Pirates of Black Cove

Cheat Happens
27 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I recently took a trip overseas. More than half of the trip was completely over water, so there was nothing to look at, and it was one of the most mind numbing and boring experiences I've ever had the umm...pleasure of being a part of. Then, three months after getting off the plane, I was dumped back into the experience, but this time I never left my office.

  • Excerpt: If you can say one thing about Pirates of Black Cove, it's that it's got a certain charm. You'll find it in the hundreds of toe-curling puns littered throughout the game's version of the Caribbean, you'll find it in the campy but endearing voiceovers of three playable heroes with names like Walker le Planc, and you'll find it in the jaunty rhythms that keep time as you hunt down booty over land and sea.

Europa Universalis

Gameguru Mania
18 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Europa Universalis is a historically accurate RTS game that recreates 300 years of history from the Age of Discovery in 1492 to Napoleon's rise to power in 1792. The major nations depicted as player countries in the grand campaign (1492-1792) are Spain, Portugal, France, England, Austria, Russia, Denmark-Norway, Sweden, The Ottoman Empire, and Poland-Lithuania. Each has its own particular advantages and disadvantages, and they all play very differently.

Pirates of Black Cove review

Gamedot
16 August 2011
  • Conclusion: In the end, Pirates of Black Cove has a jolly style that looks good at first, but quickly wears thin. It strikes me as a game that some might enjoy, perhaps if they have more patience than I do. Nonetheless an asking price of £15 for this minimal offering is simply too much.
  • Pros: Battles entertaining at first. Chirpy tone.
  • Cons: Excessively simple. Repetitious. Long, endless, voyages...

Pirates of Black Cove Review | Clearly Not for Landlubbers

Dealspwn
31 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Pirates of Black Cove is stuffed with charm, cartoonish humour and excellent arcade naval combat that provides a lot of fun, once you get going; but it's let down by its land combat, repetitive quests and backtrack padding.
  • Pros: Ship to ship combat is great, Nice depth to ship upgrades and new models, Roaming the open sea is a lot of fun
  • Cons: Insipid land combat, There's a lot of needless padding, Takes a while to get going

Pirates of Black Cove

PC GURU
21 February 2012
  • Excerpt: A Nitro Games előző hajózós játéka, az East India Company elég nagy csalódás volt – a finn srácok most próbáltak szelídebb vizekre evezni, ám sajnos az EIC legcsúnyább démonától nem tudtak megszabadulni...
  • Pros: Olcsó, humoros, kalózós-kardozós-hajózós, amit alapvetően szeretünk...
  • Cons: ...csak ne lenne a játékmenet az unalomig leegyszerűsítve

Pirates of Black Cove - Recensione

Everyeye Network
8 November 2011
  • Summary: Un'occasione sprecata questo Pirates of Black Cove. L'idea di fondo è intrigante e la simulazione della vita da pirata dei Caraibi -perlomeno nelle intenzioni- è assolutamente affascinante, ma non è stata accompagnata da una degna realizzazione tecnico/artistica. Troppi elementi lasciati incompiuti, non approfonditi e appena accennati (come ad esempio lo stesso impianto RTS) ne fanno un titolo deludente sotto quasi ogni aspetto.

  • Summary: Arrr! Landratten und Kajütenschrubber aufgepasst. Jetzt gibt es ein Spiel, mit dem es auch Euch endlich möglich sein soll, sich wie echte Piraten zu fühlen. Das bedeutet natürlich absolut keine Hygiene, die hohe Wahrscheinlichkeit an exotischen Krankheiten zu sterben und die pure Abstinenz von Frauen, die keine Geschlechtskrankheiten übertragen. Wie? Das gefällt Euch verweichlichten Gürtelträgern nicht?
  • Pros: Karibik Setting, Humorvolle Dialoge, Seegefechte, Upgrade System

Pirates of Black Cove im Test

  • Excerpt: Was ist das Lieblingsessen von Riesenkraken? Fish and Ships! Wenn Sie sich jetzt nicht brüllend auf dem Boden wälzen oder wenigstens verschmitzt grinsen, dann sollten Sie diesen Pirates-Klon weiträumig umschiffen.

  • Cons: detailarme Städte und NPCs, spärliche Effekte, viel zu einfache Schlachten, praktisch keine Herausforderung, … der nicht immer zündet, spartanisch inszeniert, nerviges Gelatsche in Städten, noch nervigeres Gelatsche in Land-Missionen, keine Politik, … aber wenig damit anzufangen, kein Wiederspielwert, Land-Missionen mitunter gähnend langweilig, ödes Schippern zum Missionsziel, … hilft aber kräftig mit, indiskutable Wegfindung, … die sich in der Praxis kaum unterscheid...
