Costs less than a good meal, lasts longer, and is much more entertaining. Runs well on modern machines and the interface is not very complex. Concurrently satisfies these urges: play a game, own a ship, buy low, sail the seas, sell high, and not file taxes.

Pro: think, click, and amass wealth
Con: does not feed your real children

An all around classic that is as good now as it was on release. Doesn't hold your hand very much so getting it can take work, but the general gist of simple. Early game is trading. This moves onto logistics as you open your own production buildings. Then politicing as you try to become mayor of your own town, then Alderman. Not to mention building your own trading posts, which is always my favourite.

You start out with a ship and some money. Buy some goods, transport them to another town, avoiding pirates, and sell the goods for a profit. Rinse and repeat until you have a trading fleet, then some them on auto-trade to do the work for you. When you have enough cash, you can start building businesses and houses for additional income. You have to really pay attention to trade routes once you have businesses, because they can sink you fast if goods sit in warehouses for too long.

Supply a town with enough goods for long enough, and you can become the Lord Mayor of the town. Do missions for the Hanse, and you can become Alderman, the top position in the game.

Overall Patrician 3 is a great game, especially for the price. Late game is pretty much devoid, once you become Lord Mayor and then Alderman there is nothing to do with those positions. You just call meetings as an Alderman or defend your town from sieges as a Lord Mayor. Cash is only useful for buying ships/goods/buildings, so stockpilling cash at late game is rather pointless. Still, the fun lies in building your trade empire from nothing.

NOTE: This game is currently in a bundle with two other games. I haven't played the other two games, but the bundle is only $3 more and the other game goes for $10, so I would buy that bundle instead of just this game.

Works well on Windows 10 with compatibility mode (Win XP SP 2). Apply this on the executable (steamapps folder) and it should work, for me it did.

I played the game in my childhood and unlike some other games it was instantly fun to play again. The trading aspect is a bit monotonous but this also makes this game easy to play and to get into. Changing prices and finding out where to sell high and buy low makes this game fun. Of course you can adjust the difficulty settings to make things a bit more challanging if you wish to.
Here is basically what you do: Take a ship and sail from harbor to harbot and sell and buy goods by different prices. You can have more ships over time and have to deal with pirates at some point. Prices vary but there are towns with high and low production of each good. Furhtermore you can build warehouse in towns and even production facilities to produce your own goods and make profit with those.

I like that the game offers new challanges and opportunities over time. I think there is even times of war in towns and such special times offer new opportunities for you as a merchant. Basically I wrote this to show that it is playable on Windows 10.

This Game is not compatible with Windows 10. Patrician III will not run using Windows 10. No known patches are in the works. I was very happy to see this game under the STEAM umbrella, then very disappointed when I found, it was not compatible.

UPDATE: I recently played the Steam version of Patrician III on a system, with Windows 8. The play was without any noticble problems and I was very pleased. I do recommend this game for Windows 8.

Ho riscoperto questo gioco dopo anni, rigiocarci è stato emozionante come un tempo.
Il sistema del commercio è ben curato nei minimi dettagli, le varie carriere che si possono intraprendere danno il tocco di classe.
Apprezzo tutto in questo gioco, tranne i video dell'avvistamento del pirata beneke, che tedio!

One of the best games of all time! I'm so glad to have this game again even though it's not in my mother tongue. Nevermind. I'm glad as f**k to be able to play it again on a windows 10 pc.

I used to play so uncountable many hours when I was about 11 years old and I NEVER got bored of the game.

Unfortunately I couldn't simply play it without any troubles so I had to figure out some solutions but none did really work. So I have to play it the oldschool way: in a 4:3 solution because the 16:9 still won't work. -.-

Such a good game from back in the days... I simply love it. Forever! <3

Grand game!

If you want a version that can be made to run better I think the GOG version is more appropriate: 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. Technical support works better.

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

Semplicemente il miglior gestionale che sia mai stato realizzato.
Avevo già giocato a Patrician3,un bel po' di annetti fa quando esistevano ancora i CD confezionati in scatola di cartone e con tanto di manuale di istruzioni e ora dopo così tanto tempo ho subito provato una grande nostalgia e un senso di familiarità.
La grafica è un po' datata,si tratta pur sempre di un gioco del 2003 il cui sviluppo parte già dal'92,ma la gestione delle strutture produttive,amministrative e militari è semplice e intuitiva,i traffici commerciali sono ben realizzati,i filmati gradevoli e musiche suggestive,molte opzioni "politiche" (talvolta anche scorrette) e parecchi modi in cui si può fare carriera,pirateria inclusa.
Anche le funzioni diplomatiche sono numerose e ben realizzate e in genere consentono ampio spazio di manovra.
L'unico aspetto negativo è la carenza di tipologia delle navi disponibili,infatti sono solo tre:Goletta,Caravella e Vascello;mancherebbero navi come le Caracche,Cocche,Brigantini e in genere tutte le navi realmente esistite nel mar Baltico,mare del Nord e Manica del XIV°/XV° Secolo utilizzate dalla Lega Anseatica.
E' inoltre possibile compiere spedizioni commerciali nel Mediterraneo esportando e importando merci che possono essere comprate e vendute a seconda della loro disponibilità,realizzando grandi guadagni.Occhio ai disastri naturali e alle epidemie,agli incendi e agli assedi che il Principe (probabilmente rappresentante il Sacro Romano Impero) a volte sottopone le libere e autonome città della Lega Anseatica.
Infine possiamo sicuramente affermare che questo gioco,pur essendo uno dei più vecchi della serie Patrician,(ci sarebbe anche Patrician 2) è superiore ai suoi successori Patrician4,Port Royale e Rise of Venice,i quali non hanno minimamente il fascino di P3,le sue opzioni di gioco e più in generale la sua impostazione.
A chi interessa il genere,prendetelo e vedrete che non rimarrete delusi!

Senza dubbio, uno dei migliori giochi gestionali. Particolarmente complesso e completo nella parte commerciale, sarebbe stata gradita la presenza di più tipologie di navi. Per quanto concerne la parte dei combattimenti, sarebbe stata gradita qualche miglioria. Magari con qualche mod è possibile amplificare il divertimento. In conclusione, consiglio il gioco solo a chi ha la pazienza e la materia grigia tali da affrontare l'Impero dei Mari!

Il gestionale che è riuscito ad appassionarmi più di tutti, superando Caesar III, Faraoh, Anno 1404: sono arrivato al punto di sognare di notte quali merci vendere nei porti, arruolare altri marinai e corrompere politici alle terme per poter diventare sindaco o... GOVERNATORE DELLA LEGA ANSEATICA!
Un gioco estremamente profondo e dinamico, tuttavia va affrontato a sangue freddo perchè risulta complesso nelle prime partite o comunque nelle prime 20 ore di gioco.

Forse uno tra i giochi su cui ho perso più tempo... Per chi ama la strategia commerciale è il miglior gioco che abbia mai visto.
Non adatto a chi ama l'azione, ma è adattissimo a chi ama le cose ben progettate.
I combattimenti navali fanno schifo, e diventano ingiocabili quando ci sono intere flotte a confronto.
L'unico gioco che, in parte, può avvicinarsi allo spessore tattico-amministrativo di Patrician, è la serie X3, sicuramente inferiore in quel senso, ma che aggiunge anche un po' di azione con battaglie aerospaziali.

I LOVE THIS GAME.

1739 hours played so far, loved every minute of it- and I only have 2 saved games- that is how much of a marathon this game is. Brilliant and simple in its design, you are tasked with allocating resources to make people happy. I love the visuals (the townsfolk particularly) and the ship battles, to name only a few aspects of this gem of a game. If you like civilization/city building games, this one is probably for you. There are always tons of side missions to do that you can pick up at the taverns and there is a ton of useful automation in the game (auto trading ftw). One of my favorite games of all time, so glad I picked it up for a few bucks. Watching the effect your efforts have on the landscape (cities, populations, developments) is very rewarding. LOVE THIS GAME!

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.

Before buying this game you need to ask yourself what kind of gamer are you. If you're the kind who likes hours of tedious building and trading than this is a good game for you. If you like heart pumping action and need your games to excite and amaze you then this game is not for you. The beauty of Patrician 3 is in it's long term gameplay which has you slowly work your way from a humble trading shopkeeper to a master merchant. It does this through good AI, an excellent economic model, brilliant pacing, and diverse challenges. It's a game that know what it wants to do and does it better than most other economic simulation.

If you like business management types of games of the likes of the old Koei games such as Uncharted Waters/New Horizons, this game might be right up your alley. Action game fans... probably should look elsewhere.

Unlike Uncharted Waters, you control a whole company, safely ensconced in your corporate headquarters, while directing whole fleets of ships to run trade routes. Once you build up a set routine route, you can even just automate the route, so that the ship sails between up to around a dozen ports buying and selling the same things over and over for a profit.

The best aspect of the game, however, is how much of a subtle, but ever-growing impact you have on the world with your actions. The more you trade with a city, the more it prospers economically, the more its population rises, the more it has to trade, but the more it needs to trade to get products it doesn't manufacture, itself. Then, you can outright build a branch office in a city, build up your own personal industries, and outright control the whole city.

It's dirt cheap at sale prices, and if you have any interest in the genre at all, it's worth looking into before going into more pricey, more modern versions of the same game.

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 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)

Having been a huge fan of Patrician III, I decided to buy a digital copy for 1 €. The graphic is still decent, compared to other titles from the same period. The gameplay is good if you have patience, otherwise it could be a bit boring.
All in all I recommend it.
