    This game is a must have for all lovers of economic and strategy sims. infinite hours of addicting gameplay. It has a learning curve but once you are familiar with it, especially setting trade routes the game gets a whole lot better. gameplay is great and the music is relaxing!

    The open ended gameplay is the fun part! The missions get boring over time, but the unlimited free play is what keeps it a winner. As for the graphics: it is fairy 2D, but also sufficient for the game. At least the in town view looks better than Age of empires 2!

  1. A trading game with some aspects of RTS added, so for the armchair empire sim fans it will probably rate at least a look, and probably an outright purchase, but the game probably isn’t for everyone since the steep learning curve could well put some people off, but perseverance will pay off for sure.
  2. A fair attempt at a sea-trading title, which fans will enjoy; however the lack of any innovation could put off those looking for something new.
  3. Above all, Port Royale 2 is a remarkable accomplishment, largely because it can make economic simulations captivating even to those who may typically dislike the idea of this game genre.
