The 24 games of Christmas! Day #12: Anno 1800

2 mins read

It’s that time of year again! We’re counting down the days to Christmas with our own little “advent calendar” – one new game to play over the holiday season each and every day.

As the year winds down, things get really busy. We’ve got Christmas parties to attend, the end of year rush on work, and all the rest of it. But it’s also a time where we take holidays, find a moment to relax, and enjoy the company of others. This is the best chance to catch up on some key games that you might have missed from the year… or just play that multiplayer game that you’ve been waiting to get a crew together for.

Day 12: Anno 1800

Read our review here.

There is nothing particularly seasonal about Anno 1800. There’s no “Christmas” event or anything like that. I’m simply including it on our “advent calendar” because a good simulation game is the perfect thing to sink your teeth into over the Christmas season. reviews Anno 1800 on Sony PlayStation 5

I don’t know about you all, but I find that if I start a simulation or strategy game, and then put it down for a week or two, it’s almost impossible for me to get back into it, so I have to start again. Because of this I generally hold on to my Civilization and Cities Skylines annual plays for the Christmas season, where I can play every day for a few weeks and actually reach an end point to the campaign. This year I have every intention on playing through Anno 1800 again. As the first console Anno in many years, this is a delightful little experience, well worth your time.
