Summary: My husband and I have played this on the Xbox 360. I got it for him for Christmas. He loved the first 2 and I seen they had a part 3 and jumped to order it on Xbox 360. Instead of fighting over who is going to play I ordered the computer version for myself! Very fun!
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.
