Anno 1800 is the game no one had any right to expect, but desperately needed. Though not without a few lingering issues, the variable gameplay, quality campaign experience, and astounding graphics more than make up for them. What began as a joint passion project between Blue Byte and the Anno Union, using AAA resources to deliver a game catered to player feedback, ended up an example of strategy gaming at its best.
Anno 1800, the latest installment in the Anno series is not just another City Builder. It's a great addition to the genre and the series. With new mechanics, great graphics design, and a fantastic soundtrack, there's not much to dislike about the game. If you're a fan of city builders, you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of Anno 1800. Prepare to lose a lot of your spare time, you're going to sink a lot of time into this game!
Anno 1800 can become confusing and complicated over time, what with the in-depth nature of this civilization sandbox franchise. But those willing to step up to the challenge are rewarded with a gorgeous and comprehensive game, built on micro-management and period-set obstacles and factors that nudge you along in your mission to build the next great island metropolis. For what gaming experience it represents, the franchise looks and feels great.
