gets boring quicklyMikagee | Jan. 19, 2013 | See all Mikagee's reviews »
this game is mostly managing ships to trade all over Europe and Asia, this game can get very boring quickly. The big difference of the game though is that you can have real time battles when enemy ships meet which are always fun to play.
The graphics are decent but I can find many others that are better. The sound of this game is good as I can hear my men getting ready to fight and seagulls flying about.
I would not really recommend this game to anyone, as I earlier said that I can find a better game like empire total war to have Naval battles in.

This game is great , if you want to play the history of east india company.
I played this game for school and i really learn from it :D. Also if you want to be a pirate , hurray get this game and enjoy the experience. Also its really nice that you have to do trades in this game , i didnt see it before in an other game.
But i must be critic , this game isnt one of the beautifull graphics.
a little dry...ArtyArt | April 5, 2011 | See all ArtyArt's reviews »
For being a game about adventures on the high seas, East India Company feels a little dry. The main focus is on the establishing of trade routes. This might take a while, but once you've set up your company, there's just not too much left to do. You sit there, watch your money pile up to ridiculous amounts, hunt some pirates, wage a little war, rinse and repeat. (I have not played as a pirate, but I cannot really imagine that the pirate life offers more variety in the long run.) It's a nice game overall, but it isn't terribly compelling.

Great game. Along with all the extra content from Expansions provides tons of fun. Beautiful graphics perfectly reproduces the ships of that period. You can practice trade but can also be a pirate and rob other ships. If you've played once in the SeaDogs or Sid Meier's Pirates, this is a game for you.
