  1. Poor game
    by thomasan, United Kingdom - Dec 30th 2013

    I regret buying this. It is not at all intuitive, graphics are poor, and it has little depth. Don't waste your money as I did... even at the sale price it is not worth it.

  2. It's Ok....

    I was expecting more from this game. I was hoping it would be a 15th Century version of one of the X3 games. They really talked up the trade and combat. It turns out this game is very limited in scope.

    Many of the actions that you need to take to get the economy going are not intuitive. I ended up restarting the "Campaign Mode" about 6 times before I figured out how to set it up. Then I stuck it on high speed and just watched the money accumulate.

    "Campaign Mode" is kind of a misnomer because all they do is tell you that you need to start a new town, build a church or upgrade a theater in the next year or two.

    Building your towns is a little weird because they have a list of "suggested buildings," or a list of "all buildings." The "all buildings" list lumps everything that you've built in with everything you could build, so you have to scroll through the big long list every so often to see if there are any upgrades available to your existing buildings.

    Oh yeah, the game voice is kind of annoying too.

    I've played it for about 3-4 hours and am ready to move on.
