>>315370424 its way more casual. they removed much of the foundation of the classic gameplay and it feels like a board game now. there's no random maps, you don't compete with anyone else on the map, there's no struggle for resources or out witting your opponents to control the best islands.
that said the moon and arctic are pretty neat and the game is gorgeous but that's the worst part because you just wish the core game-play was there on top of the nice graphics.
>>315371278 pretty much, it just makes you angry and sad. it such a shame too because 2070 really, really grew on me and i came to love it as much as 1404. the graphics of 2205 are so nice when you play you think to yourself this would be so fucking cool with random maps especially the big dams in different places and how good the mountains look.
>>315372506 too much to fix im so fucking angry at this shit. if u need a production chain u just build building A then it says u got 5 of good x and the next building in the chain needs 5 of good x to produce good y and guess what the next one needs 5 of y to produce 5 z which ur ppl want.
>If you were gonna colonize the arctic why the fuck would you use tents
Does seem a little city, tents tend to be the dwelling of choice for arctic environments simply because they're light, it's expensive to cart heavy materials to the ends of the earth, and downright impossible if your only means of getting in/out is by air....but they're not exactly colonizing places in real life, and when they do they'll ship in proper buildings.
In Anno's case it's just dumb.
Like the intended playerbase.
Fuck this game and fuck anyone who bought it and hasn't refunded it.
>>315370424 Transportation is pretty much done automatically, multiplayer is gone. Basically your playing city skylines with a hint of anno in it. Its not all bad but its the first "bad" anno game sadly.
>>315375229 they are basically same games, only that 1404 is in year 1404 and witouth always-online, but i like 2070 more, has deep ocean dlc which adds a lot to the game, it's just fun, tried 2205 for 4 hours or so, this did nothing good to the genre
Is there truly no way to produce the upgrade materials yourself? I read that you keep getting them only via side missions, which would be beyond utterly fucking retarded. Those combat missions aren't even indie game tier, they're absolutely shit. I can't begin to conceive what made them think that that shit would be a good idea.
>>315379575 I know, thanks to CODEX I learned about Nemesis The Warlock and I plan on finding a way to play it in the near future when I've freed some space from my pc for the Commodore emulator and the game itself.
>>315379628 Thank goodness my favourite game starring best centurion and best sneaky boy never got a sequel, because something tells me it would've been a huge fucking garbage that would've stained the game's name forever. Instead it died silently but respectfully.
>>315380582 I'm not denying the story was literally a "noire", fanfiction-tier version of the real events behind Caesar's death, I'm just saying it was entertaining in terms of combat, environment, graphics and story too and maybe just maybe it could've had the premise for a sequel. It was flawed for sure, but it was enjoyable anyway and I kinda liked how normal legionares wore lorica musculata instead of the usual lorica hamata and segmentata seen everywhere. It wasn't immersive but I'm sure they would've given them the segmentata one instead, which is just as immmersion-breaking.
Also are there any Anno games set in ancient greece or rome? Never played any Anno game but if there's something like that I may actually start.
Jesus christ. What they needed to was add gameplay and complexity where it made sense, not remove a bunch of depth. The game being simpler is not suddenly gonna convince a huge mass of people to pick it up, but Ubi chasing those sales numbers, as always.
The problem is... I think that Related Design actually saw people criticism of "Anno 2070 is 1404 with a new skin!" which was a BS claim because Anno 2070 expanded so fucking much. And they tried to turn the whole gameplay upside down. It didn't work at all though.
I really blame shortcomings of 2205 on a very harsh critique of 2070 early on, that might've left the impression of "Change the game bse completely".
I'm really sad too because I was so hyped for 2205. I still might get the CE of it just for the soundtrack and artbook. Anno 2070 artbook is top tier
Yeah that's what I'm saying. On Metacritic and Steam, the game is SLAMMED in the reviews much to my anger. 2070 did everything so fucking right in being a near-future post-apocalyptic game with a sense of "We can fix it" to it. While online components are Senate, world event and world leader could be deemed as unnecessary, they were nice additions. Things felt good once you played a bit of it.
My only complaint was the ridiculously hard campaign that revealed a lot of backstory of Steinberg, Deli, Bartok, Rufus and Yana. And also all the cut NPC banter that showed that there was much more sinister things at hand happening at EDEN initiative.
>>315381746 i bought 2070 over the summer. i researched a lot of steam reviews and it seemed like the vast majority of them were about how fucking awful uplay was when it first came out and the game being 'too much online' which is fair, because sometimes when you're just trying to do some ark management it just randomly lags and when you first start the game sometimes it takes forever to get into the menu. other than that many of recent reviews (at the time) i read were really positive saying ubi kinda got their shit together with uplay and the game was nice and tons of fun.
I bought the Collector's Edition few weeks after launch and I know how much of a disaster it was. But no one is gonna skim 1000+ reviews to whisk what they complain about. They're gonna go by the numbers.
