    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.

    Streamlining done right, Anno 1800 is so addictive that it must remind you to take a stroll after some four hours of gameplay. Faithful to the Anno spirit, yet inventive, featuring a class system that offers many creative challenges.

    Anno 1800 offers up a compelling blend of city building and strategy in the industrial era, with a smooth learning curve and fantastically flexible and replayable sandbox mode that will have you starting and re-starting your trading empire as the hours sail by.

    The foundations of Anno 1800 are solid, and the game offers a diversified experience. Going back to the roots was a crucial decision, and I can say, with all certainty: this is one of the best strategy games of 2019. It's been a long while since we had such a lovely and absorbing game to play.

    Anno 1800 is an incredible looking city builder that is packed with historical detail and graphical richness, supported by a complex and sometimes inscrutable collection of systems underneath the smokestacks and row houses. Getting everything just right is a challenge but playing in the Victorian-era sandbox is a lot of fun and the milieu is well represented in all areas of design and execution. Fans of city builders and economic sims will both find a lot to enjoy about Anno 1800, the best entry in the franchise so far.

    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.

There have aThis game is nice but not so attractive until like addicted level. However, I'm still enjoying to play much in the sandbox mode. There have a bug need to fix in the campaign mode. I was stuck at the quest in Chapter 4 - Prosperity for All. Now is waiting for update patch to fix this issue. So far the rest is still enjoyable. I have compare Anno 1800 with Tropico 6. I will definitely choose Anno 1800 because the way we play and the game atmosphere also different. The BGM of this game is nice, also I was occupied 2 to 3 islands in the game to make all my ships to trade specific items between islands because some plants only can produce in specific islands. So I have to occupy the other islands to produce the specific items to supply my main island. Is quite fun to play but your brain need to do much in multitasking. Expand

    Sorry for breaking a cardinal rule here but it must be done. i have not played this game. I wanted greatly to play it but am once againSorry for breaking a cardinal rule here but it must be done. i have not played this game. I wanted greatly to play it but am once again face-to-face with the toxic corporate controlfreak culture of UbiSoft. I am directed to buy the game at the Epic/Ubisoft trap site, and there i find , once again to nobody's real surprise, that Ubisoft has inserted a profit-driven and misleading ruse to their sales campaign., namely using Steam, double-crossing Steam, and demanding that their profits increase through absolute contriol of the sales medium. To add insult to this injury , the transaction for $49.99 at Epic Games will magically not function, as if I'm supposed to believe that UbiSoft and Epic have an agreement that would allow their sales partner to have a broken sales app for two weeks, and i get miraculously redirected to UbiStore.gouge, where , lo and behold, I am invited to use their INHOUSE sales page to pay 60% more for the same item. This is nothing more than thinly and cheaply disguised bait-and-switch. , and it isn't the first time around for me and Ubisoft. Good-bye forever Ubisoft, you don't get one thin dime of the remaining $5,000 dollars I will spend on gaming over the next twenty years, because you are are nothing but sleazy resellers.. At this point, i can live without Anno 1800. I couldn't live with being your prey so buh-bye. Frowny Face Frowny Face Puke Face Angry Face Frowny Poo !!!11.

    How is it that fantastic games get continually damaged by this company and they are still in business? Because YOU, the buyer, allows them to get away with it and it is YOU, the buyer, that is to blame for the stupid herd mentality that is starting to pervade the industry. Entitled North Americans, or entitled irresponsible consumers from around the world, are buying untested poor quality games and proprietary, invasive, and predatory manureware that greatly degrades the gaming experience, acting as alpha and beta testers that actually PAY the COMPANY to get absolutely ripped off.
