Rise of Venice (PC)

27 March 2015
  • Excerpt: While Rise of Venice considers itself a strategy game, it's more of a 3D trading simulator. The single-player campaign has a story mode that will show you the ropes and is required to unlock the multiplayer component.  Sadly there is nobody online to play against.
  • Pros: Beautiful graphics; non-linear gameplay; variety in missions and natural disasters
  • Cons: Nobody online to play against; high learning curve
