This game is utterly fantastic. I have not experienced many of the bugs that others on here report, and have found the game to be very stable. The general difficulty is absurdly easy, I have never had under 100k after about 45 minutes of gameplay, and generally enjoy it when I can control the government with a family member in literally every position. If anyone causes trouble for you, start a trial and then just vote guilty (and since you control the government you have a family member in every jury position).

You can then buy or steal every building in town, burn down your competitors businesses and then rebuild another building in the exact same location, and hire thugs to follow your enemies around. You can poison the cities water well to generate more business for your hospitals, and you can summon demons and spirits to give you gifts. Want your own private army of super powered thugs with full plate armour that can take on the city guards? Easy! Just be the only smithy in town that only sells to your own troops.

If you want an easy game on ANY difficulty, just be in the business of raw materials of any sort, either food or wood or metal.

A buggy medieval simulation with atrocius(ly hilarious) voice acting and goofy concepts, but it's totally worth it. This game is amazingly fun! Scoop it up for cheap and play with friends and laugh for hours and hours while trying to run a tavern, be a blacksmith, and get married and have kids. Best pickup line(with the atrocious voice acting), "You have lovely hair...do you wash it daily?"

I actually like never played this game. I just was AFK on the Main Menu for like a couple of minutes.
Since it being another exact copy of Guild II, I am guessing the game is terrible. Dont buy this game.

Trust me, I only played for 0.3 hours. You can totally trust me.

Also, the reason I bought this game was because there is a hot chick on the cover.

Man I miss those days of playing games like these!. The Guild II - Pirates of the European Seas is essentially Guild 2 but with a bit more improvements applied over it which make it feel a bit fresh. The game is actually pretty good (not the best out there) but certainly among the better of the titles that attempted to emulate this genre!.
There a some certain hilarious bugs (mostly not game breaking though) but hey, it's the Guild 2, those things are what make the game much more fun!.
Highly recommended to kill some time and carve out a dynasty that can stand the test of time :P

If you want an easier version of The Guild 2: Renaissance, then this is the game for you. Yes, it does have less options for customizing yoour character, but no big-e. Just like The Guild 2: Renaissance:
1. Pick a Map.
2. Pick Your Faction...and yes, it still isn't really that clear who's sheild is who's.
3. Pick Your Mission...I believe they are still the same as The Guild 2: Renaissance.
4. Customize Your Character...again, yes, customizing your character has less look wise, but everything else is pretty much the same.
5. Click on Start and You are In The Game.
Usually, I go for The Mission of Becoming Mayor. In this Add-on, you don't have to bribe everyone before the Election starts. You wait until the voting. When the Mayor has called what you've been elected to you have a time slot to Bribe, Compliment, and Begile The Voters to get them to your side. It's very easy to do. No need to be flustered over not being able to do all of these things and not know if you'll be voted-in or not, either because of a. The Person You Bribed Left or b. The Person Descides to Vote for Someone Else.
Overall, Great Game. Even more addicting than some other Medieeval Sims...and you don't feel bad about your Creations.
P.S. There is also a Campgin! :)
Now, I think I'm going to play this some more after I hit the "Post Review" Button.

Do not buy. Many of the included maps have game breaking pathing bugs. I found this game to be LITERALLY unplayable. You're supposed to be building a dynasty that will stand for generations, but within a couple of years the entire city's populace will have clipped through a church wall and become stuck. This bug has gone unpatched for years. Avoid this one like the plague.

Only downside, it tends to crash when i try to save after longer running time. Which can ♥♥♥♥ ones mood very much.

As The Guild II this game contains all that it's predecessor had, with a couple of new additions.

The expansion is worth taking if you buy the entire collection because the only new features are but few a professions and a campaign with a story consisting of 4 missions.
As always The Guild is buggy and there will be glitches and odd graphical artifacts from time to time.

If your only desire is to get a working Guild game in singleplayer and multiplayer as well then I can direct you to Renaissance: http://store.steampowered.com/app/39680/
It has everything from the previous Guild games - the professions from Pirates of the European Seas patches, mods, a more or less active community.
Minus the campaign, you won't miss anything.

Pirates of the european seas is a stand alone expansion for the guild 2, it adds new jobs opportunities for each class, have a hospital with your scholar, raid merchant ships with your rogue, make a living out of fishing with your patron, become a carpenter or miner as a craftman, and more.
The goal in this game is to have a succesful dinasty, earning (buying) titles, having kids, earning a seat in the council, etc.
There's also watch towers you can make to defend your buildings built outside the main city from pirates.
The game is quite satisfying to play, should buy the complete pack to save 10$ and try all 3 versions to see which one you find more to your liking.

A game with a fantastic concept that was very poorly executed, full of bugs and extremely difficult.

The game remains largely unpatched since release for most of the inherent problems.

This is a family dynasty simulator in which you economically grow your family via businesses and diplomatic relations within your townships. You can take office in local parliament, ultimately running the town (this is extremely, extremely difficult to even get close to this). You run business' of various trades, IE a Pub or a Blacksmith, you find a woman to marry, and have children with her, growing your clan and ability to pick up new business through your children (once they are controllable and at apprentice age).

The Guild II has a relatively steep learning curve, and really is a good example of a difficult rts/rpg from early 00's.

The Guild II has a nice consistent fantasy middle age art style and it would be nice to see the game remade in the modern day in working order for its conceptual ideas and simply the fact that nothing really like it has come out since.

Do you like firebombs?
Do you like political assassinations?
Do you like artificially increasing the price of grain so that your inn has the only affordable food in town?
If you said yes to any of these questions, buy it now.

Pirates of the European Seas is a stand-alone expansion pack for The Guild 2 that focuses mostly on piracy, naval trade and combat creating many more options for those that does not want prestige but notoriety.

The expansion adds a lot in terms of dependency between cities and this helps, in some degree, to alleviate the problems the AI have with maintaining production chains by letting the player sail around with ships trading between cities much easier and quicker than before. The piracy features also allow you a lot of new options in the opposite direction as you can now corner markets by denying access to certain raw goods in a specific city.

The developers also took great note of the community feedback and while Pirates of the European Seas is hardly bug free it is a great step forwards from the main game.

Pirates of the European Seas is a good solid expansion to an already entertaining concept and definitely worth a purchase if you liked The Guild II. It does however still suffer from poor AI and a somewhat broken economy.

Amazing game! A lot of depth next to endless play hours. I agree with the negative reviews in saying it has a lot of bugs, because it can at times, but, we're all gamers here so if ANYTHING bugs should be as normal to us as breathing. With that said, I would highly recommend this game, in the end its your choice.

Overwhelmingly "meh". it's pretty fun and a decent timewaster, but it's just so lackluster. It's not adventure and action, but building a business from the ground up in this time period and slowly managing it is pretty fun. It's an alright game and worth it if it's on sale.

Wonderful Sim and RPG. The blend of what and RTS an RPG and The Sims wouldlook like in a living simulated medieval Europe. This will keep you occupied for a LONG time.:)

There is a gigantic world of opportunities and ways to play. Something which is quiet daunting for new players as it can be overwhelming to just start in any particular class or job.
Also, the game is difficult. Very difficult at times.
When a rivalling family has it out for you and you happen to be unprepared there is are few things from stopping them from ending your line before dawn.
The difficulty slider only affects the amount of money and what social position you have in your city, the rest is a flowing, living community at any level.
So, for those who are willing to put some time into it, there is a sea of possibilities to play with and the very nature of the fluency of the world makes it so that every play through will be different.
As a final note: when out of ideas, you should try the ‘Back to the Roots: Sovereign edition’ realism mod, which, apart from a whole spectrum of realism tweaks and additions, adds a bunch of new social interaction options and job paths and the final political goal of becoming the sovereign of your country!
