The game itself is fun for a few hours and the game offers a new aspect into the Anno series and how it interacts with a futuristic sense. However in military aspecs you can not field land units and all you can do is field air and naval units.
I got the game and the deep sea dlc for £8 and i go by a pound an hour if it is worth it and it has been so for me. 28 hours by the time of this review.
However i want to point out after you see how the game operates, it becomes very boring and dull, AI on hard manages to take over half of the islands on a large map within 5 minutes to 10 minutes. AI is very ruthless and you will be eliminated within ten minutes. Factions are strange in terms, Tycoons are the best and easiest and the strongest, you will aways win with these lot. The tree huggers are useless and pitiful, they have weak ships and one good ship against Air units, while the Tycoons can bring battleships to the playing field. The tree huggers are useless because they are incredibly inefficient and require energy that costs incredible amounts in expenses per month. While Tycoons build a coal power station that significantly powers a settlement.
The Tree Huggers (Eden initiative etc) costs a whopping amount of expenses to supply the population, because most of their needs is fulfilled from growing rare fruits and vegetables for drinks, Tea, etc etc. Tycoons require only alcohol and fish to upgrade in the first tier and alcohol is easier to cultivate than Tea, tree hugger farms require 4x more fields than Tycoons too.
Then for the next tier you need plastics and vegtables to create conveniant food (Fast food), while the tree huggers require Fruits and another item i have forgot, which is a pain in the backside to grow.
Techies are fun to have because they allow you to research new blueprints and new items to be used, such as hydro electric dams, and refilling depleted deposits of minerals on islands for your industry.
Ocean DLC is alright but i was expecting to create underwater colonies, not supply bases which is boring as heck. Although unlimited minerals is a fun aspect, especially when a large island colony requires uranium to produce nuclear fuel to feed the energy grid.
I have to say i reccomend this game for it's price and that i got my moneys worth, but if you plan to play this game for a larger duration, you will get bored of the game. The game is a dissapointment to the series as you are limited by the amount units you can have by your population number size.
The game is very very very easy in comparison to the other Anno series games.
It is a brilliant game to play for about 25 hours, after that you are just dissapointed by the repetitive gameplay mechanics. But i reccomend this game, as i go by £1 an hour and if i fulfilled the price quota of £8 (Including DLC) then i do believe the game was worth it.
