Breaking News: Anno 2070 Trading Cards discovered in time capsule from the future!

S.A.A.T. scientists have been left scratching their heads after the unearthing of a mysterious object at a Global Trust mining site near Jorgensen Plateau.

The discovered metal capsule is emblazoned with an image of the Moon and the number “2205” - prompting speculation about its origin “from the future”, to quote Dr. Wallace Breen, administrator of the operation. Inside, a set of impressive paintings was found, depicting everyday life scenes and vehicles of the year 2070.

Message and purpose of this baffling find remain a mystery so far. We contacted S.A.A.T. director Dr. Salman Devi for comment and invite our readers to enjoy reproductions of these mysterious pictures we have prepared as Anno 2070 Trading Cards.

FIXING UPLAY:

UPVOTE THIS SO EVERYONE KNOWS

The reason Uplay crashes when you try to launch from Steam is because Uplay does not install properly when the install is queued/prompted by Steam itself.

INSTEAD, download and install the standalone Uplay launcher.

THEN, run the new standalone Uplay install and log in with your account.

NOW, you can launch the game from steam as usual as long as Uplay is running and you are logged in.

This game gets a lot of flak because of how bad the Uplay DRM was when the game was first released. As someone who has over 3000 hours in this game, it honestly doesn't warrant that flak. This game is *awesome*, no doubt about it. Can't recommend it enough.

I used to love this game. When I try to play now Uplay wants me to enter my key again. This is when Uplay helpfully informs me my key is already in use so I cannot play. I cannot play a game that I paid full price for that is sitting in my Uplay account. GO ♥♥♥♥ YOURSELF UPLAY. Seriously

This is not a bad game if you can manage to launch it.
When you install the game, do not launch it. If you do, uPlay will crash on start. Go to the uPlay site and create an account if you don't already have one. Add the game to your account from the uPlay web site. Download the uPlay launcher from the web site and install it on top of the one included in the Steam version. If you don't follow these steps, uPlay will repeatedly crash and you won't be able to play at all.
The single player missions are tough and actually require strategy and a grasp of the economy. You will run out of money and you will try many different strategies to scrape together the cash you need to continue. This is essentially a city builder with a great deal of micromanagement, not a war game.
As you progress, game elements and enhancements can be unlocked with points earned. An internal voting system exists for everyone playing through uPlay to elect factions which provide various buffs. Unfortunately, uPlay's internal achievements and points system don't allow for Steam cards or achievements.
If you can get past the extremely frustrating nuisance that is uPlay and manage the steep learning curve, you will enjoy the game.

This game is a generation old by now, but yet fantastic! If city building without too much min maxing is enjoyable to you, this is definately a must in your collection. I only regret not going Anno earlier in my gaming career.

From what I wager, the positive reviews are focusing on the game itself - and the negative reviews are focusing on the uPlay stuff (which, at the time of writing, presented no problems whatsoever to me). I feel the "mixed" review is not at all representative for the excellent game that is Anno 2070.
