an engaging game well worth its modest price… great first simulation game to try… 1503 A.D. is a wonderful simulation game for several reasons. It is an engaging game, well worth its modest price. If you are NOT a “gamer”, 1503 A.D. is a great first simulation game to try and see if you like this genre.First, it’s important to note that 1503 A.D. is not about slash and burn like Age of Empire. Nothing wrong with Age of Empire, but in that game your sole purpose in building an economy is to build a military to defeat the other guy. And when the other guy’s defeated, the game stops. And if you don’t attack him, he’ll attack you, so it’s a tense play.In 1503 A.D. your goal is to build an economy and explore the new world. It is a simulation of that time when Spain, France, England, Holland etc. first sent ships to the Americas and the Caribbean Islands and discovered the fantastic lands and resources available there. You play at your own pace without time pressure.I find it engaging on three levels: first, creating a working economy…

Changed my mind: I LOVE IT The initial version of this software AD 1602 was fun to play, a kind of post-Renaissance Sim City. After a long wait, the 1503 version was released.

Delayed 3 times over 3 years. Now out and ADDICTING! The first few nights I spent 10 hours solid playing. This is not good for school. Incrediblly addicting. I like economic simulations that don’t focus on war. This is a one of a kind game that gives you a choice to war or not because the AI follows your actions. It has a new twist on the economic scheme in that it is a less comunistic form of government. The funds you acquire are from the sale of items at the market square (Capitalistic). The game takes long in progressing from level to level moving from pioneer, setteler, citizen, merchant, aristocrat. The education system is expanded from the last game of the series (1602) to include research for warfare units as well as larger ships, wells, larger textile manufacturers etc…You will like this if you like CaesarIII, 1602ad, Tropico.But you will not like it if you like to just war and avoid the whole economic thing as in: Starcraft, AOE, C&C Generals.Allthough if you like both CaesarIII and AOE then you’ll love…
