Summary: I started out giving it a 10 for being one of only a few PC style strategy games ported to the consoles. In the strategy resource managing area it is a 10. Unfortunately the controls are not laid out well, and there is no user manual or "comprehensive" tutorial.
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: If you like trading games you will love this game. I bought it for myself and my girlfriend who loves these types of games. The ship battles are alright and the graphics are ok too. It's different than SId Mier's Pirates and has more micromanagement involved.
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.
