Summary: I was not impressed with what I received. It is a cheap little paper cd holder that has the pirates print on it. I wouldn't pay $30 for it again. The game was fine though, I didn't experience any issues with it. But with what you get, it didn't impress me at all.
Summary: This was not what I expected at all. There are dance sequences where you have to dance with someone, and it is just kind of lame in my opinion. And the travelling from port to port is not a lot of fun. I gave this game to a local charity.
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.
Summary: Sid Meier has gotten to the point in the gaming industry where all he has to do is attach his name to a game and it will sell. Pirates! is a game that offers so much promise, but it never really quite gets there. Yes, the game did provide me with several hours of enjoyment.
Summary: Great game and loads of retro-fun. So... why only 3 stars? The company I ordered from, Zoverstocks (normally very reliable), have had this listed as 'dispatched' now for 2 weeks+. This is/was intended as a birthday gift *sigh*.NOT RECEIVED!
Summary: If you're like me and thought...'you know what, I wouldn't mind having my own Pirate ship fleet and make other pirates and nations fear my every move, plus I like pirates ever since I saw Jack Sparrow on the big screen' then you may be inclined to buy this game...
