If you've read my Port Royale 2 review, this one is going to look very familiar. The Patrician series is quite a bit older, actually, with this installment originally appearing in 2000 whereas the original Port Royale appeared in 2003. While both allow you to tool around the high seas and peddle your wares at exotic ports of call, Patrician goes quite a bit deeper into the social aspect, allowing you to grow far beyond your starting station as a simple merchant.

Your mercantile adventures will take you all over the 14th century Hanseatic League (which was around northern Europe and the Baltic Sea, for the historically impaired), to ports from London to Oslo. Travel takes place on a static map, from which you can move to detailed towns presented in a charming, isometric 2D view. At the harbors you can buy and sell goods to make your bones, but there are also tons of buildings in towns with various options. You can hire crew and meet informants in the taverns, check local politics and take contracts at the town hall, pray and donate money at the church, and even treat yourself to a nice bath at the bathhouse.

The meat of the game, at least early on, is the trading and it isn't as simple as it looks. Each town produces certain goods and consumes all of them at a rate determined by the population and industries present, so it's important to know the makeup of each one you want to do business in. Prices are also based on supply and demand so you can't just run beer from the beer town to the drunk town because they won't have drunk it all by the time you make your second trip. It'll take some time to learn who needs what where, but if you're invested in the game you'll be making the big money in no time.

Once you've got a grip on trading and started to expand your operations, that's where the game opens up in a way Port Royale does not. You have a reputation in each town that's dependent on your trading and actions, but also on how you choose to support the town. It goes deeper than just building your own workshops and houses, because you can invest in the local economy, make donations and throw festivals, and eventually become part of the town leadership. Being elected mayor of a town opens up a whole new set of options regarding military forces and infrastructure, which is a compelling long-term goal to add onto such an open-ended game.

It may be a deeper game than most trading sims, but that also adds to the complexity and Patrician does not handle that aspect very well. A lot of key factors like your reputation with a town are hidden from you, conveyed only in vague qualitative terms. It can also be hard to understand some of the unique tasks you can take on. I agreed to marry and was instructed to stock my warehouse for the wedding festivities, but nowhere did it explain what goods I needed for the celebration. Some events can also cause you major setbacks if they affect your standing in important towns.

All of these elements combine to give Patrician a steeper learning curve than most sims, though it's an understandable price to pay for the additional complexity. It's a game that you have to commit to learning and making mistakes in a way that Port Royale is not, but the potential payoff is a lot greater. The presentation only helps draw you in, with lovingly rendered towns and citizens and a pleasant, understated audio setup. In the end I might be more of a Caribbean man, but I can't deny that Patrician III is the deeper game, taking its trading game to impressive lengths.

This game is utterly amazing.


IMPORTANT: The main thing you need to do after buying it, is to make it run under Windows 10. There are ways. I personally recommend this: https://steamcommunity.com/app/33570/discussions/0/35221584425332491/

There are not many games so enjoyable even 16 years after release. I am still coming back to this game every few years and spend 30 to 100 hours.

What is so special about Patrician 3? It was made by a German developer with GREAT care and a lot of love paid to details. It has nice 2D graphics, good sound effects and amazing gameplay.

There is a well-simulated economy and a huge variety of activities to immerse oneself into. A feast for the mind. If you know how good it feels to excercise your mind, you will fall in love with this game.

This games teaches you that if you care about people and make them happy, you can rise in society. You can also rise if you care about your town and improve it. You can also rise if you outsmart your competition and expand your company. You can also rise if you are a crap of a person but know which strings to pull and how to manipulate the public opinion. Just like in real life.

None of your actions here remain unnoticed. Reputation is the key.

The "dark side" is also possible. Get ready for pirating, bribes and brutal politics.

You will like this game if you like developing things and making something better.

Patrician 3 is so rewarding and so well-made that I would recommend it to anyone, who likes economic simulators, ships, business development and products made with a lot of love and care.

P.S.: Every time you return to game (i.e. load), make sure you take a bath and pray at the church. You are welcome.

Played this game for 10 plus year's. My all time favorite. Steam crashes to much for me, but it could only be that I'm on Windows 10. It takes forever to get the drivers and settings to play on w10. Still the best game I know of. Would love to have a 8 member p3 game club. Play every week same time 2-3 hours. All trying to be alderman. Who can have the most private towns. I think 3 can be started. Mayor in 1, and be permanently owner of 3 others.

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

Es una version reducida en funcionalidades de este super clásico sólo hay que poner modo de compatibilidad desde Windows 7 en adelante y corre perfecto. Excelente juego, ninguno de sus sucesores pudieron superarlo.

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.

El juego en si es una joya, pero comprarlo por steam es un asco.

1. No esta en español (Aunque hay una traduccion en el foro te toca ponerla manual)
2. Muchos errores que no te permiten jugar apropiadamente, se cae, el interfaz en algunos lugares esta dañado (Almenos en win 8)
3. No tienes acceso a los path o actualizaciones.
4. Me volvi a comprar el juego en FX, en una promocion que estaba a 0.95 Euros. Y encima mas barato :S.
5. Deberian sacarlo de la tienda, si almenos no tiene un minimo para jugarse, es una estafa completa.

Patrician III

Es un juego de estrategia centrado en la gestion y el comercio naval. El juego toma como transfondo el mar del norte de Europa (Baltico), durante el siglo XIV y el apogeo de la Liga Hanseatica.

El juego ofrece 7 campañas contando el tutorial, mas un modo libre y un multijugador. Del tutorial resaltar que puede ser incomodo pero bastante completo (en la practica es leer y poco mas). Las campañas son variadas y divertidas, con mas obstaculos que una partida "libre". El multijugador estaba basado en un sistema de turnos.

En el modo libre se empieza configurando las caracteristicas de la partida para posteriormente elegir una ciudad base de las disponibles.
El juego se desarrollara en dos vistas: el mapa del mar baltico y la ciudad en la que uno se encuentre.
Cada ciudad tiene un tamaño determinado y una produccion concreta. Las 20 mercancias se dividen en: materias primas, alimentos, bienes de consumo y de lujo. Las ciudades estan todas interconectadas por lo que dependen unas de otras.
Todas ellas disponen de una serie de edificios basicos con los que interactuar para conocer la produccion, comprar/vender , buscar misiones o crear/equipar tu flota etc. Ademas se nos ofrece la posibilidad de construir nuestro propios talleres o equipar a la ciudad.

A pesar de que el comercio es el pilar fundamental se da la posibilidad de piratear o aceptar misiones de escolta, buscar tesoros, etc... lo que le da muchisima diversidad

El juego clasifica al jugador en un estamento social (mercader, patricio, alcade, gobernador, etc) teniendo que lograr ciertos logros y grados de reputacion para alcanzar el siguiente. Con cada subida de peldaño el juego ofrece mas opciones (control de las arcas de la ciudad en el caso del alcalde o incluso poder fundar la tuya propia para ser gobernador).

Lo que convierte este juego en una maravilla sobre la gestion de negocios es la organizacion. La interfaz es muy clara y ordenada, todo queda perfectamente remarcado y el jugador no se ve saturado. Esto es especialmente brilante cuando uno se encuentra en el metagame y el jugador no da abasto para gestionar el imperio, el juego facilita herramientas para automatizar parte de las operaciones y simplificar el control.
Esto sumado a una escalada de dificultad muy logica y medida que obliga a gestionar cada vez con mejor precision convierten al Patrician III en uno de los mejores del genero.

Hay un momento especial durante el juego que son las batallas navales, que son totalmente opcionales. No tienen mucha complicacion y casi estan a nivel de minijuego.

Un punto que me encanta es el hecho de que no puedes pausar el juego, solo puedes modificar la velocidad a la que pasan los dias por lo que los negocios siempre estan en marcha y se debe estar atento.

Graficamente es perfecto, usando una vista isometrica de 2D donde todo queda detallado. El acabado es agradable a la vista y las pocas animaciones cumplen perfectamente.
El sonido es correcto y poco mas, nada resaltable. No molesta y se agradece

Conclusion:
De los mejores titulos de estrategia comercial de las ultimas decadas. Ofrece mucha variedad de opciones sin atosigar al usuario. Tienes horas y horas de juego hasta que te canses, y en el caso de dejarlo de lado no te costara nada volver a engancharte.

En realidad el mayor problema que tiene la version de Steam son los lios de licencias. En este caso no solo no disponemos del juego en Castellano (existe una traduccion en los foros) sino que ademas es una version anterior sin posibilidad de aplicar parches, con lo que perderemos algunos arreglos menores y la posibilidad de jugar el online con los usuarios que tengan el original.

Es un juego de comercio en el que te pasas los 5 primeros minutos aprendiendo y las siguientes 30 horas disfrutando un vicio insano, lo que principalmente ofrece es la compra venta al por menor, que tu debes expandir para poder comprar y vender a expuertas, llegando a ganar cientos de veces lo que ganabas en un principio, aunque probablemente se necesiten tutoriales para comprender todos los conceptos.

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!
