This game is great if you can get past the DRM outrage of 3 activation limit + tages hell of terror!~ But it is great, but does not have multiplayer like the previous anno 1701 which is freaking amazing, this one has updated graphics and the period is set in 1404 of course. Still the same economy based game but no multiplayer :( Me sad. I will still play it though!
