I remember spending a lot of time on this game back in 2005, didn't even knew it was available on steam and as soon as I saw it I bought it.

After 10 years this is still the better episode of the saga, ambientation and music are fantastic, gameplay is entertaining as usual, and mods are awesome, now i can run this in 16:9 and HD thanks to the guys who shared the modded files on steam.

I still wouldn't reccomend this saga to people who don't like the genre, it's a very specific-targeted game (trading sims aren't the most popular games) and if you don't like the basics the advanced gameplay won't entertain you no more.

For strategic/trading sim fans this is a must have game, if you'd like to get into this saga you definitively should start from this one.

P.S: i'm sad looking at the reviews, most of them are made by people with 20/30 hours (like me atm, i know) which is pretty ridicolous; in this time i can say that i've only ''started'' the first match. In this game matches won't be short, they can take up to 300 hours or more, basically endless so i can't figure out how such kind of people can review a game like this by having played just 30 hours (bruh i've already got like 8 years of gameplay)

If your on windows 8, do ensure that you go to the game directory and select the executable file, set the properties to ensure that the game runs in windows xp mode!

An actual review of the game may come at a later date!!

A superb game. You can play as slow or fast as you want. I definitely recommend it.

One not so minor nuisance is that it has a game crushing bug that can occur once in a while. This occurs only late into the game when you start sending your ship to Europe. I never found the fix

So you are thinking of buying Patrician III, here are the questions you have to ask yourself.

1. Did you play Uncharted Waters on NES or SNES as a child? Did you also play Sim City? Are you German? Do you like business sims? If you answered no to at least 2 of these, Maybe not.

2. Do you like time sinks? Slightly hard learning curves? Micro managment? If you answered no this game probably isn't for you.

3. Do you love building an empire? Fighting pirates? Trading sims? Well it might just be.

If you are even reading this review then you somehow stumbled over this game and it might actually be for you, Patrician III has a steep learning curve but is a great empire building game but it is a time sink the like of which diehard WOW players can be jealous of.

Pros: You are responsible for everything that happens to you. Your empire (or failure to build one) is enirely on your shoulders. It is addictive and engrossing and gives "one more turn" a run for it's money.

Cons: It's a complicated game and actually requires you to learn things (not a con for me but maybe for you). Getting the screen ratio to work on anything past windows 98 requires googling (it works but ♥♥♥♥ if it isn't a pin in the ♥♥♥)

Epilogue: Buy it. With steams new refund policy if you cant find enjoyment within a couple hours it probably isn't the game for you. For the rest of us? We will own the Hanse.

I have given this game a fair shake and I can both recommend it and recomend against it depending on what you want out of this game and whether you've played it's successors (Rise of Venice, Port Royale 2&3, and Patrician 4).

Buy it if you:
Want a complex and engaging trading and business managing game with a fair addition of politics and hands-off town management.
Can overlook a dated interface, unintuitive mechanics and little explanation. (Both a tutorial, manual and Wiki exist tho!)

Avoid (in favor of its successors) if you:
Prefer a more streamlined experience, with quality of life improvements at the cost of less complexity.
Require better graphics (although this is really not the selling point of this series)

In general I was well amused by the game and will surely continue playing, thus I recommend it, albeit only for the more dedicated fans of the genre (niche) and series.
