The Settlers: Rise Of An Empire Gold Edition reviews and comments

This is still going through today as a Mobile Game, but nothing more. Settler 6 Doesn't do anything really wrong. It's just kept very simple. Far too easy. I feel completely behaving as a Player there. Production Chains? No. The Campaign is Building game On Rails, it's all predetermined. There's nothing to Make Up, nothing to Optimize, nothing to Try, I actually lack everything that makes for Fun in this Kind of Game. Technically, the Game is fine. I had no Trouble starting it, even with dedicated Graphics and parallel activated Onboard card it ran smoothly Under Win10. It also looks quite pretty considering age. Well, as a "Build-up game light" it certainly has its Target Audience. I'm definitely not one of them, preferring Settlers 2-next Generation or various older Anno titles.

Important: If you want to have the game in German, you can look at the Community Hub under GUIDES, there is a Way to Patch real Estate: Some Childhood games still Plague Me up the house. Did the Game then searched like no other and made sorts of Nonsense (The opponent Playing through Cheats:D) And the Game still makes Super much Whimsy * Good Story (Although very briefly in my Opinion) * Good Graphics (for a slightly older Game) * Very Clear ( Not like in the Settlers 5) What has always Disturbed me about the Game: * The limitations in the Game (settler limitation/Soldier limitation/warehouse limit) In my Opinion, one could have done much better Rules. Even so, the Game is Grandios and one of the best Settlers parts (in my Opinion). It's just a shame that the Game is not offered in German. Can only recommend it!

I allow myself to do an evaluation tot because it is part of the many games that I have in CD version with the extension, but that I bought on steam settlers 6 known as empire building is a simplification of settlers 5 (the heritage of Kings that should HAVE ITS EXTENSIONS ON STEAM!) and at the same time the setting up of the atmosphere settlers 4/anno 1701 this gives a settlers 6 much simpler than its "cartoonified" predeceased but whose heros and history are really good, it is also the only settlers where we created our city to the AG e of Empire including the walls I am a very big fan of the series settlers and clearly from settlers 2 to settlers 6, the gameplay are globally different but the idea of creation is always the same, this Opus is therefore strongly advised and its multi by TUNNGLE sure operational (will be tested ulteriorly) settlers 7 is very well but far too simplified and radically dropped in freedom of creation, it's a pity, settlers 7 is also very good, but far to be in my esteem to the height of the elders, take the 6!! (and the 5 with its extensions! unfortunately not yet on steam)
This was the first game I played in the series, and I was rather disappointed. An unbelievably dumb story, infantile characters and a very repetitive gameplay. This was very week, go play something else instead.
