Excellent, old game. Do not expect contemporary graphics or ui. Despite the drawbacks of old games, Patrician III has aged well, and it's definitely worth $1!

Have been playing this game for a while now. And i can tell, the game is not perfect, but almost. If you're into some supply and demand kind of stuff, this is the best game you could buy. For real, it's an awesome, slow paced, strategic, economical game and you MUST try it, if you like those old school games. I bought it for 0.44€ and it worth al least 3€. You won't regret.

BTW:I'm playing on WIN8.1 and it runs just fine! I don't know what is the problem with these other guys that say this won't run, GO AHEAD! 9.7/10 for what it is.

AAAAAND it's real-time so you can play it while you're on Facebook or whatever.
Go ahead! Set a route, go to your email, see if the ship is already on it's destiny! If not, keep on browsing! You can even change the speed if the game!

You want too be a pirate?! Plunder them all! It has a lot of freedom in what you can do, just give it a time!

Cons:
The graphics (its a game from 2003, following its ansestors).
Not for everyone (if you're a casual gamer, please, go ♥♥♥♥ youself).

Excellent economic-based trading game.

Pros:
-Not only do you run around working the trade system, but you also manufacture, therefore supply your manufacturing facilities with the needed materials.
-Not only do you build extra ships and upgrade them to enlarge your fleet, but you build throughout the towns you trade in; homes manufacturers, warehouses, and more.
-Lead an active roll in the economy; get married, join the guilds, aid or hinder the different classes, compete with the areas other master merchants, defend against pirates, buy or sell in auctions, run for mayor, and much more.
-Take specific jobs; escorting, transporting, and smuggling.
-Turn to the dark side; hire scores of pirates to do your bidding for a fair cut of the treasure, attack other merchants and towns directly.

Cons:
-Has 5 bloody tutorials..... FIVE. And they still leave a lot to be answered.... Needless to say, the game is COMPLICATED. Plan on looking a LOT of things up on youtube and asking the community questions.
-Attacking pirates are ALWAYS more powerfull. You're either out-numbered, out-gunned, outmanned, or all three. VERY frustrating, as the "Flee" option almost never works.

The trade system is top notch, They do a REALLY good job of balancing the economic system. They do a really BAD job of ballancing the combat system. As long as you can avoid fighting, the game is great fun.

I really love this game. I remember it as one of my first games ever, but sadly back then the CD broke. Happy to see it back on steam and if you see it on sale (like it is right now), get it.

No eye candy, this game is about playability. Simply brilliant. Calls for lots of tweaking and micro management, but not in a way a becomes tedious to do so. Just enough to give you the feeling you are doing exactly what is needed. Various levels of play make the game challenging for all levels. I think I will still be playing this in 30 years from now (when no decent successor surfaces). The best of the series, better than earlier AND later versions of Patrician. The best trading game out there to date.

I simply love this game. Its all about micromanaging your business. You need another workshop? Build it but are the people satisfied? No? Then take care of their needs or no one will work for you! Be sure to remember about housing!

Tutorial is one of the drawbacks. It could have been done better. Firstly, you need to stare in the small letters at the bottom of the screen and reading this is quite tiring. Secondly, not all the instructions are clear. Also, there's no control system that would check if a player did the requested action correctly. The tutorial is rather some kind of a guide book rather than a tutorial. Reading it all can take you up to 2 hours. Also, the tutorial doesn't explain everything, so it's wise to try a free game after the tutorial before getting to the campaigns. This will help you to learn the game by trial and error.

Graphics is not so great but it is decent and it reminds me of those games in the nineties. This can be a virtue as well as fault. Depends on what you like. The idea is simple: try to be the best merchant in the world. It turns out not to be so easy as you could have thought at first.

The game is challenging and even you know which city needs what kind of goods, it's still not easy to get rich. The clock is ticking and you need to act fast and with conviction. Learning the game will last a few hours as the tutorial is more about controls than substance of the game. But this can be a good point. One is sure: you need to acquire balance between selling and expanding your real estates.

One of the best naval trade and managing game in my opinion. Sail in to the dangerious waters, fight against pirates, become a mayor of your city... Possibilities are endless.

Perfect way to scratch that "I need to play an economic simulator game" kind of itch. If you don't know that feeling, this game might not be your thing.

Tis an interesting game and fun while being a challenge. It does have a minor issue with the initial loading page but that can be fixed by actually starting a freeform map and then exiting back to the main menu again.

Hi gamers. Sadly I bought this game on the reviews. Unfortunately it does not work with win 8.1 x64. So I can confirm what DJ Ricky D posted. It really is a pity that this is not mentioned in the System Requirements since there are in some cases specific mention in this regard. The intro movies plays just fine but at the options screen everything is an ugly pink and cyan. It also does not support 1920x1080 16:9. So if you run windows 8 stay away.

WARNING TO PEOPLE ON WINDOWS 8:

I followed all the steps on the community forums etc as to how to make this game compatible and make it run and still no luck! Steam is a great gaming service however they really need to crack down on selling broken games and make sure they are compatible with all operating systems.

Id advise you to stay away from this one!

I'm sure its a lovely strategy game but just try and get it running on modern machines. Graphical glitches made the game unplayable. Imagine every 100x100 grouping of pixels flickering in random directiosn for a hint of the headache enducing assault on my eyes. A mouse pointer leaving trails of ghost images of itself until it has clogged the screen. Menues that are invisible until you run the cursor over them. Producing a kind of rubing image that you may be able to interact with if the afformentioned mouse cursor ghost images do not obscure what your are looking at too much. The readme file links unoffical patches for Voodoo graphics cards, so if you're still rocking one of those you may be in luck. Do not waste your money unless you are into the challenge of getting older games to function with modern displays and GPU's. And if you do, let me know how you did it because this does look like a fun strategy game.

I saw some good reviews for this game but even with several attempted fixes and patches I couldn't get it to run on win8.
