Σχετικά με αυτό το παιχνίδι

For centuries Europe has been dominated by the church and nobility. On the shoulders of ordinary people the servants of god and the noble families justified their power and wealth. This was the incontrovertible, divine world order. A truly dark era…

In the 14th Century the world order is beginning to transform itself. Due to trade and commerce an increasing middle class obtains more and more power and wealth. Entire towns purchase their freedom and more privileges from the nobility. Reading and writing is no longer the domain of the nobility and the clergy and the invention of printing information may eventually be spread everywhere. This is the beginning of the renaissance...

Features:

  • 8 completely new professions: mercenary, grave digger, stonemason, juggler, innkeeper, banker, miller and the fruit grower
  • New goods, buildings, ambient details and effects
  • All new scenarios ("Transylvania", "The Rhineland" and "The Alps") & bigger world maps
  • Improved AI, title and nobility system as well as new options (e.g. “God Measures”, levels of difficulty)

Ignore the bad reviews if you think this game will interest you. Its not everyone's cup of tea. And on top of that, its severely buggy and largely unpolished. But if you look past all that roughness, there is a true gem in here. Not many games deliver so well on so much. It may be one of the best PC games I've ever played. Consider the following story as a testament to what kind of game this is:

I started out an innkeeper in a large city in a large region. I was doing okay. I kept selling cheap food and drink in order to open a bakery nearby. The bakery was also not much, mostly baking rolls for the masses. But in time I was doing well financially and took some time off to pursue a love interest.

The same year she was pregnant and gave birth to my first born son. I was busy working and she spent less time at the bakery. Soon all her time was spent between the house and the church. Neither of us minded though. My son was of school age and we couldn't afford much. So we sent him to a guild school to study to join the family business. The same year, my wife was pregnant again, but this time with a little girl.

During this time I was able to afford to be a citizen and was granted the ability to expand my business. I quickly set up an orchard and a farm outside the gates. It was hopeful, as the supplies for both the Inn and Bakery were now completely controlled by me.

By the time my daughter was of school age, we had the assets to send her to the best school possible. My first born son, was not the most amitious child and my first born daughter had a brighter future due to our new financial situation.

I had another daughter, and another son. More of the same, I suppose, as I was too busy working at the largely successful Inn and expanding my business to fisheries and livestock.

My first born son was a disappointment. He was born when we were poor and didn't amount to much. He mostly went to church with his mother and didn't have the skills to follow in the family business. My first born daughter on the other hand, had the right schooling and was perfectly set up to join the family business. My second daughter, while successful on her own terms, didn't match the success of the first daughter. And lastly, my last born child, a boy, was quiet and simply enjoyed school.

When my first born daughter came of age to help out, she did with much ambition. While I worked the Inn, she helped with apple picking and livestock. She was maybe a bit too ambitious as she managed the workers with the attitude of a tyrant. But I was happy with the success of my business and I was running out of room to expand, so I turned to politics.

I managed to win a low level office for a very short time before getting replaced by a man who had leprosy. However, my daughter almost entirely transitioned my business empire away from me and was doing quite well. So I kept at it. I had money to spend, so I intended to use it. I began bribing people for votes, and I managed to bribe the king himself. But, I lost again.

While my daughter ran my business, and I was unsuccessful at politics, I had little to do. So for the most part, I rekindled my relationship with my aging wife. Also, my character strangely had alcohol in his inventory often, and was no stranger to drinking it on the spot or offering it to others. On a strange night, I also tried sabotaging a rival bakery by tossing an explosive in the front door. It was a mistake and didn't do much.

While I declined from power and my daughter took over, I failed to notice my last born son. He graduated from university with a doctorate. He was a scholar and was a full grown man ready to open his own line of business. Upon his graduation, he quickly started a bank and hospital in town. He worked hard, but being the business man in the family, I saw issues. Two doors down from his bank was a rival bank. Around the corner from his hospital, was a rival hospital.

He was happy working and keeping to himself, so I took it upon myself. We bombed them and ran. I went home to my wife and all was fine. Except, it wasn't.

While I was at home with my wife, my son was working late at the hospital, and my daughter was working late night at the Inn, my daughter, unfortunately lead by her father's poor example, carried out a constant barrage of attacks across the entire city for hours. Many people died, including many of my loyal bodyguards, and several buildings were so heavily damaged they couldn't be entered for fear of collapse.

The tooltip read for me - Corrupt. My entire life I was a righteous man and in a single day I ruined a lifetime of good. My daughter however, was labeled a walking nightmare. A title she wore proudly as she was a violent and cruel woman.

A day later I was summoned to trial for my crimes. And shortly after, so was my daughter. Fortunately for me, the persecuter was bad at her job and couldn't articulate my crimes well enough. With experience, I was able to convince the judges that I was not guilty. My daughter - the judge didn't even show and she walked free.

I was done, however. And now my entire business was in the hand's of my daughter and son.

A few short years later my daughter married and had a series of daughters. My son married and had sons. She spent most of her time in the Inn, acting as an innocent server as she masterminded violence. Her first born daughter stayed at home with her father, picking up the skills for crafting.

My son on the other hand built up impressive charismatic skills and began spending most of his time preaching. He opened his own Catholic church and was busy speaking to the masses. He wasn't as interested in the hospital anymore due to issues obtaining supplies needed for medicine. That was, however, one of the catalysts for what happened next.

Illness spread across the city. It struck the elderly for the most part. And the political stage was swept clean.

My son saw this as an opportunity to win an easy election and do some good for the city. So he applied for a entry level political office.

My first born daughter's daughter was also of age and opened up a tailoring shop. She worked in it night and day and was militant, like her evil mother. However, she just enjoyed working hard. She committed no crimes and often gave bonuses to her employees to reward them for putting up with her management style.

My son had only one opponent to beat for political office. But to help seal the deal, his sister showed up and gave some bribe money to the king. He won the vote and was now holding political office. First it was the Leasing Officer. Then it was the Guild Master. Then Bishop. Then he used his political power to help his sister and neice also win politcal offices.

He had charisma and the power of the people behind him. His sister was a brute with deep pockets. She kept helping him win and in return, he would give her his vote when she applied. Together, they made it to the top - Cardinal, Soverign, and my grandaughter was Consul. Together, they took down bandits, banished rivals, carried out crime and government authority hand in hand. All while I watched from my estate. My children took over the city both economically and politcally. All while in my lifetime. Not sure if I'm proud or scared.

If you made it this far, kudos for reading.

Im writing this for potential buyers of this game so they are informed.

1. I love this game as you can see from the hours I put in.
2. The game can be buggy depending on what version you use...

However, you can get a nearly bug free and very enjoyable game experience if you install properly, which steam does not have any instructions on how to do.

If you do buy this game(which I actually do recommend), pls follow these intall instructions.

1. Install the base game(steam version 4.17)
2. Once you got #1, then open properties and go to betas. Select 4.21 and install that. Do not select 4.211.
3. What steam doesnt tell you is that 4.211 doesnt work unless you have 4.21 installed, however, steam also doenst let you install 4.211 if you get 4.21 first.

But not to worry, you can manually get the 4.211 patch from the guild 3 website - http://www.theguildgame.com

If you install properly and up date you will love this virtually bug free version of the game.
If you do not install properly you will not be enjoying all the bugs that make you want to rip out your hiar that you will experience.

Pls mark this as helpful. Thank you

The Guild 2 Renaissance

The Guild 2 Renaissance is the standalone expansion for The Guild 2, which contains all the same features of the same game and then some. Because of this, I will here review the base game along with the expansion in one review.

The game is a economic strategy and production manager game, taking place in Europe the 1400s. Your goal is to build a family, a dynasty and an economic empire from scratch, starting with just a small cottage and enough money to build or buy your first little workplace, and hiring some workers. You can choose which direction you want to expand through, be it food production like farms or bakeries, "Entertainment" industries like churches and pubs, or maybe something seedier, like robber dens, thieves guilds or money lenders. You can even try your hand at politics! The game has a surprising amount of variation if you actually play it for more than 10 minutes.

The game features beautiful music, as well as surprisingly good graphics for it's age and budget. There are however quite a few cons to this game:

There are so many bugs in this game, a few of them are even gamebreaking, others are just hilarious. Most of the bugs have luckily been fixed in community made patches, and there is even a small modding community who, now and then, create a few high quality mods.

The netcode is also atrocious, and i would suggest only playing multiplayer with friends who are patient and understanding of such problems. It isn't that much of a problem though, as i would say you'll have most of your fun in singleplayer anyway.

The Guild 2 is, despite its many, many faults, one of my favourite games of all time, and i truly recommend it to anyone who enjoy strategic economy games, like patrician or the "Tycoon" games. What sets this game apart from those games, is the important fact that you only control your family and your buildings, while everything and everyone else you can see are potential allies or rivals.

Killed a guy because his shop existed on the same street as me, then I killed his family, friends and burned his shop to the ground so I could build my own which was exactly the same as the other shop, but this one was mine.
