  • If you enjoy exploration and world building with a cyberpunky edge, you'll likely find ANNO to have some appeal

    When it comes to cyberpunk adventures I think I tend to be a bit of a tough sell, somehow jaded after years of different takes on that style. That said, ANNO at least has an odd sort of kitchen sink approach that helps flesh it out a little more than the average, with plenty of exploring, some combat, and then even mini-game-esque sequences like working the bar that help to break things up and are generally well-implemented. I did find that the map wasn’t always as helpful as it could/should be, thinking that in order to get to a spot I had to be on the different side of the building, but as that’s something you learn after getting burned once or twice you can get over that bump. The somewhat slow way you put together what all is going on may or may not appeal to everyone, but in general there’s more positive going on here than negative and if you like these sorts of settings you’ll likely enjoy giving it a spin.
