Patrician IV

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: As of means of conquest by trade, Patrician IV is a good solid example that will offer merchant gamers something to chew on. If however you like a bit more turbulence as you lift yourself up and forge a seafaring empire then you’ll likely find yourself distracted as it can get boring once you...

  • Summary: The Hanseatic League was a loose confederation of trading cities that flourished on the northern coast of Europe during the late Middle and early Modern Ages. They are an interesting example of the effects of trade on otherwise isolated cities.

  • Excerpt: Before I go any further I think it bears mentioning - this isn't really a game for me. Or you, for that matter. Or just about anybody else, except for people with an interest in the Middle-Ages seaborne empire of Northern Europe known as the Hanseatic League. Anybody? No?
  • Pros: Strangely compelling, Unique setting, Well balanced
  • Cons: Somewhat straighforward, No real conflict, Weak combat subgame

Patrizier IV - Review

Gamezapp
11 April 2013
  • Summary: Es ist sicherlich nicht einfach, einem Klassiker neues Leben einzuhauchen. Das kleine Gaming Minds Studio hat seine Arbeit daher sehr gut gemacht. Große Innovationen fehlen, aber unterm Strich ist es zu begrüßen, dass das bekannte und gut funktionierende Spielsystem nicht angetastet wurde.
  • Pros: komplexes Handelssystem, hübsche Grafik, fesselndes Endlosspiel, dank Kampagne auch für Einsteiger zugänglich
  • Cons: Seeschlachten mit Macken, kein Mehrspielermodus, wenig innovativ

К счастью, это не самое фатальное, что могло произойти с серией – удержать баланс и не скатиться в пресловутую «казуальность» им удалось,...
