  • Summary: The game froze up my computer several times to the point that I had to turn it off! It may be a pirated (no pun intended) version I got on amazon.

Unclear.

  • Summary: Probably my own fault as the cheap price should have given things away but to be honest I expected about as much for such an old game. The software is great and works fine but I expected the actual game with original packaging and even the game disc is some generic aftermarket software disc. Honestly if I knew it was going to be this crap I would have just paid the extra money for the real thing or downloaded it. Not very pleased.

Entertaining, but OH those technical problems

  • Summary: I had immediate trouble with this game crashing, and with some of the characters looking like metal-skinned robots. A quick google showed that this game is notorious for having trouble running on some hardware, especially Intel integrated graphics chips -- which is said to be all Dell machines! I updated the graphics driver. It helped a little, but not much. I downloaded the patch release. It didn't make any difference.

  • Summary: Ab und zu wundere ich mich über die Bewertungen. Wenn man die immer liest freut man sich total auf ein Spiel, wird aber dann (wenn man das Spiel gekauft hat) maßlos Enttäuscht. So geschah das auch diesmal wieder. Die Spielidee finde ich genial,wer will nicht Kapitän auf einem eigenem Schiff sein.Die Umsetzung ist da wieder eine ganz andere Sache. Hier das Positive und das Negative (meiner Meinung nach) vom Spiel „Sid Meier's Pirates!".

Chance verpasst...

  • Summary: Als alter Pirat der Urversion hatte ich sehnsüchtig die neue Version erwartet. Leider musste ich bereits nach kurzer Zeit feststellen, dass das neue Spiel zwar graphisch logischerweise deutlich verbessert wurde, es ansonsten allerdings im Wesentlichen 1:1 der alten Version entspricht. Natürlich gibt es nun etliche Schnörkel wie z.B. besondere Gegenstände oder Tanzeinlagen, aber einige - zumindest von mir lieb gewonnene Details - wie z.B.
