Over dit spel

Combining elements from both trading and strategy games, Commander: Conquest of the Americas will appeal to a wide range of players. Players take charge of one of the many European powers aiming to conquer the New World. Starting from 16th century, players can choose from many different nations, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Founding new colonies and then making them thrive is key to success. In order to accomplish this, players need to manage and optimize resources and production in their colonies, before transporting the goods to other colonies or back to Europe. Rival powers and Native Americans can prove to be allies or enemies, depending on the player decisions. Hostile fleets engage each other in highly detailed tactical level. Players can command their ships in RTS fashion or take direct control themselves.
Features
  • Conquer the New World
  • Choose from 7 different European factions

This game as it is is an interesting mix of tactics and naval warfare in the Carribean area.

It desperately needs some attention from its developers due to some annoying bugs which slipped in, but it is still playable.

If you like games like Sid Meier's Pirates, Port Royale, and the like, this will be right up your alley.

Got the game on sale on steam. A good theme purchase, with a unique challenge. I don't know If I want to continue playing it or just send it to the junk pile. (Suggest seeing hours played after review date) - It is best to get the game when on sale.

I love Paradox and strategy games but this one was just missing alot of basic functionality... It felt really slow to get started and going.. I felt like the ship interactions with ports and towns was counter-intuitive.. forcing me to select the town, instead of the ship/fleet... and then I just up and quit when I realized you couldn't figure out who owned all the colonies around you.. no colour coding.. no name.. and no tiny little flag above the settlement.. just a green, white or red halo depending upon their relationship with you. Needs a serious over-haul.

Unfortunately, this has been put into my 'meh' pile. I started the game three times to see if I could get into it but I just couldn't.

I liked this game quite a bit. It does the whole trade thing pretty well. It's definitely one of the better economy games released recently. It not only allows you to build ships and set up trade routes but also allows you to build colonize and maybe be a pirate if you want. I'll go into some pros and cons:

Pros:
-You aren't stuck playing the economy game. You can play a military game by being a pirate or fighting with other countries.
-The game does the trading really well. The amount of resources aren't overwhelming (although the amount also isn't very impressive either). It's easy to just jump into the game.
-There is a good amount of ships and you can customize each one you build by spending a little extra money.

Cons:
-The colony management is a little too simplistic. It does add to the game but it is only picking a building you want to build from a list.
-There are only limited colony spots that you can build colonies on. I would've liked to just see where the resources were and build a colony accordingly.
-You have to buy the resources from your colonies to sell them in the Home Country (Europe) and, as far as I can tell, you can't trade with other colonies. Instead you trade resources via diplomacy but those resources can only be traded via diplomacy and you cannot sell them in Europe. Because of this it is very possible to go negative and you can't do anything about it.

All in all it's a fun game and I would recommend it. Especially now (11/27) with a sale going on. Certainly worth the $4 for the base and $6 for the complete.
