    Anno 1800 is going back to the roots of the series but also manages to introduce exciting new features to the proven formula. The result is a building game that captivates for endless hours and challenges the player more and more with every new unlocked production cycle.

    Anno 1800 might be the best 4X game since Civ 6 and definitely has brought back the series' glory.

    Anno 1800 is a great opus in the series, and clearly follows up the very good Anno 1701 and Anno 1404 episodes. The only complaint we have is about the weird combat and the few remaining bugs.

    It's a really unique experience. A large part of the game is focused on exploration and it is a true ode to orientalism. A gaming pleasure combined with the visual and sound beauty. Probably the best Anno episode in the history of the series.

    Not just another City Builder. It's a great addition to the genre and the series. With new mechanics, great graphics design, and a fantastic soundtrack, there's not much to dislike about the game.

    A vibrant snapshot of the Victorian era that’s bustling with character, but doesn’t explore the intriguing, seismic politics of the period.

The fact you have to balance your workforce out to make sure all your carefully set up production chains don't stumble and fall, is a small but smart design decision. Expand

    ANNO 1800 is fantastic. It's the best ANNO in over 21 years.

    This ANNO 1800 combines all the strengths of the previous versions. We supply our population - which can be further developed over 7 population levels - partly through complex production chains, but which are self-explanatory and require a certain logistical skill with increasing playing time. Annoholics of the first hour as well as new discoverers will have their true joy. We explore the Old World and start expeditions and discover unexplored terrain ...

    It is also the most extensive anno in history, which even beats ANNO 2205 in it, but makes many things much better. The long-term motivation is almost limitless - the longer you play, the more complex and motivating the game becomes. After all, we are in the age of the industrial revolution. And once you have "discovered" electricity after a few hours of playing, you can ask yourself how you can integrate it.

    The attention to detail is boundless. You will have a lot of fun, just watch your companies, your workers in the fields and your population celebrate. Everything has been lovingly and variedly designed in beautiful graphics. It is simply beautiful to look at!

    Conclusion: no matter if beginner or professional - this ANNO 1800 will make you overjoyed. It is the most beautiful and biggest year in history. It doesn't quite reach the story of ANNO 1404, but the campaign is definitely worth it. In addition, a multiplayer mode for up to 4 players is finally integrated again. Friends: access, populate and be happy with ANNO 1800.

    Qu'on se le dise, Blue Byte réussit magnifiquement le retour aux sources d'Anno avec ce septième épisode. Beaucoup de choses rappellent 1404Qu'on se le dise, Blue Byte réussit magnifiquement le retour aux sources d'Anno avec ce septième épisode. Beaucoup de choses rappellent 1404 évidemment, mais il ajoute toujours une plus-value non négligeable en s'inspirant aussi des deux derniers épisodes, 2070 et 2205, et en l'adaptant à la révolution industrielle. Il a d'ailleurs été judicieux d'utiliser cette période de l'Histoire, tant celle-ci arrive à s'imbriquer avec le gameplay de la licence. Et évidemment le retour du mode bac à sable est plus qu'apprécié, surtout avec le soin qu'il lui a été apporté ici. Bien entendu, le jeu n'est pas parfait et il y a deux ou trois **** soucis par-ci, par-là, mais Anno 1800 est une franche réussite sur tous les points et pourra aisément se hisser au rang du meilleur jeu de la série et d'un tour de force graphique impressionnant.

For example I do enjoy the change of having to manage my workforce now instead of just building my production without worrying if I have enough workers. Slowly building up your small city into a huge empire just makes fun in this game. Beautiful looking with many details and also a great soundtrack. Besides many positive aspects the game lacks in the campaign, which is quite generic and they surely could have done better, also the battle system - now without landbattles as in Anno 1404 - might not be everyones taste. Taking those 2 main things in consideration with the technical issues some player seem to have it is a 8, if they fix the technical problems it could be an 8,5-9. In my opinion Anno 1800 takes over the title from Anno 1404 of beeing the best in the whole Anno Series. Edit: What might be worth noting for some ppl that there are no additional scenarios like in previous Anno parts Expand

    2 steps foreword from the last 2 annos...but one step back.

    Tá longe de ser um Anno 1404 da vida, o preço é injusto demais pra um jogo que tá começando a perder a essência.
