Anno (Dawn of Discovery)on Wii is exactly how you’d imagine it to be and – more importantly – exactly how you want it to be. Its concept might be fairly dry but the game itself has been ‘Wii-fied’ to make it as accessible as a strategy game could hope to be.
Buildings and other structures can be plonked down in an almost comically easy fashion while road building is a snap. There’s plenty of depth to building your islands, with taxes to set and new shores to set sail to but it’s all implemented in a bright and breezy fashion. If strategy more serious than The Sims normally gives you stat-screen induced sweats, prepare for Anno to lead you on fun-filled baby steps to enlightenment. One of Wii’s finest strategy discoveries.
