  1. Crash test dummy
    by Michael Balsai, USA - Aug 31st 2016

    If you love a game that crashes almost from the time you open it...this one is for you! Oh, and do not expect any help from the game company, they have not answered my questions yet (seems to come out of France). AVOID AT ALL COSTS! If I could give it less that one star I would!

  2. A little underwhelming but still fun for some time
    by Dark Stanley, Germany - May 14th 2016

    Since it was on sale and the last reviews were about one year old Idecided to give it a try.

    The good:
    - it has a flexible economy
    - you can build your own buildings in the cities once you have enough reputation
    - you can organize your fleets easily
    - it's fun to play

    The bad:
    - it has long loading and response times, too long for a game like this
    - there a graphical glitches here and there
    - sea battles just feel wrong. Basically you watch ships circle around each other until one is „dead"
    - all in all the game feels like it's in beta stage

    To sum it up: It's a fun game for some time but it feels very unpolished and buggy. But I haven't run into anything gamebreaking yet.
