Anno 2070, banished or Civilization V?

#1unknowninfo775Posted 2/21/2014 4:10:16 AM
Topic basically.
I played the demo for Civ and thought it was awesome, I really enjoyed it and wanted to buy it; but then my boyfriend said that Anno was a pretty cool game and so was banished (plus Anno is currently on sale) and that if I liked Civ I'd probably like them too
.
Now I'm stuck for choice and neither Banished or Anno has a demo for me to try them out, so I wondered it any of you guys have played any of them for your opinions.

I just bought Anno 2070 myself and it's got me hooked despite having no idea what I am doing at all.

I've only played Civ, but I love it. Especially with the expansions, I'll find myself installing it on a laptop or something just to see how well it runs and lose 6 hours of my life in it.

You missed Civ V bundle mate! It was a killer deal.

I love all of them and they are my cup of tea and out of the 3 I would rank Civ on top (as long as youbhave all DLCs and expac for replayability) and Anno( due to patch and polish abd if you have all the DLCs as well) and then Banished last ( though it doesnt mean its not a great game but I think it requires a patch or two but a very great game nonetheless).

Out of the 3, you might wabt to see if you could handle Ubisoft's DRM as they still require you to be online to use the ark (its ridiculous) and Civ V is steam only (pro and con depending on you) , banished however has a drm free release on GOG and I thinknyou can buy direct from the dev abd he will give u a DRM free copy and steam copy.

Get the three games since they are all worth it but unless you cant get either Civ and anno with all DLCs and expansions due to budget constraints then get banished.

Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that it doesnt mean that once you already have an established town in banished and a decent population that you are safe and could rest easy. Things like fire and plague could happen that could wipe out your population. Also things like lets say you got unlucky and supplies didn't get in time, if your young population diesnoff and you are left with old people then you are screwed.

Torn between Anno and Civ.
Since you've played Anno would you recommend I get it with all the DLC or does it really matter?

Well I've played the first mission and started a continuous mission (which gives no help).

I'm hooked after just that but have no idea what I am doing yet so it's only going to get better once I know.

It's similar in some ways to CIV so far but that might change dramatically.

I'd definitely recommend it though especially while it's on sale. I haven't got the DLCs yet as I asked for information on them here but everyone refused.
