Why such a low metascore rating?
This game looks interesting but I'm turned off by such a low rating. Can anybody who has played this catch me up on why it is so poorly rated and if its worth playing?

Well it is no action game at all. Even the fights with ships are very smooth. But who loves a good trading game with building the city and lots of other stuff will love this game. Couse its all about a good plan/traderroute/beattherighttimeattherightplace/Buy-build the right buildings/ships
I love it :P

Well, it's also a Kalypso game...whilst they seem to be getting a bit better, they like taking thier old games and remaking them with barely any innovation. Tropico 1 = Tropico 3, right down to the special option choices for buildings. There's something about thier games that are somehow both exciting, but then as time goes on, boring. They need more options and (for sequels) innovation.

I actually wish more developers would do that. So many times games are updated and the changes to game play just mess it up when all it really needed is modernization of the graphics and UI.

Because it is lame and clumsy. Like pretty much all Kalypso games the trade for the nice graphics (and without any sarcasm: they are adorable) is a lack of depth and balance in the game mechanics. There are nifty things one can do, but one does not do it, since the gain from them is too diffuse to calculate whether there is profit in them. So basically one just plays the same strategy once it works until the game is over.

I find it a bit boring compared to the Patrician 3... now those where the days \(^^,)/

lack of innovation is my vote too for low metascore. and frustration/lack of innovation too with the battle engine. It is no Empire Total War ship fighting but it could have been atleast something like from Port Royale or even old Pirates! -game.

I autoresolve fights because i just cant bother with them and on the longer run it does take it's toll on this game. Nevertheless it was a good buy but the price point may be in question for some.
