  • Excerpt: Kalypso Media continues to impress Family Friendly Gaming Nation with their well thought out simulation games. Rise of Venice is no exception. In fact this game impresses me on multiple levels. This Personal Computer game can be a great educational tool in terms of economics.

Rise of Venice

  • Conclusion: So Rise of Venice then. It’s definitely a step in the right direction for the series as a whole, but I can’t help but feel Gaming Minds have held out on us a little bit. . It’s a shame really as this game was supposed to take the best bits of Port Royale 3 and Patrician IV and clearly raise the bar.

Ein goldenes Zeitalter

Gameswelt

  • Summary: Wem Wirtschafts- und Handelssimulationen schon immer Spaß gemacht haben, der wird auch mit Rise of Venice seinen Spaß haben. Das Handelssystem und die vielen weiteren Aufbauoptionen sind durchdacht und motivieren dazu, sich ein durchstrukturiertes Handelsimperium aufzubauen. Wer bereits Port Royale gespielt hat, wird sich sofort wohlfühlen. Rise of Venice spielt sich nämlich sehr ähnlich, dennoch ist es keine einfache Kopie des Port-Royale -Konzepts.
  • Pros: großer Umfang, viele Handelsmöglichkeiten, stimmige Renaissance-Atmosphäre, authentisches Wirtschaftssystem, große Einheitenauswahl, Mittelmeerraum-Karte in der Spielhülle
  • Cons: zu Beginn überladen, kaum Animationen
