Quoted from Merchant Prince II Reviews:Check out these quotes from Merchant Prince II reviews & previews
"Players will soon find that Merchant Prince II grows repetitive and lacks the same sense of involvement found in other strategy games. Fans of the original may give this title a look for nostalgia's sake, or if their DOS version won't work on today's systems, but most strategy gamers should pass on this one and wait for something better."
"Alliances will probably take on even more importance... You'll recognize most of the rest of the game as well... The new game keeps the original title's structure intact... appears to be very open to player-inspired changes."
"TalonSoft and Holistic missed a bet by not providing a better update to the 1995 classic Merchant Prince. They were right to leave the basics alone, but they could have met today's production standards and still retained the original game's feel."
"...the fact remains that Holistic could have done so much more for Merchant Prince II. If you think a game can get by on gameplay alone, well, here's the chance to see for yourself, because that's about the only thing this sad sequel offers."
"The most disappointing aspect of Merchant Prince 2 is it could have been an amazing game. The basic idea is nothing new, but the real fun should have been doing bad things to other people while rising to power. Absolute diehards may find something to enjoy in this version of Merchant Prince."
