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: 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.
Summary: the game is extraordinary, excellent functionality and is easy to use: Naval battles, raids, plundering and invasions await the Adventurer, while the Trader will develop trade routes and the economy to earn glory, fortune and power
Summary: I got this game as a gift for my father. He likes strategic games and so far so good. He really Civilization II and this was the closest thing I could find to that game. I don't think it quite measures up but still a good game.
