Anno 2070 is a hybrid resource management, city building sim and RTS by Ubisoft. Using futuristic technology, you must build a city to complete various goals while balancing the favor of three factions.

The main campaign for Anno 2070 revolves around a rogue A.I. and the steps that you must take to protect your people while solving the puzzle of how to defeat it. The story is told through in game events as you complete quests, and through pre and post mission cutscenes. While story can be somewhat secondary in these types of games, I found it rather compelling and was definitely interested in what would happen next.

For the campaign mode, you will be designing your city so that you can complete certain goals given to you by one of three factions, which are representative of business, technology and environment. Towards later missions you will be balancing the needs of multiple factions, whose unique buildings or abilities you will need to complete your quests. Since your city is persistent through multiple levels, this can create some issues while you are planning. You may spend one whole mission optimizing your city for the tech faction, only to find out later that you will need high level buildings from the business faction to continue. Your cities are mostly built on islands, and square footage is at a premium, so this can be problematic. Luckily for the most part there is not much of a penalty for having to tear down a building to place something new in its place, but still you can find yourself having spent hours designing a city perfectly just to find out later you have to tear it down.

Game balance is done very well. You will need to provide your citizens with certain goods, depending on what faction they are from, and most of these goods can be manufactured in your buildings. You will need to balance your cash, power supply and ecobalance to complete each mission, and luckily there are generally ways to increase each if you are patient.

Graphics are top notch, as our sound effects and voice acting. A lot of effort was put into the creation of this game, and it shows.

After completing the main storyline, there is still plenty to accomplish. There are council votes which you can participate in, and will give you bonuses to certain factions. There are many scenarios to play through. The main story can take you upwards of 20 hours or more to complete, and if you still want more to do, more is available.

Overall, I would completely recommend Anno 2070. It has that one more turn mentality that can keep you hooked for hours at a time. There is so much to do even after the main campaign that you will definitely get your money's worth. Anno 2070 is highly polished, well balanced, and very, very entertaining.

Score: A-

The climate has changed, sea levels have risen… What a great time for a strategy game! Anno 2070 is a futuristic real-time strategy game focused on city management and colonization. The game provides a good campaign that deals with the kind-of-steep learning curve. Harvest resources, explore new land and waters, engage in diplomacy and much more.

The gameplay is very smooth and well made, the graphics and sound quality is excellent. There are global community votes that actually effect how the game is played, I found this to be a nice little feature to include. Developing your cities takes time, this does get tedious during certain moments of the game, but usually you can find something to do while you wait for whatever it is you're doing.

Anno 2070 is a great strategy game and has me going for several hours at a time, even though the game asks me to take a break every hour I find it hard to put down!

So much to do with hours of fun. Many empires to build and enemies to defeat. Oh did I mention underwater Bases too? Game is detailed on all levels from economy, trading, diplomacy, etc. Combat though can be a bit weak, but makes up for it in natural disasters, like oil spills (if you have oil rigs or someone else does) Tsunamis’ if you have the proper DLC, and various infections that can poison your empires food supply.

Having to counter those disasters can take a while if you’re not prepared for it.
Still getting into the game myself, and must say the game is a great buy. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you have friends to play with.

On that note, This review is based solely off of the game itself. No DRM negative review because DRM and UPlay sucks. I could care less, as I already had a Uplay account and the game was easily linked with no problems.

I was recommended this game by a friend of mine recently as I've been playing a lot of strategy/citybuilders. So far, I'm enjoying the scenario mode, I haven't played endless, MP or the individual missions but the only glaring issue I've found so far is lack of a real tutorial. The game prefers to throw information at you on an "as and when" basis, whereas I'm the kind of person who'd like a thorough run through of all the basics before I dive in. Still, that's nothing that would put me off as I'm a fairly fast learner, but I'm aware that there are those out there who might be put off by the level of complexity with just an in-game "manual" to refer to.

The gameplay is what you'd expect from games of this type, functional point and click with plenty of micromanagement. I loved how simple it is to manage your resources and trade networks and to quickly sell off any of your stockpiled surplus to make a few quick dollars, I've never been very good at budgeting so that was quite a help when my depots started to fill up.

Graphically, it's absolutely gorgeous to look at with some absolutey beautiful levels of detail (the fat guys working the sugar beet production plantation made me giggle a bit) on structures, vehicles, NPCs and landscape, the underwater areas have fish, rays, jellyfish and other marine creatures which makes exploration something very enjoyable.

It sounds lovely too, a nice, non-intrusive score which nevertheless conveys the atmosphere of the game very well and the change of track from over- to underwater was a nice little touch. The NPCS voice actors are well chosen for their roles with my only criticism there being of Dr. Salman Devi.. where are you from, Davi?!

I'd definitely give this a thumbs up to anyone familiar with strategy, citybuilding and suchlike. There are a wide range of expansions to keep you busy once you've cracked the game too which should push its longevity, definitely worth the money!

Uplay DRM can be a hassle, but once you get past that and the learning curve it results in a great game that is loads of fun.

Edit - Now I know this isn't ideal at all, but if you have trouble starting up after update like me, you have to let uplay do its thing, then exit out and restart anno 2070 from the steam menu. Pressing play on Uplay after update doesn't seem to work for me, I can not comment on others.

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:
