Die Entwickler von keen games haben ganze Arbeit geleistet, was die Umsetzung von Anno: Erschaffe eine neue Welt auf das Nintendo-Handheld betrifft. Die DS-Version ist dabei komplett inhaltsgleich mit der für die Wii-Konsole und spielt sich trotzdem so, als wäre sie extra für den DS entwickelt.

Despite a few minor flaws, Dawn of Discovery is a very impressive package, and overall, it provides a full-fledged real-time strategy game on the DS without cutting corners.

Dawn of Discovery grows more challenging, becomes less forgiving, and offers fewer hints as you delve into the latter half. There are surprises coming that, if you don’t look too closely at the screenshots (and avoid the manual), you may not anticipate. Rather than write a book about everything this game has to offer – which believe me, could be done – I will stop here and leave you with one final message: if you enjoy sim games and have a DS, this is the epitome of a must-own release.

However, those just a couple of tiny issues during my entire playtime with a game that barely got any press, no reviews, and is being passed unnoticed by the gaming public at large. There's a fine line between being a reviewer and an evangelist, but I'm going to cross it. Look, people, this is what the DS works great for. If you like strategy at all and you need a game to get you through the long hot summer nights, get Dawn of Discovery.

Auch auf dem Nintendo DS ist Anno – Erschaffe eine neue Welt das Mekka für Hobbystrategen geworden. Durch die Straffung des Gameplays haben die Entwickler es auch geschafft sowohl Einsteiger, als auch Profis an das Spiel zu fesseln, wobei sich Profis manchmal im Storymodus etwas unterfordert fühlen dürften. Die Hauptgeschichte ist schön erzählt und bietet auch immer wieder die nötige Motivation weiterzuspielen. Selbst danach hat man mit dem Endlosmodus wieder genug Möglichkeiten an der Hand, das Spiel für längere Zeit im DS zu behalten. Schade ist allerdings, dass es keinen Mehrspielermodus mehr gibt. Wer also nur ein wenig mit der Serie anfangen kann und Strategiespielen nicht abgeneigt ist, der kommt wohl an Anno – Erschaffe eine neue Welt nicht vorbei.

I don’t know why the PR and Marketing for Ubisoft failed us with Dawn of Discovery. I really enjoyed playing Dawn of Discovery. I am happy to do a review for this hand held simulation video game. I hope to see sequels to Dawn of Discovery in the near future.

I'd hazard to suggest that Dawn of Discovery is the most entertaining, engaging historical strategy title on the DS. Fans of the genre should definitely check this game out. Even if a game like Civilization Revolution didn't quite do it for you, you're sure to satisfy any strategic craving you have with Dawn of Discovery.

Pari réussi pour les développeurs d'Anno : Créez Votre Monde, qui sont parvenus à rendre le gameplay plus accessible sans en altérer la richesse. Destiné à un public familial, ce jeu de gestion à la jouabilité remarquable devrait permettre à tout un chacun de s'initier doucement au genre. Les adeptes de l'opus précédent pesteront avec raison contre le nouveau système de gestion militaire et la disparition du mode multijoueur, mais résisteront-ils longtemps à son emballage séduisant et à sa panoplie de nouvelles fonctionnalités ?

Vandal Online (Jul 06, 2009)
Con la sencillez como seña de identidad, Anno ha regresado con éxito a Nintendo DS manteniendo todas las virtudes que convirtieron a la anterior entrega de la serie en una de las propuestas estratégicas más interesantes de la portátil. Resulta, eso sí, un título demasiado sencillo que, de nuevo, se aleja de lo que en principio busca un veterano en el género de la estrategia. Precisamente por eso, vuelve a convertirse en una propuesta tremendamente recomendable para los usuarios que quieran probar fortuna en el género de la estrategia y gestión de centros urbanos. El problema es que esperábamos que tras asentarse con éxito en el mercado de las portátiles con Anno 1701, los desarrolladores dieran un paso adelante y trataran de abarcar algo más para asemejar al máximo el título al juego visto en compatibles. Tal vez la próxima vez.

GameSpot (Jul 06, 2009)
It doesn't have the era-spanning historical scope that many games of this type have, nor does it bring anything new to the table. But the flaws here aren't enough to overshadow the pleasure of building your cities, sailing the seas, and discovering what awaits over the horizon. The brisk pace and accessible city-building mechanics make Dawn of Discovery a game that should appeal to the adventurous spirit in just about anyone.

Multiplayer.it (Jul 13, 2009)
I problemi segnalati nell'ultimo paragrafo spezzano un po' il ritmo di un gioco altrimenti ben fatto, divertente e appassionante come tutti i titoli del genere dovrebbero essere. La versione DS di Anno, inoltre, aveva il compito di riuscire a coniugare profondità e semplicità d'uso, e anche in questo la missione di Keen Games può dirsi sostanzialmente riuscita, pur con i difetti di cui sopra. In definitiva ci troviamo di fronte ad una buonissima conversione di un gioco che trova ancora il suo habitat naturale su PC, ma che saprà movimentare i pomeriggi di tutti gli appassionati della categoria possessori di DS: da evitare, insomma, solo se proprio i gestionali non vi prendono!

Jeux Vidéo Network (Jun 10, 2009)
Un jeu de gestion assez complet, qui ravira les novices du genre, avec une interface au stylet bien adaptée à la DS. Le tout manque néanmoins d’originalité, de variété et surtout d’un mode multijoueur.

Everyeye.it (Jul 07, 2009)
ANNO è un classico gestionale, che introduce pochissimi nuovi elementi nell'ambito del suo genere, risultando l'ennesima "buona trasposizione" di titoli tradizionalissimi, e recuperando fin nel minimo dettaglio lo standard della categoria. La ricca possibilità di scelte nella gestione di tutte le risorse, tuttavia, nonchè qualche elemento creativo ed una certa immediatezza nel gameplay (dovuta ad un'ottima organizzazione dei menù e dei comandi), lo rendono comunque un titolo da prendere in considerazione. Non introduce nuovi standard, ma sfrutta molto bene quelli ormai conosciuti dalle vecchie glorie di questo genere videoludico.

IGN (Jul 07, 2009)
Dawn of Discovery for the Nintendo DS is without a doubt a high-quality game, one strategy fans should certainly lend some of their valuable attention. The Story Mode alone is worth a play through, and the Continuous Play mode offers one of the more rewarding DS strategy experiences of the year. A few nagging issues with touch-screen controls and Story Mode pacing make it impossible for a universal recommendation, but with any luck this is just the beginning of a great new direction for this series going forward.
