Je kunt scheepjes kiezen uit elf verschillende landen, waaronder, uiteraard, Nederland. In de campaign mode moet je het helaas met Engeland of Amerika doen.
Volgens CGO is deze game meer dan een waardige opvolger aan het worden en zeker wel de moeite waard om in de gaten te houden voor de RTS fans onder ons.The game, just like the original, is played out in real-time. And while it lacks an option to allow orders to be issued while paused, the pace of the game is slow enough so that there really isn't much of a need for one. If you play at the default game speed, reloading a cannon can take up to five minutes, so the pace can hardly be classified as hectic. Thankfully, Akella allows players to increase the pace to up 32 times the normal speed. This should keep less patient players interested while true grognards can plod along as slow as they wish.Variety certainly isn't a problem, either, as the game includes 13 ship classes, (from quick, lightly gunned sloops to massive Ships of the Line) 1,200 historical ships, over 100 historical and random scenarios, and the historical and random campaigns. There is a lot of meat on this bone. Voor de uitgebreide preview surf je naar CGO.
