  • Summary: Should be amazingly fun but too many bugs and abuse/cheating scenarios create too many situations frustrating and inevitable loss. Up the FUN factor and dont penalize all customers for the sins of some is critical to building a community and sustainable MMORPG... Even for genre fans.

  • Summary: I played this game both retail and beta and I have to say it can be fun at times but the game is much too repetative to be something a general audience would find vewry rewarding.

Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum

Nick72, Ciao
7 December 2008
  • Excerpt: I can't be the only person who, rather than sitting in the office filling in spreadsheets no-one reads, would rather be sailing on the open seas of the Caribbean, sweeping it clear of the Queen's enemies or waiting for a fat little merchantman to waddle into my clutches.
  • 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 .

A Ok game, but with many bugs and limited lifespan

  • 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.

A good game! But not so good as an mmorpg.

  • Conclusion: If you've enjoyed any other Pirates game, then you'll enjoy this one, but that doesnt mean its worth the £7.00 Pay to Play a month sub.

Anfangs eine nette Abwechslung

Jürgen Brandner "lordjkb", Amazon

  • Summary: Anfangs ist das Spiel eine nette Abwechslung. MMO mit dem klassischen Pirates zu verbinden finde ich als eine nette Idee, die Umsetzung ist aber mehr als mangelhaft. Die Seeschlachten sind durchwegs gut gelungen, aber die Landabenteuer sind eintönig.

Leider zu speziell und lustlos

Totti "Totti", Amazon
5 April 2008
  • Summary: Habe 2 Monate in Potbs vebracht und muss leider sagen, dass das Spiel jegliche Langzeitmotivation vermissen lässt. Die Programmierer haben viel Arbeit in die Quests und Geschichten bis zum Max-Level gesteckt , bloss dann kommt erstmal nichts mehr .. also garnichts.

Spiel mit Designschwächen

  • Summary: Ich habe das Spiel noch nicht sehr weit gespielt, aber ein paar erste Eindrücke möchte ich trotzdem niederschreiben. Am Anfang muss der Account aktiviert werden. 30 Tage Spielzeit sind inkludiert.
