4.0 out of 5 stars Very Surprised - Great Game! December 10, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game on a whim without knowing much about it. I am glad I did. I never played the earlier versions of The Settlers, so I'm coming into this one with fresh eyes.

This game is more about city building than it is about combat. There are only a few units to recruit. You can recruit swordsmen and bowmen, with a few siege weapons. That's all that you can get for combat. That might sound really bad, but the strength of the game lies in managing your settlers and city. I don't really find combat all that fun, it's more of an afterthought than it is a major part of the game.

The only way you win in combat is by having a superior numbers of troops. However, there are a few things that come into play. The happier your citizens are, the more damage your troops do. If you're on your own land, as opposed to an enemy's land, you'll do more damage as well. It's not rocket science, but you do have to keep an eye on a few things. It's another reason why this game is more about managing your settlers, even their happiness affects combat.

How do you manage your settlers? By building bakeries, hunting huts, barracks and so forth. You can't directly control your settlers, they do their chores on their own. To keep them happy, you have to make sure they have enough beer in stock and medicine available, as well as other needs. The game does lack depth, other than keeping them happy, all you can really do is raise and lower taxes. I should mention, you can also trade with surrounding villages, but that's where most of the interaction with them ends. Other than doing a quest for a village, all that you can really do with other villages is trade with them(or destroy them if they are an enemy).

Settlers: Rise of an Empire has some really high quality graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game For Dummies, like Me! February 26, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Settlers VI: Rise of an Empire Gold Edition

What I'm not: I'm not a teenager who can neglect his homework, play for hours every day, and talk to his friends about how to kill the bad guy.
What I'm not: I'm not a war general who knows to put the archers on high ground and flank the cavalry with spearmen.
What I'm not: I'm not someone who works for the department of zoning and planning.
What I am: Just someone who likes to play a game and win more than lose.

What this game is not: This is not a fast action paced game where you tell your wife you're too busy upgrading units, don't answer the phone because you're bein attacked by aliens, or hold in that bladder tight because any minute now and you lose.
What this game is: It's a slow paced game. You can kick back, sip coffee, smoke a cig, and even walk away to attend to real life concerns and still come back with everything intact.

What this game is not: This is not a high dedication game. You don't have to dedicate eight hours a day, seven days a week to upgrade your cooking skill.
What this game is: A couple of hours of fun. The time stamp has given me an average of two hours of game play per completed campaign map.

What this game is not: This is not a game designed for the strategic expert or the officer of city commissions. You don't have to know anything about planning a city or war strategies to have fun and win the scenarios.
What this game is: A game for dummies. It literaly tells you, "Click on the flashing button. Now place the cursor over the blue signal on the screen. There! You just created a building, now watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid choice for an historic city building game December 22, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a solid choice if you enjoy city-builder games.

You are mostly gathering resources, growing your settlement, expanding your territory, and fulfilling various scenario tasks, all within a usually very creative map that includes valleys, river crossing, mountain passes, and other fun strategic stuff. Maybe half of the scenarios end with you destroying another faction, but this is definitely not a military-focused game.

The good:
-Very solid game engine: never a bug or crash after 5 months of playing on Windows Vista 64-bit with a GeForce 9800GTX and graphics settings maxed-out
-Immersive period graphics and another solid ambient period music score by Dynamedion (Best German Soundtrack 2007)
-Creative maps/scenarios that are generally not too difficult and typically take around 3 hours each
-Vegetarian rating allows you to replay old maps using a different strategy
-Active user community creating custom maps for you

-Somewhat restrictive camera angle
-Less complex than other similar games (Anno 1701), although what it lacks in complexity in the game engine, I'd say it makes up for in the variation and creativity of the maps/scenarios.

3.0 out of 5 stars A small disappointment January 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I was very excited about this next installment in the Settlers series. The last one being very replayable and quite imaginitive. I'm somewhat disappointed in this one. It seems they took a step back instead of forward. The missions are quite repetative, the characters one dimensional, the city building limited and boring and the story lines themselves are merely to get you from point point A to Point B. The graphics are, as always, quite good and the life movement entertaining but there's very little variation in any of the objectives so these, in the long run, lose their novelty. I guess it was too much to expect that they would keep going forward. This game should have been released before the last series. That would have made far more sense to me.
My over all impression...not a bad game but not as good as I would have liked or assumed. You'll probably not pick this one up again once you finish playing through it. Also please make sure you check your graphic capability before purchasing.
