Summary: I'll admit, this game is pretty monotonous, without any real storyline; but I still love it and could play it for hours. Any gamer who enjoys excelling and striving to beat a record will enjoy this, in my opinion. It's the game I turn to when I don't want to do any heavy thinking. And there are different strategies for succeeding: defeat pirates, make profit trading, or play the risky game of smuggling. Borrow money or live within and expand your own means.
Summary: Sometimes I just want a fun simple game to play that doesn't require many instructions to play. This is a game like that. You get to amass wealth by carrying goods from place to place while fighting or running away from pirates. It's great. It does not use time management so there is no pressure to work faster. Work at your pace and get rich or loss it all to pirates or black market money lenders.
Summary: I enjoyed this game and the time went by faster than I realized as you get envolved. Easy to learn and some key decisions to make in your quest to become a successful master trader. I did not give it a five star as there could have been more ports with a wider variety of cargo and surprises. The graphics were fun however simpistic. The game is not very complicated an in that there are pros and cons....good for everyone, however the true gamester will tire of it fast.
