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.
Summary: Steel yourself to face foes that no captain has ever bested before, in this perilous adventure of the enchanted worlds. Collect weapons, pick up crewmen, amass great riches and explore un-chartered seas.
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.
Conclusion: it’s a real shame but the game is severely lacking in several areas with simple polishes and finishing touches completely missing from the game. It’s like having a house with no furniture or a console with no pads, a great item but incomplete without other components.
Pros: Controls are solid, Power-ups are good, Multiplayer is fun
Cons: Gameplay isn’t as fun as it could be, No new power ups or weapons, Lack of innovation, no Wi-fi or connectivity
