Sid Meier's Pirates!
6 October 2012
Excerpt: Since the first Pirates! game, countless titles have attempted to capture the magical, swashbuckling action—leaving bargain bins as cluttered as a pirates' graveyard. This epic remake ensures that you won't have to settle for a second-rate tale of adventure on the high seas.
Excerpt: I was kind of worried about this game before I began to play it. Sid Meier is the award winning creator of the Civilization series (as it says so sweetly on the box). Now, back in the day, I tried out Civilization. Granted, I was nine or ten, but it was still a computer game after all.
Excerpt: I haven’t played the original (even if I actually owned a C64 computer), but as people say it was pure addiction. Sid Meier’s Pirates! was first released in 1987 and is still famous for its addictive gameplay, which included elements of strategy, action and role-playing genres.
Pros: Charming visuals, great gameplay, relaxing and entertaining
Cons: Monotonous music, replayability lost after many hours of gameplay
Excerpt: Pirates! doesn't let you play as the dirty, honor-less dogs that probably really roamed the high seas, but who wants to play as them anyway? Sid Meier takes us through a delightful rendition of what pirates should have been; driven by passion for love, revenge, and gold.
Summary: The original Sid Meier's Pirates! is one of the famed designer's most beloved games, which is saying a lot. After all, Meier is responsible for some of the greatest games ever made, most notably Civilization. Sid Meier's Pirates!
Pros: Engrossing, addictive, and fun blend of action and strategy., Open-ended gameplay., Fast, exciting pace., Colorful, beautiful graphics., Charming sound and music.
Cons: Minor stability issues., No multiplayer., Will cause you to lose sleep.
Conclusion: Addictive, cute, clever, subtle and multi-layered, Sid Meier's Pirates! is exactly what all us cannon-toting, swashbuckling Errol Flynn-a-likes have been waiting for, and with such enjoyable longevity it's something you'll be playing for a while to come.
Summary: "Hra Sid Meier's Pirates! Je výbornì zpracovaná strategická adventura, ve které se ocitnete v roli pirátského kapitána, se kterým se pokusíte získat velké jmìní a slávu. Vypracujte se až na nejobávanìjšího piráta v historii. To ale samozøejmì nebude jednoduchý úkol.
Conclusion: Natürlich findet man bei diesem Spiel auch kleinere Kritikpunkte - wie die fehlende Sprachausgabe. Allerdings wird das Gameplay nicht durch diese Punkte gestört. Das Spielprinzip und die ganzen Teilbereiche bzw. Minigames machen genauso viel Spaß wie damals.
