Before I get into the utter disgrace to the gaming industry that is Ubisoft, I have to say that the game itself is absolutely fantastic. Brilliant and immersive in both its gameplay and UI, studying the most practical and most efficient ways of marriage between trade and development in a world of a realistic near-future setting, really a great addition to the Anno franchise.
However, despite the game's overwhelmingly positive qualities, DO NOT buy this game through steam. The publisher, Ubisoft, especially Uplay, ♥♥♥♥ed it in the ♥♥♥ with a foot-long cactus and completely ruined the experience from the start. This is a fair warning, to spare you the details of nightmarish hours of technical difficulties with it being a non-steam based game trying to use another game distributing software, save your time and money and hope for Ubisoft's demise as everything they touch descends into oblivion. I can only pray for Anno 2205's fate as any franchise sharing a destiny with Ubisoft is doomed to collapse.
Game - 10/10 "Great addition to the Anno franchise"
Ubisoft - 1/10 "Assassin's Creed was alright, Uplay can suck a fat one"
