  • Satiates your inner accountant, Diverse commander abilities, Big empires and big mustaches
  • Deep, satisfying naval combat, I got to be a captain!, Trade system is easy to jump into
  • Competing for control over India with other European nations is a blast. Diplomatic system is well worth exploring

Reviewers Didn't Like

  • Tactical combat wont float your boat, Multiplayer campaign lost at sea, Combat autoresolve favors the AI
  • Loading is an issue, Title is far too focused, Little issues pull you out of the fun
  • Patience is a virtue in the game's lengthy sea battles
