Summary: I started out giving it a 10 for being one of only a few PC style strategy games ported to the consoles. In the strategy resource managing area it is a 10. Unfortunately the controls are not laid out well, and there is no user manual or "comprehensive" tutorial.
Summary: I loved Tropico 3 and I was looking forward to something similar, only with Pirates! The economic side of the game seems like it has potential but quickly gets boring. You transport a number of goods from island to island over and over and over again.
Summary: This download refused to install on either my Windows XP desktop or Windows 7 laptop -- so not a computer problem, but an issue with the game itself. Do not pay money for this unless you want to literally throw away $5.
