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 very successful continuation of the cult series. With the returning to a more familiar setting, a creation of Ubisoft / Blue Byte discarded the strange decisions of past releases, while maintaining and multiplying the accumulated advantages. And, of course, great graphics and nice music will delight fans to meditate.

Anno 1800 is a visually stunning, incredibly compelling management-strategy game. One thing of particular note is just how great and addictive the gameplay loop is, hooking you in as you watch your cities develop and expand, made all the better as you unlock and build a wide variety of buildings. There are slight issues though, with an unintuitive UI and trade system, which due to the way resources are spread around the game can be irritating. Simply put, Anno 1800 is an incredibly addictive and engaging game, with a few flaws, but nothing that stops it from being a great entry in the series.

Anno 1800 is a series return to form that a poor tutorial can't hold back.

With five population levels, two maps and heaps of goods, the Endgame of Anno 1800 is much more difficult to coordinate than in past parts. But this is really to be understood as a compliment. No matter how many hours I sink into an endless game, there is still a set screw here or a chain of goods there that I would like to turn. Whether it's building more banana plantations, optimizing trade routes or outsourcing the entire heavy industry to another island, there's always something to do. The fact that I sat in front of the computer until half past three at night and watched the little men working speaks for itself. Herewith I can make a clear recommendation for Anno veterans and construction game beginners to buy. You will all have dozens of hours of entertainment with this wonderful piece of software made in Germany. Bravo, Blue Byte!

Implausible city-management and trading gameplay are married by an almost perfect soundtrack and artistic direction.

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 is a beautiful and comprehensive yet strangely cold Industrial Age city builder.

Ubisoft’s BlueByte learnt from their past mistakes, mixed the best parts of Anno 1404 and added several improvements from their successors, which culminated in one of the best — if not the best Anno ever.

Anno 1800 returns to the roots of the real-time colony-builder series and delivers intimidatingly complex gameplay that's as marvelous as it is beautiful.

This leaves us with Anno 1800, a refined city-building game with a delectably savory approach to logistics optimization, a lovely core aesthetic, and a time-devouring rhythm. For me, that's worth the cost of a historical anachronism or two.

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!
