Positives and negatives..
6 March 2014
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: 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 bad about it (GLITCCHHHYYYY).
Beware of Bootleg copy put out by a UK company called UBI Soft Exclusive

Summary: I have played Pirates of the Caribbean on Xbox, and I really enjoyed the game. But as you advanced to higher levels of play, the Xbox would lock up. So I was wanting to but the Bethesda's Pirates of the Caribbean PC version. Its is the same game. I recently purchase this NEW game from a 3rd party in Amazon.com. When I got the game, I was surprised by the cover, it had a different company name, of UBI Soft Exclusive in big letters along the botton of the packaging.
Summary: This was purchased for a child, at the request of that child. Personally, I don't care for the game. It was clearly scraped together at the last minute to exploit the film - it's a generic pirate game with no distinguishing characteristics except Johhny Depp on the jewelcase cover. I rather resent that. In addition, it performs poorly with Windows XP, and there is no patch that I can locate.
Summary: I want to make clear that this is essentially Sea Dog's 2 and has little or nothing to do with the movie Priates of the Caribbean. However, if you want a down to earth, well rounded, ship/land based naval game set in the sixteenth century; POTC will deliver. You begin the game as an unknown freebooter with a small ship. You follow the onscreen script as a sort of tutorial and learn how to move about on land, fight with a sword and pick up items.
Game by itself is buggy, but there are some great mods!!!

Summary: Like many other people have said before me, this game (by itself) is very buggy. You will have to deal with lost save files, abrubt crashes and other issues if you play this game as-is out of the package. But there is HOPE! There have been some great 'mods' released on several forums that not only correct the bugs but also add new characters (like the Johnny Depp movie character), new missions, and new weapons. Check out the Pirates Ahoy site for more info.
Summary: If I had to choose a second life to live I would choose the life of one of the pirates in this game. Everything from the thrilling battle scenes to the great soundtrack is amazing. after i beat it once i just fooled around in the pirate world wich is just as fun as following a story line. the only difference is your creating your own story line. if u liked the movie, BUY THE GAME!!!!
Very good Graphics, especially the water, and Ships

Summary: I don't understand some of the reviewers. This is a good game ,once you get the hang of it. You gamers need to add some mods to your game, as one of the reviewers so stated. Go to the website and download some stuff, and you will change your mine. You can also go into the main folder and change some things. Its easy to do. Once you do these things , this can be one of the most entertaining game to play. It is for me.
Summary: Okay, sure, PotC is a buggy game. Yes, DisneyBucks caused the release to be rushed. NO, Bethesda did not design this game, Akella, the Russian game developer who designed Sea Dogs did. This game was supposed to be Sea Dogs II and no one was more dismayed than Akella when they saw what they had to do to their beautiful work. They did what they could, but in the time alloted, they unfortunately could NOT perform miracles. Enter the average gamer, aka MYSELF.
The graphics are great. Tis a Shame the Game Won't Play

Summary: I finally got a working (?) copy of the game after over a month of searching and waiting. It arrived Friday evening and it is now Sunday evening and the only part of the game I've actually seen is the splash screens for loading and the movie files. I've loaded, unloaded, reloaded and tweaked all weekend. I've upgraded drivers, checked my system to make sure I'm well within requirements (and am) and, as of this moment, the only part of the game that plays are the videos.
