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.

I feel sad for people that actually gave money for this game. Yes, it's Catan, our beloved board game and this is the only thing making me sit through this torture. Or pure madness, you choose.

I've seen bad games, but this....

1. Medium difficulty? How about everyone picking up on you! - I've seen NPCs putting random roads just to block me off completely, without any use for them. I've seen them stealing resources only from me. I've seen them blocking only my resources. I've seen them trading only between themselves. I've seen them depleting resources I held when they had no access to them. Nothing can help you if you are ahead in points.

2. The dice - if you want a fair game, this is not one. Someone here mentioned that the dice are the same after you load a safe. I can confim that. They are also mysteriosly "kind" to your opponents and their resources, that you are not connected to. Hey, you hold hexes with 8/6, so let's roll only 2s and 3s for the next 20 turns!

3. The daily dose of crashes - I've reached a point where it started to crash every 15 minutes, so pray if you forgot to save. Then there was that time when it crashed completely with the "running" bug. The bugs are numerous: Resources dissapearing or not being "drawn" properly; trades that you approve but somehow don't get anything; map zoom that doesn't show you the active map placement roads; development card crashes... I bet I am forgetting something.

4. No online multiplayer... I have no comment on this one.

All in all I've spent a lot of time playing it, but would not recommend it unless you appreciate winning against almost impossible odds. I love Catan, but honestly, this game is teaching me patience on a whole new level.

The game cheats so much that it is really unplayable. The computer players are always drawing cards while the real player, myself, gets almost no cards. When a seven is rolled and the computer takes a card from me by dropping the robber on my tile the very next roll is ALWAYS whatever number the computer blocked (salt in the wound i guess). On two occasions the computer has traded in cards it did not have, such as when there were no wheat in play and the computer had not traded for wheat yet it suddenly had two for a city and the win. Without playing a knight card or any other card that would remove a card from my hand the computer player has three times taken a card from my hand. The most common numbers rolled on average are the central numbers, yet there have been entire games where a 5 6 or 8 have NEVER been rolled, simply becuase i am the only one on those spaces. the computer has, twice now, placed a settlement on a twelve and rolled a twelve 8 to nine times in that game, yet 5 was never rolled once.
All in all a waiste of money time and effort
