Product description

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.

Manufacturer's Description

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

If you are new to the Patrician series then you may think this is a good game. If you do take a look at Patrician III. If you have played and mastered Patrician III then in almost all aspects Patrician IV is worse. The UI is painfully slow even on my 3Ghz quad core with 8GB RAM, DX 10 compatible GPU with 512 RAM, Hardware RAID card with 2TBs of free space (this is really fast disk) running 64 bit Vista which according to the box this game is "enhanced for". I would hate to play it a slow machine!

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.

Bought this game few weeks ago I found it good even I was scared as I read some rewievs. I agree there is a bad main map if you played Patrician III, ships showing is awful for example but other grafics are good. Cities inside are nice with all structures, I welcome more economic battels with rivals, only what I miss is, some more productions in cities as they are limited to 4 or 5 for the most. I dont understand why the reputation does not grow when you buying goods from the city? Economy is not only selling...
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 :)

In itself Patrician IV is quite a good game but it is not as good as Patrician III unless your priority is pretty graphics.

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.

Having never played any of the Patrician series I had very few preconceptions regarding this game. I am however a fan of strategy games such as Anno. This game failed to meet even my fairly low expectations. The graphics are average at best while the gameplay is dull, fiddly and unrewarding.

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.

I am a fan of Patrician series and there are several good differences between Patrician III and Patrician IV. One of the new features that I like is an active Piracy which give you lots of money. Also is more easy to trade (no need to open a city painel you have buttons that allow you to trade directly without going to the city). Also the new ranks are accurate and easy to achieve. However the game as a whole is not so easy to Master. Good buy, I like it.
