Game description and comments: 

 Ok, first off this game is alot more like Age of Empires than it's like The Settlers. After you install the game and run it for the first time, sit down get comfortable and don't expect to get up for the next 2-3 hours. This game gets very addictive if you like strategy sims. Like most it gets harder the longer you play through the game, but once you get over the game's small learning curve it becomes fairly easy at times, but will challenge even the most veteran player when they least expect it. Visually the game gets an A+ for the lovely visuals and quirky details, but it gets a C in the voice department since at times the settlers use modern day phrases and slang. When it comes to buildings the game gets a B since theres alot to build, but it feels like you spend too much time and space building farms and houses for your settlers to live in. As for military units the game gets a solid C+ since there are a good variety, but not enough to satisfy a hard core strategy sim gamer like me. Overall I highly recommend you try this game, its worth it! (it's ESRB rated Teen)
