Finally an Anno in the past. To be honest, the parts of the future never interested me and in fact grew up with the actual part of Anno 1602 and I also loved the following parts. At that time, however, I lacked the hardware power to really deal with it for a long time. But now finally Anno 1800 is here and what should I say big: It's just fantastic! Ubisoft has added great news, such as the plan mode where we can place buildings even if we do not have the necessary resources. This at least once the site is reserved and we can definitely plan better. A clear praise that the connection between the old world and the new (two different maps) seamlessly merges and is not disturbed by annoying charging sequences. Also the revaluation of our population is now more realistic, because if we farmers to be upgraded to workers, the farmers are missing us accordingly in agriculture and we have to build new farmhouses. I could say so much good, but I have to get rid of a few negative things too. The war in Anno was never the big strength of the series. Now this is done exclusively over water. Since there are not very many ship classes, this unfortunately can be quite tiring and dragging on for a long time, as the AI has learned a lot too. In addition, the diplomacy for certain actions is clearly too expensive and sometimes incomprehensible. But those who see it over, will probably get one of the best strategy games currently!
