Vagary's The Strategy Gamer reviews Port Royale 3.
"Those of you who know The Strategy Gamer know that I am, for lack of a better term, blood-thirsty. This is why you may find it odd, that when Captain Tony sailed the Caribbean, he did so as a peaceful merchant, buying goods at rock bottom prices and selling them off to the highest bidder. Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants, offers all its players that eponymous choice: do you wish to be a ruthless raider, seizing convoys and attacking cities, or a trader, engaging in commerce and making millions through commerce? Despite my jingoistic nature, I leaned toward the addictive commerce trading model, seeking riches and having a good time doing it. It’s certainly the most polished portion of the game and the highlight of the show."
