Summary: Great game and yes as everyone already said its a lot like a less glitchy Age of Pirates. But I would like to add something new, this game you can get cheap now if you know where to look. And second the past part of this game is it is now open source and there is a ton of user submitted updates to the game even adding new characters, weapons, ships, etc.

Summary: Comments on the basic features: Character - There is no character customization. I believe the original game gives you only 3 characters to choose from. Download and install the Combined Mod. You will have over 2 dozen characters to select from including about 8 females. You have 7 attributes, personal and ship skills (which increase with use as in Elder Scrolls games), and special abilities (personal and ship) which you can select as points are earned.
Summary: It's a very good game, but I like Pirates of the Carribean better. PoTC was the original game that this and the original Age of Pirates are sequels of. If you can put up with the many bugs it's a great game for pirate wannabes, the game engine is very buggy.
Summary: It does have it's glitches, but it is more fun than it's predecessors. Wish they had gotten to patch Sea Dogs and make it better. I liked that interface better where you don't have to be evading other pirates, mostly because it was easier to control your own game experience and when you got attacked. Here you can lose your ship from one bad move. It's graphically great and the music is nice.
Summary: If you are fan of games with an RPG element and enjoy the Golden Age of Piracy, this is a game that you will thoroughly remember for years to come. However, I have to give warning for those that have not played the previous titles from Akella including Sea Dogs and Age of Pirates. This game is much deeper that Sid Meier's Pirates! This is the game that AoP and Sea Dogs should have been, but the learning curve is very steep initially.
