  • Summary: Far better game then many of these reviews suggest. One of the very few games where you can run start to run an extremely successful business just a few hours in. Very good job Flying Labs. Swordplay needed some work and there should have been more bonuses for being one of the few utilizing obscure ports, giving them actual value.

  • Summary: This game is an absolutely dreadful waste of time. This game shares the grindfest gameplay model of most MMO`s complete with forced PVP against players many levels higher than you and with no chance of winning.When you lose a forced PVP fight against these higher level people you items and ships which takes days or even weeks of mind numbing grinding to replace. If you enjoy grinding for days or weeks just to able to pvp for 20 or 30 minetes then you`ll love this game.

  • Excerpt: "...as the community of the pirates - the Brethren of the Coast. If you decide to go for a country - you get to choose between Naval Officer, Privateer and Freetrader. The pirates on the other hand have a choice of Bucanneer or Cuthroats. Despite the names all of five character types are quite capable of running out the guns and leading bloody sword fights on the enemies quarter-deck. Set up is easy. character face and clothing allows characterisation, ...
  • Pros: Interesting concept with a player based economy, lots of quests and player vs player PVP
  • Cons: Population imbalance can mean that some nations are almost impossible to play .

Arrrr This be a Game For me

  • Conclusion: If are looking for a game that needs more brain than speed and you don't have to play 16 hours a day to be a part of, this has got to be it!! The game is Beautiful I think it has the right balance of crafting (business),Roll play (Arr ye gets ta fight the French and Spanish) PVP (fight the French and Spanish ) And The ships look like ships and even act quite like them. A game for adults maybe more than kids.

A Ok game, but with many bugs and limited lifespan

AvengerUK, Play.com
10 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Ive been playing the game since beta, into pre-boarding and now launch. Yes, at first its fun, new and a change to your usual MMO. However, after many missions which look and feel exactly the same - shooting ships in a similar fashion 100's of times, you can imagine that it starts to ware off.

  • Conclusion: First this is Vista compatable, so rejoice and unlike LOTRO/WoW there isn't a heavy process of making sure it works via firewall or administrator.
