Kalyposo's strategy trading sim put to the test.
"Said feelings extend to the point where the fresh features run out and the window dressing around the core principle of numbers slowly increasing starts to fade. At this point, you'll probably be close to the conclusion of the main campaign and at the tenth and highest rank (Patrician.) Once the campaign is finished, replay value is provided by a "free play" option in which the difficulty of the game can be increase, and the production centres of various goods randomised. It's also possible to increase or decrease the number of cities, or their prosperity values. Sadly, there are no options for other specifics, such as the frequency/existence of pirates or how regularly a local Prince will lay siege to a nearby town."
