Its not often that a game comes along and grabs you by the balls and keeps you entertained for more than 20 minutes but thats exactly what Anno 1404 does. Its quite simply a must have PC Strategy game which some amazing graphics and is so enjoyable you will get lost playing it, and thats a good thing.
The game puts you in charge of building a small colony and works it way up. Now the thing about this game that i loved that it was so easy to get started into, i started straight into the campaign and the game teaches yous lowly how everything works. The game features various characters that ask you do to certain tasks or quests that range from building, getting supplies or finding spies.
The building are wonderfully detailed and the sea just looks amazing. I remember a few days ago i was losing gold in the game and going into debt big time, but i realised that id have to build up some peasant houses and meet there needs and tax the ass out of them of course to this succesfully meant building a cider orchard and lots of Taverns. The game narrows down peasants needs to getting drunk and having a chuirch to go to which made me laugh. The game has sea-battles as you can build your own shipyard,trading routes.
This one of the best games ive ever played and id recommend it to anyone. Its a total joy to play and keeps busy all the way.
