  • Summary: Port Royal 3 tried to make an immersive world where you could either be a pirate and plunder for riches, or a merchant, using your skills to trade across the Caribbean and amass a fortune. It failed. Horrible graphics, no guidelines on even how to play and even if you manage to find a way to play you will be bored out of your mind. I have nothing left to say about this utter piece of junk.

  • Summary: if you can get best the high learning curve and somewhat repetitive game play. Port royale 3 is a solid 17th century trading sim where you sail across the Caribbean trading, setting up your business and building buildings in ports, and taking part in naval combat. The naval combat is mediocre and repetitive. Lastly, great graphics.

  • Summary: Port Royale 3 is a awesome RTS/resource management game. The battles are not that great, but they are fun for a while. Trading resources was fun in beginning like an hour then i got bored and started a rout(too bad there is a limit of routs). In the end when i got the platinium trophy i had to afk 12 hours for 50 hours trophy and i had 500 mill money. After this i had nothing to do really, but gain more money for nothing to use it on.

  • Summary: Garbage; complete and utter junk. The learning curve is steep as there are no explanations on how to do even the most routine tasks...and once you figure them out you'll wish you hadn't wasted your time. The game offers so little in the way of strategy it's almost remarkable. This game could have been introduced in the early 90's and still would not have been cutting edge. Stay clear if you are looking for anything sim/ strategy related.

  • Summary: Recommended --- Port Royale 3 is a fun RTS/resource management game with ships and pirate battles. I like that you can buy and sell goods, build a fleet and build businesses in towns. I also like the pirate battles. It is nice this was ported to PS3. Not too many other games in this genre are available for PS3 Some of the Controls and UI functions were a little odd to me at first, but I got used to it.

  • Summary: I had always thought that increasing version number of games should brings to you more and more options. Sadly, Port Royale 3 is dumbed down to its knees. Everything I liked in PR2 is gone. And im sad because every new game follows this "fashion".

  • Summary: This game is a surprise. The learning curve is very steep and the game does not offer a lot of help on how to achieve financial success. But, I can't stop myself from playing this. Everything looks crisp and both campaigns are really well done. Hundreds of hours can be spend playing this. A hidden gem.

  • Summary: Fans of the old KOEI strategy games from the 90s will definitely appreciate this game, I hope we see more like it on consoles in the future. If you were a fan of the KOEI's Uncharted series from the SNES days then this game will feel familiar, except with a lot more depth to it.

  • Summary: Surprised there is no mention of the Oct. 2 release on Xbox360 and PS3. This looks to be a more in depth and realistic approach to the Sid Meier's Pirates games. Looking foward to a game where I can lose myself for hours and, it's only $39.99 which is a deal even if the game turns out to be a disappointment.

  • Summary: If you ever played Port Royale 2 (PR2), you will find the 3rd installment stripped most of the best parts of PR2 from PR3. Artifacts, sword fighting, special finds (steam powered sailing ship), loan sharks, character avatars, even the wealth of flags and the option to import your own flag, are all gone. You can't even defend towns you conquer, even with a huge fleet and crew in town. See Kalypso forum entry: http://forum.kalypsomedia.com/showthread.php?
