"Dropping the familiar strategic economy simulation and city building gameplay into a new future setting really refreshes the franchise, but it's great to see that beneath its gorgeous new sci-fi sheen, Anno 2070 isn't simply a re-skinned version of its predecessors." - IGN.com
"Anno 2070 is a well-rounded single and multiplayer, online and offline package, with enough dynamic content to keep an online player occupied for a long time after the lifespan of one of the old Anno games would have expired." - NowGamer.com

Not quite as good as 1404 but still brilliantGeorgeStorm | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all GeorgeStorm's reviews »
Anno 2070 is the latest in the Anno series of games, it's an economic simulator/city building game which lets you build up cities across different islands, ferrying goods back and forth between them in order to try to meet the needs of your people. 2070 improves on the UI of 1404, streamlining the way production chains are built without over simplifying and losing some of the charm.
As the name suggests it's set in the future, which is a slight negative for me as I loved the ships of 1404, but it still looks gorgeous. It plays like the previous games, but with more factions meaning more buildings, more variety and plenty of replayability.
The multiplayer is great fun with friends, with more customisation than in the past allowing for full AI players as well as NPC type characters with limited roles.
Not quite as good as 1404 in my opinion but still a brilliant game well worth playing :)

Magnificent game with future setting and a great graphics. You would not be disappointed if your looking for a great city building game, Although it may not be as great as it predecessor anno 1404 and using uplay can be a hassle sometimes but its well worthed, the campaign are well written and the sci-fi city building of Anno 2070 is definitely a fresh take on its genre.

Endless mode and the events alone kept the game interesting for quite a while - I spent 100 hours just building cities. Who'd think I'll get this much fun out of 40 bucks? I sure as hell didn't. The graphics are nice and comfortable - even brownish tint so overused in modern games has a purpose here. I didn't expect that. The music is calm and relaxing, dynamic and changing (each AI opponent has his own theme) and I didn't get bored of it.
Well, there's UPlay. Some people joke that it's more like "UDon'tPlay" but I didn't really have problems with it - they seem to have Offline Mode and it works flawlessly. (Here's looking at you, Steam).
Buy the complete pack when it goes on sale if you like building cities - you just won't regret it.
Excellent Anno gamezipnox | Aug. 4, 2013 | See all zipnox's reviews »
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!

When it was announced that Anno would turn from the historic city building background it always provided to some future setting, I was very disappointed. However, I gave the game a chance and came out quite pleased. The rules are basically the same, and while some mechanics might feel odd throughout the whole game, it does hit some highs, mainly with the underwater section of the game, which is an innovation in itself. The graphics look OK, not very eye catching, but detailed, the interface is really clean and the colour palette is relaxing, with blue the predominant colour. However, the music does not stand out in any way. The storyline starts interestingly enough, but trails off eventually. Anno fans might not be entirely pleased with the new direction, but other players might be able to enjoy this finely crafted city builder more.
