Anno 1404, AKA Dawn of Discovery, is an RTS game, focusing more on economy micro-management. When the game started up, I was amazed at the awesome orchestral soundtrack. Heck, I was more fascinated by the music than the game at that point. Not only does it have a captivating BGM, its graphics were smooth as baby’s skin. Designers incorporated still images that shift in front of each other to create that 3D effect, which was pretty cool to look at. Minor details were inserted tactfully, such as the smoke from a cigar, sounds of seagulls, splashes as a ship cuts through the water, etc. Off the bat, this game is gonna be good….really good.
