このゲームについて

The Steam Special Edition contains alternate textures for the Counting House and Cog ship type.

Patrician IV is the sequel to the historical trading simulation and strategy series. You are a merchant in northern Europe in the late Middle Ages when the Hanseatic League was flourishing. Your goal is to rise to the most successful and influential member of the Hanse, ultimately being elected Elderman, leader of the trading league. You start bargaining with common goods, build up your own production and establish a merchant fleet. Later on, you will gain more and more political influence and even found new towns.

However, a Hanse merchant's life can also have its dark sides. On your way to power you have to hold your ground against fierce rivals, whom you have to fight with economic competition, price wars or impure means such as sabotage. Will you even engage in piracy?

Key features:

  • Become a powerful merchant - rise through the ranks using your increasing fame and wealth to shape towns from small villages to glorious capitals under your control
  • A complete strategic simulation - balance competing interests, trade routes, political turmoil, disease, weather, piracy and greedy royalty
  • Build an empire - construct buildings and hire workers, stimulating demand for common and exotic goods
  • Battle on the high seas - protect your ships from pirate raiders in realistic and exciting sea battles
  • Visually stunning - a powerful new graphics engine lets you visit bustling and realistically recreated medieval cities such as London, Novgorod, Cologne and Bergen
  • Friendly Interface and Gameplay - Players will enjoy a brand-new, user friendly interface that makes Patrician IV easy to play but challenging to master

For a build-up game that's in its 3.5th installment, I would have expected more.

The game concept is nice, but whoever was in charge of designing the game control mechanisms should be fired! Automatic trade is tedious to manage:
- an '(un)load everything BUT' option is still missing (as with earlier versions);
- trying to select a destination city with the mouse repeatedly results in the program switching it with another one, or simply nothing being selected at all;
- cities can only be added or deleted completely, not just the destination changed;
- and to top it all off, the game keeps arbitrarily changing certain settings of trade routes back to its own defaults, WHILE THE TRADE ROUTE IS BEING USED!
Specifically, this means that loading your ship from your storehouse in a city will occasionally get changed to buying from the city instead. Quite a big deal when you wonder why your funds aren't getting ahead for hours.

The counting house manager seems to sometimes just forget to do his job, as was the problem before with Patrician II.
Also, when quantities get really large, the default trading amount is increased - which is good for manual handling, but it sometimes seems to prevent the manager further from executing any orders, e.g. when lump trades change the average trading price and he consequently doesn't act at all. Although I'm not quite sure if these two might not just be same problem after all.

The overall game flow suffers from bad priorities for messages. Various events are lumped together as 'task accomplished', without specifying what it is exactly: a returned loan you gave, or a mission you took on.
To know for sure, you have to check the history list - where you then have to delete and confirm every single item of e.g. returned loans to keep the list clean.
Other times, your advisor/uncle - or worse, a competitor from one of the many cities - just pops up and delivers a spoken message while you were just trying to micro-manage some part of the game. You can usually just ignore the competitors, but as far as I can tell, the advisor-uncle only says everything once.

I probably forgot about 4-5 things that annoyed me like hell too.
As I was saying: The person(s) responsible for this mess should be fired.

Anyway, if all that doesn't bother you, the game is somewhat more charming than its predecessors.
Further on the plus side, the uncle's tutorial tips don't try to micro-manage your game. He only shows up at major milestones and you are free to act in between as you wish.

I will probably spend a bit more time with this game when I'm bored. But I'm not going to get addicted or look forward to playing on, like I could have.

A truly mediocre product with a great idea and name. :-(

Great game. Love the trading and the building and everything happening on the map.

So what sinks the game? Sea combat. I rather play Empire TW or Port Royale sea fights rather than this. It is bad in the beginning and becomes even worse as game proceeds. For me it finaly breaks the game.

Early game you can just resolve fights automaticaly or do the ye old pirates style '1 fast ship to nibble them all to death' strategy. Later on it becomes extemely tedious due to bad UI and weird constraints on movement and firing.

There are so many things one rather do than try to do manual sea combat in this game. And autoresolve will not help you in mid to late game when pirates get strong and tight constraints are in place when it comes to how many ships you can bring to a fight.

This was the first Patrician I ever tried- and the last. After watching the instructional video 3 times I tried for 2 hours to make a simple trade. No succes. I have played a whole lot of sim games, but I never saw anything as convoluted as this.

北ヨーロッパを舞台にした交易ゲー。航路や取り扱い商品、自前の生産施設などを細かく設定できるのは面白いが、淡々としすぎていてビジュアル的にも変化に乏しくプレイしていて盛り上がりに欠ける。イマイチ。

交易シュミレーション

交易を主題に置いているだけあり、内容はとても地味
冗談や主観など全て抜きで地味

チュートリアルもお世辞抜きに良くできているとは言えず難しい目のシュミレーションゲームと言える
国産ゲームなら大航海時代に近いと言えるが、あちらよりもっと交易に重きを置いているためキャラクターが目立つと言う事もない
むしろ近いのはTropicoシリーズと言える
海戦要素もあるにはあるが、メインではないのでオマケ程度の戦闘シュミレーションである
半自動戦闘なのでむしろ結果だけ表示してくれるオート戦争で終わらせる事もザラである

自分で産業を興し、工業製品を生産する事で安価に交易を出来る事を利用してどんどんと交易先を組んで広げるのが鉄則なのだが
工業製品を作るにはその地域での信用と地位が必要だったりと自身の企業の本社以外での地域活動も必要であったり謀報まがいの権力闘争等も行う必要がある

日本語化も一応は存在するが、前述の通りチュートリアルがお世辞にも良いとは言えないので良く考えて購入して欲しい
個人的には大航海時代が好きであったのでその時代ベースの交易シュミレーションは非常に良かったとは付け足しておく
