Most of the negative reviews have little to do with the experience of this game.

It is a trading/economy sim, at it's core, and it's a pretty serious simulation, taking into account the production and transport of goods throughout most of northern Europe. The political simulation element does feel a little tacked on, but it does serve as a sort of tangible demonstration of your achievements.

It's largely a sandbox simulation--nobody is there to hold your hand and tell you what to do next, and there isn't going to be very much help in game telling you where to buy and sell your goods.

It is a slower-paced game; about strategy and planning. It rewards you for long-term planning.

For those familiar with the series, it is a very faithful recreation of PIII, with numerous interface tweaks and some additional content.

It's not for everyone. But for a trading economy simulation, it is the finest of its kind, and you'll enjoy it.

Patrician IV, henceforth known as "Patty IV's" is in something of a niche genre, in that it is a Renaissance trading simulator set around the Hanseatic League in Northern Europe. Doesn't sound like the most riveting game now, but when I rephrase that as TIME TRAVELLING DOSH SIMULATOR 1420 EDITION it starts to sound ♥♥♥♥♥ing dank. (Note to self, make montage video with that title)

Patty IV's behaves something akin to a sandbox, and the main campaign introduces you to the core concepts in a really intelligent way rather than simply throwing a standard tutorial at you, whereupon you start with modest resources as a simple hemp smuggler operating out of Lubeck aspiring to grow his empire until you control all the booze and kush in Denmark.

The difficulties in the true sandbox mode work pretty well too, they basically make more bad things happen the higher difficulty you select, like pirates stealing your ♥♥♥♥ or bad winters freezing ports over as well as ramping up the costs of production, so that in order to maintain a decent profit margin you actually have to spread your goods out intelligently. Because of this, on the higher difficulties you truly end up as a wicked beer baron, having to ship your product all over Europe to find enough people keen for your booze and bud (Stockholm can't get enough hemp for some reason).

Once you've gotten enough dosh behind you from your 'legitimate businesses' you can move into the world of protection, racketeering and exploitation. You can create fleets of pirate vessels or hunt the pirates that menace your trade. You can be 'elected' in charge of a town and pay off the local authorities to leave you in peace. You can build 'schools' where the goal is to design bigger guns for you ships or ways to grow danker kush. You can even pick up some wench and start 'The Family' (watch that ♥♥♥♥♥, I caught mine cheating once).

Have I mentioned that it doesn't stop there?



Because by know you're already clicking add to cart I'll discuss the DLC now, so you can wrap it up in one easy purchase.

The expansions adds some pretty legit content, so if the gold edition is an option go for it, but the game isn't fundamentally handicapped by missing it out. I even managed to drop about 50 hours into the full edition before finding the key feature of smuggling booze and 'exotic spices' overland that the DLC introduces. It seems like there were a lot of little tweaks that were added with Rise of a Dynasty too, including some fixes with the aforementioned co-op mode, however, so I would recommend picking up the pack if possible.

This is a ♥♥♥♥ing wicked game, potentially the best game to play while you're browsing the net or whatever at the same time, which is ironic due to it not being terribly casual. The reason it has a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ metascore is because all the reviewers are cowards that don't want to put any effort into learning how the systems work, which are relatively easy to understand and smooth to operate. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s are too busy giving 9.8's to on rails shooters to learn how to run a criminal syndicate, uh, I mean 'trading syndicate'. I wouldn't say the game is immaculate, but it's challenging and interesting in a fun way, and I don't regret sinking plenty of hours into it. The ship combat is a little dry too, but that's not the focus of the game.

If you like simulators or relaxed strategy of any kind I'd say it's a must buy.

This game has advanced considerably from the original Patrician in 1993. Various advancements came along with new versions until this 'Rise of a Dynasty' was created in conjuntion with local players.

Trade, build, store, exchange, transport and sell are all in a day's work. Fight a pirate, pay off a Prince with tribute and carry out the requirements of the Hanseatic League Alderman.

Rise to Mayor, Lord of your own town/city, Alderman of the Hanseatic League.

New towns , land routes and wagons, such a wide area of trade.

One little problem, don't lend money to Princes, because they do not pay you back.

Otherwise play and enjoy this for the next year of two.

I paid an arsonist to set fire to a competitor's business. The fire spread and burned the whole city. 9/11 never forget.

At the beginning Patrician IV is a simple little trading game--buy low, sell high. As you become wealthier, it instead becomes a game in logistics. Successful players will find themselves creating spreadsheets calculating distribution of goods among their many towns. This uncommon feature at this stage of the game makes the game worthwhile for those who like challenges that make you think.
