- Depth / Complexity
Each decision you make will affect you for the rest of the game. The whole game revolves around the collection of resources, and if you use your resources on one project, you probably will not have enough resources for another. So you have to make your choice and live with it: Do you build a town here so that you can get the resources that you're going to need, or do you build a road to cut the other guy off before he blocks your progress?
The whole interface for the game is pretty straightforward in that the game highlights which areas you can click on, and then you click on one of them. Simple and effective.
- Single-player Fun
The AI in this game ranges from challenging to difficult. If you're playing for the first time, you'll probably lose against an easy AI. It'll take you a little while to master what's going on before you have a chance at beating them, and once you have, the difficult AI is still pretty darn tough. The AI for Settlers is excellent.
Settlers is based on the German board game 'Settlers of Catan'. Originality really isn't a factor here.
Personally I like the tiles used in Settlers more than the original tiles used in the 'Settlers of Catan' board game. The graphics in this game are simple and straightforward - nothing fancy, just effective, which is fitting for a board game.
