An epic time mangaemant
I have never seen a more well-created game of this type. The story line is funny, the game play is easy to learn but hard to master, and the game just grabs you from the beginning.

I love these types of games. I own all of the westward games. Cant wait for another one.

I enjoy playing games that take several weeks to complete like this game. The tasks were challenging by not difficult to come.

Wesward Series Allows Freedom
I was shocked when I looked up Westward (hoping that somehow there might be a new game) to only see 5 reviews. This series is what hooked me on playing games and I am still wishing for more games of this variety that are as good as Westward, Wandering Willows, & Hero of the Kingdom. In my opinion the Westward Series (and Westward III specifically) is the best. The play is all similar, you have a quest to achieve and must travel around a map and produce and find things in order to achieve that quest.
However many games limit where you can place and build items, what order you must do things in, etc. This game assumes you have intelligence and allows you the freedom to build things wherever you want. Some choices may mean you cannot complete the task because you run out of money or get killed or burnt out because you do not have enough support help with you, but that is part of the game. You learn, just as folks settling a new land did, what you must have and take care of first in order to survive. Each of the five games in the series are long playing and well worth the money.
I know that the company who developed this has been sold. There must be some game creators who could create something similar in Africa, the Rain Forest, Australia, and many other places that would be just as fun. Big Fish, can't you find or hire these folks?

First opus of a great series !
You're in Farwest in a become city after having dealt with a prospector. You then have to check various characters, build buildings and go through the territory in search of new resources.
The +: an effective tutorial / funny characters / multiple parallel quests / varied and numerous improvements / good music / tons of gaming hours (with 25MB it's very impressive ! )
The tiny -: you have to save your game (don't forget :-)
You have no time limit to make your missions. I didn't find this game difficult but stimulating! I concentrated on the objectives and the dumping was immediate. Wesward is the first of a great series (4 by now). For fans of strategy games it's a "must to have".
Note : didn't encounter any problems (no bugs).
