Once you overcome the Puerto Rico the PC Game's interface, the program's AI opponent is actually pretty good and challenging. The computer (expert AI) opponents win most games. This keeps playing it fun. The only better game is to play the original physical game against several expert friends, but that entails over an hour per game. The PC game takes about 5-10 minutes, so you'll get more practice at it.
Note Bene. This game was written for Windows 98/ME/XP, and have a modest demand for memory and hard drive space. However, you MUST upgrade to the Version 1.2 patch at www.eaglegames.net/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=EGL350 (go to Eaglegames web site, click on the "computer Games" on the left column, then click Puerto Rico the PC Game). Scroll down and click on 'Downloads' tab next to the description tab. Click on the "PuertoRicoUpdate_1.2.zip" link and save the download. Install it.
Without this upgrade, the CD installation will crash immedately after clicking on the icon on Windows 7. The error message is "Puerto Rico.exe has encountered a problem..." and the error report file details--
AppName: puerto.exe AppVer: 18.104.22.168 ModName: oopd3d81.dll
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 00003f71
The version 1.2 patch fixes this.--Enjoy.
But it is fun, and if you're addicted to the board game (which is much more satisfying), the PC game is a good way to get a quick fix. The gameplay is faithfully reproduced; it's just not as much fun as playing with other people.
The AI is not very good. First game I beat the top AI, while still refreshing myself on the rules.
You should pick it up if you can find it at a bargain price...

True to the board game, the AI is very good as well. Graphics are good and the board is easy to understand.Published 14 months ago by Dale C

This is a good version of the card game. Kind'a wish the UI was a little better laid out, but it's pretty much like playing the card version of the game!Published on September 3, 2013 by James M.
