Patrician IV will challenge players to rise up the merchant ranks to become the leader of burgeoning shipping empire during the late Middle Age in Northern Europe.
Based on the franchise that has sold more than two million copies and won the hearts of gamers worldwide, Patrician IV challenges players to rise up the merchant ranks to become the leader of burgeoning shipping empire during the late middle ages in Northern Europe – a time where success in trade could be as rewarding and influential as the power bestowed by noble birth, religious position or political clout.
Patrician IV’s authentic supply and demand based trading system allows players to grow their business and head out to the high seas to form trading routes with other Hanseatic cities negotiating better prices for the buying and selling of goods. Sea battles keep the pace

The programming effort clearly has been put into making the game very pretty and it is in places but this is always at the expense of usability.
Take the trading interface, there is a button to increase or decrease the quantity of goods after clicking on the up or down button you have to keep the mouse cursor still for around a second or it will not register. Clicking on the numbers themselves sometimes highlights them so you can type in the required value. mostly it flashes the selection highlight over the existing value and then blinks off again. This makes setting up auto trade route, which are a major part of the game, really tedious. Double clicking on one of the product icons should move that product up or down in the three boxes, most of the time it simply flashes and stays put. Drag and drop is well drag and random drop you are never really sure where it will end up. Most of the time it pops right back from where it started from. You can and very often do need to trade in the same city 2-3 times in a row the interface does not allow you to do this. So you have to resort to adding your cities in a random order and fight the drag and drop interface on the next tab.Read more ›
I wish for next number to join good things from III in IV and make the best game ever was :) Comparison with other games are not suitable because is different time and place.
To developers: gain information, wishes, ... from us, players :)
I would rate Patrician III and Patrician IV as 4 overall but whereas Patrician III was 5 for gameplay and 3 for graphics, Patrician IV is the other way around.
Personally I prefer the user interface to Patrician III but I think the Patrician IV user interface will be easier for the average game player to learn.
In summary I would say that the Patrician series has gone the same way as the Caesar series: version 4 is dumber and prettier in order to appeal to a younger consumer profile.
Navigation around a crude nautical map unloading and loading a selection of uninteresting goods was not what i was hoping. Game play beyond this is practically non-existent. The only good point of this game is that it is so mind numbingly boring I soon found even the most tedious chores offering more fulfilment than Patrician IV.
Seriously, if you want to play a real strategic trading game buy Anno 1404.

Not as good as Patrician iii, although graphic have improved, the game is not as intuitive as previous versions. Shame really, but I still play my old version.Published on 11 Feb. 2015 by Michael Gilday
Great game but difficult for my puny brain to master. If you like trading and making money this is great funPublished on 4 Dec. 2014 by Amazon Customer
