** Subverted, in that few would be stupid enough to take such an offer after being burned to the ground. On the other hand, one may be desperate enough.

Each game has a 'Continuous Mode' wherein you can play as long as you want, competing with A.I. players (or other humans over multiplayer) for territory and resources, and a number of scenarios, often-times with several arranged to form a storyline. Players begin with a ship (or in some scenarios, a warehouse on an island) and a negative income. You have to build houses to collect taxes, but then your peasants want fish, and then they want something to occupy them.. and so on.

* TooDumbToLive: In the campaign of ''2070'', you help the tech faction come into possession of what is described as an intelligent virus. So far, it sunk the prototype of the city-ship arks and may have been responsible for several minor near-disasters. So... let's [[spoiler: plug it into F.A.T.H.E.R., the A.I. that rules the tech faction and administrates its city. What's the worst that could happen? Hint: You spend the rest of the campaign finding out.]]

*** on the Virus front, to be Fair, until that point, [[spoiler: Both your ark's EVE unit and F.A.T.H.E.R had recognised, and fought off, the Virus's attempts to gain access to their systems, and giving how disturbingly SMART it was acting (likely containing an AI component itself), they were trying to lock down its source on the assumption that there may be OTHER events caused by similar attacks.]]

* {{DRM}}: Anno 2070 has multiple layers of DRM, as expected from an {{Ubisoft}} release. It allows three activations per copy, and the game as launched required a new activation whenever the PC's graphics card was swapped out. This was (by WordOfGod from Ubisoft) an intended feature, but the graphics card issue has since been patched out due to massive InternetBackdraft. Furthermore, an online connection is required to start up the game and to access certain special features related to the ark structure.

** Rufus Thorne sort-of takes this role in ''2070'' despite his potentially ominous name, recognizing that Strindberg is almost entirely at fault for the [[BigDamPlot dam catastrophe]] and commending the player's role in containing the situation and helping control the other disasters that strike shortly after. He's not too happy if you side with the Eden Initiative, but he doesn't make any blatant threats like Strindberg. Indeed, his main complaint about you using wind power is its inefficiency, and whilst Strindberg is panicking and raving on about all the money he is going to loose, Thorne is quickly and efficiently Directing you to rescue Trapped workers, straight out saying they are more valuable then the surviving goods/facilities . his main Character Trait appears to be a Fairly positive form of Pragmatism, and Valuing competent and efficient subordinate's greatly.

** ''2205'' shows that Global Trust paid dearly for this culture in the long run. They're no longer a MegaCorp, in fact they're long since defunct and held as an example of how not to conduct business.



** In ''2205'' you have to balance temperate, arctic, and lunar facilities together in harmony.



** ''2205'' is also generally optimistic. Earth in general is enough of a disaster area that lunar colonization is considered tenable, but the ice caps are kept frozen with technology, organic food is still available, and ''all'' technology has been refined to the point that even mining no longer harms the remaining environment.



** The main adversary in ''2205'' is the Orbital Watch, an army of nutjobs who oppose lunar settlement for ideological reasons that they never quite feel the need to divulge.


Added DiffLines:

** This continues in ''2205'', although interestingly it hasn't progressed any further. Cyber-eye implants are universally needed for anyone in advanced fields, but instead of replacing body parts, high-ranking scientists and executives wear cuputerized Intelli-clothing.

There are also periodic elections which grant career points for anyone who votes. These constitute the main ways to earn career advancement in the game.

*** All the faction leaders in general. They don't like each other, but will work together at the drop of a hat if there's an outside threat they consider significant.
