"Great game, wait to buy."
4 stars"

Settlers is a great game, ill admit that.

Currently, this game has a few bugs. Every 10 or so minutes it will freeze for 20 secondsunless updated to patch 1.3, which also has a few bugs of the auto-save feature deleting your gold and acheivements. (Used for unlocking new items)

Paying for a faulty game that has many annoying bugs is well.. annoying, If you really want this game keep updated on the Ubisoft patch info and wait for them to be fixed.

"Epic "fail" on the so-called DRM"
1 stars"

I love the Settlers series of games, with the possible exception of the ‘Amazons’ expansion that set you up to uselessly batter yourself against scripted hordes of overwhelming enemy warriors. Alas, as far as I am concerned, Ubisoft have shot themselves in the foot with their new ‘you have to be online in order to play this game, every time’ so-called copy protection. I want to be able to play single player games exactly when the internet is down, or if I'm on the road some place. My computer belongs to me and not to Ubisoft, and if I buy software I want to be able to use it at MY convenience, and not at theirs. There's no way I'd buy the game as is. Bad, bad move Ubisoft.

"Bring back the old Settlers!!!!"
1 stars"

I couldn't wait for this to come out but have I been disappointed big time. I have purchased all the Settlers and this is by far the worst. For starters when I first purchased the game the Ubisoft site was down and if their site isn't up and running you can not play the game. I had the game for almost 2 weeks before I could play it. It CAN ONLY be played on line while connected to the internet. Then the first half dozen or so senarios are all tutorials which go on for hours. When I finally got to one where I could play it myself I could never finish it with out being beaten. So the game got filed in the drawer and has been there ever since. Would not purchase again if they use the same system. Bring back the Kings!!!!
