Summary: The game I ordered made it here in about a week after the confirmation was sent, so about 2 weeks total after order was placed I got it, but the disc wasn't in the condition that the seller said it was in on the review, I paid more money for it because he claimed it was in better condition, it hasn't affected the gameplay so far but those things tend to pop up right when the game gets good, but I world average this out to about a three star experience
Summary: Lots of people saying it doesn't work on Vista without some patch, but it does if you do the following. Right click on the desktop icon, go to properties, then compatibility, check the box and choose 'run this program in compatibility mode for windows XP'
Summary: I've had this game for years, and I can still say today that I absolutely LOVE this game. I've played it through a couple times and I still want to play it again. Sure the graphics aren't amazing, but I still like the way they look. The storyline is fun, although I wish it was longer. The sea battles are AMAZING. It's got to be my favorite part of the game. Especially the fort battles. It feels just about as realistic as it can possibly get on a PC game.
Summary: I am still unsure what to rate this game. I think it deserves a 7 for its graphics and sailing game play. I found this game incredibly challenging. I might not have been playing it correctly but I had to save continuously and because the character is so weak in combat at the start it was so hard to board and take ships. I really dislike the default controls. In fact there is a lot that is I am still unsure what to rate this game.

Summary: I'm sure all of you were really excited to pick up a copy of this game after the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie came out right? But is this game worth getting? Find out in this review! Plot: In this game, you play as a pirate named Nathaniel and you have to go on a series of quests for a certain person. Gameplay: For a 2003 game, its got outstanding graphics for this type of game.
Summary: I remember 3 or 4 years ago I walked into a Mediaworld in Terni and saw this game on the shelf. Having seen Dead Mans Chest 2 days before and having enjoyed Curse of The Black Pearl immensly I couldn't wait to buy this! And for only 7 euros it was a bargain...However when I popped in the game and installing it i realized....This isnt Jack Sparrow...
Summary: Great game, once the controls were mastered. Extremely open-ended with a LOT of gameplay. Graphics are seamless and wonderful. Ship battles are exciting and a real challenge. Encountering storms is the most challenging aspect as it is difficult to master sailing in them. All in all, with the amazing graphics, many side quests, customizable characters, and overall fun factor, this is a great game if you have the system to run it.
