Control the marijuana trade routes, plunder convoys and citys and eventualy get your own city.

The game does not work at all (the process is launched, but nothing is display). That's just a pay for a bug program.

This used to be one of my favourite games in my pre-Steam days so I thought i'd buy it on Steam too.

Well, i can't even get it working and according to the forums, many people have the same problem.

At least now I've learnt to check the reviews before buying any game on Steam as they even sell stuff that doesn't work.

Only get this game if: 1.) its on sale, and 2.) you are OK spending some time learning the cryptic UI. Once you get past the interface (it doesnt look bad [for its time], it's just that nothing makes sense) you'll find a pretty solid trading game with lots of different ways to grow your business. To help learn the UI, there are several different "Let's Play: Port Royale 2" type videos on youtube where you can pick some things up.

All around, pretty good. It grows on you, and is something different for your Steam Library.

While the game is brilliant, it should be made known that it isn't really compatible with anything over Windows XP.

This was working for me on Windows 7 64bit using an ATI gfx card but since updating it past 14.1 the game no longer works.
I can get the game to boot onto the main menu screen but none of the selectable menu buttons are visable.

On the Port Royale 2 fansite they state there is two option available, either play it on XP or buy the 'Reloaded' version.

I guess Steam doesn't have that version.

I have since managed to get the game working, here's how:

1) (Possibly optional) Try setting your launch options as "-32bit" (without quotations)

2) Select browse local files for Port Royale 2 from the Steam menu, scroll down and right click PR2.exe and select Properties and then select compatibility mode for Windows 98/Windows ME, then click apply.

3) Finally change your desktop resolution to 1280x720 (this is the key part). You may also find that simply by changing your desktop resolution to 1280x720 that you won't have to bother with the other options.

A very basic buy low, sell high type gameplay. I haven't gotten too far, so I can't comment on how the mechanics of owning buildings and having trade routes and the like, but for what I've played, it's good.

I bought this in the steam sale thinking I could become a pirate - this has hardly anything to do with pirates. I have now cut off my leg and gouged out an eye for basically a trading game....arghhhh!

There is no better economic simulator that exists that I know of. There are many good City Sims and Tycoon style games that wish they had the economic engine behind this game. Every one of the 65+ cities in this game have unique features and needs based on a complex mix of random events and your ability to supply them. I could go on and on about the complex yet easier to comprehend industry and economic simulation in this game, it is that engrossing and one of a kind. I am actually upset PR3 was so terrible compared to this gem.

On top of the amazing economic simulation, there is a pretty decent ship-ship, ship-shore, & shore-shore combat engine. It is no Pirates! but for the game being more a trading sim that a ship combat sim it add a whole new dimension when the trading gets a little stale. Chasing Pirates and Taking over cities for a friendly Viceroy is not a bad pass time either.

I actually wrote the first comphrehensive walkthrough for this game back in 2005. Under the name (GeneralNic) it will get you up and running and getting a few trade routes on auto-trade so you can focus on ship combat or setting up another zone of the trade and dominating another resource.

(Hint) once you have a few lucrative trade routes set up, but a book on the space bar and leave it over night, I woke up with 2 Billion gold and had no trouble taking the Carribean in the name of the Dutch!

A very engrossing and very deep 17th century economic simulator. You start as a small time trader with a small ship, a warehouse, and a purse of gold. From there you buy goods cheaply at one port and sail off to other ports and hope to find one that will buy those goods at a high price. Once you obtain enough capital you increase in rank. Rank increases allow you to hire more captains to have separate fleets, and obtain more building permits in different ports.

The economic depth is amazing. Each port is capable of producing 5 different goods. Some goods production is dependant on having a supply of another good, and that's where you the trader comes in. Do you want to buy rope from Port A? Then they need a good supply of hemp from Port B. Furthermore, once you obtain a building permit in a particular port you can become a greater part of the local economy by building your own warehouse and then manufacturing facilities. If you are smart enough and have the gold you can buy basic crop plantations in one port, produce that good cheaply, haul the goods to your advanced manufacturing facility at another port to cheaply produce the finished good and sell it for a massive profit. For extra profit you can also build housing for the new workers for your faciliteis and have them pay you rent. You also make money buy shipping in surplus workers from other ports to the port that now needs those workers.

Not that there aren't plenty of obstacles to stand in your way. When the game starts out in free play there are no pirates active and no nations are at at war. As the game progresses the four nations, Spain, France, England, and the Netherlands can and will end up at war with each other. You can attempt to stay friendly with each nation and continue selling to all sides or offer to help one side over the other by raiding ship, blockading ports, and attacking ports. Doing so rewards you, but at the cost of not being able to do business with the other nation until you repair your status with them.

Piracy is your other main concern. Pirates start off weak, with a single ship, but quickly grow to a major problem. They will sack ships, and invade ports. The sacking of ports is of great concern if you have a warehouse in that town as they will steal all of your stored goods, otherwise it is a great opportunity to sell the newly ravaged port fresh supplies. You can mitigate the risk of having your favorite port raided by pirates and enemy nations by donating cannons and paying for soldiers at your personal expense, and it is VERY expensive, so don't bother until you are wealthy and have something worth protecting. You could try to kill the pirates, but the game will not let you attack the pirates base until it randomly shows up on the map. Once you do know the secret location you must have a both a massive (expensive) battlefleet and a letter of Marquee allowing you to attack them. Why you need permission to kill non-Marquee Letter holding pirates is a bit of a mystery. That is about as historically accurate as all the white guys who work on your sugar plantations that you pay wages to.

While the game is incredibly deep, it suffers from having ZERO in-game help or tutorials. It took me three full days of playing to realize I could have my warehouses auto-buy goods when they were cheap so that I didn't have to micro manage them. The same is possibly with your trade convoys but I haven't been able to fully figure it out yet. Finding an online guide is a must for full enjoyment.

There are even deeper aspects of the game and economy, but it would take a book to get in to them all. If you are a lover of deep economic sims this game is 100% for you.

A good oldie. The latest Kalypso reboot fails to capture the mix of Pirates! and Anno of the first two Port Royales. Build or conquer. Micromanage or delegate. This should be in every greed-driven adventurer's game library.
