" Become a swashbuckling pirate that just loves to trade in Port Royale 3: Pirates & Merchants. Pirates and merchants. That’s a gaming combination as exciting and alluring as papers and carrots. Pirates aren’t as good as ninjas, and neither of them are as good as robot dinosaurs, while the only time merchants have been good is in Resident Evil 4 with the pervy guy who looks like he’s going to flash but actually has RPGs, shotguns and grenades tucked inside his trenchcoat. Port Royale 3 should be on to a loser, then, given that it is (1) a game about pirates and (2) a game about merchants. But lo! What is this stirring in our gaming crotch caused by its mysterious ways? Why, it’s Port Royale 3, scratching our geek itch in all the right places! And that’s because we see words like ‘trading’ and ‘building’ and ‘open-ended’ – which is technically two words together, but shhh. All of those things remind us of Civilization Revolution on PS3 or Sid Meier’s Pirates! on PSP, and this is a very good thing indeed. While it’s not much to look at, Port Royale 3 is aimed squarely at the strategic gamer. Buying and selling, for example, has a direct effect on supply and demand and therefore prices. You have to pick and choose the right spots to offload your supplies so you don’t unbalance the world’s economy and make things trickier for yourself. Same for buying. Buy from the same port over and over again and they’ll jack the prices. If it sounds dull, this is not and never will be the game for you. It’s for strategic gamers. Like we said. Although you can go in all cannons blazing if that’s the life you prefer. And it’s that choice that Port Royale 3 is relying on, as it allows you to play out the part of treasure hunter, trader or buccaneer. It won’t win any awards for looks or sex appeal, but if it’s strategy you’re after, Port Royale 3 scratches that itch better than most. Sail away, sail away, sail away There is much nuance influencing the smaller elements of Port Royale 3. To form a convoy, you need to get all the ships over to the quartermaster in the nearest harbour, where the largest ship then represents the full convoy. This gives you a higher attack strength and more storage but even then, you have to decide if the convoy will be used for trading or attacking. ch nuance influencing the smaller elements of Port Royale 3.

"Port Royale 3 is a game that has so much incredible depth that it's impossible to cover in a single preview. One member of the development team called it, "Sid Meier's Pirates!, but on an Eve Online scale." I've seen the game twice, and both times, in an hour-long demo, I've been shown an increasing amount of detail. However, the developers are doing their best to make it the kind of game where if you don't care to see that detail, you can hide it and focus on being a swashbuckling adventurer. This is the kind of game that's almost unheard of on consoles, but it can certainly take off if done right. Kalypso's hoping it'll spearhead the genre's birth on consoles."
