Pros:
+ It's the Catan we all know and love

Cons:
- The dice are not random. Save a game and then play a round. Load the same save again and then watch as the same exact numbers are rolled.
- Random crashes all the time.
- Seemingly abandoned by developer. No updates other then language localization in well over 1.5 years.
- Tutorial is basically nonexistant. They just throw you into a normal game.
- Unintuitive User Interface. No tooltips that popup to help you figure out what is what.
- Game bugs out constantly and when you roll the dice, it actually gives you resources for a completely different number.
- No online multiplayer, only hotseat.

I can keep going with the negatives however there is no point. I would simply avoid getting this game as the frustration of bugs/crashes is much higher then the fun value.

I play this because it's Catan. That aside, pretty much everything about this game is horrible.
It crashes to desktop fairly regularly, it's buggy as f*ck so even naming save files can be a challenge, there are typos in the text, some of the game rules seem to be wrong, and - worst of all - it is obscenely demanding on hardware; why does my computer practically meltdown simulating a boardgame?!

I can't recommend this, even if you like Catan. Whatever idiots developed this shouldn't be encouraged.

6/10

Pros:
-It plays as the game should i.e. It is Catan
-Basic and advanced modes
-Multiple maps for differet play styles
-AI's with different play strategies
-Pretty good graphics

Cons:
-Crashes atleast once per game, fortunatly always picks up where it crashed
-No bug fixes or updates anymore
-The zoom function when choosing where to build won't allow you to move around the screen to look around.
-AI's use robber to target winning player everytime, sorry but if they have no resources it doesn't help.

Overall:
You get what you want basically, Catan. Yes an issue can arise and its missing functions like a working multiplayer, but in the end you get to play it as the game is.
