And I'm having an absolute blast! I don't understand why it got such negative reviews. I'm having so much fun optimizing my supply chains, conquering the stock market, and modifying the game mechanics in the nexus, more than I ever had in Anno 1800. I know one common complaint was the lack of randomized world generation, but there's still a whole lot more variety than ending up at Crown Falls every single playthrough. I believe there are quite a few great features about this game's endgame/metagame that I wish would have been explored in more depth in Anno 1800.
外围体育投注So after thoroughly enjoying 1800 with all the DLCs and completing almost everything there (except the 50k investors achievement) I thought I'll go back to some prequels.
I've never given 2205 proper love, was kindda disappointed when it came out, I didn't even tried all the DLCs properly. So I gave it a spin. And oh boy did I have a time of my life.
外围体育投注I'm not sure what bothered me about it when it came out, it's been 4 years, but I vaguely remember I didn't like the whole goods distribution system. How instant it all was. It all felt so...digital, as compared to the wonderfully analogue feeling of the older Annos.
But now I actually loved it. It was fast and snappy and great. When I wanted to buy something from a trader I didn't have to sail my ship over there for 10 minutes, manually load the goods and then slowly crawl back. And I could see every single change in the goods consumption system in real time.
I'm not loving everything about 2205, for example the Tundra DLC is a fun new region but the new production modules are mostly pointless (if they raised production by a small margin (10 or 20 percent) without increasing the labour and energy need as well, and also costing less to produce, they'd be great.) And I'm not sure about the Frontiers DLCs, I hate the invasions, I actually preferred the optional combat in the OG, but the new areas and new sector projects are fun. Orbit is great and absolute must have if you're going for the harder achievements.
I'm not saying Anno 2205 is better or worse than the other games in the series but I'm so glad there's at least one Anno game like this. And maybe after the success of 1800 more people will start going back and finding new appreciation of it as well.
外围体育投注I'd like to play one while waiting for Anno 1800 DLC to drop, but not sure which one deserves my time?
