  1. There are few games that can sustain interest after the initial "oh wow!" factor wears off, but this title does just that with solid, if less convoluted action, that requires RTS thinking with an empire building twist.
  2. The lack of continual play is a drawback...This smacks too much of recent games to earn a truly high score.
  3. One of those games that you can play for months without them loosing their initial charm. This has been achieved using great cartoon-like design, but the game still has too many flaws, the biggest of them being that it is incapable of providing lasting and exciting gameplay.
  4. Takes the familiar "Settlers" community-management gameplay and manages to not screw it up in any meaningful way.
  5. So while the core gameplay is great fun, longevity does suffer from the inevitable repetitiveness and uneventful missions. Be wary.
  6. You won’t lack for things to fiddle with in this game, and at times you may feel a bit besieged by how much you need to manage. [Jan 2002, p.102]

    Extremely fun game, but gets boring after the first couple months of addiction.
