I wasted a lot of money on this terrible game. It crashed every time I tried to run it, and by the time I could actually run it, I had played it too long to refund.

You WILL enjoy playing this game, and you WILL have problems with your account and ubisoft.

DO NOT expect to get too much play time as it WILL stop working at some point.

A quick note to all people having trouble with Uplay: seriously guys, nothing can't be solved with google. Just download and install the newest version of Uplay before you install the game and Anno would run normally. Seems like Steam was too lazy to incorporate a newer version of Uplay into the game, hence all the hassles with it.
Now that is out of the way, let's get to the game itself: I daresay this game is comparable to a gem. No, not the beautiful, gorgeous kind of gem, think of it more like a rough gem, that through progession, become more than rough. First 5 mins into Anno and I was INSTANTLY overwhelmed by just how much I have to learn. Firstly, you need building materials to build your city (duh!), but there's already a catch: all buildings require maintenance, and once I've set up all neccessary production building, my income was negative. To counter that, I need more people to settle in so I can tax them, and then I have to set up even more production buildings to support them. And what happen to a city with lots of people and industry? Yeap, pollution. Decreased happiness, Increased disaster rate, there's even a faction that would declare war upon anyone who destroy the ecobalance too much. Of course the game offer a solution to it: there are buildings that improve ecobalance, at the cost of hurting your economy (they require a fair amount of maintenance too).Then, as you progess, your people would require more than just basic food. They need activity, they need social services (Police, Fire Station, Hospital), they need more variety in food supply... which put EVEN MORE pressure on production chain. The game simply make it impossible to advance without expand, which then require a trade route, since, you know, goods ain't delivered themselves. Feeling dizzy yet? Good, because that's how the game keep you busy: and endless cycle of building, expanding, managing trades, fixing ecobalance, optimizing things... And did I mention there's a pirate faction and a private contractor, both of which would make your job even harder.
To sum it up,
Things I like:
- Pretty graphics, you can feel the city grows as you progess, the people and traffic animation is also nice.
- Solid gameplay, economy and production is consistent and makes sense to me.
- Provide lots of depth, Anno can pretty much keep you busy for up to 20 hours without boredom.
Things I don't like:
- Tutorial is somewhat lacking, although there's an in-game AI assitant called "EVE", she's really not that useful. My first city was a terrible mess just so I can learn what goes where. especially the trade management. If you can get your head around it in 10 mins, I envy you :(
- Require alot of trial-and-error, you can literally have to spend up to 5 hours just to learn the basic. Hell, even youtube doesn't have a proper tutorial video.
- Feels more like a economy management game and a city building game. But it's just my opinion really.
Things I feel neutral:
- Combat isn't polished, but hey, it's a city builder, of course the devs don't pay that much attention to combat system.
- Late-game content: there's not much challenge to tackle once you advance to high tech tree. Your fleet can triple or even quadruple the size of your rival's fleets, you have access to nuclear missile and bomber that can obliterate anything, and your economy can support a perfect eco balance everywhere unless you mess up really, really bad.
All in all, I give Anno a solid 9,5/10, and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good city-building game.

Aside from the utter nonsense that is uplay, I just didn't find this enjoyable. It looks pretty, but lacks that magic "I'll finish now, right after I do X" like in Civ, Sim City, or Cities.

It all feels a bit mediocre, a bit weak. Add to that the horrors of UPlay and it's not a good recommendation.

The Anno series games are deep and satisfying if you enjoy open world city/economic/civilization simulators. Anno 2070 is no exception. I would give this game a 9 if I were able to play it with any consistency. This really would be an excellent game, but technical issues render it a complete waste of $50. I will not buy another Ubi game, which makes me sad because they have several good titles.

This is a serie that has always managed to improve (I haven't played the last Anno though, so that might have changed) and propose a more refined gameplay in each interaction.

This one offers two main factions and a "support" one that offer different enough gameplay to keep you entertained for hundred of hours.

My only complain is that I had to install an Android app on my phone to remember what's the best production chain for each item. It's a shame that this kind of information is not present in the ingame help.

Although Ubisoft and its stupid DRM tried hard to ruin the game experience (like Ark buffs not working offline. LOL), this is a great "isles management" game. Must have for every town builder fan.

The game is really really fun. I absolutely love it. But... you guessed it... Uplay. I'm one of the lucky few that's actually able to play the game. Still, I encounter "your account doesn't have this game" error, every one of third time I launch the game. It's total chance that I'm still able to play tbh. Even EA does a better job when it comes to their Steam clone. Any game that involves Uplay is a must avoid.

Besides that, even though I love the enhanced gameplay aspects, the 1404 aspects fitted the Anno concept better. If you're a newcomer to the series, I recommend Dawn of Discovery / Anno 1404 (US/EU name difference, same game). If you played Anno before, you'll also love this one. (If you decide to take up the gamble, and beat the odds of "serial is invalid")

Like it's predecessor ANNO 1404 (+ Venice) it's a great build up game... The story its great, gameplay is fun and immersive and the overall aspect is great...

Trading, combat, planning, all of that gives a great experience...

A complex citybuilder/strategy/resourceplanning game. You can fight other people, but the main part of the game is about planning your cities and resources, couse without population or resources you wont get very far. Its suprisingly relaxing exept if everything is going down the drain. This is a slow paced game, you dont just rush through it.

If you like planning your citybuilding and resource chains...... your going to love this one!.

If you however like fastpaced games with require little planning or thought.... avoid this game at all cost!.

I happen to like planning so im one of the people who loves it. And i would recommend it strongly to anyone who is like me.

Edit: Also playing this game with the steam controller works nicely.

While there may be much room for improvement in the game (in terms of replayability and content), its quite intense in multiplayer and can provide huge amounts of hours of fun. My favorite is Domination mode, where you have to outplay opponents in scenarios without having to be online in the same time as your opponents. This is where I spent the majority of my game-time, as it is a level playing field and a great way to get friends to team up against others and put together a strategy to win (as its not just the scenarios itself you have to play well, but also the Domination Map that connects the scenarios.

Sadly just not a particularly interesting or engaging game. Real shame as I loved the older games in the Anno series. I think the setting makes supply trains too simplistic and the whole thing feels procedural and uninspiring. 4/10
