Adelantado Trilogy: Book One
Looked great, but was really disappointing
Despite all the great reviews, I was not impressed with this game at all. I played the trial in normal mode, and the entire game consisted of: messages telling me what to click on or "build", me clicking, and then waiting for my little dude to walk alllll the way across my screen and start working. I got through almost 1/3 of the game during the trial, and it didn't get more challenging at all, although I was able to make some decisions myself (but if I didn't, it still would instruct me what to do.) I can only hope that the hard/expert mode of the game requires some skill or strategy, because the normal mode was slow and B.O.R.I.N.G. I was really disappointed, because I love the similar "road" games that it seemed to modeled after (Roads of Rome, My Kingdom, etc.)

To be fair, I only played the one hour trial. I was prompted to try this game by all of the positive reviews from other BFG gamers, so obviously some people loved it. In sum, if you like games like "Westward" give this one a shot. It is a story driven plot, with a barely there time-management aspect. Gather resources, build sawmills, etc. - that said the game isn't a "My Kingdom, etc." type of game; it is piloted more by fulfilling "mini-quests." Not horrible; not exciting.

Boring...same goals for every level.
This is nothing like Roads of Rome or My Kingdom for a Princess. Every level has the same 3 goals, most of the terrain is boringly similar. For a starter in this genre, it may be OK, but for someone familiar with the above mentioned adventure games, it will be a disappointment. But make up your own mind.

Loved the music and usually love the building games. But this one just didn't do it for me. The help drop downs resembled an organizational chart for a business. You weren't really "in charge" of anything--it told you what you needed and you clicked to get it.

This game is similar to the German game Cultures
and similar to the Westward Series
imo its not at All similar to my kingdom
and roads of rome type games
except that its a resource game..
Beyond that its Totally Different
you have to Think and Plan a Great Strategy
in order to win each level..
I could have Loved this game
but there were issues
first of all ..the Worst part
i dont like Waiting for resources
or waiting for buildings to be built
i understand it has to take a second or two
but having to sit and wait and wait for a resource
No matter how Expertly i play the game
its just not my idea of fun....
Second..i did not like how builders summoned
could ..at times...
take a million years to get to the site
even though i had houses all over the map
and plenty of them...
thirdly ..there were glitches that aggravated me
when literal Seconds mattered
such as the game not immediately registering
that my hero had a certain stone
so i would send my hero back to look for it
and then realize
He Had it
but the game was Delayed to Know it
You are unable to tear down buildings in this version
Highly impractical and tedious
fifth...i think the tutorial was fine
unlike some others commenting
However it continued thruout the game
which i found very annoying having to click off Suggestions
once the tutorial is finished
just be done with it
i dont need the game telling me what to do
Especially when it is the Wrong thing to do..
I like the game okay aside from these issues..
and the last chapter entitled Conclusion
was Def a Challange time wise..
you can finish the last chapter by the skin of your teeth...
I most likely will not play this version again
for the simple fact that i dont like waiting for resources...
its not fun staring at the computer screen its Boring...
i do Recommend it
IF you demo it first and you like it
i dont suggest anyone outright buy it
without a spin around the block first...

Conquestadors Were Kind?!
This game was not half bad except for the story line. These people took advantage of native peoples and killed them. This is a white-wash of history. This game should come with an "offensive - beware" warning.

I've been too spoiled...
by Royal Envoy. *sigh*
Actually, this IS a fun game...but the graphics aren't great. And I HATE the way you have to scroll around the screen. Right click and drag? Really?
But, I have enjoyed the game and will play it to the end.
Actual rating is 3 1/2 stars.

Thank goodness for forums
The game is great, however real light on instructions or "how to" information. If it weren't for the forums I never would have gotten out of many situations. You can't save the game so if you have spent 30 minutes only to find you should have done something earlier in the game you have to start all over again.

He walks too slowly...lol
I played the demo of this game & was intrigued enough by the game & the great reviews to purchase it. I played it for a couple of days & got pretty far along, but I just got bored. Part of it was not being able to choose all locations of what you need to build. Another was the constant prodding of 'build THIS now'. I deleted this game without finishing it, which is a rare thing for me. I am sure it's a great game for plenty of people, as stated in so many reviews, it just was not my cup of tea. I suggest trying the demo before you decide.

PLEASE READ MY REVIEW!!!!
If you want to play an AWESOME game similar to this one,
except it has quite a bit more challenge, you will fine it to be much more entertaining, and the levels don't intend to make your rear go to sleep. You will feel more like the game is actually makeing progress towards some king of goal!! Then you really, really should play Monument Builders: Notre Dame!! Seriously this game Adelantado Trilogy Series are so boring, and the levels are so very long: that if you stop play during a level after sitting there for 30 minutes to an hour...guess what: You LOSE ALL progress, and have to start all over again!! Just not worth it to me!! Please READ MY REVIEW, and take it seriously before you purchase it, you honestly should try,Momument Builders: Noter Dame first!!! You will not be sorry!! You will end up purchasing the Monument Builders vs. Atlantado Trilogy Series after only playing them for the one hour free trial!! Thanks for reading and God Bless!!
