I want to give a thumbs up, but i will explain with complete honesty why i did not: game is great, game is good, game is full of fun, play it. just one issue Uplay = U-DONT-play. it barely worke on my ♥♥♥♥ computer, then i got a great comp (FINALLY) and guess what? Uplay dosnt work. Honestly if this is the route that game comps want to go, ill just go back to buying disks if that could work as an alt to NOT have to face online interfaces. Just let me play my game. I dont care about online states, Im playing a strategy game that i want to play ON MY OWN. I honestly dont care about online points or which of my freinds built the Dam before I did, I jsut want to play the game I paid money for!

P.S. I got around it by downloading Far Cry 3 again since that is attached to a more up-to-date Uplay, and some have done it just by downloading Uplay else where, but my point still stands, as sometimes even when all the planets align and everything works perfectly, Uplay decides to f you over. Hopefully we all find a work around because the devs of the game dont deserve the flak on this great game brought about by their employers

Good game but I would not buy it again. Ubisoft is one of this pathetic companies that add crappy malware into steam. This time it's called "UPLAY". You know what big publishers? We don't need you crap. First of all we bought the game over steam. So adding ♥♥♥♥♥♥ malware for piracy concerns is a joke. People can probably pirate your game anyway. BUT people who bought it over steam get the grief of non-functional, non-working malware like UPLAY. Even your damn ubisoft website crashes the browser. RESULT: GAME IS NOT FUNCTIONAL for a lot of people. As PC-Geek I could get it working after 30 minutes of research, updating ♥♥♥♥♥♥ uplay etc. STEAM should not sell games with ♥♥♥♥♥♥ malware like uplay or origin or the like. Short said: DO NOT BUY, DO NOT SUPPORT MALWARE LIKE UPLAY.

Uplay ruined a game that I was really excited to get back into. Nearly 200 hours down the drain, as Uplay and all the various fixes will not work at all.

The game itself is fun and I will play it again but I can not recommend this game as long as UPlay is tied to it. A massive pain to install and set up (kept crashing) until UPlay magically worked and let me play the game.

Ubisoft this is the worst service you could attach to a game

DO NOT BUY. Ubisoft's Uplay is a broken piece of software. Since it implements an always online DRM, this often makes the game completely UNPLAYABLE (broken ubisoft servers, buggy uplay software crashing, etc.). Steam should never have allowed something like this to be even in the store.

The game itself isn't horrendous, but the Ubisoft U-play DRM is absolutely terrible. Not worth anywhere near $30, and the DLC is pricey for how little it actually adds- most of it's just re-skins.

Additionally, I'd have to say that the gameplay is very lacking. It has 2 factions, but they play very similarly, and no matter what campaign you do most of what you build is repetitive. All in all, a poorly-made game made nearly unplayable from DRM. 3/10, would not recommend.

This game is definitely fun, but the possibility of being randomly locked out of the game due to Ubisoft not having their ♥♥♥♥ together makes it impossible to recommend.

Avoid.. Avoid.. Avoid!!!!

I wish I could comment on the game, but the invasive uPlay prevents me from playing this game I spent hard-earned cash on. I bought this game, got a CD key and registering this CD key said "This key is registered with another user" .... and will not launch.

So, if you want to toss cash down a drain, buy this DRM nightmare where legitimate buyers get screwed. But I recommend you find a crack on torrents since their DRM sucks cash from actual buyers so they cannot play the game.

This might be a good game. I sure don't know - dealing with Uplay and Ubisoft's DRM is too painful for words.

How does the new Anno 2070 kicks without the good old middle ages? Hours I have built cities, dirty the environment or saved, ships torpedoed, bombed cities and settled under water. And almost every second of it was great!

The basic gameplay remains: We build trading posts on islands, then community centers, build houses around it (which we can now drag rows as streets with the mouse). Report the residents needs to - first the good old fish and spirits, later dispersal in the casino or concert hall, as well as luxury goods such as 3D projectors and household robot. In order to produce all that and build resources must be obtained - which we get only part of our island. So we colonize other, sail the goods and raw materials by ship zoom. So far, so Anno.

But the gameplay is now more sophisticated, more diverse. Mainly because it takes a playable faction: Namely, the eco-friendly Eden Initiative (short: Ecos), the nonprofit Global Trust (short: Tycoons) and the outstanding scientific SAAT group (abbreviated Techs). Because only the beginning of a continuous or multiplayer game you choose Ecos or tycoons party.
However, from the third of five population levels again you can unlock the technologies and buildings of the other two. That's about as, like playing the Americans in World War II - and must then suddenly build the tanks the Russians and Germans. This increases the complexity significantly. In the build menu henceforth stand ready to three tabs that allow you to switch between the building possibilities of the three fractions. Sounds complicated? Is it too - even after several missions and scenarios I accidentally built houses of the "wrong" group, because we have not switched to the desired grade.

When you start directly an endless game, you will be tangled up quickly, even (or especially!) As Anno veteran, mainly because of the three playable factions simultaneously. An artificial intelligence called E.V.E. (Similar to EVA from Command & Conquer, of course, purely coincidental and unintentional) takes you though a bit on the hand. But much better around 25 hours of gameplay comprehensive campaign is suitable for beginners, because the character has clear tutorial.

The three fractions are well integrated. We can build beautiful green eco-cities, with farms around it and send solar towers. And at the same time an island further pillaging - which then might look dirty-dark, but is so beautiful efficiently. At least as long as nothing goes wrong, because an oil slick from a flared rig does not stop at the picturesque Eco-coast.
But luckily there's so again blessed items that bring us very specific advantages or opportunities. The brightly burning oil platform can be deleted, for example, with a normal vessel into which we put an emergency kit

Oh yes, the graphics. I'd have to actually mention that also Anno 2070 just looks fantastic? Although not as cheerful colorful as its two predecessors, but again extremely detailed and alive. Nevertheless, in contrast to the pre-Annos we do not despair, even after dozens of hours of play on the buildings, the determination of the optics, is not always clear. In the big cities can be found as the major laboratories not good because they resemble the normal residential towers much.

The sci-fi city building of Anno 2070 is a fresh take on a familiar genre. Expect to get hooked, and stay hooked.

Score: 91 / 100
