A confession: In my entire life, I have never played a single Anno game.
Oh sure, I am, at least, aware of the Anno series. The long-running strategy franchise is terrifically influential to many PC gamers, and it's hard not to know its name at a bare minimum. And yet, despite all that, not a single byte of data related to an Anno play session has crossed into my computer before this weekend, when I downloaded the review copy of Anno 1800, Blue Bytes' latest effort.
I have to say, that damn game ate my whole Sunday, and I don't regret a minute of it so far.
