“Offering bigger battles, improved graphics and other enhancements, Commander: Conquest of the Americas is almost guaranteed to please strategy game fans and naval strategists.”
The Examiner

Про цю гру

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
  • Manage your colonies and their resources, production, military, and much more
  • Game world spanning from the Caribbean to Hudson Bay
  • Naval battles with as many as 30 ships in varied environments and 2 different control modes
  • Interact with both the European powers and the natives

Nice idea.. but poor support & way overpriced.

Game is kind of fun for 1 or 2 hours only.

This game just didn't hit the mark for me.
I was feeliong nostalgic and looking for something like Conquest of the New World and this simply let me down.
Gameplay felt clunky and it lack many things a game like this should have.
If you like automated trade games this would be your thing.

Really fun game, the mechanics are a bit skeptical but the game is overally good on how you setup and expand your colony and as your colony produces more goods the more trade and economic gain you can get while doing it.

The game is great for watching how something so simple such as a single ship and colony can turn you into a rich meglomaniac and build hundreds of ships and a few more expansive colonies and start wiping out other empires.

Really good game 8/10

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.

This game has poor graphics and really boring gameplay. There is an illusion of customisation which does not effect the course of the mission.

Meh. Bought it for $1.99 and killed a few brain cells figuring the mechanics out. It's pretty easy to figure the game mechanics out if you have an IQ above that of a turnip.

For $1.99 : 9.5/10
For $9.99 : 4/10

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.

Commander: Conquest of the Americas is a flawed but still interesting game about the age of sail and colonisation.

You start your game as one of the European nations trying to colonise the new world, from the northernmost tip of Canada down to...The northern part of Brazil. Sorry South America, you're not allowed in here, this game is about the north only.
You are thrust into the role of the colonial governor and have to colonise the new world. To do so, you'll be sending out a fleet to find a place to settle, and then you will be bringing in new colonists and exporting the products from there to the old world.

In time, you will end up with multiple colonies and you will have to set up trade routes and pirate hunting patrols. You will mainly be doing this as you sit back and watch your new world empire grow, trying to make a profit and making sure your advisors are happy so they don't try to get the king to replace you.

The campaign stuff is limited, and somewhat repetitive. The AI nations do not really offer you much of a challenge, and it is easy enough to take out their new world holdings and fleets. Given a bit of planning and thinking ahead, you can turn a massive profit and conquer most of the world. You will then be pretty much just waiting for things to happen as your automated routes take care of everything else.

The game mostly does well in the ship battles, where up to 3 squadrons of 5 ships per side can join battle in a realistic simulation mode that I have not yet been able to find anywhere else. This is my main reason for saying this game can be a good recommendation for some. If, like me, you are a fan of more slow, simulation style naval warfare rather than action packed speedboats with explosive linings and machinegun-cannons then this is a good way to get your fix.
But being entirely fair, I can not really recommend it for other things. The campaign is nice as a way to lend some kind of importance to the battles, but it does not really do much else. The in-battle AI is capable enough that it won't just roll over for you, but it is not amazing either, and the detail of the simulation is still far from perfect.

Even though I like this game, and have probably spend way more time on it than I should, I can't really recommend it for anyone who is not a fan of the time period and simulation battles. It does decently well at the economy and trading parts of the campaign, but it is repetitive and you will find yourself speeding up time a lot until something interesting happens.

This game is a super-comfy and neat way to waste dozens of hours. The mechanics are simple yet feel extremely rewarding, the artstyle and music makes for a really cozy conquest of the New World, and the tactical battles are not complete rubbish. If you like me can find joy in establishing a mass of Danish colonies in Florida and corner an imaginary cotton market, you should play this game. If you miss old-school trading or pirate games but don't have the patience for Anno or Patrician, you can't afford to miss this game. It's pretty sweet.

I do however feel that a trade-centric game set in the 16th century West Indies just doesn't feel complete without slavery. I want to Triangle Trade it up, you know? Furthermore the economy is very shallow and some more dynamism would have been welcome. Like, why aren't my colonies eager to have weapons and tools shipped from home? Why doesn't importing thousands of tons of silver cause inflation? The game is nice as it is, but there's a lot of missed potential as well.

Bought the game at full price not worth it. As usual for Paradox production of the past few years there is little dept.

Game become repetitive very quickly and the battles are not even up to the empire total war naval battle.

Good base for a Beta but there are a lot more titles out there which deliver a better game experience.

there are a lot of harsh reviews but i personally enjoy this game much more than the colonization remake

the emphasis is on founding colonies in the best locations. trading so you can afford a navy, and then naval combat

theres no land combat which seems to be a main gripe of the naysayers

thats fine with me as i personally i think modern strategy games suffer too much from giant soldiers walking about small maps which really spoils the immersion

another gripe of the naysayers seems to the sluggishness of the ships as though they are expecting galleons to maneuver like pt boats

if you like the concept behind the game and see it on sale i recommed giving it a try

7.5/10

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.

This is an amusing game that makes me think of what you would get if you simplified Empire: Total War. Basically you set up cities in the new world, and trade with the home port to grow your economy, eventually waging war (either actual or economic) with the other colonial powers to conquer the americas. the mechanics are straightforward, every building and ship costs maintenance, and all the raw materials and finished good provide income. setup stable trade routes, bring colonists and soliders from the home port and you are set. the graphics are low, but its fun if you like this sort of gameplay.

the controls are simple, and the menus make sense, once you get the hang of it its fun to repeat play because there are different ways to win.

it is a cheap game though, so there are strange shortcuts that are missing, there are a lack of notifications about current events each turn, although there are popups they are usually reminders about failing a mission or a new missoin

that can get annoying for some because well into the game there are a lot of things to keep track of, basically you can set up a trade route bringing ppl and goods in different directions (growing and defending settlements, satisfying needs) but the route you take and the time matter (especially once a good runs out) if you dont mind having to check every turn every single part of your empire because nothing lasts that long then this game is great

i actually didnt care that i kept running things into the ground, i never won, but it was interesting to set up trade routes that eventually failed only to have someone declare war on you

I'm very grateful that I got this when it was on sale.

The combat is awful since ships don't respond to controls, and the economy gets extremely repetitive. Automatic trade routes don't really work either since the commodities are constantly shifting in availability, and the computer creates complex alliances which defy all notions of imperialism. It gets ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ too where the computer will deliberately ally, then raid your smaller colonies to take them over without making a declaration of war. If you take them back, then you implicitly declare war on the whole alliance.

It's a great concept, but extremely poorly executed.

Personally I would recommend this game as a game that you would buy when it is on sale for very cheap.
I will go with the pros and cons of this game as far as I personally experienced them.

PROS:
-a good commerce and civiliazation building game.
-The interface is pretty cool.
-Useful tips and hints as you first start out.
-The Ship combat is fun.

CONS: (there is a lot of them)
-Poor tutorial (no tutorial for combat? really?)
-Advisors can get pretty annoying at times.
-The graphic textures are pretty fuzzy (I am not sure if it is my computer or the game itself)
-The game can get pretty tedious and long.
-Combat can get pretty confusing at first.
-Trying to board other ships needs to be fixed.
-buggy interface
-the art portraits are rather lousy.

Now I am not saying this is a terrible game. But I am saying that this is a good game that would buy when it goes on sale for $1.99. However, I do believe this game needs to be updated and it would be cool if they came out with a sequel.

Many of the achievements seem to be broken and will not trigger. In addition, the naval combat is also extremely broken and buggy. The voice work is terrible. The visuals are average for 2010. The music is bland and repetitive. I think there might only be three tracks in the entire game, at most. Though probably only two. Set on an endless loop, good god. Finally, the commercial and administrative mechanics of the game are extremely primitive and superficial-- this game is, in essence, a poor man's Port Royale or Patrician, as regards the trade sims of this model.

I don't know if I've missed anything, but this game is so uninspiring it's hardly a surprise that I don't especially care. Do not pay any more than $2.50 USD for this title.

The ships handle terribly. The combat AI is stupid (The enemy surrendered to me when they outnumbered me 2:1 and they hardly bothered fighting), the campaign is so difficult and annoying, I couldn't even get 1/3 of the way through it and your opponents seem to generate infinate amounts of wealth while you have bugger all for the majority of the time and the interface is extremely unresponsive, the only saving grace this game has is the graphics which do look quite good. Use your money to buy a total war game.

Despite being a bit enjoyable at its best, this maritime strategy game is scuttled by a very slow start and a lack of depth. Peculiar challenges and a good managerial dimension have to compare with a poorly detailed graphics and an excessive selling price.Strong naval combat is marred by shallow trade and town management.Instead of wrestling with rival nations, you'll tussle with unruly advisors in this naval trading sim.The lack of a tutorial is also not a great selling point.The Age of Discovery has enough excitement and intrigue to fill a hundred video games, just not this timid and repetitive strategy game.Overall, I'd give it a 4/10.A waste of money if you ask me.

While slow to start off, the game unfolds a great world of opportunity in the New World. While focussing mainly on colonization and trade, this game offers also a pretty decent combat system. It's not a great game, because the interface isn't as clear and fluent as it could be, nor is the trade system presented in a understandable manner. However, when you look past those rough edges you can find a tiny gem that isn't like a lot of other bland games out there.

This game has SOOOOO much potential!
It's a shame the game doesn't use any of it.

Very dissapointing game, I thought it would be a smaller civilization game. If you put the time in to learn the game (which could take awhile as the tutorials are in video form with the least interesting narrarator of all time)...MAYBE it could be enjoyable. In other words, I bought this game for sale and I still feel ripped off.

Declared war on Spain after conquering their colonies even though I had no chance of winning. Then, became a corrupt French general and wasted all my colonies' budgets on booze and ships. Spain and their ally Portugal came back and killed me along with my colonies. 10/10 would ♥♥♥♥ off Spain again. But honestly it's a good game but it might not be the game for everyone. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

EN: Cheap, boring, but most important: very very VERY, did I say very? dumb mechanics... Not any space for creativity. Do not waste any bandwith or money to download it unless you are a plant with an IQ of 12 or less. I consider a fair price for this product would be around 1 or 2..... cents, not dollars. Sorry guys, but this game is as interactive as a screenshot!

*** BTW, I really gave it a chance, but most of my playing time is due to the fact that I left it running alone on my desktop...

FR: Pour les compatriotes de la francophonie. Afin qu'ils n'encouragent pas ce genre de produit. De très mauvaise qualité, ennuyant, mais avant tout d'un fonctionnement très, très, très, ai-je dit très? stupide et irréaliste. Ne perdez pas un centime ou un électron à télécharger ce truc à moins d'être une plante qui a un quotien intellectuel de 12 ou moins pour le fait de respirer et se nourrir. Je considère qu'un prix acceptable pour ce produit serait plus aux alentours de 1 ou 2... cents, pas dollars. Désolé pour les concepteurs, ce "jeux" est aussi interactif qu'une saisie d'écran.
