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 nails its gameplay loop with aplomb while adding plenty of new features to expand it further. From the grand aesthetic to the rich atmosphere and gameplay depth, Blue Byte's latest is a return to form for the franchise.

Anno 1800 is one of the most fun city-builders I’ve played in a long time. The construction of your city isn’t as complex as Cities: Skylines, but the complex supply and demand mechanics make Anno more action-packed than many combat oriented RTS games. You’ll constantly be juggling trade routes and worker types, and it all adds up to an incredibly rewarding experience.

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.

I spent all of my time playing Anno 1800 in a mild yet pervasive state of anxiety. As a city-building sim that emphasizes economic management, it is as robust and powerful as the steel factories it allows you to pollute the skies with. But for all the natural beauty of its island paradise and the architectural splendor of its churches, theatres, and piers, it's just a little too cold in its reliance on numbers and a little too impenetrable in its reluctance to show you its workings. I'm glad I visited, but I don't think I'd want to live there.

Despite an annoying story mode, Anno 1800 is the biggest and best entry in the series to date.
Mike WilliamsApr 17, 2019
Anno 1800 is a city-builder that caters to new players. It's gorgeous, has a campaign that's a huge tutorial, and players don't have to worry about sim aspects like traffic and power distribution. While there have been improvements to the Anno formula, some mechanics are simply not explained and the user interface is lacking for a game built so heavily around trade and economics. It's a good game for sure, but it needs some tweaks to make it fantastic.

Anno 1800 is a return to Blue Byte and Ubisoft's long-running city-building franchise. Sadly, a number of flaws prove to be detrimental to an enjoyable voyage.

Anno 1800 is a grind at times, but those moments of “eureka” when I’d figure out production rhythms and layouts that kept me operating in the green were delightful. It toes a difficult line of welcoming strategy gaming novices while also providing gameplay that experienced tacticians can maximize, with a well-crafted story-based campaign adding on to an already tried-and-true sandbox formula.
Alexander ThomasApr 27, 2019
Anno 1800 is a beautiful game. The water is gorgeous, the landscape is fresh and lush, and the animations are simple but delightful. The narrative of the campaign is unique and a story worth following, and the various tech-trees that unlock as your population grows are straightforward and logical. The use of a class system is what sets this apart from most city building games but the general lack of advanced mechanic tutorials leaves players at a disadvantage.
Josh TolentinoApr 23, 2019
This leaves us with Anno 1800, a refined city-building game with a delectably savory approach to logistics optimization, a lovely core aesthetic, and a time-devouring rhythm. For me, that's worth the cost of a historical anachronism or two.
Thomas MedinaMay 01, 2019
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.
Chris WrayJul 07, 2019
Anno 1800 is a visually stunning, incredibly compelling management-strategy game. One thing of particular note is just how great and addictive the gameplay loop is, hooking you in as you watch your cities develop and expand, made all the better as you unlock and build a wide variety of buildings. There are slight issues though, with an unintuitive UI and trade system, which due to the way resources are spread around the game can be irritating. Simply put, Anno 1800 is an incredibly addictive and engaging game, with a few flaws, but nothing that stops it from being a great entry in the series.
Sam ChandlerApr 17, 2019
Despite the constant stress of trying to balance my reach against the happiness and budget of my city, I found a beautiful experience in Anno 1800. It has a real soul to it, as it demands the player care about not only the raw efficiency of a city layout, but the health and wellbeing of a population that wants more out of life.
Dan HodgesApr 15, 2019
Anno 1800 is a rich city-builder with a staggering amount of depth. Although the tutorials could be clearer and more detailed, there's an impressive and addictive game here for those willing to give it the requisite time and patience.
Sam SpillerApr 17, 2019
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.
Bogdan Robert MateșApr 16, 2019
Increasingly complex yet approachable, Anno 1800 is an excellent entry in the long-running city building series that both challenges but also leaves space to admire one’s handiwork.
Robert ZakApr 15, 2019
A vibrant snapshot of the Victorian era that’s bustling with character, but doesn’t explore the intriguing, seismic politics of the period.
Lane MartinApr 29, 2019
Overall, I really do enjoy Anno 1800. It has the kind of depth that I really enjoy in a game like this and the visuals are just icing on an already velvety cake. It’s just a shame that it feels like the preferred way to learn the game is to have played it before.
Kosta AndreadisApr 15, 2019
From the animation to the visual effects, this is the best-looking Anno game to date. Something of a no-brainer when it comes to advances in technology. But with the expanded focus on trade, production, naval combat, and colonisation it’s also one of the most engaging entries to date – again, once understood. A city builder well worth visiting.
Alberto PastorApr 16, 2019
Crear, gestionar y expandir un gran imperio comercial a través de los mares es una experiencia divertida y emocionante como pocas. Anno 1800 sabe sorprender al aficionado creciendo sin cesar, ofreciendo más y más materias primas con las que jugar, obligándote a salir de tu entorno para explorar nuevas islas, ¡viajar a América!, y seguir creciendo. Y lo haces, durante horas, muchas horas, porque es un videojuego tremendamente divertido.
Alex CastilloApr 16, 2019
Anno 1800 funciona como un reloj. Blue Byte sigue la escalada de calidad a la que nos tiene acostumbrados y nos ofrece un punto de partida fantástico para que nuevos jugadores puedan conocer la fórmula de tan célebre franquicia. Pasar del futuro a un periodo histórico exacto permite poner el enfoque en aspectos de la época a nivel de jugabilidad.

Wer ein ebenso komplexes wie schönes und langfristig motivierendes Aufbauspiel sucht, wird auf Jahre nichts Besseres finden.
Marcel KleffmannApr 17, 2019
Anno 1800 ist ein fast perfektes Aufbau-Meisterstück. Die wunderschöne Kulisse mit ihren zahllosen Bewohnern, animierten Produktionsabläufen und tollen Aussichten, der schnell an Komplexität zulegende Siedlungsbau in zwei Regionen sowie die frischen Impulse durch Schönbau-Belohnungen, Tourismus, Zoo und Museum sorgen für viel Abwechslung.

Anno 1800 revient aux fondamentaux qui ont fait le succès de la licence, tout en maintenant les améliorations réalisées au fil des épisodes. Le grand retour des modes multijoueur et Bac à sable, qui ont tant manqué aux connaisseurs, couplé à une ergonomie et une accessibilité peu répandue dans la catégorie des jeux de Stratégie en Temps Réel, font de cet opus une réussite.
Maxime ChaoApr 16, 2019
Le jeu innove donc par petites touches, sans jamais bouleverser son concept de base, diablement efficace. D'ailleurs, on retrouve quelques défauts typiques de la série, comme des combats navals guère passionnants. Les combats terrestres sont quant à eux carrément passés à la trappe car, de leur propre aveu, les développeurs n'ont pas réussi à obtenir quelque chose de satisfaisant. On pourra aussi regretter le peu de leviers que possède le joueur sur l'aspect monétaire.
Camille AllardApr 18, 2019
Anno 1800 est sans conteste l'un des meilleurs épisodes de la saga si ce n'est le meilleur ne serait-ce que par son cadre historique passionnant. L'exploration qui est au coeur de l'expérience est grisante de bout en bout et sa vision orientaliste est un vrai voyage pour l'esprit. Pour appuyer son propos et ses mécaniques de qualité, le jeu est en plus un petit bijou pour les yeux et les oreilles, avec une atmosphère visuelle et sonore qui donnent clairement envie de partir à l'aventure.

Un simulatore astratto, ma rigoroso, della produzione industriale, con annesso un esercizio urbanistico esteticamente delizioso. Si tratta di un gioco storico per modo di dire, e tutte le componenti non economiche sono trattate piuttosto superficialmente: il quadro complessivo, però, è proprio quello che si aspettavano i fan della serie, ed è già molto.
Daniele SpeltaApr 15, 2019
Il lungo percorso attraversato da Anno 1800 viene reso meno tumultuoso tramite l’implementazione di un’interfaccia di gioco semplicemente magistrale, dove ogni cosa è al punto giusto senza alcuna inutile navigazione e spreco di click. Qualcosa in più poteva essere fatto sul versante della scrittura per quel che riguarda la campagna, che a conti fatti si è rivelata solo un ricco ed esaustivo tutorial, in ogni caso il giusto antipasto per una modalità sandbox potenzialmente infinita.
Simone TagliaferriApr 16, 2019
Anno 1800 è il miglior capitolo della serie da Anno 1404. Già questo dovrebbe farvi capire che stiamo parlando di un titolo consigliatissimo agli appassionati del genere. Gli unici difetti riguardano alcuni elementi accessori della campagna single player e del gameplay, che finiscono per pesare sull'esperienza di gioco più che arricchirla. Un plauso merita invece l'interfaccia, in particolare la modalità pianificazione, che è leggibilissima, strutturata in modo intelligente e innovativa. Insomma, questa volta Blue Byte ha fatto davvero centro.
Павел ШаповалApr 20, 2019
В Anno 1800 есть недостатки — это и деревянный ИИ, и скромное количество режимов, и странное желание авторов скрыть от игрока побольше информации. Но ее все равно можно поставить на один уровень с потрясающей Cities: Skylines. Они обе крутые, но крутые по-своему.
Furkan SakoğluApr 15, 2019
Uzun lafın kısası Anno 1800 hem görsel hem de mekaniksel olarak başarılı bir oyun olmuş. Şehir yönetiminin yanında, diplomasi ve hafif savaş mekanikleri ile türü seven oyuncuların beklentilerini fazlasıyla karşılayacaktır. Hali hazırda bir Anno takipçisiyseniz yeni oyunu kesinlikle tavsiye edebilirim. Öte yandan Cities: Skylines gibi şehir yönetimi ve tycoon türüne de aşinaysanız, Anno 1800 bu taraftaki açlığınızı da dindirebilecek bir oyun olmuş.

Met Anno 1800 kun je echt terug naar het verleden en een heleboel opties verkennen. Dit is echt een spel dat je met gemak wekenlang elke avond kunt spelen. De sandbox-mode is ĂŠĂŠn grote speeltuin waarbij jij je duidelijk niet hoeft te vervelen. Geen enkel spel zal hetzelfde aanvoelen. Deze diepgaande citybuilder zorgt ervoor dat je blijft spelen. Terwijl je ziet dat je bevolking blijft groeien, groeien ook jou eisen wat nu een mooie stad is.
ElMundoApr 15, 2019
Bezdyskusyjny jest fakt, że powrót do lubianych przez fanów serii realiów z przeszłości okazał się bardzo dobrą decyzją, bowiem tytuł stworzony przez Blue Byte to gra na długie miesiące przyjemnej i wciągającej rozgrywki. Choć to dopiero kwiecień, nie waham się zaryzykować stwierdzenia, że mamy do czynienia z jedną z najlepszych strategii 2019 roku. Tak uroczej, a jednocześnie mocno absorbującej produkcji dawno już nie było.

Als je van dit genre houdt, dan ben je de komende weken niet meer buiten te vinden. Elke speelsessie loopt zo uren door en voor je het weet is het veel later dan je dacht. Dat is de kracht van Anno 1800. De game houd je bezig zonder te vervelen, speelt soepel en is een aanwinst voor het genre. Tel één, acht, nul en nul bij elkaar op, en dan komen we toch tot een negen voor deze game.

در نهایت Anno 1800 با بازگشت به ریشه‌های خود و گسترش فرمولی که نسخه‌های قبلی را به موفقیت رساند، توانسته دوباره نام خود را میان بزرگان این سبک ثبت کند. عمق بالا و پیچیدگی مناسب و در عین حال قابل دسترسی برای تازه واردان، همگی باعث می‌شوند تا بازی را نه تنها بتوان در میان بهترین نسخه‌های سری قرار داد، بلکه بتوان بر سر بهترین بودنش هم بحث کرد.

Anno 1800 je štýlová budovateľská a námorná stratégia, ktorá má fanúšikom série stále čo ponúknuť. Je to viac ako len piplanie sa s domčekmi, koordinácia výrobných procesov a plavba po mori. Hra obsahuje slušne implementovaný, i keď nie výnimočný príbeh, úlohy a zaujímavé doplnky, ako je manažment expedícií a korigovanie novinových článkov. Pohodový zážitok môže narušiť defektný multiplayer a nováčikovia sa zrejme ťažšie dostanú do hry kvôli nedostatočnej výuke. Inak je ale táto výprava do minulosti veľmi pôsobivá a zábavná.
