    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.

That’s how good this game is. Yes, there are issues for people with lower end pc’s. The game not being on steam is annoying but you need uplay anyways to play it. Now about the game.

    With the addition of needing all workers lvls the trusted anno formula was given an extra layer. As with all anno games the campaign is okay but that’s not why most people buy the game. Sandbox mode is where you will spend most of your time.

    The starter difficulty options are fine for beginners, the jump from 1-2 is pretty big, the custom options are decent and in multiplayer with friends they will suffice. The options for your character are pretty limited but for me that’s a minor issue.

    Let’s get started, like all anno games you start with getting your basic construction recourses and village going. However because of the split in workforce and luxury goods the complexity is slightly higher than previous annos ( 2200 doesn’t count). No longer will 1 massive population island work.

    This adds something to the flavor of the game, you actually need people to work certain jobs. Personally this adds a feeling of realism and fun to the game. Having to juggle multiple islands across multiple continents isn’t easy but on lower difficulty levels it’s pretty forgiving.

    There’s plenty of variety in products to produce and trade. Trade routes can get messy at a certain point. I think I failed more than once because I didn’t correctly use my trade routes. Or pirates simply sunk my ships.

    The AI isn’t great, I play for the building aspect so it doesn’t bother me. Don’t except genius strategy or plays from them. They will on higher levels give you good competition for islands.

    TLDR: good looking game with minor issues on lower end systems. Lots of variety in goods and production chains. However the AI is lackluster at best don’t expect much from it. Great as a city building type game but that’s about it.

    Score: 9
    Explication: personally I feel like we have returned to the old anno formula, with updated graphics, better engine and improved gameplay. Yes I’m aware that the game is not perfect, however if you like building and figuring out how to supply and keep your city happy this game will keep you busy for a long time.

    第一次完整的体验纪元。独有的产业链系统确实颇有意思,尤其是在每次产业升级的时候都得做些惊天动地的调整。其次本作的双地图系统也颇为出彩,应该是继承自上一作。算是产业链系统的一次纵向延展,让管理变得更加复杂且更加有乐趣。接下来要说的应该是本作新增的股份机制,比起毒打果然还是资本铁锤厉害。第一次完整的体验纪元。独有的产业链系统确实颇有意思,尤其是在每次产业升级的时候都得做些惊天动地的调整。其次本作的双地图系统也颇为出彩,应该是继承自上一作。算是产业链系统的一次纵向延展,让管理变得更加复杂且更加有乐趣。接下来要说的应该是本作新增的股份机制,比起毒打果然还是资本铁锤厉害。通过不停的种田积累的财富来买断对手的岛屿达到不费一兵一卒全灭对手的效果。而且期间还能获得分红。本作最让我诟病的就是根本不给予玩家任何消灭对手的奖励。无论通过任何手段消灭对手,玩家获得的都是一块空地。这就很迷离了,通过战争手段还好解释,一切都在战火的摧残下灰飞烟灭。但我明明是买断的股份呀。其次就是敌人堪称弱智的外交智商,在我几近占领某AI股份的时候,其居然宣我了。害我只能读档重来。因为上述原因我其实根本不想摧毁它,只是想不停的吸血而已。整体而言是一款十分有乐趣的作品。 Expand

Despite the similarities in setting to 1404 its baffling to see how much the predecessor got better than this new entry. A shame really, since 1800 has the potential core to be a worthy follow up, but falls short on too many sides Expand
