I like it, though I've always enjoyed games based around trading. The fleet battles aren't all that great, but they seem to be a fairly minor part of the game. Most of the focus is around building a vertical business supply chain in a bunch of cities that you can create an efficient automated trade route around.

Once you get that going you start raising your influence in your key cities by building homes to go along with the businesses (people who rent from you and work for you like you better), and then you can become mayor. That lets you develop the research and defensive structures in your town, so that you can tell the local princes to buzz off instead of paying tribute on a regular basis.

If that sounds fun, then it might be worth it
