Quoted from 1602 A.D. Reviews:Check out these quotes from 1602 A.D. reviews & previews
"In fact, in that respect it's a lot like going to high school. The "graphics" aren't really too bad, things are balanced out ok and there's plenty to do, but it's uninspiring and mundane. After a while you get the feeling you're wasting time, not having fun, and taking part in an experience that isn't worthwhile in any way."
"On the whole, 1602 A. D. is an enjoyable game. It doesnt have the economic depth of Caesar 3 or the tactical depth of Command and Conquer, but it is a nice blend of economic and military strategies."
"What sets 1602 A.D. apart from the mix is the immediate importance of trade. You must exchange goods with your competitors, with natives, and with pirates to advance from simple pioneers and settlers to affluent and powerful merchants and aristocrats."
"Unlike a game such as Pharaoh, which is carefully designed to keep up with the complexity of the endgame, 1602 A.D. eventually crumbles in your hands, leaving you with wistful memories of when 1602 was fun. Oh, well. We'll always have the Nile."
"For a far more complex alternative, return to Imperialism 2, or if the elegance is appealing, find a copy of the original Sim City. Both masterful games, they are worth playing for the thousandth time before 1602 AD is worth taking off the shelf."
