Jimquisition: Ubisoft

The Jimquisition has criticized many game publishers, especially Electronic Arts. Jim Sterling's wise judgements have been just and fair, but not altogether inclusive. EA isn't the only weasel in the lavatory, and it's high ...

Shockingly, Ubisoft screws up PC games again

Last week, Ubisoft warned that those customers who did not pirate a number of its PC games would be unable to play them due to a server switch that'd render DRM unusable. Naturally, Ubisoft managed to cock it up completely, w...

Ubisoft: Anno 2070 DRM is 'working as intended'

The latest miserable press surrounding Ubisoft's trashy DRM concerned news that Anno 2070 would confuse a simple hardware change with an entirely new PC -- a real problem when you can only install the game three times before ...

Ubisoft DRM allegedly blocking new computer hardware

Review: Anno 2070 photo
Review: Anno 2070
by Maurice Tan

The popular Anno series has survived for over a decade now, each title being numbered in such a way that makes you wonder if they form some kind of sequence test. There is only so much you can do with wooden ships and colonial-era economies, and instead of going for an Anno 1805 or Anno 1299 the franchise has finally made the jump to the future.

Mankind has messed up the planet's ecosystem leading to a dramatic rise in sea levels, forcing civilization to spread across somehow uninhabited islands that act as the colonies of old. Two new and completely different factions -- the ecology-minded Eden Initiative and the industrialist Global Trust -- now vie for control of the remants of civilization, and it is up to you to keep trying to create the perfect archipelago empire until the birds start chirping and you notice the sun has started to rise.

Yep, it's still an Anno game alright.
