    This typical misstep aside, Anno 1800 is an otherwise excellent history-themed simulator that excels at drawing players into its satisfying gameplay loop and keeping them there.

    Rarely before has it been so hard for me in my game tester career, not to award a 90s rating.

    Anno 1800 manages to find its place back between the heavyweights of the genre by getting back to its roots and expanding on the successful formula that made the previous games great. The gameplay is deep, complex, and at the same time simple enough for the newcomers to jump in, and its definitely one of the best entries in the Anno series, if not the best.

    Big, busy and pretty, you can be confident of a good management game that doesn’t take itself too seriously, so long as they can get past some certain disheartening design choices.

    It's a really unique experience. A large part of the game is focused on exploration and it is a true ode to orientalism. A gaming pleasure combined with the visual and sound beauty. Probably the best Anno episode in the history of the series.

    A vibrant snapshot of the Victorian era that’s bustling with character, but doesn’t explore the intriguing, seismic politics of the period.

    In short version: This is the best anno game that I have ever played!

    In short version: This is the best anno game that I have ever played!

    What I alywas wanted is in this game:
    • you run expeditions to find new land and items
    • you play concurently on four maps!
    • a log of products! And their dependencies between maps!

    What I miss is better ship filters or just possibility to filter using entered text.
    Second thing I miss is a big map view - it could be something like in supreme commander when you zoom out really far.

    I was sad that I didn't know that I could change AI players or even disable them by right-click... I wouldn't play with that fat leady but now... She's gone ;-)

    Nice thing is also possibility to walk the streets! And I don't know why I have learned this from somebody movie but not the game! :(

For example I do enjoy the change of having to manage my workforce now instead of just building my production without worrying if I have enough workers. Slowly building up your small city into a huge empire just makes fun in this game. Beautiful looking with many details and also a great soundtrack. Besides many positive aspects the game lacks in the campaign, which is quite generic and they surely could have done better, also the battle system - now without landbattles as in Anno 1404 - might not be everyones taste. Taking those 2 main things in consideration with the technical issues some player seem to have it is a 8, if they fix the technical problems it could be an 8,5-9. In my opinion Anno 1800 takes over the title from Anno 1404 of beeing the best in the whole Anno Series. Edit: What might be worth noting for some ppl that there are no additional scenarios like in previous Anno parts Expand

    Meine Erfahrungen mit Anno sind eher gemischt bisher, würde den Kauf nicht empfehlen bis alle Probleme behoben sind.

    Die Hauptmissionen
    Meine Erfahrungen mit Anno sind eher gemischt bisher, würde den Kauf nicht empfehlen bis alle Probleme behoben sind.

    Die Hauptmissionen sind teils verbugt, ich komm bereits bei der ersten "Neuen Welt" mission nicht mehr weiter, weil das Frachteil fehlt. Ein patch wurde angekündigt jedoch unklar wann dieser released wird, der Multiplayer Modus (so wie bereits in den letzten Teilen) ist eine reinste Katastrophe "Partie gefunden" heißt es irgendwann und es passiert nichts mehr. Da bin ich mir ziemlich sicher, dass wieder die altbekannten Verbindungsprobleme bereits vorprogrammiert sind, wenn nichtmal Partien zu Stande kommen können.

    Des Weiteren sind die Seeschlachten einfach nur ägerlich die Schiffe müssten öfters den Fein fahrend attackieren, jedoch scheint dies zuviel verlangt von der KI so bringt es mir kaum etwas Schiffe in Stellung zu bringen, bis die KI beginnt zu fahren ist der Feind bereits längst über alle Berge. Probleme gibt auch bei den Handelsrouten, denn Routen zwischen alter Welt und neuer Welt können nicht variable verändert werden (z.B. um einen Feind zu umschiffen).

    Meines erachtens nach hätten sie das Spiel nicht so früh veröffentlichen sollen, denn einige Fehler sind geradezu offensichtlich. In meinem Auge aktuell ein Early Access Titel zum Vollpreis.

    Meine Empfehlung 3-6 Monate warten und erstmal Tropico genießen, nach dem ersten richtigen Basen-Bau ist man bereits frustriert
