Summary: I enjoy this game. I like building up the little islands and keeping everything balanced. The game isn't glitchy or slow. It does have a cut scene after every level that isn't overly exciting, but it does give you the option to skip it. You won't be lost as to what your next mission is if you do skip. It gives you the option to play in easy, medium or hard.
Summary: I own both the PC version of Dawn of Discovery (also called "Anno 1404") and the Wii version now. There are distinct differences between the two, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses that are completely unique. In this game, there are two options for play. In one, free play, you can build however you wish and everything's open to you.
Summary: There are so many video games out there for the hardcore gamer but not so many for the more casual player. This game is fun but not too easy and quite addictive. It is a stategy type game and therefore uses your mind more than your fingers! For the price, it can't be beat.
Summary: This is a really fun game that is confusing at first then gets easier after you have gotten used to the game. You can build colonies and make civilizations and lots,lots more! (okay that kind of sounded like an ad ) any ways it is a good game.
Summary: I was looking for a nice, kid friendly game, sat down to get them started in it, and 15 hours later I re-surfaced. This is an addictive game which entertains my 7 and 9 year old as well as me. The different scenarios within the story mode easily convince you the game could be played multiple times and be just as intriguing.
Summary: Make sure you do not have anything to accomplish in the real world for quite a while before you start this game. You hear that double clang of the ship's bell to start the game and BANG . .there goes 4 hours! The pace is great, the advisors keep you focused on the action and yet can keep you off balance because of the reminders about what needs to be addressed. Islands to settle, tax rates to set, public building to construct and crops to manage.
Summary: I was skeptical of this game, but am glad to have made the purchase. Dawn of Discovery is a wonderful game for the Wii and offers many enjoyable hours of play. I'm now considering buying the PC version of the game.
