East India Company
flaw in design
i like the stategy move enough products to the home office to win the mission. but during the last mission of the grand campain the ports ran out of the main product. To play this game i had to use impulse because my video card didnt have pixel shader. The controls are a mess sometime you click on captain or in port you click fleet you get something else. To see where your fleet is going you click on the captians picture and then a box pops up shows a picture of the captian and its fleet then you have to click on the picture in the box and then it finally shows the desination . you may have 20 captians so to reveiw all the capts you are going to be clicking alot of pictures. They need a better way to tell where the capts are going. i enjoyed it even with the flaws in the controls but when you cant win because there no product at port i would say dont buy it
Steep Learning Curve
Now I've played some strategy games in my day but this one has got me - I got insanely frustrated with it months ago and now it just sits in the corner but for anyone with some patience I am sure this game could be some real fun if you devote some time to learning how to play and the tutorial was unhelpful or at least for me - I wouldn't buy it unless you just feel like spending money.
TOO MANY FLAWS
This could have been a good game but it seems like it was rushed. It crashes big time right in the middle of a battle and it happens several times. There is already 3 patches out to try and fix it but didnt really help. There is no tech support phone help, the only help you get is in a email that you have to wait a week for and they tell you to do the same thing you have already done. The game has many bugs and forget about online play. Theres no one online besides it would crash anyway. Theres no way of getting a refund. Hopefully they will come out with another patch soon to fix the horrible controls that you have to keep clicking and a way to stop the game srom crashing. until thats all fixed I wouldnt reccomend this to anyone save your money.
You can feel, like you're one of the captains.
Please, everyone! Play this game! It is really good! I prefer it to every other PC game! Choose your country, build pacts and forge alliances. Break them, fight other nations, start wars. Capture Indian ports and win the game! Buy and sell goods, to be the richest nation on the Whole East Indian Company! PS: Be aware of pirates...they are hard to stop...
