    Oh nice one - the second one was definitely the best of the series for me. The later ones started getting a bit strange for my liking, adding things like devine intervention and a sort of cartoon/fantasy feel to it, whereas I preferred the more authentic and historic feel to the second game (I never played the first).

    Well I know that but I can't view them; I was just wondering if anyone could take a couple of screenies and post them here.

    I can wait then. I think as long as it's got the charm and less of the airy-fairyness and comedy of later titles i'll enjoy it; the better graphics are a bonus.

    This is the best news all year!!

    The original was great, but I do think Settlers 2 improved upon it. The only thing it missed was the random map generator - can't understand why they removed that.

    Lets hope it remains faithful. I wish they would make the real Settlers 3, not that pap they've released ever since 2.

    To be fair I thought Settlers 3 was pretty good, although it certainly wasn't as played as S2 was. I've just seen some screenshots and it does look the business, although I hope they cater for those of us who would rather play it entirely in the traditional top-down view; not too sure about all this 3D technology :cool:

    I'm pretty excited about it now, and it's not too far away from release either.

    Slight problem, may not be coming out in UK :-\

    Theres a poll on bottom right of the Settlers site asking if people would buy it if it was released in the UK, comes out autumn in Germany though - so get voting people :p
