I would like it....if it were easy to use or worked well

  • Summary: I recently received this game as a present and was eager to get into it. After (pretty boring, as game tutorials go) tutorials, I was ready to play, but the interface with the game is very hard to get accustomed to.

Uninspired

  • Summary: I am a big fan of economic simulation games. On the video side, the Patrician series, as well as the Port Royale titles, have burned up more hours than I care to consider. On the board game side, nothing delights me more than a bruising economic game like Le Havre or Baltimore & Ohio .

  • Summary: When you first start, it gives you a little tutorial, but unlike most tutorials, you're spending most of your time trying to figure out things for yourself. The instructions are by no means easy to follow. I bought the game four months ago and I still don't have a clue as to how to play it!

  • Summary: Looked to have promise but never materialized. Simple start but never quite gelled into a complete game. Wait for the bargin bin before trying.

  • Summary: Pretty cool in single player but the fact that two patches have come out within 4 days of the release date are a tell - tell sign of what Paradox had in mind. Also, you can't even contact them for customer support, its not an option.

  • Summary: Don't bother buying this, the game lacks excitement of any kind. Even the supposedly high-end naval combat becomes little more than tedium after a few minutes.

EIC is no Sid Meier's Pirates...

James A. Pappas Jr. "jaypappas", Amazon

  • Summary: Well, I was excited for a summer pirate game, I loved the Pirates! series and even dabbled with the pirate MMO that's out there, but as much as I love the genre this game just misses the mark: Pros: Pretty ship models, multiple ship fleet battles, strategic map and tactical combat for the best of...

"Very pretty, but ..."

Peter, Mighty Ape

  • Summary: I've spent a few days with the open beta test of this game. As the title suggests, this is a trading game. You get to sail ships from Europe to Africa, Arabia and India to bring back colonial goods.

Far too simple to be of any lasting interest

rosbif, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: It's a nice idea for a game, and I like the large scope of it, but not one aspect is complex enough to hold my interest. Once you have set up a couple of trade routes to bring in a steady cashflow (which is totally out of proportion to the expenditures in the game - you can quickly run up more money...

nur einmal ladbar?!

M. Pamer "manfredpamer", Amazon
19 December 2010
  • Summary: Von der Spielgestaltung bin ich zwar sehr angetan, was mich stört (da ich nun einmal ein "Endlos"-Spieler bin), ist die Tatsache, dass schon gespeicherte Spielstände nicht mehr ladbar sind, ohne dass das Programm gleich abstürzt.
