    ANNO 2070 is the perfect game for everyone who loves to tweak an economy and build large scale cities. Especially the endgame is really complex with many things to do. A must have for every ANNO-Player.

    The developers have succeeded in creating a game faithful to the tradition and at the same time a game full of new elements and mechanics, that make it feel fresh. All that, plus a great campaign and a variety of multiplayer options make Anno 2070 an excellent game and even some technical issues can't change that.

    The sci-fi city building of Anno 2070 is a fresh take on a familiar genre. Expect to get hooked, and stay hooked.

    Putting aside minor hindrances, the game is a pleasant revival of the legendary franchise, displaying high replayability, relative to recent games. [February 2012]

Anno 2070, as the name suggests, is about a near future where you must know how to manage cities and resources. This game made me spent hours of gameplay and I don't intend to stop playing. The big difference of this game compared to its predecessors is the multiplayer. The community is able to vote on global matters, choose a new president for the council, etc. Gameplay is fantastic, sound is overwhelming and campaign is quite interesting. You will find some minor problems such as voice acting doesn't seem to be good and some small typos in the text. However, I'm pretty sure such things will get fixed on future patches. This is a must buy game if you enjoy city management. Congratulations to Blue Byte! Expand

I never played any Anno games in this series and only played this one, but this game is really something. The features of World President voting and Current & World Events are not implemented in other RTS's on the market right now. Everything in the world affects your game! The graphic is beautiful, the music is enchanting, and the game-play will keep you up for hours just like the Civilization series. This is not a traditional RTS game where you can build units really fast and go crush the enemies. It is more than that, and it makes the word 'strategy' more important than ever. Multiplayer is hard because this game takes time, but there is a save and load system that works for multiplayer so you can shoot up a map alone, and then have someone join you later in multiplayer. Please buy this game and support Blue Byte, even though we all know Ubisoft DRM policy is ridiculous. This game is a real gem and I have not seen anything like it before. There are lots of things you can do in the game and lots of NPC's to interact with and lots of special items that you can discover. You will not regret buying this game, because it will makes you really happy when you see your islands fill with bustling futuristic cities, pretty worker robots deliver your goods, and your production buildings busy producing things for your cities. The underwater world is also very pretty and crucial to your nation's development. Everything about this game is great!!! Expand

Just like the rest of the Anno series, this game presents hours of appeal andUnderwater cities, massive air/sea battles, and sushi... oh my. Just like the rest of the Anno series, this game presents hours of appeal and challenge for all style of sim/strategy gamers. It can be as easy or tough as you wish to make it, and that's not even messing with the game settings. You can chose to be one of 2 factions, or eventually in your game progression take on aspects (fully if you wish) of both AND a sub faction! And the truly fun part about it in my opinion is that it's not just about throwing up tons of production buildings and building a massive army to conquer the world... actually, wait... strike that, it can be about that! Or you can balance trade and diplomacy and have allies fight for you. Or not even fight at all!

    The touch of balancing an ecosystem at the same time is fantastic! Fantastic in the fact that you don't have to necessarily balance the ecosystem at all if you don't want. Whether you don't mind strip mining an entire land down to bedrock to grab as much resources as possible early on or tactfully balance your production and resources for the long run without having to pickup and move around in search of more is really fun.

    This is one of the truly first games I've ever played where the replayability is so high because you can completely tweak the way you play even when your halfway through a game already. This game is well worth it to purchase off the get-go!

ANNO 2070 is is a nice RTS that will keep you playing for hours on end, but the learning curve is ungodly steep and just plain brutal for new players. The instructions are so inadequate and poorly elaborated upon that I wouldn't be surprised if you were to uninstall within the first hour of playing.

    There is an insane amount of depth with the gameplay inside the game with all the things you could possibly do to advance your city to the next level. There is a ton of freedom to do whatever you will, even within the main campaign. You'll find yourself spending hours upon hours trying to balance your city perfectly so that you don't bleed cash and throw yourself into debt to the point of no return.

    At the end of the day though, I would say that the game was designed more for the non-campaign modes. There are only around two dozen predefined missions. The replay value comes from either playing randomly generated maps or multiplayer.

    Overall, the game is aesthetically pleasing and there is much to love about the gameplay, as long as you can get past the steep learning curve. I imagine this game gets mixed ratings because of its your-mileage-may-vary kind of gameplay. Or because it's owned by Ubisoft and runs with their DRM.

The building of a cityThis game looks great, and there is plenty of different missions for you to do, as well as the multiplayer function. The building of a city becomes a little repetitive after a while... I tried playing with some friends, and we had to set up a VPN to get it going! That was highly frustrating. It really gave me a bad impression of the game. I am not sure it is worth full price, but maybe on a sale, give it a go. Expand

Anno 2070 is dogs balls boring, dont waste your cash, the pretty graphics and eco sound track are nice but there is no game here to be had hence the score of 2. Despite being patched to the very latest version of the game there are still bugs like a strange warning about running out of memory when I can alt tab and see there is easily 1.5GB left on my machine. You cant even buy a unit to defend yourself until you have ascended to level 3 which takes about 3 hours! The original civilisation or starcraft games kick this game for six and they came out like 10 years ago.. ok rant over with ... YOU WERE WARNED. Expand

    Tout de même bizarre les Anno puisque le 1404 ne réclamait aucune espèce d'activation et marchait sans rien, c'est-à-dire sans Uplay... maisTout de même bizarre les Anno puisque le 1404 ne réclamait aucune espèce d'activation et marchait sans rien, c'est-à-dire sans Uplay... mais c'est vrai qu'il date un brin le machin, ceci expliquant cela sans doute. En tout cas, je mets la galette et j'installe, tout a l'air normal... puis je lance Anno 2070, il s'auto-patche tout seul comme un grand ! bah dis donc, c'est plutôt sympa, ça.

    Puis il demande vers la fin du patch la clé. Bon ok, bon prince je lui rentre la clé (je suis bon prince). Il termine, je relance Anno 2070. Tiens, il lance Uplay maintenant... et là direct un message à la con "clé non valide". Et dans ma bibliothéque youplaie, aucun Anno 2070 ?...

    Alors, je lui re-rentre la clé manuellement (oui, avec la main) pour qu'il comprenne... oh enfin, il a compris, le jeu apparaît bien... ouf, pas besoin de le... réinstaller. Tout a l'air normal. Je relance donc Anno 2070... j'espère ne pas avoir à le relancer 2070 fois !

    Le jeu se lance, tout a l'air normal mais... non, mais tu vas voir, c'est un vrai feuilleton... il redemande la putain de clé ! tiens mais putain, je te la re-rentre dans le fion et étouffe-toi avec, toi et ta putain de clé de connerie de con ! ça y est, je suis enfin au menu du jeu mais je suis soûlé, là.

    Alors, comment qu'on fait... y a des trucs partout... ah là, "campagne"... allez, charge la truffe, charge... Et finalement, en moins de temps qu'il ne faut pour le dire et encore moins pour le croire (même si c'est plus long) Anno 2070 reste un Anno : c'est très beau mais c'est très confus, très mal foutu, mal présenté (mais c'est beau, oui, oui) anti-ergonomique et vite super énervant.

    Alors, je me suis dit "mais c'est quoi ça, putain ?" et j'ai quitté illico presto. Ensuite, j'ai désinstallé... et d'ailleurs, on critique l'Epic Game Store (oui c'est buggué comme une grosse merde) Origin (ah la saloperie de la Worst Company !) GOG (oh les indés de mes deux, les vieux jeux tout pourris et qu'est-ce que c'est lent à charger ! mais au moins c'est sans DRM, merci quand même) et Steam (la boutique du gros porc, de Jabba le Hutt (avec le mode hors connexion qui ne marche que quand il est conecté) mais tout de même Uplay, qu'est-ce que c'est bien de la merde !

    Tiens, tu veux désinstaller dans Uplay, il te renvoit au prog de désinstall de Windaube ! bah dis donc, surtout ne te foule pas trop Ubichiottes ! et garde ton Anno avec sa clé bien profondément !
