  • Summary: Well i grew up watching movies like the 'Crimson pirate' and loved the flair and swashbuckling atmosphere they had when i watched them in the early 80's and so i was looking forward to this game with eager anticipation, but unfortunately the game,although i did find parts enjoyable, isnt in way...

Nice graphics but...

  • Summary: Firts things first - I am sailing in this game for 3 weeks now, and must say that I don't like what I have found so far. First of all - why the hell I have to wait for loading on almost every step? I go to shop - load, I go to magistrate - load etc, etc.

  • Summary: Lets cut to the chase - if you've ever played a game called "Seadogs" then you've played the land based bit of POTBS (including all the interminable clumping round towns to see people in different shops etc) - and if you've ever played a game called "Age of Sail" - then you've played the sea based...

POTBS

  • Summary: This game is shockingly complex and offers very little in the way of in-game tutorials to help noobs (like me) understand how to navigate what is a very large and complicated universe. If you're looking for a WoW experience, you've come to the wrong place.

Pirates goes Multiplayer???

Iffrit, Amazon

  • Summary: Zunächst scheint das Konzept interessant: Endlich mal ein anderes Genre, und ein interessantes dazu. Unglücklicherweise ist die Umsetzung nur teilweise gelungen. Grafik und Sound sind in der Tat nett, gerade der Schiffskampf ist optisch sehr gelungen.

Es hätte gut werden können...

  • Summary: ...wenn mann an der Langzeitmotivation gearbeitet hätte. Das Spiel macht ca. 1-2 Wochen viel Spass. Genau solange bis mann alle Basics beherrscht, nahzu alles gesehen hat und sich das erste mal fragt was mann eigentlich mit max. Level macht. Da wären zur Auswahl Wirtschaft, Questen und PvP.

Spiel mit verschenktem Potential

  • Summary: Schon als ich einen Blick in das 28 Seiten "dicke" Handbuch und in den Schiffsführer mit "stolzen" 10 Schiffen warf, hatte ich bereits ein mulmiges Gefühl. Im Handbuch werden viele Themen gar nicht, oder viel zu kurz behandelt.
