    Brings back full memories of the early days of the pc game. well rendered and thoughtful, with enough intact from the original to make it worthwhile. the screen usage is surprisingly adept but the slipping framerate and occasional control confusion may annoy. overall, bravo...at least for nostalgics.

    Unfortunately, the ambitious attempt to bring the full-fledged experience to the DS results in something of a mess. [July 2007, p.97]
  2. Settlers II is a great game. A classic. This version isn't. It's a travesty, and one that should never have been released. Without the fatal bugs it'd be a disappointing put passable conversion but you can't play a game not knowing when or if the game will actually work the way it's supposed to, or if saving your progress will cause it to crash.

    Whilst Settlers does its job reasonably well, the fact that there are so many occasions in which little occurs within the game is a little disappointing. However, if you have a great deal of patience Settlers is a relatively rewarding game.
