    Venice is virtually the same game as Dawn of Discovery, just with some additions. The new trading partner and espionage mechanics are fun, although not essential. The multiplayer co-op is awesome! Building an empire with a friend cooperatively is massive fun. And the 15 new scenarios provide about 40 hours of new gameplay.

    Venice expansion brings multiplayer and my favorite advsior NPC: Giacomo Garibaldi ! I've also enjoyed the custom stories and missions. Manoral Palaces are simply beautiful. Finally you can make Venetian trader ships and they're even better versions of your flagship. Amazing expansion.

  1. Venice should be the role model for every RTS genre add-on. This expansion for the Anno 1404 entry of the series boosts its original game with its new multiplayer side.
  2. Finally there’s a multi-player mode and it’s excellent, too. There are 15 different settings for single players and much more. Whether you like to play all alone or you prefer to play with or against others, you’ll enjoy Anno 1404: Venice.

    Combination of old features with new ideas makes Anno 1404 a noteworthy expansion.
