Description of High Seas Trader
A solid “high seas” strategy game that falls far short of Sid Meier’s classic Pirates! in terms of overall content and scope, but is actually better if one considers it strictly as a trading game and not a sprawling, swashbuckling adventure that Pirates! is. Trading in High Seas Trader is based on a reasonable economic model, and the 3D perspective when sailing is enjoyable.
WHAT’S THIS ABOUT
High Seas Trader (HST) is an “old world” exploration and trading game by Impressions. In HST you take the role as captain of a ship, determined to make your fortune by trading on the high seas, as any of us did some years ago in the classic game, Pirates! by Microprose. You buy products in one port and sell them for a profit in the next port, to gain bigger ships and more crew, to haul more cargo, and make more money. You repeat this process until you build up your Prestige, Daring and Wealth enough to retire to your magnificent Estate. Hey, Pirates! players, does this sound familiar? It should. HST is extremely similar to Pirates! in many ways, but unfortunately, it doesn’t quite live up to it’s predecessor’s prowess.
THE HIGH SEAS
Well, there must be SOMETHING else to the game, you say? Yep, but not much. Traveling on the high seas in HST is cooler than in Pirates!, though. You get a “3-D” first person perspective and the splashing of the waves and sea gull sounds are pretty cool. You get to steer your ship via a ship’s wheel located in the middle of the screen and it’s fun to watch the waves and see the sky turn dark when a storm approaches. Eventually though, especially during long sea voyages, this gets tiresome and you can use a quick “go to port” feature that takes you to a particular port almost instantly, unless an event occurs along the way. These events range from pirates and bad weather to other traders and the crew wanting to mutiny. Occasionally, you’ll have to fight it out on the high seas. Pirates attempting to sink you to can gain your cargo, switches you to a “Pirates!-esque” combat screen where you select your ammo and cannons to use during the battle . You use your crew to fire the cannons, and assign others to “bail duty” when you get hit. It’s pretty cool the first time, but quickly becomes repetitive. And to be honest, even though it’s more detailed than the ship-to-ship combat than Pirates!, I just didn’t enjoy it as much.
I can’t recommend HST to anyone but the most fanatic swashbucklers out there. If the subject matter greatly appeals to you (or if you can get it for $15 or less), then you may enjoy HST. Ultimately though, I can’t help but feel that HST tacked on fancy graphics and a first person perspective sailing segment, to a big spreadsheet program. When you’re buying cargo at the merchant, you can almost imagine the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet lying underneath. Pirates! by Microprose, had much better combat, great sword fighting action and, to a certain extent, a feeling that you were interacting in a real world. All of which is glaringly absent in HST.
High Sea Saga is a strategy RPG that follows the tradition of all Kairosoft games – such as Game Dev Story, Pocket League, and Skyforce Unite! – offering a straightforward, fun, and even addictive experience for all audiences.
In this game you command a privateer ship and can recruit lots of different characters to make them part of your crew. Each crew member has his or her very own characteristics, and can be more or less helpful depending on what task you ask them to do. For instance, some might be better at combat, while others have more to offer in terms of commerce.
Sailing into an adventure is only part of what High Sea Saga is all about. Another important part is customizing and managing your ship. You can set up a variety of canons on the ship’s deck, and also add special rooms and cabins on the inside. In short, there are lots of different ways to customize your ship.
High Sea Saga is another excellent game made by Kairosoft. As always, they’ve created an addictive title with excellent graphics, which can easily become a new favorite among strategy and management games fans.

Review 1: Remember Pirates? Well, High Seas Trader is a bit like the Microprose classic but more oriented to trade and less to action. It will take You a lot of time to beat some of the game’s parts (like combat and navigation) but as soon as You figure it out You will enjoy in this, rather complex game. An interesting mix of trade and combat.
Review 2: If you are a fan of Pirates High Seas Trader is almost for sure a game you will enjoy unless you only enjoyed the battles, plundering and fighting in Pirates. This is because High Seas Trader is mostly focused on the actual trading business on the high seas. There are several similarities between the two games though. You can hire additional crew in the tavern such as sailors and soldiers, visit the bank, buy and sell ships, repair ships, go to your cabin to get the latest status of your economy and crew and of course buy and sell goods which is the main point in the game. This part of the game is fairly detailed and there are many different goods that can be traded and the economic system is fairly good and realistic. The actual game start also reminds of Pirates as you have to select name and origin. There are no special skills to select from which is the result of that trading is the main part of the game and your actual career isn’t as important in High Seas Trader than in Pirates. The graphics are well done with a lot of details when you are spending time in the cities. When you sail around there is a good overview of navigation, canons etc. and when you are getting closer to land the landscape is getting larger as well. High Seas Trader is another quality game from Impressions and like their other game Caesar Impressions have managed to create a great game based on another game but make it different enough to offer new challenges and additional gameplay without making it look like a copy of the original game.
