Reviews for Anno 2070 (NA)

I love economic sims. I enjoy Tropico, the old Impressions games, Sim City and its derivatives, but the Anno games just never really did it for me. You spend more time driving around your scout ship or transports, and less time actually managing your city. There are some nice ideas in Anno 2070. You get to pick your allegiance to some degree, and earn rewards based on your style of play. But really, the game just doesn't hold my attention with the pointless fetch quests. Fetch Quests are bad enough in an RPG, why do you want to put them in my economic sim? That said, the gameplay itself is ok when you are actually managing your city. There's limited space for your buildings so you have to play it smart. But overall it just didn't grab me.
Great economic strategysaojoao | Oct. 25, 2013 | See all saojoao's reviews »
The Anno franchise took us into different places and periods, but it has always been one of the best and most interesting economic strategies. Anno 2070 takes us into the future, where we'll be building our empire and managing (sometimes even micro-managing) it. The economic model presented in this game is great, and it develops what we know from the previous Anno games. The game must be one of the best recently released economic empire-building games. And if you manage to get the full pack, with all the expansions and DLCs, don't hesitate and get it, as they're more than just cosmetic changes. They expand or improve the game, which is very good already.
