Infested by snakes, surrounded by Amazon...
Though there's nothing new in this third enterprise, the gameplay experience of Rio Branco is unique; due to the location of the property.
The property is surrounded by the bending river. Though, there are plenty of rubber trees inside the area surrounded by river; the fertile trees are on the other side of the bending river.
Located near the Bolivian border, Rio Branco was in the middle of the conflict between the traditional rubber-tappers and the multinational companies. In Rubber Boom times, this snake infested region was famous for its harsh environment.
The first three maps are categorically different from the next three. The first three maps; Welcome to Amazon, Deep in Jungle and Rio Branco has the standard features of Rubber Boom; but have their own characteristics. On the other hand, the next three maps; Fireants, Piranhas and Lost City of Z have their own unique features.
Rio Branco is a hard enterprise due to its strange topography. Most of the land stays inside the bending river; but the fertile rubber trees are on the other side. The two sides are connected by three rope bridges.
The good thing is, there are totally three places for fishing, and lots of turtle eggs.
All these food sources may be sufficient to some degree, but you cannot operate functionally
unless you discover the Brazil Nut Tree located on the remote upper-right side of the jungle.
If you can handle with these challenges, playing Rio Branco is totally a different experience. Amazon River is everywhere. There are three rope bridges, you keep crossing the river all the time, and this brings an experience that you're living around the mighty Amazon.
Another thing is, the bending river somehow brings the feeling that the terrain is much larger than it really is.
And it's a great enterprise to play a multiplayer game. Don't miss it...
