    Port Royale 1 was the same, but better

    Thanks, i've seen enough to say this game is Port Royale 1 with some changes that would not add a positive change. 1st, you battle with only ONE ship of your fleet at a time, so, if you gather 4 or 5 ships to fight, it ... Read Full Review

    Port Royale 2 will have you sailing to make a name amongst the best of Carribean.

    Port Royale 2 is asequel to the first Port Royale game. Unlike the previous game, which was a slight failure, this new game is a really good game, just if you take into consideration its new features and customization. ... Read Full Review

    Brilliant atmosphere. A must-have title.

    This game belongs to the list of the classics for my playing list. It is an excellent economic simulation of the pirate era at the carribean sea. Though it lacks the depth of graphics superb Sid Meier's Pirates! has and ... Read Full Review

    It's an economy sim that takes place during the days of the buccaneers and pirates in the Caribbean.

    Where Pirates! lacks in economy aspects, Port Royale 2 excels, plain and simple. Although it doesn't really compare to Pirates! There isn't a basic economy where you can fill ports' need by constantly shuttling back an... Read Full Review

    A well designed trading sim, good for all those empire builders out there!

    Port Royal 2 is a nicely balanced economic sim. The economy of the game is dynamic so you can't simply find one good run and do it all game. Like real life, the demand for items ebb and flow. There is a nice mixture of r... Read Full Review

    A fair attempt to recreate the goodness of an old school ocean trading sim, mixed with some quirks here and there.

    Port Royale 2 is not for the casual gamer. Unless you are really into micromanagement simulators, or the 1600 time period the game is set in, you probably won't last long in Port Royale 2. While the game sports excellent... Read Full Review

    The first PR was better...

    This game isn't a bad game, don't get me wrong, but the first one was better. PR2 has a very easy ship to ship combat system, where you can basicly just pull your one boat off the screen and get a fresh one to attack... Read Full Review
