Summary: Could be better. And way over priced. There are free apps that are the exact same as this. I thought it was have 3D battle scenes, but it is just basically a board game, a fun one, but it isn't something that should ever be a console game. As an app, or a computer game it is good, as a console game I don't like it. Just seems like a waste for the potential of the consoles.
Summary: A little buggy at times. Nice change from the average genre, bright, big, & fast tittles of today. Financial take over Is a bit tricky to get the hang of (due to lack of clear documentation)... but not difficult to master quickly as you you begin to understand the economic dynamics of the game. Although I think the XBL download is a slightly different (more sand box options) version than the disk, even after installing updates.
Summary: I wanted to like this game. I've always enjoyed economic sims. There is just something a bit lacking in this one but it was still fun for a while. +You can build industries in different towns. +There is a good variety of trade goods to deal with. +The main map when sailing from port to port is sprites but it is 3D rendered when in ship combat.The ship combat is kind of cool. -I wish you could actually get to sword fight the captain like in one old game I recall.
