4.0 out of 5 stars Port Royale: looking good and just as fun
I've been a big fan of the Port Royale series right through from the first. This is a great addition to the series. It should be noted that Port Royale is not about being a pirate really. Its a trading game with the possibility of piracy later in the game.
As with other games in the series it starts slowly but reaches a point where everything happens to fast. I like...

2.0 out of 5 stars boring
This game was tedious from the start. In-game instructions were scarce and didn,t explain the game enough.The sea battles were terrible, and the control of ships is slow and frustrating. Basically the game is all about trading comodities with different towns which gets boring quickly. There was not enough in the game to keep me entertained. SORRY Kalypso Media

This review is from: Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I've been a big fan of the Port Royale series right through from the first. This is a great addition to the series. It should be noted that Port Royale is not about being a pirate really. Its a trading game with the possibility of piracy later in the game.
As with other games in the series it starts slowly but reaches a point where everything happens to fast. I like the new feature at the start of not being able to build as you actually have to trade rather than build to get started.
The game is a bit thinned down from 2 with less types of mission, but you can still hunt pirates and conquer towns.
I like the addition of the story lines which while quirkely animated is still a nice addition and controls your growth effectivly.
So overall this game is a small supply and demand trading game but with so many additions to keep you entertained Port Royale is an excellent game

1.0 out of 5 stars If you like swashbuckling pirate games..., 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
...then this is not the game for you. If you like nonsensical produce trading games... Give this a go by all means.

But do not expect anything special. Although some of the art stills in cut scenes are fairly good, the story is somewhat one dimensional and the graphics barely grasping two dimensional. The tutorial is practically non existent and the bits that are explained are done poorly and make very little sense.

Unless you like googling every 5 minutes 'what on earth am I supposed to do?!' I would not wish this game upon anyone. I expect a pirate zombie uprising soon in protest.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs much more work in development, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
First the positives. Good graphics, good sound. Accurate to the ideas/ philosophy of the Tudor age when privateers and pirates were active.
Now the negatives. No clues were given on how to trade. On how to gain favour with local dignitaries in each town.

In general I found it frustrating and after 2 hours of trying to do anything other than sail round the seas in a pretty fashion I gave up and sold it.

This review is from: Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Decent trading and strategy game. 3 stars because I found the ship combat difficult to get to grips with, apart from that it would've been 4 star
