Not Great for Under 15

Summary: I think I am a big kid at heart and when I saw that my sons wanted to order Port Royale I had fancies of a swashbuckling adventure that I could lose myself in as well as my boys. Unfortunately, that is not the case. In fact I took two days to try and help them how to figure out what to do. Trading is key in this game and although I would not say it is a bad game, you have to have a really good understanding of what to do.
PC gameplay doesn't convert to console, much worse

Summary: As others have said, this really is just a graphical update to Port Royale 2, but the gameplay is actually greatly hindered by trying to put a PC game on a console, which is a shame, because I think it COULD be really amazing and offer so much more to the gameplay (i.e. first person battles, walking around in towns talking to people, exploring new areas in first person with the ease of console controls, etc).
Summary: Has glitches that make completing levels and objectives pretty much impossible. Other times, it doesn't register that you've completed a task for a really long time, so you're just stuck in limbo for a couple of hours. Plus, as soon as the game starts getting really fun when you can take on pirates and such, it just ends.
Summary: Clearly would have been better as a PC game. The controls are clumsy and overall game play is confusing with the tutorial being a video rather than hands on game play learning how to do certain things requiring a great deal of memory.
Summary: This is a mathematician's dream game. This is mainly due to the calculations you will be doing when buying and selling goods, of which there are many. I played Kalypso's other recent game Tropico 4 and was pleasantly surprised how accessible yet deep the gameplay was. Port Royale 3 is not as accessible. The training sessions were informative, but the spreadsheets got boring and the battles were also slow.
Summary: Das Spiel wurde komplett auf deutsch angeboten, als das Spiel zu mir nach Hause kam war die Hülle erstmals auf English. Gut dachte ich mir, öffne es trotzdem mal, und da habe ich gesehen, das auch die Anleitung komplett auf English ist. Ich war sehr enttäuscht, da hätte ich 3 - 4 € drauf gelegt und hätte mir es im Laden gekauft, da wäre ich mir sicher gewesen, das ich es auch auf deutsch bekommen hätte.
Summary: Après avoir découvert ce jeu sur internet et aimant vraiment l'univers des pirates et des jeux de gestion,c'est donc pour cela que j'ai sauté le pas...après avoir parcouru le didacticiel et quelques heures de jeu,j'ai beaucoup été déçu par ce jeu qui est vraiment mal pensé que ce soit au niveau du gameplay trop bordélique et très dur à appréhender.dommage... À tester en demo avant d'acheter...
