Pirates: Duels on the High Seas – Nintendo DS

  • Conclusion: Pirates: Duels on the High Seas is a game that could have potential. It has a lot of the right ingredients, but they all get executed wrong or ignored, leaving us with a game that operates in a constant state of dullness. While it provides a little bit of entertainment for a while, the gag quickly wears off thanks to the design, making it a hard title to recommend even at its budget retail price of $20.
  • Pros: Decent concept, Good price
  • Cons: Lackluster sound & graphics, Poor execution, Weird controls, Weak linear level design

  • Excerpt: When Pirates: Duels on the High Seas arrived on my desk for review, I have to honestly say that I didn’t know what this game had to offer. This latest Oxygen Published title for the Nintendo DS was nowhere near my radar when I got it. Well I have to say after some time with the title that I was somewhat pleasantly surprised by what it has to offer, but the game is not without some issues.

  • Excerpt: The life of a pirate is often glamourised, but I don’t think it was all it was cracked up to be. Spending months out at sea, risking life and limb for booty and then leaving it on some deserted island seems somewhat stupid to me. Then there’s the fact that you’re a wanted criminal and if captured will most likely end up dead. Still, pirates are big business; just looking at the success of the recent Pirates of The Caribbean trilogy is enough to tell you that.
