Summary: This game is a must have for all lovers of economic and strategy sims. infinite hours of addicting gameplay. It has a learning curve but once you are familiar with it, especially setting trade routes the game gets a whole lot better. gameplay is great and the music is relaxing!
Summary: A well execute and enjoyable traders / pirates of the Carribean simulation. Play as pirate, privateer, or trader. Let down by the tactical ship battle aspect, which is OK but can get tedious and just doesn't work as a good gameplay mechanism. Also lacks sufficient detail and mechanisms for large-scale management of a trading empire, so a long game can degenerate into micromanagement hell. Still, some entertainment value here.
Summary: This game is captivating. As it is all free play you can play it at you leisure (so far 58 hours of pleasure!). The game play has heaps of variety, twists and turns to keep you hooked and divorced :-) Highly recommended. Better that all the SimCity and tycoon games put together.
Summary: A masterpiece for insiders. If you own a Port Royal I, or a Patrician and do not want another, this is not your game. When you want the best trading sim and also like wooden ship this is big time. When you own Port Royal I it is hard to recommend. I bought this full price and think it is worth it! A suppreme game has been made better! But its gameplay and qualitity is almost the same as version I.
Summary: No, no and no. This sequel is a big disappointment. I was expecting better sea battles and more trading options than in the original Port Royale. Instead of that, they simplified the sea battles and removed some trading options!!!!!! WTF!!!!!!!
