Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Set in the Caribbean in the 17th Century, Port Royale 2 lets you will trade with over 60 towns and create your own production facilities. You will not only increase your trading empire, but you will also have a larger influence on the development of the New World.

Trade is not everything though: Pirates and military fleets threaten your trade convoys. You can escort ships for your convoys as needed, turn the tides and hunt for pirates, or capture the military ships and become more famous while expanding your own fleet as well as your stock of goods.

If that is not enough, you can also take on missions for merchants, diplomats, and other characters. In the missions of the Vice Kings, you attack and conquer enemy towns and are able to directly influence the defenses of your home towns. Succeed and you will be rewarded with buildable land.


  • Huge game world with 4 nations and 60 towns
  • Construct production facilities, houses and special function buildings to help your towns flourish
  • Create your own towns
  • Stronger consequences in wars (towns can be conquered)
  • Introductory scenarios to describe all important features of the game
  • 8 special scenarios for a quick and easy start into the Port Royale 2 world
  • Open ended game with endless detail and game depth
  • 16 different ship-types
  • New and improved sea battles using modern 3D Graphic Technology
Construct buildings and production facilities, as well as specialized buildings, in 60 towns. You will also be able to build your own cities, once you have received land gifts from the King of the New World, where you are responsible for the towns defenses as well as its needs.

Influence in the New World
Buy production facilities or even entire companies from the AI opponents, making it possible to build a syndicate in one or more cities. In extreme cases (money permitting of course) you could even buy ALL the production facilities from ALL the AI (computer opponents) in the entire Caribbean.

Sea and Land Battles
Define which ships you want to take to battle and which to put on escort duty. In the 3-D Sea Battles, you have the choice to protect your merchant ships with your battleships. You can sink, plunder, or capture the enemy ships. Towns can be attacked from sea or land, and you can control either route yourself.

Intelligent AI Opponents
Military convoys and pirates will have their own methods of battle. Pirates may group up and loiter about their hideout, striking unwary passers-by. Military convoys, however, the military convoys may consider you a wanted man and will actively hunt for on the high seas. Just be careful not to get caught in a crossfire!

Overhauled Trading System
The successful trading system of Port Royale has been expanded in many areas. The production abilities have been made more specific to towns, creating areas where certain goods are well produced is some areas while scarce in others. This helps to simplify things and also makes automatic trade routes more logical and user friendly.

More Automation
At a certain experience level the captains of your convoys will have the ability to create their own trade routes and their own deals, leaving the player with more time for building up his financial empire, missions, and hunting.

Motivational Longevity Features
If you are more successful in building your financial empire, you can hire more captains. The ability to get concessions for towns will also expand. However, you'll need to show your skill as a trader in order to receive a concession. If you are good enough you will be able to spread to every town in the Caribbean, and have a seemingly endless number of convoys. Through intelligent control and overview screens, it will be a simple task for the player keep an oversight of their entire fleet.

Atmospheric Graphics
Beautiful landscapes, towns with core buildings, production facilities and homes will amaze you! Unbelievable, superbly detailed buildings and realistic real-time 3-D sea battles with transparent water and underwater life will demonstrate the power of the Port Royale 2 engine.

Modern Interface
A modern interface with clear icons, created with care and attention, will provide an easy to use interface which every player will be able to pick up, even with a game of this depth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Compare Pirates! vs. Port Royale II January 20, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I played Port Royale II for a couple weeks before losing the CD to a pile of Christmas wrap in the trash (probably). So when my wife wanted Pirates! instead, I went for it. (Besides, she let me buy a couple Fraggle Rock DVDs at the same time.) Now we have to take turns at the one computer powerful enough to play the game.

Sailing around is quicker and more interesting in Pirates! The land has interesting little landmarks, and you can choose to go ashore if you want. There's weather clouds that affect speed and running into reefs can hurt ships (unless at easiest difficulty).

Fighting naval battles is faster and much easier in Pirates! Port Royale II had a much harder battle because you could be up against several ships at a time versus your fleet (you sail one ship at a time at the enemy and switch to the next in your fleet when that one gets too hurt). With Pirates, you always use one ship against one or two enemies. The enemies are usually one small armed escort ship and one poorly armed cargo vessel. If somehow you loose, you have to re-engage the battle with another ship if you want to continue fighting.

Sword fighting is pretty easy to master in Pirates! (I have never ever lost a swordfight, and I am #3 most notorious pirate in the world.) I have only played the two easiest difficulty levels, so maybe this will get harder. I almost always sail one of the smaller, faster ships, get in to boarding range, and swordfight to a victory (even with 40 of my crew to their 150 crew). The animation during sword fighting isn't bad, but pretty repetitive, as there's only about 6 different scenes. Big ships, Little ships, Bars, Garden (for the honor of the governor's daughter), Fortress, etc.

Trading is much better in Port Royale II.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game if you're into trading simulations October 6, 2004
By Leo
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is awsome, I've played Port Royal 1, and Port Royal 2 just bring it to the next level. Obviously this is not a boat racing game, so I don't understand why are other reviewers complaining about the wind. It is a trading and simulation game, and the trade is a lot of fun. Graphics are great, trading engine is crazy, and completely open ended. Buy low sell high, make profit trading in the caribbean sea, get higher social ranking by hunting pirates, establish automatic trade routes, and many more things you can do in the 17th century. If you like any kind of trading game that put you on hook for many hours, you can try this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Game April 21, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a pirate simulation guy. I played Pirates, Pirates Gold, Pirates 2004, Sea Dogs, Pirates of the Caribbean, Port Royale and High Seas. No game has the trading down like Port Royale 2. It is the best trade simulation game available, bar none. With that said, the piracy part of the game is very difficult. You cannot operate at all without a Letter of Marque. If you attack a country's ships without a letter everyone pretty much hates you and you cannot trade any more. The game for you is basically over. You need to trade (which means you probably need to be friendly with 2 countries). Although you can buy your reputation back to neutral or just wait long enough for your reputation to get better. I think this makes the game more true to life.

The ship to ship fighting is pretty basic, you need to have more men than your opponent or you will lose. A bigger ship with more men is necessary to win most battles. Unlike Pirates where you can always win whether you are in a rowboat or a ship of the line. Sometimes there is a sword fight, which is impossible to lose unless you close your eyes until the fight is over.

You can get married; look for buried treasure find castaways floating chests. There is really a lot to do in this game. Time does not fly by and you really have control over how much time actually goes by. This can be accomplished by slowing time down when you are in town and speeding it up when you are at sea. There is no wind to speak of in the game, not historically accurate but who cares? Nothing is more boring than watching your ship take forever getting from one place to another.

You can personally control many sea captains and ships. It can get very hectic and long-winded but all in all I think this is a good game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game December 24, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Unfortunately, a lot of these reviews are trying to compare Port Royale 2 to the remake of Sid Meier's Pirates. The two games are not meant to be alike. This game, made by the same company that gave us the Patrician series, is a carribean trading game with a good amount of action included. It's about building up a legal or illegal trading empire. Sid Meier's Pirates is an action game - trading plays almost no role.

This game excels in the trading genre, and is ok in the action drama. It doesn't rely on as much micromanagement as the Patrician series, but still manages to deliver.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, but be sure on what you're looking for. September 16, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game, very fun, but make sure this is what you are looking for. This is not some sort of action, adventure, or RPG game. This is a strategy. My review won't go into detail, you can read tons of detail from other reviews, but I wanted to make sure you all know, this is a strategy game, don't buy it thinking it is anything other than that.
