Review: Port Royale 4

Port Royale 4 is absolutely excellent in design and gameplay! I’ve never tried any of the games before since it is in the 4th production, and a type of game I don’t play normally. However, if given the chance I would want to try this type of style of game that I never knew I’d be interested in as much!

This game is an absolutely great game that requires so much attention and like any strategy game, one on a digital device or board game, it’s something I love to put my brain to work at! Especially, the game really makes you feel like you’re an actual trader in the 17th century. You’re given so many choices of character who has their own unique gameplay, all freely chosen by us, the players! No one player is ever an issue, there are many to decide while taking on this voyage.

I love, love this game, and can’t say it enough! So to tell you a bit about the game, Port Royale 4 is a very entertaining game that takes you on a very long, historical adventure of trading. However, you get to make that story go the way you like; the adventure is all up to you. The only issue is that things will occur, choosing possibly a wrong strategy for the game can cause a fall in production and the cost of your own ship. So it’s not the simplest game, with so much that can occur, just like it would in a real-life situation.

There weren’t any issues that I acquired with the gameplay. It suited me quite well. I felt the ability to really have control of your own ship, direct and complete tasks was very well created and done. I do enjoy also the time it takes to take the voyage to one location and the other. It might feel a bit long, but it does really give a more true appeal when thinking the time it must have taken a real traveler and trader by ship.

There isn’t much that this game doesn’t provide, as it’s more realistic when you discover and have to even battle along the way. I might have felt a bit overwhelmed with so much to learn. Especially, when playing through the tutorial mode. This, on the other hand, can be skipped. I wouldn’t do so! For first-time players, it is a big help learning how to go from one place to another and buy or sell items. Plus, keep the ship and everyone surviving against attacks. Nevertheless, it can be easily skipped and the game can just begin!

Another reason to love this game is that, with such beautiful graphics and realistic it really appears. You also have such a variety of authentic-looking buildings, products, and ships! Plus the realistic features don’t end on appearance and trade. You also need to build this reliance, support, and care with the citizens that trust you will supply and protect them. Once that is also accomplished, it’s like granting you trust and allowing for better things to happen. Plus, more construction to build up each location, as much as you like.

When you happen to go through a battle with other powerful leaders. It’s similar to other strategy games that require tactics to make sure you come out on top! It is another thinking and planning part of the game, but very much enjoyed it. It can’t always be glory and joy, there needs to be some kind of disturbance and villains to defeat.

Lastly, this game supplies plenty of things to do. You aren’t focusing on just trading but building up, protecting what you have, and even building a civilization that everyone can live in. It’s as if the story is up to you, and you have your hands on the reign. Well worth trying!

First off, Sonic has always been a blast to play, just as much as if I was playing any of the Super Mario Bros....
