Beautiful, modern, cartoony fun build em up
To encapsulate The Settlers 3: Quest of the Amazons in a single phrase, I'd say it's the pinnacle of the 90s era in terms of cartoony world building, a game that is fascinating, really complex but also very well designed. The Settlers 3: Quest of the Amazons also manages to up the ante in all the areas that its elder brethren have dabbled into, from strategy to world building, from management to economic simulation and all of the other little bits in it. In terms of its single player content, this is also a very specific game, creating almost an adventure type experience, with all of its missions, which can take you through the entire array of construction, management, tweaking, economical simulation and beyond, or can focus on just one or a few of these elements, one level at a time, a great way to diversify your activities and to always have something interesting for you to do. And, as I said, it all looks exquisite, modern but still 2D, characterfull, cartoony and fun, but serious in its scope. Definitely worth playing, as is the entire older series.
