    no, it's not.

    it's far, very far from the quality of anno 1701. there is no tutorial for example. And the scrolling is done by cases, not smoothly like in anno.
    It doesn't look great too, even for the DS.

    and far above the rest, there is no multiplayer. not even in local. No multiplayer at all.

    So this game is just... crap.

    i'm really disappointed, specially after so much delays

    like eife said, the scrolling isnt as smooth as anno but it doesnt bother me too much. you also dont have the building freedom like you did in anno. theres only specific places where you can build buildings, etc. I havent played too much of it, cuz i lost interest... [​IMG]

    I can remember the original settlers game on the amiga. I didn't play it much. I think at the time it reminded me a bit of a lemmings rip off, and I never got into it.

    major disappointment [​IMG]

    the game hardly responses to the stylus and everything is kind of slow. the game even has to load before you start for like 20 sekonds. "loading?" you may ask. yes loading. to top it all of: the tv commercial in germany is very bad.

    i played the game when it came out for pc and loved it. the ds version however sucks.

    Well, I was looking forward to this game, too. It was great on PC (Settlers 1, 2 & 3)
    I just gave it a try. Even without tutorial and non-smooth scrolling it could have been great.
    ...but the sluggish controls just suck [​IMG]

    i just deleted this game off my flash card, a major disappointment, game is so slow even on saving, it says saving 5%,10%,etc..... takes a while to load, graphics are worse then anno 1701.

    It looks like a homebrew port, but i really, Really, REALLY enjoyed this game, cause it's Settlers after all. [​IMG] Would be playing it on me way home.

    P.S. Eh... Yhey should make some optimizations in "Settlers 2 DS" !!!

    Errm.. that's just like the original Settlers 2.. ¬¬

    I loved that game.. I saw some screenshots of this, and it was looking just like the pc version of Settlers 2.

    I'll try it later.
