Widelands Review

Empire building games are some of the oldest games around, and also some of the most engaging. The addictive loop of expanding and leading your empire whichever way you want is incredibly addicting. Some of the oldest city builders are regarded the most fondly, and one of them is Settlers 2. Fans of the game have decided to revive it in a little open-source game called Widelands.

Installing Widelands is simple. Just run the installer and select where you want it installed. The first thing you'll notice when you boot it up is that the graphics are pretty dated. If that's a deal-breaker for you, stop right there. The game instead focuses on beautiful 2D graphics that stand among the best of them.

The gameplay loop is pretty straightforward like most empire builders. You'll need to gather resources, expand to gather more of those resources, and train troops to defend yourself. Along the way, you'll need to research new technology to improve the efficiency of your empire. There is a single-player mode and multiplayer matches where you meet other clans and have to compete with them. You can choose diplomacy or warmongering to deal with them, though unfortunately the game heavily favors warmongering. 

Overall, this is a great peek into the early 2000s. The mechanics, visuals, and music will tug on your heartstrings. If you want to have some fun with some friends on a Sunday night, then you should give Widelands a download. You won't regret it at all.
