Unfortunately, as good as this all sounds, Settlers III has a slew of glaring problems which mar an otherwise brilliant game. For starters, you can't load a saved game while you are in a campaign. You have to quit the game you're playing, exit to the menu screen and load your game from there. What the hell is that all about? Did the designers think that this would encourage people not to reload their game when something went horribly wrong? All it serves to do is waste time. The quirky disc swaps make this problem even worse as you are often prompted to insert a different disc when you go back to the main menu from the campaign you are playing. Also, like so many other games in this genre, Settlers III basically comes down to micro-management of resources. Instead of offering up a really unique playing experience, Settlers III thrusts you in the role of 'Slider King' as you are constantly changing resource allocation to get the perfect mix of efficiency and speed. You don't have any real control over your individual units and you can't physically direct settlers from one building to another. It reminds me a lot of Colonization. It's a great game, but you spend most of your time cycling through each and every building to check production. I also ran into some problems with the AI, both with my units and the enemy units. Often times enemy soldiers will wait at your border and not enter your territory, so you can take them out with bowmen from afar. And your own troops will wander off to conquer enemy buildings if you don't continually tell them to hold their positions when you're in enemy territory. Plus, half the group will often totally ignore your orders and attack an enemy tower that you didn't want them to get anywhere near. This often causes you to lose a number of units to sheer interface stupidity. Perhaps my biggest problem with Settlers III, though, is the lack of a decent printed manual. The online guide is fantastic and outlines every feature of the game, but you can't access it when you're playing the game and it's nice to have a reference that will tell you what every resource affects when you're playing a game this complex.
