It's... okay. I didn't find reason to play it more than a few hours as the gameplay couldn't keep me grasped. The building system is nowhere near as good as Frontier's other games, Planet Coaster and Planet Zoo; but there is slightly better management than in Coaster due to the research and genome angles.Chrill wrote: ↑10 Jan 2021 15:12 I don't think I actually bought anything on Steam's Winter Sale. Utterly disappointing discounts, and most were only 20-25% off anyway.
EDIT: I picked up Jurassic World Evolution, a sort of Zoo Tycoon meets Jurassic Park game by Frontier, for only €4.99 which is like 90% off. I have not played it yet.

The bugs were funny in the beginning, got a few laughs out of it, but then after a while, it just becomes so frustrating to the point of depressing
If anyone has played any of the previous Annos, I feel like 1800 is a good mix of the previous version, Anno 2205, but with the old school maps of the even earlier versions.

It depends why you didn't like the old ones. There's a bit of history here, but the TL;DR is that Anno 1800 is basically more of the same.
Anno up to 2070 had singular maps with multiple islands that all players competed on. Anno 2205 introduced sessions, whereby a session is one map which had a single island that the player built up. There were three sessions from three biomes, Temperate, Arctic and the Moon, with resources from the different biomes required to level up citizens in other biomes.
Anno 1800 takes the idea of sessions and mixes it with the old style maps with multiple islands. So you now have an entire map of temperate islands and a whole map of, what appears to be, Caribbean islands. DLCs have since introduced some extra sessions to build in but the same basic recipe lives on;
- Settle Islands
- Build production chains
- Settle more islands
- Build more production chains
- Move products between islands
- Go to 3

Now I'm making the transition again to Warzone 2100.
I juuuust missed the big Slipways demo during SGF, but the browser version is still eating up my free time like crazy. It's a short 4X game where you don't eXterminate, but uhh, eXhale I guess.
Very fun and very addicting. Can recommend if you liked Mini Metro.
See if you can beat my highscore

My goodness, I use to Love Warzone2100. I remember playing the demo of it and it was incredible.
I never completed it without using "Biffer Baker" when I was younger. Just couldn't get past a couple of particular missions!
Finally done it a couple of years ago though I guess a young mind hasn't got much in the way of a honed skill and strategy haha.
Still an amazing game, and I've never found anything even nearly like it. I use to have the Project Atom as my avatar many years ago
Great.. now my nostalgia is going through the roof!
Latest game I have been playing, and streaming, was Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
I absolutely adored the first game, Blind Forest, but Will of the Wisps? I end up getting so incredibly stressed and frustrated with it when it bugs out or does incredibly annoying things by itself. It looks and sounds absolutely gorgeous.. but just doesn't play anywhere nearly as well for some reason. The checkpoints don't really help either.
