Like the 'acqua alta' that periodically floods the real Venice, novices might be overwhelmed by the deluge of information required to keep all the plates spinning in this challenging sim. But with four different game modes and onion-like layers of resource management, political interest and subterfuge, the deal that Rise of Venice presents is a fair one.

It’s a playful excursion into basic mercantile capitalism, striking the same tones as games like Euro Truck Simulator, turning the apparently mundane into tangible entertainment. Built upon sturdy foundations, and executed effectively, Rise of Venice is a simple game with simple core, but enjoyable all the same.

Stay the course, and you will get a lot out of Rise of Venice. That doesn't excuse the bad first impression provided by the confusing trade routes, but this is one of those games where patient players reap rewards. Keep at it, and you might just learn a few things about making a deal for yourself when Black Friday next rolls around.
