Often in strategy titles there is the want for more. More building types, more resource types, more of everything. Anno 1800 has all of that depth from the very beginning with so many types of buildings there is an amazing balancing act to make. With chains of production to make, such as potato farms which supply schnapps brewers, there is plenty of thinking to be done. This is a game many would refer to as a time sink, yet it is one I'd happily pour hours into. The futuristic titles had lost their way somewhat, but Anno 1800 firmly steers the series back on track!

The foundations of Anno 1800 are solid, and the game offers a diversified experience. Going back to the roots was a crucial decision, and I can say, with all certainty: this is one of the best strategy games of 2019. It’s been a long while since we had such a lovely and absorbing game to play.

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

Anno 1800 brings its hybrid of city-building, trade, and diplomacy to the Industrial Revolution with a show of technical brilliance, but it's hindered by a cumbersome interface and other quality-of-life issues.

Anno 1800, the latest installment in the Anno series is 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. If you're a fan of city builders, you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of Anno 1800. Prepare to lose a lot of your spare time, you're going to sink a lot of time into this game!

Increasingly complex yet approachable, Anno 1800 is an excellent entry in the long-running city building series that both challenges but also leaves space to admire one's handiwork.

Anno 1800 is a rich city-builder with a staggering amount of depth. Although the tutorials could be clearer and more detailed, there's an impressive and addictive game here for those willing to give it the requisite time and patience.

Anno 1800 nails its gameplay loop with aplomb while adding plenty of new features to expand it further. From the grand aesthetic to the rich atmosphere and gameplay depth, Blue Byte's latest is a return to form for the franchise.

If you’re looking for a robust city builder with a ridiculously polished set of tools and tech trees for you to live out your wildest industrial era dreams, look no further. Despite some tiny gripes, I really couldn’t be happier with how much Anno 1800 honors the series legacy, and further refines it.

Anno games, after going through a period of change and experimentation, has once again moved closer to its roots, and has achieved good results as well. Blue Byte studio has released a better and more interesting game that includes all the positive changes of the previous titles. Though far from an ideal game, it has managed to be a near-perfect title that can entertain us for hours. This title can, without a doubt, be called one of the most successful Blue Byte games

Anno 1800 is a successful city-building strategy game, where you won't notice how time flies. Its biggest problem is the high price though.

I can't recommend Anno 1800 enough. I was legitimately worried that Ubisoft might try to bring the entire franchise into the present, but I'm happy to say that my fears were unfounded. The game is a love letter to the old city-building games, while still managing to innovate and surprise even veteran players.

Anno 1800 manages to find its place back between the heavyweights of the genre by getting back to its roots and expanding on the succesful formula that made the previous games great. The gameplay is deep, complex, and at the same time simple enough for the newcomers to jump in, and its definitely one of the best entries in the Anno series, if not the best.

Anno 1800 is the best city building simulation of this year so far and you'll find yourself spending a lot of time playing it because of satisfying deep gameplay. The game has almost no cons and compare to its similar games, Anno 1800 surely is the best installment.
