Steam Big Picture

Riguardo questo gioco

Siamo ai Caraibi, nell'inquieto 17° secolo. I potenti regni di Spagna, Inghilterra, Francia e Olanda combattono fra loro per il controllo delle colonie. E in questo scenario ti muovi tu, giovane capitano intenzionato ad affermarti come l'uomo più influente del Nuovo Mondo. Per raggiungere quest'ambizioso obiettivo potrai scegliere fra due vie ben distinte, quella dell'avventuriero o quella del mercante. Qual è la strada che fa per te?
Scegliendo la via dell'avventuriero dovrai affrontare una spietata campagna per la conquista dei mari: invasioni, pirateria, cacciatori di taglie, razzie... Tutto sarà lecito, pur di edificare il tuo impero nei Caraibi! Il commercio, ovviamente, giocherà un ruolo minore all'interno di questo scenario.
La via del mercante, al contrario, si basa principalmente sullo sviluppo di ricchezza e potere economico. Per riuscire a diventare il mercante più potente del Nuovo Mondo dovrai stabilire rotte commerciali, realizzare industrie e sviluppare l'economia delle colonie.
Infine, grazie alla modalità di gioco libero, potrai miscelare come meglio credi le caratteristiche delle due vie, creando un’avventura unica ed esaltante.
Per la prima volta nella famosa serie di Port Royale non solcherai da solo i meravigliosi e apparentemente pacifici mari dei Caraibi: fino a 4 giocatori potranno sfidarsi via LAN o tramite Internet, grazie alla modalità multigiocatore. Crea una compagnia commerciale di successo, guida i tuoi vascelli in spettacolari battaglie navali tridimensionali e metti in ginocchio i tuoi avversari!

Caratteristiche principali

  • Due differenti campagne a giocatore singolo: avventuriero e mercante.
  • Battaglie navali, razzie, saccheggi e invasioni lungo la via dell'avventuriero, mentre il mercante aprirà rotte commerciali e farà fiorire l'economia coloniale per raggiungere fama, fortuna e potere.
  • 16 navi diverse, fra i quali imponenti galeoni e versatili fregate.
  • Gestisci il commercio fra oltre 60 città, da Port-au-Prince a Tortuga.
  • Fino a 4 giocatori nell'avvincente modalità multigiocatore.
  • Sistema di commercio realistico, con dinamiche di domanda e offerta alla base dei prezzi delle merci.

7/10

Not as much YAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!! as I'd like, but overall it's not a bad game. Not fast paced, not a bad learning curve, but there are features I'd like to see added if there's a sequel. More Total War style controls for naval battles and possibly a clearer UI for setting up trade routes/trade convoys.

Between this and Sid Meier's Pirates! you ought to be covered.

I really enjoy this game. This game is a big time micromanagement and small time naval combat. It takes a long time to really dig into and one game can last me weeks, give it at least ten hours before you judge it!! The more stuff you build to the more fun it becomes.

The learning curve on this game is not that easy and the tutorials are honestly awful. But once you get a handle on what the game is actually about and what you're supposed to actually be doing, you may enjoy this game.... that is you might enjoy it. The business management part of the game is fairly intricate and grindy. If you're not into intricate and grindy games... you probably will hate this one.

Pretty good game,
First time I played I played for 109 minutes, got 5 achevments and figured out the basics of how to play.

Now, how to get beyond the basics is what I have to work on.

The only reason I set this thing down is because I have to due to this thing called a life.
(Stupid school/work)

I once had to go to a wedding in Canada, so I left my computer on for 6 day's while I was gone. This was in the background, and in that time, I had massed a fortune and everyone recongized me as the soverign power. 8/10 could be better

I liked this game because it is very addicting especially when playing with friends. The only downsides being that online multiplayer isnt always working and there is only one map. Despite this that one map feels different every playthrough

I bought this game and all DLC on sale not having a clue about it. I found it to be a very enjoyable game. I don't think I would ever buy this for the full price. The game play is easy to learn with built in tuts. Free play is very fun, board ships, fire different types of cannon shot, trade, or even make war.

Very hard to start off with little to none tutorial... With a little help from the InterwebZ godz *Cough* all mighty Google, the game picks up rapidly and will leave you addicted to take on the world with your economic might; but be careful out there these shores often have black pirate flags about ye' hear... Or are they your very own feet of ghost pirate ships?
You decide!

A good game if you're into a lot of management. The real-time combat lacks a lot and I wouldn't buy the game if you're looking for ship combat, look on...

Love the game wish the sword fights were better. the graphics are a good step up and the story hasnt really changed from previous games. they adding a trading feature and fleet to be able to add a new element sadly i do not believe it helped i think if anything is hurt. One addition i do like is the manufacture and town updates.

Graphics 6/10
Gameplay7/10
I believe it is ver repeatative game play but each location you attack/visit has to have its own approach.
Graphics are ok but can be "jumpy" at times. i had to turn mine down as i would see through ships that were docked.

I would recommend this purely because it is addictive and the gamplay just pulls me in because it is always different.

Gioco molto carino tendente a sviluppare le abilità di compravendita e della gestione di un patrimonio da parte del giocatore.
Il gameplay è un pò monotono ed alla fine stanca

I got this on sale with all 3 DLC expansion packs for 10.19 during the Black Friday sale. I'm an avid fan of the Port Royale series, and loved Port Royale 2. I was nervous getting this will all the mixed reviews, so it took me well over a year to finally go through with it.

Overall, I thought it was pretty good. For anyone wanting a comparison of this to Port Royale 2, they are very similar in most aspects, with some differences good and bad. First off, trading in port looks very different. There's a slider to select the amount, as well as green and red bars to tell you how over or understocked (and priced) a particular item is. A lot of people hate this new layout, but it's really not that bad if you can get used to it. The town palace now holds both a town administrator and sometimes a governor to hand out distinct missions. This is a bit unbalanced, especially once you advance in rank, as bringing lets say 67 crates of tobacco can get you a hundred thousand dollar bonus. One thing I HATED was the nation's reputation system. It drops way too quickly on it's own, that unless you're constantly doing missions you're going to be stuck at 25. Also, when two nations form an alliance, your reputation between them gets averaged. This is the most frustrating thing when you're trying to take over a town economically and suddenly your 100% reputation gets dropped down to sixty because your mother nation decides to form a treaty. Fortunately, this also means that nations that hate you get bored pretty quick. Still, they can pack quite a nasty punch if you're not prepared. War is also completely different, but in a way I enjoy. Each convoy uses 3 armed ships each battle, and you control all 3. It's a bit tougher to fight and board enemy ships, but now you can't make a fortune capturing and selling Ship of the Lines. There's a really dumbed down system for attacking in the harbors. Most nations will first have anywhere between 3 and 10 military convoys you have to fight through to make it to the harbor, instead of the max of 1 in the previous game. And thank goodness they got rid of those annoying harbor cannons that would completely obliterate your fleet one ship at a time. Instead, you send in your three ships that park, bomb the heck out of a fort, and then unload your soldiers for a land battle. Pirates have no fort, just a gazillion soldiers. Luckily, they are a lot easier to take down this way later on, if not more difficult in the early stages. The last part I really like is that you can take over pre-existing towns forming your own nation (Long live the free people of America!). This can be done either economically (own 75% of a prosperous town, and then go whine to the Viceroy and he'll probably just give it to you). Or you can attack the town and annex it for yourself! If the nation you attacked liked you enough before, they'll let you keep it. Also, there is no more waiting til a nation is weak enough to annex a town.

The only DLCs that seem to do much is Harbor Master. None of the campaigns seem to amount to much compared to the sandbox game. Still, the new buildings are very effective in preventing droughts, outbreaks, pirate attacks, etc. Ship building is pretty cool, if not expensive and time consuming. Still, it's better than having to travel port to port searching for that particular ship you want.

Overall I recommend giving this game a shot. Not sure if it's all worth $30, but if you get it during a good sale I say go for it!

That's one of the best games I've encountered during the last couple of years. Despite starting to play a buggy and unstable release, I really enjoyed it. The gameplay is amazing, in my opinion, and by now all the bugs are gone (as far as I can tell, at least).
The main idea in the game is to either be a pirate and build your own naval empire, or be a trader (my personal preferred choice) and build a huge merchant fleet, and later on gain control over cities.

The game takes place in the Caribbeans, during the European colonization in America. Therefore, you can choose to be either Spanish, English, French or Dutch, but you're not limited to trading just with your country's own colonies. Also, even for people like me, who aren't die-hard fans of "Pirates Of The Caribbeans", it's impossible to miss the connection. :)

The trading mechanism is quite realistic, and is a lot of fun, as you need to start small, trading stuff yourself, until you get rich and famous enough to buy more ships and more goods, so you can buy more ships and build businesses in cities, so you can manufacture goods yourself, which is obviously cheaper than buying them from someone else.

If you're into trading simulation, get this game. You won't be sorry.

The internet claims that this is a mediocre game, and I disagree. In fact I disagree enough to positively recommend this game. Port Royale 3 is a trading and economy simulator with minor RTS elements. It's not a perfect game, of course: boat combat is best left on autopilot, as is most of your trade empire. That said, the challenge lies in learning the somewhat mystifying AI, fanaggling trade routes to suit the needs of the economy, and so on.

If you are an econ nerd like me or simply fall for the simple charm of the story spun around Elena, daughter of the Viceroy of Port Royale, then give this game a try. At its sale price, it's not too shabby.

I would be remiss to not address the Metacritic score of 54 however. Upon review of, uh, these reviews, I have determined that most of Port Royale 3's detractors succumb to puerile "it's not as good as Port Royale 2" grognardism. For better or worse, I never played Port Royale 2 and therefore take this game solely on its own merit. And for what it is, this game has been enjoyable.

A great trading sim and empire building game. I kept a game going until I was ruler of the seas and was pretty much supplying every town on the map! The option to randomize goods produced in cities in freeplay mode game it a little more replayability.

The loading times to load cities was a little annoying.The sea combat is actually pretty bad (I always let them autoresolve). Invasion battles also needed some work too (It would have been great if they handled like the sea and land battles in Sid Meiers Pirates!)

I'd recommend this game if it went on sale, but beyond that it's up to your discretion. If you're buying it for the trading get it, if you're buying it for the combat look elsewhere.

The trading simulation is very good, much better than PR1 or PR2. Auto trade routes are very easy to set up as well, and it's easy to become a millionare fairly quickly on normal. If that puts you off just select "my strategy" and see how that pans out. Having buildings that produce and need various goods adds another aspect to think about. It's a bit difficult to plan without a map listing the resources, but I'm sure they have one online somewhere. In any case, if you hit the middle mouse button over a town in the map view, it'll show you the resources that town produces.

The combat is... terrible. There's really no reason to do anything but auto battles anymore. I remember PR1, where you had massive battles (I think 10v10, it was a long time ago), and here you're stuck with a maximum of 3v3. As far as I can tell, you can't adjust the speed of your ships (or even tell how many knots they're going), and sometimes they randomly switch ammunition from what I selected. And trying to board a ship makes me want to pull out my hair. I had a set of 3 Liners with 250 men apiece lose 4/5 of their health and half the crew against a ship at a virtual standstill with 1 sailor and 3 hp left until they finally managed to board after I held down the spacebar for three minutes and my ships grinded against it for twenty seconds at a time until the boarding icon showed up. This happens nearly every time I attempt to board. And taking control and ramming the enemy ship myself never helps either. It's aggravating, to say the least.

I also remember the challenge and feeling of accomplishment when I annexed a town after expertly manouvering my ships to avoid cannon fire from shore. Now all that happens is you click a ship, click a spot. Click a ship, click a spot. Click a ship, click a spot. Wait for fortress to be destroyed. Repeat for other fortress. Click a spot for a land battle. No more picking formations for your sailors. The lack of challenge and variability is awful.

Other minor things:

The graphics are fairly nice and it's fun to be able to rotate the map, something the first game couldn't do. The "campaigns" were very similar to each other and even had some tutorials on how to do the same stuff. And a tiny gripe is that there weren't a ton of flags to pick from, maybe seven in different colors. Not very fun. It would be cool to have an option to make your own flag. I also think player mods would be great, maybe someone would fix the combat system. And a few achievements seem broken. I've captured several towns but none of the "Veni, Vidi, Vici" ones have popped, and it's impossible to get "Checkmate" as you aren't allowed to annex a town if there are only two left. Frustrating.

I grew up playing Port Royale 2. This game is a huge disappointment compared to that, you don't need to ever trade manually, you can simply start out with a strong trade route on the first day that generates 20k gold each month. If you try to fight pirates, you need to get at least 400k-500k gold to spend on warships to have a chance of defeating the weakest convoys even on the first day they appear.
The campaign maps are horrible, they're just long tutorials (and can be finished within an hour or two).

If you haven't played PR2 and are looking for a trading sim, this game might be good for you, though I'd still recommend trying to get a working version of Port Royale 2 instead.

So, what does the game offer?
Trading around the Caribbean, production differs in each city, prices change with supply and demand.
Possibility to attack convoys and cities to plunder or even capture them.
Missions (get X amount of Y goods in a month, find something on the ocean with some hints and deliver it), treasure maps, random "drops" you might find in the water (and you have to spot it and pick it up because it disappears after some time).
Dynamic wars between the 4 nations, respect with each of them and reputation in every city (modifies possible missions).
Setting up production facilities in cities to create your own goods (which is cheaper than buying them, so more profit).
Events in cities like plague or gold rush, they modify production, life quality, demand for some resources.
Control over multiple fleets (based on rank), each having one or more ships, they can be set on automated traderoutes (very easy to set up a profitable one, once you've done it it's AFK Simulator 2000).
Mutliplayer (haven't tried it, can't say anything about it) - the only thing Port Royale 2 does not have.

A fairly bland pirate/trading game. Adds nothing to the genre that wasn't done just as well 10 years ago.

If you like this kind of game, you'll probably enjoy this. But don't expect anything new.
