Settlers 7 looks kind of simple at first. It’s an R.T.S. in the vein of Age of Empires or, surprisingly enough, Sins of a Solar Empire. For those unfamiliar with Sins, you take control of entire planets where you boost the economy, build warships and...

The Settlers series really is something different. Usually RTS games are characterised by a long slow base-building and army mustering session followed by an intense finger-twitching tank rush - resulting in the target base being razed to the...

Slow gameplay and a steep difficulty curve make Settlers 7 one for existing fans rather than new converts....

By Strategy Informer on 80

It's not often that playing a game results in a revelation. Usually the thought processes that occur while sat at a computer go little further than “there's no way that guy shot me!” or “why the hell can't I build any more tanks?” and let's not forget...

Lurking deep below the surface is a game unyielding in its ability to penalise the player for any minor discretion. The Settlers have certainly come of age, and despite various flaws, it's probably the most comprehensive release of the series so...

I remember many a sunrise after a long night of playing The Settlers. The game was in a league on its own when it came out back in 1992, mixing Real-Time Strategy with production chains that had never been done before. I have played every Settlers...

The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom is an ambitious game that's graphically very well executed. Much to our chagrin however, it just isn't the game we hoped it would be. The game's uneven presentation makes us alternate rollercoaster-like between...

Imagine settling down, looking forward to an evening of playing a civilization building game, not really concerned about the multiplayer, but maybe play a little sandbox game, or continuing the campaign to unlock new technologies, only to be told that...

International Review By Tweak.dk on 86

Alt i alt så er spillet meget godt hvis man synes at denne genre er underholdende. Spillet er underholdende idet det ikke går sindsygt hurtigt og derfor virker meget realistisk når de små mænd i spillet ikke får bygget en hel by på få minutter. Lyden...

Wer kennt das Spiel Die Siedler II nicht? Für mich persönlich war Die Siedler II eines der besten Computerspiele aus den 90er Jahren. Ich erinnere mich noch daran als wäre es gestern gewesen. Nie werde ich die Wegfahnen bei denen sich die Waren in...

International Review By PC-tidningen on 90

Men bakom kulisserna gömmer sig ett sinnrikt virrvarr av ­viktiga funktioner där alla är beroende av varandra. Glömmer man bort en liten detalj kan hela den spirande samhällsekonomin gå i stå. Risken är då stor att man blir utkonkurrerad av...

International Review By Komputer for Alle on 90

Alt i ens landsbyer afhænger af hinanden. Og glemmer man ét lille element, så kan hele den virtuelle samfundsøkonomi gå i stå, og man bliver overhalet af computermodstanderen, der bygger et konkurrerende samfund lige på den anden side af...

Tuntuu vaikealta uskoa, että siitäkin on jo 17 vuotta, kun pienet uudisasukkaat pistivät ensimmäistä kertaa tuotantoketjut ojennukseen. The Settlers oli peli, josta riittää mukavia muistoja.Lukuisia kopioita ja jatko-osakourallista myöhemmin käsissä...

International Review By I Am Gamer on 84

Das war mein erster Gedanke, als ich „Die Siedler 7“ in meinen Händen gehalten habe. Was haben mich die kleinen, herumwuselnden Männlein damals in ihren Bann gezogen. Stunde um Stunde, Tag um Tag, habe ich damals noch auf dem Amiga 1200 verbracht,...
