I would like it....if it were easy to use or worked well
29 December 2012
Summary: I recently received this game as a present and was eager to get into it. After (pretty boring, as game tutorials go) tutorials, I was ready to play, but the interface with the game is very hard to get accustomed to. Or there is some sort of bug which makes only 50% of my right or left clicks actually work. As a result, battle is near impossible. There is a steep learning curve (knowing the difference between a cutter, a sloop, etc.
Summary: Now I've played some strategy games in my day but this one has got me - I got insanely frustrated with it months ago and now it just sits in the corner but for anyone with some patience I am sure this game could be some real fun if you devote some time to learning how to play and the tutorial was unhelpful or at least for me - I wouldn't buy it unless you just feel like spending money.
Summary: When you first start, it gives you a little tutorial, but unlike most tutorials, you're spending most of your time trying to figure out things for yourself. The instructions are by no means easy to follow. I bought the game four months ago and I still don't have a clue as to how to play it!
Summary: i like the stategy move enough products to the home office to win the mission. but during the last mission of the grand campain the ports ran out of the main product. To play this game i had to use impulse because my video card didnt have pixel shader. The controls are a mess sometime you click on captain or in port you click fleet you get something else.
Summary: Well, I was excited for a summer pirate game, I loved the Pirates! series and even dabbled with the pirate MMO that's out there, but as much as I love the genre this game just misses the mark: Pros: Pretty ship models, multiple ship fleet battles, strategic map and tactical combat for the best of both worlds, and a long campaign through the Age of Sail (1600-1750).
