    The game is both immersive and addicting, involving you as the player and requiring you to keep an eye on a virtual land, it's efficiency and survival. With great in-game graphics and audio, The Settlers is highly recommended for people who digg the likes of Command and Conquer, Age of Empires, or RTS genre.

    This isn't the most accessible game you'll play, but Core gamers that enjoy RTS titles will eat up The Settlers.

    The Settlers for iPhone is still a quality title but I can't recommend it unless you think that balancing your checking account is exciting.
