  • 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.

  • 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.

Rise of Venice

Looki.de
26 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Rise of Venice unterscheidet sich zwar nur in wenigen Punkten von seinem quasi-Vorgänger Port Royale 3. Das neue Politiksystem, das altbekannte, suchterzeugende Gameplay, das liebliche Setting und die Nachvollziehbarkeit der Spielwelt sorgen aber dafür, dass wir den Ausflug ins Venedig der Renaissance jedem Freund klassischer Wirtschaftssimulationen ans Herz legen können.
  • Pros: Schicke 3D-Karte, Sehr gute Sprecher, Angenehme musikalische Untermalung..., Sehr gute Bedienung, 12 Stunden Kampagne, Motivierende Szenarien, Tolles Endlosspiel, Komplexes Gameplay, Nachvollziehbare Handels- und Politiksysteme, Unglaublich motivierend, Gutes Tutorial, 4 Spieler im Endlosspiel, 2 Spieler im Szenario, Macht Spaß, wenn man Entspannung sucht
  • Cons: Vieles spielt sich in Menüs ab, Inszenierung der Geschichte wenig mitreißend, ...die aber keine Akzente setzt, Viele Wiederholungen, Seeschlachten kaum der Rede wert, Alles durchkalkuliert und ausrechenbar, Etwas behäbig

  • Cons: Időigényes a betanulása, Néhány menü igencsak eldugott, Fura bakik, Gyenge tengeri csata rész, Nem foglalkozik a kor birodalmaival és történelmi eseményeivel
