The Guild 2 with the new Renaissance upgrade is a solid game. Not perfect mind you but solid. If you are a fan of simulation games like The Sims, or are fan of business games then this game can be enjoyable for you.
-There are quite a few different maps available for play. So finding a change of scenery in the game is possible, but there is no way to create your own maps which is too bad.
-There are a lot of different store types in the game to experiment with
-There is more than just business. Family management and politics are present as well
-The timeline of the game takes place in what I say is a fairly unique setting. Few games of this type take place in that area of history
-Although there are a lot of maps for play the replay value on this game is weak. Much of the gameplay is the same no matter which map you play on.
-There is quite a clear lack of balance between the jobs in the game. Some earn fantastic amounts of money while others make close to zero even with all of there upgrades. As well a new player has no way to know this until they play more of the game.
-The AI is quite weak. They are unable to build or politcally compete with the player in any meaningful way. This means that once the player has gained any bit of power they will have nothing more than limp rivals to contend.
-There are many bugs in this game. I frequently found my family in the game out thousands of dollars because one of the characters could not 'find a path' to a feature. This was just one of the many that were present.
All in all if you like economic games and simulators this game does have its fun. However the fun is limited and its replay becomes shortlived with the lack of functional AI. ** out of ***** for the average gamer I would say.
