I really do love this game, the way you have to budget your money and buy more ships to trade more goods over time to make more money and eventually conquer India. The Politics between Companies is interesting along with dealing with pirates. Pirate hunting can be costly but the rewards are great, and be careful what you do as far as conquering India, because monopolizing one recourse can cause other companies to join forces against you. The ship to ship combat is fun, with the abilities experienced Admirals gain over time and the different kinds of ships. I like how buying Marines actually helps in combat is they fire muskets at other ships and are extremely useful during a boarding. A gem of a game for anyone who likes RTS Naval combat, and the direct control you can take of a single ship is very interesting and well done as well. All and all, a great game that for the $10 Dollars is well worth it. Although, I do advise paying the $15 dollars to get it with all the DLC as well. The pirate DLC is a blast, and Privateering as very mission based which is interesting as well, and the battle of the Trafalgar is a great challenge for all who think themselves up to it. It does have some issues as it is a bit old, but downloading some older software for drivers fixes this in under 10 minutes, and is worth the trouble, but is a drawback, for that I give this game a 7.5 - 8/10. Fantastic.

If you like strategy games and sailing this is the game for you. Features fun aracade style ship battles. Its alot more than a birds eye view game. Battling reminds me of Assasins Creed Black Flag. Also features fun trading system.

I am having a lot of fun with this game. If you enjoy strategy and some challenge it is a great game. A few small issues with sound which isn't a big deal, the tutorial/voice isn't very loud and you have to adjust the volume a bit. Other than that I highly recommend this game for it's price. Bought it on sale and even if I paid the $9.99 I would feel it was worth it. The ship battles are fun and you can grow your fleet by capturing other vessels or sell the cargo if any and the ships you capture if you choose. A little bit of getting used to the user interface, but with the option to play with tips on or off is a big help. Really good game.

Lots of seafaring fun with all of it's parts. Like a lot of games it can be exasperating at times especially when your maxed out fleet loses to a wimpy faction. Not a whole lot of differences no matter what level you play at except on Easy you don't have to worry that a port won't buy your cargo or that your homeport won't like any of their cargo.

There are 2 methods of combat. You can control all your ships in a high resolution graphic war or use Autoresolve that determines the winner. At first I used the graphic option but found that controling 5 warships was a problem, especially since more often than not your surrounded by islands that will rip ships apart and the ships are not capable of sharp turns. The enemy of course is on the seaward side of the islands. Additionally your ships will not fire near as often as the enemy. If you put all the ships on auto except the flagship they will run right into an island and sink.

The skill your Captains receive for destroying enemy ships are pretty much useless. They can still be womped by a wimpy enemy and they will sooner or later.

The Galleon is a bit over rated in the game. It is a slow clumbersome ship more suited for cargo but the game lists it as a war ship. Back in those days a Scooner captained by an experienced captain could defeat one. The trick was to sail around behind them and hit them from behind. Another trick was to watch for the flash of the Galleon's cannon. Unlike shells of today it took a while for the cannon balls to reach you. You knew that the Galleon would be leading his target so a quick turn to the port or starboard would cause a miss. You didn't want to get hit by them even once!

When the Frigate came out most nations switched to it because it was faster and more manuverable that a Galleon.

Enuf of the history lesson, lol. It's a fun game if you like strategy sea wars.

Don't believe all the negative hype about this game. While the game does increase in difficulty rather sharply (What Paradox Interactive game doesn't...?), It's a solid trade sim. The diplomacy system is well fleshed out and the tactics one must employ to slow the devlopment of an opponents growth are fresh and varied. I don't know why everyone complains of save corruption or freezing... In 10 hours of play, I haven't experienced the slightest graphics issue. However, I can see the ship battles dropping Framerate for lesser computers.

All in all, not a bad game.

8/10
