|HonestGamers “The campaign, which has no time limits and almost no fail states, is just a primer. The core of Anno 2070 is the continuous scenario, which you can set up to be as competitive, goal-oriented, and punishing as you want, or as peaceful, open-ended, and forgiving as you want. This is the epitome of the sandbox game. Just start it up and build your little heart out. And the longer it goes, the longer you’ll want it to go.” Read Full Review||90/100|
|JPS Anno 2070 is the latest game in the award winning city building and real time strategy series that is for the first time ever set in the near future. Set in 2070 the Earth is a rather different place with world flooding, architectural breakthroughs and new challenges. Will the change in era and new gameplay mechanics make or break the series?

|Hooked Gamers The appeal of the Anno series has always revolved around discovering new lands, settling them and building up dominant civilizations. There’s not much left to discover on this tiny blue marble of ours and, for that reason, Anno games have always been firmly entrenched in the past. While not particularly realistic, the historic setting together with its somewhat fluffy style have given the franchise a charm that few strategy fans have been able to resist and the games have a huge following, particularly in Germany.

|Destructoid Story-hungry players might feel unfulfilled by the campaign, but Anno 2070’s mechanics provide enough food that their bellies will be bloated by the time they move on to another game. While it may bewilder players new to the genre with the sheer complexity of it all, Anno 2070 succeeds at giving the decade-old series a fantastic makeover. Fans of the franchise will feel right at home as the formula hasn’t changed all that much, but the myriad additions and improvements have been expertly crafted to fit right into the core gameplay. Moreover, it manages to do what A Nightmare on Elm Street may have done to you as a child: you won’t want to go to sleep and when you do, you’ll dream of even more efficient island layouts to try out the next day.

|GamerBolt Honestly, the worst part of this game is the DRM, lessons about which apparently weren’t learned from the dreadful patch-necessitating glitches in Dawn of Discovery/Anno 1404. Even if you choose not to use multiplayer, you still need a viable connection to the publisher’s servers – assuming they stay up – or you lose a whole host of in-game options, a trend which can’t be railed against enough. However, if you’ve got the stomach to swallow being punished for legitimately buying a game, Anno 2072 will be the one to beat next year in the strategy/empire building genre. You’ll spend hours learning and then playing it, but they’ll be nice hours, and you’ll be staring at really pretty buildings the whole time Read Full Review||90/100|
|Capsule Computers If you’re a fan of this style of game and have never played an Anno title before, this is a great place to start. 2070 is incredibly in depth, and although some may be put off by the steep learning curve, the package behind that initial barrier is well worth it. The futuristic set up is fresh in comparison to the historical settings seen in the previous Anno games and others like the Caesar series, although the underwater map isn’t as much of a selling point as it could have been.
