The Settlers 7: Paths To A Kingdom brings The Settlers franchise to a new level in the strategy-game genre, relying on the key mechanisms that made the series a success while innovating and giving gamers the opportunity to build their own thrilling experience.

Developed by the Ubisoft Blue Byte studio, The Settlers 7: Paths To A Kingdom ties in with the tradition of the series success while bringing a fresh, modern and innovative strategy game, based on strong game mechanics and deep gameplay that are hallmarks of the highly acclaimed The Settlers franchise. Players will easily become engaged in an exciting campaign, skirmish maps or multiplayer challenges in a world of lush forests, open meadows, fast flowing rivers, and high mountains.

  • Rich gameplay mechanics: The deep building and production systems allow gamers to expand their kingdom village by village, sector by sector, optimising their creation by fine-tuning production chains and transport systems.
  • Variety of gameplay: Gamers are able to choose the best path to lead their kingdom to victory around three main pillars:
  • Military - by building strong armies and defeating opponents with shear military power.
  • Science - by increasing their influence in the monasteries, gamers are able to have access to the most beneficial technologies.
  • Trade - by occupying the best trade routes to become the wealthiest player on the map.
  • Depending on each style of play, gamers are able to unlock a variation of new and unique possibilities, changing the way they build their own kingdom.
  • An innovative victory system: New victory point system brings more tension and competition to the game. Victory points are awarded in many different ways depending on the choices gamers make throughout the evolution of their kingdom.
  • Online multiplayer: Gamers are able to play online and face opponents in classic adversarial and co-op teamplay modes. Online features include user-generated and downloadable content, in-game feeds, and various leaderboards.
  • A new graphic engine and improved AI: A brand new graphic engine lets gamers experience the beauty of their kingdom in a never-seen-before level of detail and more than a dozen AI profiles, each with unique behaviors, adds enhanced variety to the game like never before.

  • Permanent broadband Internet connection and creation of a Ubisoft account required to play

 Good game, ruined by DRM. DO NOT BUY!

| | See all pheos1's reviews (2)

The game is ok and a good continuation of the series, alothough its did crash a couple of times.
My main problem is that this game is crippled by DRM. You need to be permently connected to the internet to play and also hand over your personal data to register an accounf in order to even start it up. It is also dependent on Ubisofts servers being online which they frequently are not. The game saves all your savegames to the Ubisoft server and even on my 20mbit home connection this take upwards of a minute. What happens a few years down the line when they decide to dicontinue support for the game? My game becomes unplayable?
As I bought this to play mainly on my laptop whilst traveling It is useless to me as I rarely have a stable internet connection. For this reason the game will be retuned. Shame on Ubisoft for ruining the game with greed and paranoia and shame on Play for not telling you that the game is crippled

 Well Balanced Personal RTS.

I have not played the settlers series since 3 - and boy this has come a long way.

The graphics are amongst the best I have seen, the backgrounds are jaw dropping, the level of detail spent on the characters animations is astounding.

The Multiplayer has a full friends / chat interface (even in single player mode) so you and your friends can easily contact each other and setup games.

The CASTLEFORGE is amazing, design and customise your own castle to use as your main base to show off to your friends and rivals.

There are many ways to win which is one of the game highlights, military, trade or science. Although specialising in one can give you great benefits and outcompete the competition you will find yourself doing a little bit of everything in this game.

Really - this is one of the best thought out RTS I have played and the fact that it has become more of a (MMO)RTS that you earn points to customise your castle is great.

The only drawback is the lack of playability without an internet connection. However personally this is no problem for me as I play multiplayer.

Top quality game very worth the money / time investment.

 Restrictive Game play

| | See all Gadgetsnbits's reviews (6)

Firstly as many people state the constant connection required to play this game is annoying - and slow.

However the biggest issue I have with the game is that it is very limited. As a long term Fan of the civilzation series I was hoping the extra hands on building / gathering process would add to the city / town building process. however there are limited maps and no single player free roaming scenario. Computer players gather Win Points much easier that human players

 Well Designed and long lasting Strategy Game

| | See all shadiec's reviews (6)

I very rarely write reviews to a game, because I feel its very much down to the opinion of the person playing, if the game is good or not.

But........ i can hand on heart say, that with this game, any strategy fan will appreciate and enjoy the lengths they have went to in this game. The music, graphics and gameplay are simply fantastic.

This game cannot be rated high enough in my opinion and hasnt been given the credit its deserved. I would almost go as far as to say its a masterpeice in Strategy game design. I've played almost all Strategy games since the first command and conquer series (Even Dune!), so I'm pretty clued up on this genre's evolution. So I can say with pride how amazing this game is, and feel confident in my reasoning.

I will most definately be purchasing any future games or add-ons this series makes.

10/10

 Brilliant
