  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Modern reinventions of classic games have rarely gone so well. Pirates! retains the spirit of the original and has charm and enthusiasm of which most games can only dream. A bright, bold adventure which, though essentially relatively simple, has enough to keep anyone happy for a considerable while.

Sid Meier’s Pirates!

Thunderbolt Games
27 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Pirates are great, aren’t they? The thirst for adventure, sea battles, wooden legs, sword fighting, parrots, eye patches and, of course, the lingo make up the persona of a pirate that we seem to love so very much. Ask anyone what the first thing they think of when the words ‘treasure’ and ‘rum’ are mentioned and it’s bound to be ‘pirates’ every time.

Sid Meier's Pirates!

Game Over Online
7 January 2005
  • Excerpt: Let’s get the history out of the way first. Sid Meier created the original Pirates! way back in the 80’s, and it was a nice open-ended game of piracy, where you got to battle other ships, participate in the swordfights, and even search for lost relatives and buried treasure. Now, almost 20 years later, Meier as a part of Firaxis Games is back with Sid Meier’s Pirates! , which is almost exactly the same game, but with better graphics and a friendlier interface.

Sid Meier's Pirates!

Empire Online
16 August 2006
  • Summary: Piracy is a crime - do not accept it. Unless, of course, you're playing this little exercise in high seas robbery. Perfectly capturing a life of pillaging on the ocean wave, Sid Meier's Pirates! places you in the heart of the Caribbean as a recently recruited privateer and lets you seek riches and infamy among the shipping lanes of the New World.

“Een comeback op de PSP”

  • Excerpt: Na al dat filmgeweld is het weer eens tijd geworden om me te richten op games en dit keer is het de beurt aan een wel heel leuke game in een orgineel genre. Sid Meier komt dit keer met een volledig nieuwe game, in 1987 is namelijk een eerdere Pirates! game uitgebracht en met succes, laten we hopen dat deze dus niet letterlijk en figuurlijk in het water zal vallen in vergelijking met zijn voorganger.

Sid Meier's Pirates!

JeuxVideo.fr
11 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Sid Meier's Pirates! arrive enfin sur Xbox, plusieurs mois après la version PC qui elle-même est en fait un remake d'un très vieux jeu nommé Pirates! sorti entre autres sur Amstrad CPC 6128. Proposant évidemment des graphismes revus et corrigés, l'opus sur Xbox se différencie aussi et surtout de son homologue PC par sa jouabilité. Hélas, celle-ci s'avère beaucoup moins convaincante ce qui hypothèque d'emblée les chances que le jeu a de nous séduire.

Sid Meier's Pirates!

SplashGames
1 September 2005
  • Conclusion: F�r die unversch�mte Leistung in der deutschen Version muss es leider einen gravierenden Punktabzug im Gameplay geben, denn - so Leid es mir tut - das Spiel wird dadurch unspielbar. Wer allerdings auf Englisch schalten m�chte und ein Fan des Klassikers ist, wird hier mit der Neuauflage in neuer Technik ganz gut bedient. Allerdings wird es durch die eint�nigen Missionen auch schnell langweilig.
  • Pros: Freie Karrieremöglichkeiten, Große Seekarte, Hübsche Grafik
  • Cons: Deutsche Fassung unspielbar!, Aufträge eintönig, Steuerung manchmal träge
