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.

It's not a simple game to get into. I rememember when I first bought it in 2004 and I couldn't play it because it was too difficult (I was 10 at the time), I re-bought the game a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed it! Very funny, addicting gameplay.
I don't recommend it to people who want a simple game and want simple mechanics in a game.
8.5/10

In my third year of university and finding myself taking several accounting classes. Due to this excessive exposure to balance sheets and ratios I find a perverse need to accrue profits: by any means necessary.

So, whip out a notebook. Get a highlighter, a quill and some ink. Perhaps make some candles. Then light them, because you are about to embark on a deep dive into medieval trade federations and in this darkness you will need all the light you can get.

This game needs calculations, more guides would be nice. If you are not smart with expansion and diversification you will find yourself doing a lot of needless port grinding. However, if you can record the proper sales prices/buying prices, recruit a captian, and send convoys out abroad.. you may be on to something.

I love everything about this game. The AoEII graphics, the polish (Whaaat? polish? you must be crazy) No, for reals. The attention to detail is very nice: in game oddities like marriage, hiring pirates, and borrowing/loaning money for negotiable interest can make or break your game in the best way. These types of additions allow you to pursue the main campaign quest (becoming Patrician) in unorthodox ways.

Loaned money? "The guy can't make ends meet." Seize his assets. "Whats he got?" Loads of Wood. "♥♥♥♥" Build fleet of Snaikka and sell it to pirates. Get all the booty.

Continuely refine trading routes and expand until you have too much money, build fleets and bribe princes. Pillage ports. Make more money, build more fleets. Invade mediterranean sea.

11/10 would watch for police while hiring pirates again. (they can catch you bro.)

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.

Grand game!

If you want it to work with no problems I highly recommend the GOG version found here: http://www.gog.com/game/patrician_3

They fix every compatibility issue that may arise and thanks to GOG Galaxy the same services as Steam are offered, as good as it gets for old games.

Additionally a similar and really good game - Port Royale, the first one is also on GOG:
