Game Review:

Very often, games from foreign countries that had been out for a while that are brought oversea and to the U.S. sometimes don't do too well. This is evidently been true with certain titles that are not so well taken because of the generally different audiences and styles games that entices around the world. Titles from England and Germany stay in there never to see face in the U.S. and usually for a reason. Majority of computer games released today usually have super flashy graphics and superior technology backing them up, however, there have been a shortage of games that really provide rock solid gameplay with lots of depth to back it up. Recent blockbuster titles such as Unreal Tournament and Quake 3 Arena have been tons of fun to play but lack much depth. One of the more in-depth genres of games have been civilization builders, games like Sim City and Civilization which provide a lot depth and replay value at the same time. How does the foreign market fit in here? Anno 1602, or better known as 1602 A.D. in the U.S. has finally hit shore.
