I see the rating are not good for this game, and nobody has achieved 100% yet. Why?

I have not seen any negative posts about on here but yet on Gamefly the rating is a 5.

And are some of the achievements glitched? Or just to tough? Or what?


I want to try this game out, but I wanna know what I am getting myself into here.

I have a captain with 3/4/2/4/5/4 so i was going to try and max him but now for some reason I can't find anymore teachers. I go from town to town and see some people in the taverns but soon as I open the tavern it says they are gone. I'm guessing they were the teachers. I still find other types at the taverns.

Also i've been in many battles and boardings and let the captain sit on trade route for 3 years on x10 speed and no skills have gone up.

this sucks

All you need to do is focus on building up your towns and economies, once you have a tonne of money, just keep checking all the towns. Easiest way to do this is build a warehouse in every town so you don't actually have to travel there. Once done, find a town that has a teacher then save it before talking to him. Once done, just stay on the city info screen and fast forward the time to see how many days pass in between his leaving and someone else turning up in the tavern (anyone at all, not just a teacher). That is your window of waiting. Once you have the number of days in your head, reload and search for all the teachers in every city, speak to them and utilize them if you can, then fast forward that number of days, then check and again. Rinse and repeat.

To be honest though, this shouldn't be a problem, I got it buy buying the last 6 or 8 upgrades I needed whilst I was going around taking over towns peacefully. It all went by pretty fast.

I want to try this game out, but I wanna know what I am getting myself into here.
The game itself is tough, not because it is inherently hard, but because things are explained incredibly badly. I had to figure everything out on my own, save for one or two things I asked around for explanations over. In the end I didn't even use the guide that's stickied here. It's not a bad guide at all, just the opposite, it's a good one, but whilst it told me how to get achievements, it didn't tell me how to play the game, which was more important, because you can't get all the achievements without knowing how to play the game first. Once I figured all that out, I was able to plot my own course to getting the achievements.

The achievements themselves aren't actually difficult, they're just incredibly time consuming. You will use at least the 50 hours required for that achievement getting all the other ones, and probably more. A few of them are a real grind as well.

As it stands, I have no doubt at all that I'll get all the achievements, it'll just take some time.

Also, whilst none of the achievements appear to be glitched, the actual method of unlocking some of them seem to be a little wonky. For example, one for sinking 1000 ships, it is reported that people have only got it after completing 1000 separate battles in which at least 1 ship was sunk, not a total of 1000 ships across all battles. There is also a possibility that you need to do that one manually and not with the auto combat, as I haven't got it yet and I'm pretty damn sure I'm way over 1000 different battles but most of them are Auto combat, I only ever do the manual combat for boarding ships.

If you get it, and this goes for anyone else too, whilst I have the game, I'll be happy to give you a tutorial over live or Skype (preferably Skype as my Live headset is crap). Save you playing for a week or 2 and not really making any headway.

Awesome thanks for the heads-up! So Overall what would you rate the game out of 10? And would the game manual not have all the directions in it?

But if I do need some help I will add you over live with a message reminding you why I am sending a friend request. I have no way to skype because I don't have skype or a webcam.

It's hard to rate in all honesty. There are many parts about it that I really love, and I was somewhat addicted to playing it.

BUT

There are some real issues, gameplay and menus are poorly explained for example, plus the game can be slow and awkward, and there's no real point.

I can't really recommend it to anyone in good conscience, but IF it's something you are likely to enjoy, then it is very very fun.

I am going to give it a shot. I am a big fan of Tropico and Age of Empires. And this looks almost like a mix between the two with its own little twist on it.

im going to give up on the 500 patrol battles and sink 1000 ships, even getting 500 guns total seems too annoying. it was fun in many ways and dumb in some others. i got too many other games to be grinding for days to get those. not sure if im interested in the dlc.

Finally got around to getting this game. About to try it now. I think I will really like it.
