It does work on Vista!

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.
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.
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: I have read some bad reviews and good reviews on this game before getting it..I have played it for about 3 weeks and completed the game...I think it was Great. The graphics, realism, sound, music score are superb. It is a nonlinear game with mini tasks to accomplish a main task. Definitely different from the 1st person shooter games I'm used to. The learning curve is extensive and you have to be very patient. The dialogue windows are corny but necessary.
Summary: Just an incredible game as far as graphics are concerned. I've never seen anything like it. The 3D detail is amazing. The colors are rich and contrasting; this game is a work of graphic art. Being able to explore an environtment of something like seven hugely detailed islands is the other thing about this game that stands out to me. It takes a long time to see everything! Yeah, it's darn hard to get used to the controls, but once you do, things are a lot of fun.
Summary: I just had to respond to some of the criticisms. The combat isn't very realistic, but in an RPG, it doesn't need to be. If you want realistic combat, look for a good FPS. One person said there should have been more of a movie tie-in, but the Disney buy out wasn't even official before the game was mostly complete, just a month or two before release. Besides, movie-games usually are bad, and game-movies fare about as well.
Summary: Graphics rock and game play is cool, once you get the hang of the controls, which is not so easy. Well worth the price. A game could go on for weeks from what I can tell and replay should be pretty good since there is so much to explore. Walking around can sometimes be tedious as you will find that he doesn't go very fast, even when you run. There are quick keys for points around the city but not when your outside.
Summary: From the creators of Morrowind comes Pirates. The game was originally Sea Dogs II, but Disney bought out the game. However, the game is still awesome with great graphics, good sound, and a lot of fun installed into it. The game is similar to Morrowind, and heavily encourages exploring. You can trade, or buy, or sell. You can choose the attitude and qualities that your character will have, and the entire game is very open-ended.
It's not Morrowind, but it will fulfill pirate expectations

Summary: I bought this game yesterday and was so excited to have a pirate game created by the makers of Morrowind. I knew this game was open ended plot-wise, so I had high hopes that Pirates of the Caribbean (POTC) would be Morrowind on the open seas of the Atlantic. I was wrong. In the game you cannot interact with everything on the screen.
