WorthPlaying.com reports that you get to choose and command your own fleet of explorers as you et out to explore the maps of Hispaniola and Mexico. Aside from negotiations and adventure, there are also combat modes, where you get to control the battle from each individual troop's point of view.
What's even more unique is that you are not commanding mindless drones. Rather, teach troop member has his own face and personality, and their morale will actually be affected by the outcome of your decisions as leader. It's a test of whether you will set out to be a great leader or a ruthless force to be reckoned with.
