Über dieses Spiel

Seit Jahrhunderten wurde Europa von der Kirche und dem Adelsstand dominiert. Die Diener Gottes und die adligen Familien hielten ihre Macht und den Reichtum auf Kosten des gemeinen Volkes für gerechtfertigt. Es war die unwiderlegbare göttliche Weltordnung in einer wahrlich dunklen Zeit…

Aber im 14. Jahrhundert fängt die bisherige Weltordnung plötzlich zu schwanken an. Dank des Handelsverkehrs gelangt eine wachsende Mittelklasse zu immer mehr Macht und Reichtum. Ganze Städte erkaufen sich ihre Freiheit und Sonderrechte von der Adelsschicht. Lesen und Schreiben ist durch die Erfindung des Buchdrucks nicht mehr exklusiv für den Adel und den Klerus verfügbar. Dies ist der Beginn der Renaissance...

Nach mehr als 50h Spielzeit erlaube ich mir ein kleines Review.

Eine sehr gelungende Wirtschaftssimulation mit Politischen Möglichkeiten und einen Hauch von RPG.

Die einzelnen Berufsfelder bieten viele verschiedene Arten um an Geld zukommen, den darum geht es! Wer kein Geld hat geht hier schnell unter.. die Produktion kommt nach und nach zum erliegen.. Personal muss abgebaut werden.. Ärger mit Gaunern, Gesetz oder hohen Politikern die euch nicht sehr gesonnen sind. Sobald das gemeistert wurde kann man sich auf die Politik konzentrieren. Das kann ziemlich knifflig werden wen ihr nicht das nötige kleingeld mitbringt. Habt ihr erstmal ein Vorteilhaftes Amt erhalten könnt ihr eure Konkurrenz übel zurichten und euch den Weg freimachen um weiter aufzusteigen.

Doch Vorsicht ! Je nach euren Einstellungen seit ihr nicht alleine. Den andere Dynastin/Familien wollen euch scheitern sehen und je nach Spielmodus können diese auch sehr gut austeilen. Ihr könnt unter anderem damit rechnen vor Gericht gezogen zu werden, gezielte angegriffe, Entführung & Erpressung oder euch den Folterknecht auf dem Hals hetzen. Also immer am Ball bleiben !

Doch es ist nicht alles Gold was glänzt. Der RPG Teil kommt sehr knapp und spielt sich eher wie eine kleine Nebenrolle. Die verschiedenen Skills können euch hier und da ein paar Bonis bringen vor dem hohen Gericht, im Kampf selber oder euch einfach ein bisschen schneller bewegen zu lassen. Im großen und ganzem haben allerdings nur einige wenige Skills besonders effektive Auswirkungen wie z.B. Kampfkunst.

+ hübsche Grafik
+ viele Möglichkeiten in allen Bereichen

- für RPG Fans wenig zu bieten
- Kann auf längerem Zeitraum "langweilig" werden (Einzelspieler)

Ich hoffe euch mit meinen Review einen kleinen Einblick in das Spiel verschaffen zu können und euch etwas bei eurer Kaufendscheidung geholfen zu haben. Für mich ein "must have" Titel bei jedem der was für Wirtschaftsspiele übrig hat.

Alles in allem - ein gelungenes PC Spiel. Aber nur bedingt Empfehlenswert! Negativ ist, das auf Karten ohne Fisch (Lachs und Hering), keine Warenlieferungen mit Fisch, durch die Gilde vorhanden sind. Das muss unbedingt nachgebessert werden! Einige Waren sind ohne Fisch nämlich nicht zu produzieren. Und es gibt ein Speicherproblem: Das PC Spiel stürzt öfter mal beim automatischen Speichern ab, speichert Spielstände falsch ab und Spielstände verschwinden. (Stand vom 13. Februar 2015)

Mein Tipp: Mittlere Maustaste ist: Kamera drehen.

It's December 22, 2014 and a patch just got released for this 4.5 year old game. Whomever these guys are that bought this license are serious about cleaning it up, but the thing is it was already a great title to begin with. Yeah there were some translation problems, and ai issues, and general problems like that, but it wasn't terrible.

Anyways, this game is just great. You play some male or female person set in old timey overseas land (you get to choose the map to play on), and try to stary a dynasty. You find a spouse, make some kids, and play through the generations. Jobs include stuff from politics, farming, to robbing people. You can make buildings like inns, pubs, churches, and so on or eleminate competing dynasties and take over their buildings through violence or cash. You can select your own stats on the dude or chick you're creating and level up skills through actions, so some rpg elements exist.

You got some trading elements in here as well. Own a mine? Send a caravan of ore to the neighboring village to sell, or import the stuff to make your own jewelry factory. Or make armor and weapons and attack villagers with your bandits. You got a lot of options here on what to do as far as playstyle is concerned. It's a sandbox, but you can't just plop buildings down everywhere. Still there's a lot of options to be found and fun to be had by picking this up and giving it a shot. It can be a little daunting to get into, but I ended up having a lot of fun with this and The Guild II. Well mainly vanilla Guild II, but this is just that with more stuff, so if you can decide which version to get, this is the one to grab.

Holy Smokes. What a seriously innovative and refreshing game design. This is a serious sandbox game. And I mean GAME. Sometimes sandbox games fall in the trap of having a lackluster or tacked on set of objectives. This game brilliantly balances a free-form open style with a true game-objective win/lose strategy. "Eliminate your competitors" - in near anyway you choose (before they eliminate you). Granted the lack of tutorial/psudo-random tip popups to help you figure your way though this almost overwhelmingly unique game play style is a rather large barrier to entry - but once it all clicks in (See: YouTube), this game is fulfilling and addictive.

Buy a fisherman dock, fishmonger your way to riches and aristocracy, marry a young local, wander the back alley alone on a cold winter night, get attacked and poisoned by a paid thug care-of your vilest of competitors, take on the role of your young son - a devious silver spooned rogue - and enact a bloody revenge on the murder of your former fish monger self. It is epic.

If you like sandbox games this wil easily occuppy your time for at 80-100 hours. The game is a little buggy but certainly playable. The LAN option for playing is alot of fun too. It is an older game and the graphics and AI are not the most up to date.
9/10 stars
1. Very complex sandbox game that can be played endlessly
2. LAN very fun and more stable with latest update
3. Stll some bugs.
4. Def worth buying
Added an extra star after the game got updated again! the bugs for LAN playing with friends are greatly reduced! As well as some of the single player bugs!

This is one of the best games I have ever played in my life, and at the same time one of the worst. How? Bugs. I am recommending this game now because it has, miraculously, been granted a new patch (which you have to set the game to beta to get through Steam, fyi) which I am hearing good things about.

The old bugs, which may still exist -- I'm not sure yet -- were as follows:
#1 - Multiplayer NEVER worked. Even if you connected through Hamachi (the only way to get multiplayer to even connect) the game would desync after 20 ish minutes and your saves would be corrupted so you couldn't even reload and continue. This game is so amazing for multiplayer and this is just a big kick in the gaming nuts.

#2 - There are a lot of smaller game breaking bugs...too numerous to mention. I can give some examples. One time, nobody ever seemed to progress in the political field. Sometimes your characters get jammed and won't move. Sometimes you save the game and it gets corrupted and you lose everything. Just weird things that should work just...don't...and it's hard to predict and once it happens you can't just 'reload' to get around it. That being said, I have played through games that were 8+ hours long before getting screwed by one of these bugs (provided you are playing in single player).

But this game is fantastic if these bugs are fixed.

For one, this game is a mish mash of a bunch of different games. In this game you control your 'family' starting with one guy. It's very RPGish in the sense that each of your family members can level up and apply points to various skills. You can make them better at combat, better at working, better at politicking, etc.

You can get married, have babies, and then once they grow up you can control them and expand your dynasty. The buildings you own get transfered down the generations so your hard work with your first guy isn't lost when he dies of old age (or disease, or murder, or getting thrown in jail forever).

There are different sized maps but generally a map consits of one to three cities of various size. Each city has their own town hall with their own political arena. You can get elected and then move up towards mayor -- each office you can be elected into has different special powers that can be used to improve your family, or hurt others that are in your way. For example, you can banish someone from a city, or throw them in jail, or cause them to lose one of their buildings, etc.

There is a court house and 'law' as well. If you witness someone comitting a crime you gain the ability to testify in court with evidence against them. If you don't like them, you can charge them with a crime and then try to beat them in court. While you can sway the courts with your political favours, the more evidence against you makes this harder so blatently breaking the law or fighting people in town is going to brand you an outlaw and probably killed by the guards or thrown in jail if you comply.

There are four major classes and as you marry and have kids you can train them into different classes so that EVENTUALLY you can access every type of building in the game -- but basically, your character(s) each get to be trained in one of the four classes. One is a kind of farmer, one is a scholar that can get hospitals and such, one is a blacksmith type character that can make weapons and tools, and one is a thief that can create thieves guilds and other buildings that set up traps to rob people transporting goods.

The game also has a free market and prices rise and fall depending on how much of what is being sold. In fact, if one item is sold a lot in one of the cities and not in the other, you can make money by transporting from one city to the other -- provided you have enough muscle to protect your cargo from any thieves setting up on the roads.

Your houses can train guards which you can use as personal muscle, even to overpower actual city guards, or to plot assasination attempts on powerful members of opposing dynasties.

The controls can be a little confusing -- there's a lot of menus you have to learn to use to be able to quickly identify who is who in the city -- but it can all be done.

When you do build up your financial empire, you typically want to build one of every building and supply your buildings with your own productions. You'll get a mine, and refine the ore for your blacksmith who will make the weapons to sell or use, etc.

Some routes are a lot easier to start with than others. I recall that being a farmer won't make you rich, but it's pretty easy to make money with cows. Blacksmiths are very useful but they're hard to make enough money from early on.

And I was never good with thieves, but they can be very powerful later on by preventing other players from trading and leaving all the profit to your dynasty only.

The game is very deep and for that reason you can get lost playing this game for days. In all honesty, if this game had fixed all of its bugs I would have ranked it one of the best games I've ever played.

I am hopeful that this patch has fixed a lot of the bugs and if that's so, I'll probably leave this recommendation as positive. Otherwise, I'll probably remove it or make it negative. Stay tuned!

This is a fantastic sandbox game and really unique.

Great Game! But do NOT listen to the Negatives, the game is now fixed! :D Anyways, It makes you have to work in order to get cash, or steal, but that's mostly for rouges. Character Customization is GREAT! Graphics are great, If you think that the graphics are bad, I had to get an ENTIRELY NEW Graphics card for this game to be on highest setting. Not many Cons, but there are a few minor ones. So 9.7/10

Started as a rogue and proceeded to create a crime family built on pickpockets and gambling.

Day 2 got accused of crimes so I killed the person accusing me so court got canceled, thus initiating a feud between our dynasties forever.

Kept being brought to court by that family so I kept killing the accuser/paying off the court.
Decided to get married and gave a kid at 60 after my first family went missing and I didn't pay the kidnappers their money.

2nd Generation

Put dad on the streets to pickpocket and earn his keep.
That other stupid family keeps trying to arrest me so I have them killed. Defintion of insantity much? Whatever.

So seems that family is in the government and can control the guards now, crap. Should have done that myself.. Oh well have close to 50 thieves/mercenaries anyways.

Got convicted and sentenced to death even with paying off court, seems the other family was in charge of the courts too, maybe I should have paid more attention.
Decided to not go down without a fight and brought all my men to the townhall and waited for trial to be over. As everyone exited I unleashed my small army triggering all the town guards to come running to aid of their masters.

The whole of government is dead, with them the entire guard, the entire other family, my main male character and wife and only left with 2 thieves and an orphaned child who hasn't even gone to school yet.

11/10 would become a crime family again and destroy town just because other family is a pile of ♥♥♥♥♥♥s.

This game is like heroin (Be it I haven't tried heroin).

I've played this game for probably 1 or 2 hundred hours off steam and found out to my amazement, that they they patched it?!! So what did I do, Myself and 10 friends bought this game and it was patched ready to go.

This patch they have brought out is fantastic, It fixes so many problems that the game had before. Out of Sync issues are more of a rarity, we can freely play with 5 friends quite easily and if an out of sync issue happens we just role back to the morning at 1:00am. This happens maybe once every 15-20 4 year turns? Each turn can last about 10-15 minutes, so yhou can easily get hours in before it even happens.

I really recommend this game to people that love Simulation/Strategy/Tycoon games, It's all the above and it ticks all the boxes. This is how games should be made these days, They need the risk and a good formula. I really hope that the new The Guild 3 which has been announced will be just as good but with little to no bugs, if they get this right, they'll have a massive hit on their hands.

Well done.

(version 4.20 Review)

Honestly, I tried really hard to have fun with this game. 11 to 12 hours of solid gameplay, 2 hours of learning form videos about this game on youtube, cause I was thinking: "there must be something I'm missing here. Either I just don't know about all the mechanics, or I'm doing something wrong, or both...". But no, none of that was the case. The problem with this game is that it is just plain broken. Out of all the mechanics in the game that are at the player's disposel, only 1 actually works (if only clumsilly).

The impression I get from this game as far as what the dev's envisioned is bassically Crusader Kings turned Sims. Or even think of this game like this: turn House of Cards into a PC game, and set it in the medieval/renaissance era. Which, when hashed out on paper, sounds great and I think there's actually a need for a game like that in the PC market. Unfortunately, The execution on this game is just not there.

The only mechanic that actually works 100% of the time in this game is the charchter's ability to make money, but making money in this game is not fun. it's a mindless 'Point & Click' chore. Every other mechanic is just down right broken.

Want one of your character's to rob someone? Tough, cause it's broken. I actually took the time to find every single chacter on the map I was playing on (and I mean EVERYONE) and tried to rob them with both my main character and my "henchmen", and the game would not allow me to attempt to rob anyone. So then I thought: "ok, maybe it's the buildings that I'm supposed to rob". Tried to rob everysingle building on the map, and again, no dice. So why even have it in the game if it's broken?!?

Want to bribe the Mayor to ellect you into office? Don't bother, because every other applicant will bribe him for the exact same amount you do, which essentially nullifies all the bribes given by everyone because he ends up equally favouring everyone. In one particualr ellection, I decided to show up to the council meeteing early so that I could bribe him right there in the council hall before the voting started. I then watched hillariously as every single npc in the council hall handed him a sack of money. I was like number 8 in line with my bribe. Needless to say, I wasted my money and so did the npc's.

Want to Sabbotage a business owend by a competing faction? Tough nuts, because Sabbotaging a building doesn't have any effect on the business' abilty to function what so ever. Because you have to sabbotage it multiple times and there's a 7 hour cool down period on the sabbotage ability (in-game time of course), and by the time you've bombed the business enough for it to actually have an effect, someone's just going to lay charges against you and throw your bung-hole in jail. Sure, you can pull off 1 or 2 sabbotages with out having too much incriminating evidence floating around, but it takes more than that, so you will get caught. So therefore, pointless.

I'm not even scratching the surface here. There are sooooooo many broken mechanics that I do not have the time or the patients to list them all here.

I bought this game on sale for under 3 bucks, and I feel very lucky that I didn't spend any more then that. And please, don't buy into the youtube videos that supposedly show you how this game works and then claim its a "good game"....In fact, now that I think back, every video I watched never contained a single second of mid-game or even late-game play time. And that makes alot of sense, because this game is 'deceptivley' broken:

In the first 2 hours of the first playthrough, you might feel proud that you've started a thriving business, gotten married and had kids to carry on your "Dynasty", and bought your familly a higher "Title", and that will give you the illusion that this game is "Fun". But then when you try to make use of all the game mechanics provided for you in order to progress further than that (i.e. get ellected in to office, hostel take-over of competing dynasty's buildings, bribery and blackmail, etc...), you'll slowly find that those game mechanics just do not work at all. And its sad. because the idea behind this game is so great. Motives for this game were great; method's in making this game were crack-♥♥♥. There are early access games that are more pollished than this game, and bare in mind, this game is on it's 4th itteration already...

So no, I can not, in good clean conciense, recommend this game, even if it were free, let allone 80% off. Sorry dev's, but you bought a really bad, sour apple here. Rumor has it there will be a "Guilds 3", and I really hope they're just that: Rumours....

Brilliant little gem of a game. A mix between Sims Medieval and the Crusdaer Kings games. It can be a bit glitchy at times, but is definitely worth being patient with this for the sake of excellent gameplay.
