German-crafted economic simulation definitely isn't everyone's cup of tea, but the Patrician series has managed to find a hardcore niche by... well being practically the only one out there. It's essentially a stats and information overload that rivals the likes of Championship manager, making you buy low and sell high in order to thrive in the medieval mercantile setting. If the thought of periodically checking the price of salt in Oslo doesn't get you excited then you should probably steer clear- but chances are that you'll already know if you'll be preordering Patrician IV. Fans of the series should expect more of the same. But better.
