cons: langweilige Story, kein Langzeitspaß, ungenügende Kampfelemente
