    I'm tempted to grab it up, because I'm wondering if they made any tweaks from the EURO version. Anyone got the word on that?

    I'm glad they changed it. The first cover looks like crap w/ nice logo. The second is the opposite. Probably changed because of poor sales due to awful box art.

    As far as I'm concerned, this is the same stupid crappy game as the EU version. The UK flag is even still there with the rest of the Europe languages. I even thought it's the same exact game.

    The cover is still hideous, I'd never buy it.

    agreed. If I wasn't getting this free, this cover is still so generic that I'd pass it up at any store. I don't care if its got a disco globe shooting LAZERS!!1! out eveywhere. It would get a resounding.... meh.. from everyone.

    lol, If I were to base the game on covers I would see:

    Euro box - Looks like some kind of sims game, but in the past
    US box - Looks like a fighting game based in the middle-ages.

    i just wanna say that i personally tire of hearing all the "cover art critique", so truly inane. [​IMG]

    no offense meant to anyone.

    that is all.

    The 7+ really makes it look crap for the European game.

    How does this compare to silky Anno 1701? Better/worse/hugely inferior?

    Haha wasn't a waste of 5k points? Maybe the gameplay is good but the interface design sucks looks like a windows 95 game ...

    The European version constantly crashed on my DS, and the sound (especially the music) is terrible. I loved Settlers 2 (which this game is based on) when it came out for the PC in 1996, but the DS version is crap.
