      I’m only just a little miffed that this is really an updated version of Smugglers 4. Mostly the same art assets with some updated gameplay. But I’m being asked to pay full price for another version.

      • Brian Rubin says:

        That’s all? This is the only Smugglers game I’ve played so I wasn’t aware of the changes or improvements, if any.

          I could be wrong….wouldn’t be the first time! But from what I’m reading in the changelogs and forums it’s basically Smugglers 4 the expansion pack. But folks are being asked to buy the full package again. I’m willing to give Neils the benefit of the doubt…he’s not a “take advantage” type developer. But something doesn’t seem quite right.
          And I’ve paid for Smugglers 4 (way back when) so I’m not in a big hurry to jump on a full price “new” version.

          • Brian Rubin says:

            That’s totally fair man. Would you like me to contact Neils and ask about your concerns?

  2. Hi there, thanks for the review Brian.

    Here is a full list of all changes from Smugglers 4 to 5:

    You can also get the same link on my official website (http://www.nielsbauergames.com/smugglers5.html). If it´s ok for Brian I can also post the whole list here (or he may), but it´s really, really long.

    Just browse through. I think I have added a tons of new content that very well justify the price, but you have to make this decision yourself. What you see is what you get. I think it´s obvious that it´s not a complete new game. That´s why it has a 5 in it´s title. When I had to decide between cosmetic changes or content updates, I have decided to rather include new content updates.
