HORRIBLE: I love Catan. Probably one of my favorite board games, however, this adaptation of Catan is HORRIBLE! If you love Catan and want to play a digital copy, play it on Xbox Arcade. It alot easier to manuever throughout the game, has speed control, and allows for multiplayer across the internet. This piece of crap only allows multiplayer on the same computer. I never write reviews, so this just goes to show how much this game is worthless. If I could get a refund from any game, this would be it! As well, this game is buggy and crashes alot!

Catan is very fun, but this is a terrible release (As of May 12 2014). My PC blows the hardware requirements out of the water with a fresh image of windows 8.1 x64 and the game crashes randomly.

Whats worse, is starting a new game will let you play the longest, usually around 30 - 45 mins before a crash. Subsequent crashes (after reloading the game to your last save) are usually within 5 - 15 minutes. I have even tried to muddle through (since I am a serious Catan fan) and keep saving every few turns, but the game ALWAYS crashes and i'm just done.

I cant believe I had to pay money for this.

Running in any compatibility mode does not help either and even after several updates, it continues to happen. I do not recommend the Steam version of this game.

It says that it has "online scenarios" but this is a complete lie. When you select online scenarios it opens a website, in ♥♥♥♥ing German, of course, and if you translate it all that you get is stupid maps. The scum making this game are scamming everyone, there is NOT multiplayer, the AI cheats, the dice are not at all random... wish I could get my money back from these ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.

Constantly crashing. I bought this game when it first came out and decided to try again today hoping the bugs were fixed, but nope. Still crashes roughly every 20-30 minutes in game making the campaign nearly unplayable. If they can't fix the bugs, they could at least give some sort of auto-save so I'm not constantly losing progress in the game.

Catan is a fun board game. It's a fun Android/iOS game. It is a HORRIBLE PC game. It crashes pretty much all the time at random. A dice roll can crash the game. Hitting 8 victory points can crash the game. Trading resources can crash the game. Anything at all can crash the game!

The campaign is unplayable because just trying to play certain levels crashes the game.

I'm really serious about all these crashes. It's no joke. What is a joke is that I can run Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Metro Last Light, etc on max settings (or close enough), but I can't run a board game.

If the game was playable, it would probably be awesome. I have the Android game also that plays just fine. Playing as a video game eases all the resource management and whatnot from the board game. The game keeps track of everything for you.

The AI cheats hardcore also. I can the AI being intelligent and trying to stop the human player(s) from winning when victory is near, but you can be at 9/10 victory points with the AI at 3/10, and suddenly no one will ever roll numbers you can use again. The game replaces difficulty with implausible dice roll outcomes. The computer also constantly offers horrendous trades and won't accept fair ones. If you have one brick and no source of brick, they will routinely try to take your only brick in exchange for a sheep you already have 8 of. Robber rolls also seem to occur more frequently when the human player(s) are past the hand size limit. It isn't impossible to beat the AI. It's just frustrating to wait turn after turn after turn and see it rolls nothing but 3s and 5s because you don't have 3s or 5s.

If you like Catan, just get the mobile/tablet game. There's no online mutliplayer in any version of the game which is sad. There's a major trend in board games coming to PC/mobile that don't have mutliplayer. There is hot seat multiplayer which works fine. I play with a friend regularly on my Android device. It's good times.
