Interesting and Deep Strategy Game

East India Company is a game of trade and battle at sea. I approached the game without taking any of the tutorials and found it fairly easy to get into without them. Gameplay at the beginning involves sailing from one friendly port to the next buying and selling goods. As you can afford to you can add new ships to your fleet making aggressive behaviour towards other ships possible and eventually you can attack enemy ports. I enjoyed all of this but still feel there is a lot more to the game than I have seen so far. The graphics in the game are not as beautiful to look at as the screen shots but are far more than merely adequate. There are some short videos played when certain events happen in game and I suspect some of the screen shots are taken from these. The game's sound is adequate without really grabbing your attention. I did suffer one crash while playing so I strongly recommend you save your game more often than I did!
