Average, but enjoyable

East India is decent at what it does. Trading and naval strategy is done ok, but there's nothing spectacular here. It looks good, and most will enjoy it for a time. There are still a couple of niggly bugs that were never quite ironed out, and it will take you some time to get the complete hang of the game because the tutorial has some shortcomings.

A decent historical strategy game

DaiMonPaul | June 27, 2013 | See all DaiMonPaul's reviews »

East India Company is a solid trading and economic strategy game. While there is some combat here, the heart of the game lies in economics and trade. You have to manage colonies and their supplies, trade goods, and make sure your trading routes are protected from enemy ships. It reminds me a bit of a mix of Patrician with Sid Meier's Pirates, though it's not as good as either one.

The game is deep and very detailed, with plenty of micromanagement (for better or worse). It gets repetitive, but it's an interesting take on the economic strategy genre. I'd recommend this collection over just the base game, as you get some extra battles to play (independent of the main campaigns), as well as new options during the game (such as the ability to play as pirates). If you like the game, also check out its spiritual successor, Commander: Conquest of the Americas -- it's very similar but takes place on the other side of the globe.
