WTMG's Leo Faria: "Port Royale 4 is not a bad game by any means, as it does what it advertises with honors, but maybe I expected a bit more from a game centered around the golden age of piracy. This is actually a relaxing experience, but you can clearly notice it wasn’t created with consoles in mind. It is a PC game, first and foremost. I appreciate the fact the developers went out of their way to provide console players with a port released alongside the PC version, but if you really want to give this one a go, play it there, not on a PS4. This was meant to be played with a mouse and keyboard, while listening to your favorite podcast."
