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)
