I've played all previous Anno games and I've loved them all. It is a great game to relax at due to its slow nature. You can even turn off military actions within your skirmish game so you can focus on building up your city and anything you want. You can take as many islands as you wish and build a city and production on every one of them. Eventually you can get to build underwater production which is an exciting addition to the game and a wonderful idea. Even after multiple hours of game time you can't actually finish building everything because there is simply so much to do and build. An other great improvement is the graphics that looks stunning and therefore screenshots and videos from it are beautiful.

Anno 2070 is a complex game it takes a RTS (real time strategy) to a new level. But if you love building cities, having limited resources, and limited land this game is for you. Took me more then a few restarts to get a feel for this game but its so beautiful when it all comes together. Its all about making do with what your granted and balancing it with the environment, and keeping your citizens happy with supply and demand so they can improve so you can improve. Also lets not forget about the trade because that island next you more then likely has something you want be it rice, sugar, oil you get the idea. This game is a must for any true die hard RTS gamer or even the casual RTS gamer but don't get your panties in a bunch cause you fail. You need patience and understanding and the willingness to scrap your game and start over to achieve greatness in this game.

I was able to play 190 hours of the game with no issues, but now I cant play since I lost my Uplay account, the game itself is brilliant but is ruined by Uplay's DRM. I cant create a new account either since Uplay requires a key to play this game, which is disabled when you link it to an account. The DRM would make perfect sense for a game distributed through DVDs and boxed copies but for steam it is nothing but a major inconvenience and possibly a sign of laziness on the side of ubisoft.

Anno 2070 is a city-building and economic simulation game, with real-time strategy elements. It is the 5th game of the Anno series. It was released on 17 November 2011, and was co-developed by the German studios Related Designs and Ubisoft Blue Byte, and published by Ubisoft. Anno 2070 requires Uplay to operate-- Ubisoft has fixed their Uplay servers to where you can now login with ease, but you must still creae an account , albeit it can be bought through Steam.

First off my CPU Specs that this game is played on-
Processor- AMD A6-3620 APU with Raedon(tm) HD Graphics 2.2GHz
RAM- 8Gb
64bit Operating System

If you like strategy or city building simulator games, this is the game for you.

What Anno2070 Does well-

---As a City Making Sim this game does excelent, you are presented with the problems of a futuristic society. You must maintain a postivie ecobalance, a way of showing the polution (or lack thereof) You are also presented with the problems of keeping a positive energy reading and economy. The people of your island will increase as more homes become available, more homes means more resources, food drink and other, needed to keep the people happy, and able to upgrade so they can give you more tax money.
---The graphics in this game are stunning for the time it was developed, I play on High graphics , but low looks good as well if your computer cannot support higher
---The DLC of this game, specifically Deap Sea, adds a whole new depth to the game, with new weapons, a new tier of "evolution" and an enchanced undersea experience, which is byfar my favorite in the game.

What Anno2070 does NOT do well-
---The combat in Anno2070 is extremely difficult for several reasons. One of them is that it is extremely hard to extinguish anyone, let alone an NPC, from the map, as they can rebuild faster then you can attack them.
---Uplay: I enjoy Ubisoft-don't get me wrong- but having to constantly launch my game from both Uplay AND Steam seems redundant to me.
---At $49.99 (this is at the time of review) for the game with all the DLC-as good as the game is- is a bit steep for a year old game.

All in all I would recommend that you buy this game, the Pros far outweigh the price.
My score of game- 88/100

I bought this game and another one called "From Dust" today under the foolish assumption that they would be delivered and enjoyed through Steam as I intended. SILLY ME!! Turns out Ubisoft has this terrible "UPlay" DRM garbage like Origin, Battlenet etc. that makes you sign into a bunch of extra stuff, extra processes running on your computer for no good reason, forced to be online to play, etc. etc.


UBISOFT, you will never get another red cent from me! SO GLAD this was all super dirt cheap sale stuff I bought.

Anno 2070 is a very good game! When compared to older Anno games they've really taken some bold moves and they do work well. However, I am NOT RECOMMENDING this very GOOD GAME. Related designs (the developer) has done nothing wrong, Ubisoft (the publisher) does a lot of things wrong. I will tell you a bit about the game, but also WARN you about Ubisoft and their pushy ways. I wish someone told me before I bought this game, because I wouldn't have bought it! Please read along!

A few years ago I was playing CivCity Rome. Off course I had heard of Anno, but untill then I had never played it. Then I tried Anno 1404 and I was instantly sold. Anno is a citybuilding game that is always set in a specific era. Instead of needing power and water, your citizens would like to have food and goods that you need to create for them. You build your city (or cities) on a map consisting of a bunch of islands that each have their own resources which you will need to create the goods you people want. When their wishes have been met, they grow a level. This causes the house to grow and support more people but it also generates more taxes for each citizen living there. Anno always goes very deep, you have to manage the fleet of ships carrying the goods around, time them, have the right amounts in stock etc, and sometimes when I'm about 24hrs into one sandbox game, it starts to feel like a lot of work! You must keep the production going, sell excess goods, don't go bankrupt, build that monument, manage trade routs,,,

Anno comes in many flavors, just pick your favorite age and go! The latest installments are the most consistently playing ones, and with this new Anno 2070 they really made the game a lot more accessible to new players and old players alike, when it comes to the amounts of resources in a map for instance. I have a few minor points of critisism about some of the made choices though. And for me, the futuristic theme is ok, but the style is a bit bland for my taste. For instance, in Anno 1404 the palet of colors was more vibrant on my led-tv for instance. I also like seeing dozens and dozens of wooden sail ships being processed at a big massive harbor, rectangular electric ships just aren't the same. When it comes to graphics in general, this Anno is really good looking with the later effects though. I still prefer 1404, but it's a matter of taste. The action (yes, there is also warfare, limited islands and resources mean war! sometimes) is still not really spectacular and really... I don't like it. I like the building and trading! I have not played this Anno a lot or a long time, but it plays familiar enough to judge that it is a good Anno. Related Design does not screw up their beloved Anno I think! Anno games are generally good, this one is no exception... however I personally still prefer Anno 1404, it also comes without Uplay, the reason I'm not recommending this game!

I would score the game 8/10 if it weren't for the game's publisher Ubisoft. I would really like to warn you about them! Really annoying buggers they are!

Usually here on Steam, when you buy a game it downloads and you can play it. No worries, no fuss. Sometimes there is some online DRM, annoying and pointless but ok... Sometimes it's an online game, understandable that they want you to create a seperate account with them.

But then comes along Ubisoft and their pushy Uplay "services". I know one thing, it's no DRM. When you buy a Ubisoft game here on Steam, as soon as you have paid for the game and you have downloaded it, it takes you away from Steam, pushes you to create an account at Uplay (which is Ubisoft's marketplace/Social Media), that is being published publicly.

So in other words: you're in Department store A, you buy product X and as you put it in a bag to take home with you a salesperson from Department store B comes along and forces you to create a public membership with their store, while you were in the first store to begin with!

Afterwards, you can look in your settings to get your profile to be blocked from the public again if you want to, but as far as I'm concerned the damage has already been done. Who do they think they are, Facebook?!?

When I accepted my fate and tried to apply for Uplay, it was impossible due to server problems! When I got tired of waiting to create my public humiliation, I went looking for fora. It seems ever since it's creation, Uplay has been plagued by downtime. When I waited these weeks in a row to create an acount and get confirmation I actually bought it, Uplay already existed over a year! And it also serves no further purpose. It does not autopatch the game, it just 'checks' if it's you and if you're allowed to play the game. Yes, what Steam already does. It annoys you with 'unlockable goodies' for games as you play (stuff that already was in the game and screenshots(!), but blocked because of idk, so you had something to unlock online), you can start finding your friends again, it needs to be constantly online while you play the game. Also it downloaded the game again as soon as I managed to create an account.

Look at it this way. Valve is singlehanded carrying the PC-gaming sector by itself. It saved PC-Gaming and has achieved Cult-status. I mean, come on. Well over 60 Million people choose to be here on Steam. Ubisoft is just pushing their own store upon unsuspecting people walking around in this store! And then publicly humiliating them with their social media crap. They are trying to ply away the customers and public from Steam. If you have read this review, and then still buy any Ubisoft game... you clearly do not share this view of Steam, and I wish you a good day. To those that agree with me: if you have a game in your steam library that requires this Uplay crap, please write a review about it!

When we look at EA, we can see that they have Origin as their store. When I buy an EA game here on Steam "(like Command and Conquer or the Sims), EA does not push me into an Origin account. We can all hate EA for a lot of reasons (for me it's Red Alert 3, C&C4 and that city game that came between simcity 4&5), but I give them credit for that! The games that do require Origin (Fifa, SW:TOR, Battlefield and Simcity) are not for sale here.

I can accept another marketplace that digitally delivers games and software. No problem, competition is very healthy! But I cannot understand why Valve allows these practices. I mean, go ahead and try this in real life. Try to lure people from a Department store into another and I bet security is kicking you out! It's just common decency! I am not going to buy another Ubisoft game untill they either close Uplay entirely or stop pushing it with their games! That's 100% certain. I would probably have bought something there eventually, but not after this, I'm done with Ubisoft.

Anno, to me, is a singleplayer game! I have played a very few games of Anno 1404 with a friend, but not a lot of people feel like going for a 24hr game in multiplayer. Still, with this whole Uplay non-sense it does not play offline! There is no reason to force something as intrusive as Uplay down our throat with a game like Anno. After that short period of being very angry with Uplay and Ubisoft I decided to delete the local content and delete Uplay. The whole attitude of Ubisoft with their Uplay causes me to score the game with 3/10.

Ubisoft, please change your ways! If you don't trust Valve and Steam in their sales, don't sell your games here! Stop pushing your complete store/social media like this!!! Related Designs, please ask Ubisoft to change their ways, or go find a new publisher, I am not buying the next Anno as long as Uplay is still on it. I'm also not playing Assassins Creed 3 or 4 or Far Cry 3!

I have created a group about Uplay, please join if you agree: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/boycot-ubi
