2.0 out of 5 stars Better off getting Port Royale 2. May 30, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download
Its hard to fully express how disappointed I was with this game. Having loved Port Royale 2, and spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours playing that game, I was super excited to find out that a Port Royale 3 was coming out. I found out two days before it came out, and got 15% off by pre-ordering the game. The first game I think I have ever pre-ordered. Even at a discount, it's not worth the money.

Ever seen a video game get a face lift? That's basically what this was. Another old time favorite game of mine, Deadlock, by the now bankrupt and gone Accolade, did the same thing. Produced a great game with Deadlock, and years later released Deadlock 2, which was identical to Deadlock 1, except for different menu colors, and re-done animations. Nothing new was added, no new gameplay, no new missions, dont even think the music changed. Very similar thing has happened here. The company that made Port Royale 2 is bankrupt and gone, and this is more like a digitally remastered version of PR2 than an actual sequel to PR2.

Port Royale 3. They did change the music. The music is decent. That may be the only compliment in here about this game. The ships are the same, the towns are the same, the goods are the same. Granted, there's a lot of things that wouldn't make sense if they changed, like the name and/or location of a town; and I'm not expecting sub-marines to be available at the shipyard alongside wooden sloops. But... come on, if there is nothing new in the game, why am I buying it? There were no additional ship designs that could be offered, or a way to customize ships, or smaller towns that could be added alongside the existing larger towns ?

PR2, you had 19 different commodities that you could trade. PR3 has 20.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as people say August 1, 2013
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
I also have Port Royal 2 and for a while now I could not play it due to my new computer's OS. PR2 was simply too old to run on my computer. However, PR3 is almost exactly the same as PR2 but I consider it an upgrade. For one of my favorite computer games of all time, I got to play it again (because the system requirements checked out), I got a huge graphics upgrade, and I got it for less then ten bucks.

A lot of people were also complaining about the learning curve of the game. However, I can remember PR2 was no different in that respect. The only "learning" I had to do was to figure out where the menu buttons were moved to as well as a few things in the combat parts.

I do not rate this at 5 stars because (besides graphics and OS requirement upgrades) there was nothing really added to the in-game experience. Over all, I think it is an exceptional game if you can get past its quirks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Requires username/password to play October 24, 2013
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
It's an alright game, but requires registration and a user-name/password to play. I'm wonder why, at the $5 bargain-bin price? The game itself is what I expected having tried the PS3 version first. I had no problems with installation and the game worked with my HDTV widescreen 720p television so the proper configuration and support is present (unlike in Port Royale 1 or 2 which have screen cut-off issues) The game controls are a little more friendly with the keyboard and mouse than with a PS3 controller. Generally I recommend the PC version if you are a fan of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Port Royale 3 Mini-Review October 5, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download
Jim here, with my short & sweet review just in time for the official launch of the boxed edition next week.

Sadly, I missed out on playing the previous versions of Port Royale. Port Royale 3 is my introduction into the series, and from the start until now, my experience has been rather pleasant, indeed.

To me, PR3 is Railroad Tycoon meets Age of Sail, both of which are legendary and beloved gaming series' to me. There's simply a lot I love about this game. I love the acts of trading goods between ports, stocking up my ships with goods at one port, then selling them all at another, and watching my profits rise higher and higher. I love outfitting ships for war, shanghai-ing sailors into servitude, arming them with swords and muskets, and hoping they don't mutiny. I love the aptly-paced real-time combat, outsmarting the AI with my naval combat maneuvers, and slowly and expertly filling their ships with holes and lead until they sink in the drink. Surprisingly, I also find myself enjoying the main campaign's storyline, with the adventure, love, and political intrigue.

Yes, of course, it's not a perfect game. There are more than a few things I find bothersome with PR3, but thankfully none of them are things that break the game for me, or are causing me to dislike and quit playing. The buy/sell slider is one of my most irksome griefs, as it's a nuisance to use. For what it's designed to do, it does work, but it requires much more effort than is warranted, in my opinion.

Another string of errors I've noticed come in the way of mismatched verbal and written dialogues. For example, the character speaking will say `ship', but the on screen text will have it written as `vessel'; spoken `city' is written as `town'; `commodity' is written as `good'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Realistic economy and pirate battles - everyone wins October 4, 2012
By Miguel
Platform for Display:PC Download
Imagine Farmville, but instead of lamely set in a single farmstead, this is set on the high seas and there's NO annoying of friends to play and send gifts. If you like buying/selling goods and building your own company, you can play in Merchant mode, but if you like more action, you can jump into Adventurer mode and play more pirate-hunting and exploration type missions.

I like the fact that this has support for Xbox 360-type controllers, which makes it a lot more playable over having to remember all the keyboard commands. You might prefer the keyboard - to each his/her own.

I loved Tropico 3 and I was looking forward to something similar, only with Pirates! The economic side of the game seems like it has potential but quickly gets boring. Read more
