Anno 2205 Discussion
I'm something like 36 hours in, about 180k population, and just hit 150k population in temperate. I have all 3 stages of the LLP done and I have to say I'm rather disappointed with how the moon side was handled.
The basic strategy right now is you spam your temperate civilization then send a manned expedition to the north pole to gather resources for your space launch. This expedition is basically the middle of the road masochists, they enjoy the pain of having limbs frozen off in the subzero polar cold.
Then, once enough garden variety masochists lose enough limbs to polar freezing, you get the hardcore masochists (likely the children of the polar masochists) who don't settle for just freezing but only find true joy in getting irradiated too!
So now you have two types of masochists and all the fancy space tech you need to send them to their gleeful deaths all to satiate your temperate climate dwelling overload sadists who only care about getting that sweet, sweet, lunar helium-3 fusion power!
All humor aside (lol), does anyone else feel like the lunar and polar guys are basically just slaves, whose sole purpose is to work the high-output power plants and make space travel possible respectively? I was expecting the polar guys to be throwaways, but I was truly hoping for a 3 or 4 tier lunar evolution like we get for temperate populations. Was I the only one hoping for lunar space-scrapers or was the lunar side rather shallow for others too?
Perhaps that's normal for the franchise though, keeping the advertising to a minimum. I wouldn't know though since 2070 was the first Anno game I owned and I bought it well after release.
Maybe someone will make a mod to bring the lunar settlements up to par.
I have 334 hours in Anno 2070, and only after 42 hours of Anno 2205, I felt like I've done as much as I want to do. Even with mods, I'm not sure that this game is going to be as enjoyable as its predecessor. While I could write a long list of the things I don't like about the game, I've got to admit that it's visually one of the most stunning games I've seen to date - but good looks does not make a good game.
