This is a good game but it runs on steam.

  • Summary: Steam no longer recognizes my pass word and I don't have my original information so I have lost all my games. Even when it worked I had to wait for steam to access the internet and load their ads and enter my password every time I wanted to play.

  • Summary: The game is fun, but I have trouble getting it to boot up each time I wish to use it. It takes three or four times to get it open and operational.

  • Summary: LIKES: Naval engagements, dancing, navigation, prowling in the dark & plunder. DISLIKE: dueling, treasure hunting, missions from gov' or monks. background music is haunting; i like it! Unique Carribbean tune excellent! Too much reliance on keyboard number pad, kills the fun.

not too bad, worth $20

  • Summary: I played the orignal Commodore 64 game back in the 80s. That's why I bought this one. It is a fun little game, definetely worth $20. You could easily kill 3hrs playing this an not know it. It's not terribly exciting, and some parts could be done better.

A modernized classic.

  • Summary: While there should be little doubt that this game is a reissue of the original pirates game of the 80's, and some parts seem dated at best, it is still hours of fun. The drawbacks of the game are dated graphics, some repetitious fight scenes, and rather generic quests but there is just something...

  • Summary: Great presentation and amusing gameplay. But you quickly come to wonder why you're playing it as you repeat the same tasks over and over. Pirates lacks the structure and magic to make it anything than an okay game, and while I don't regret buying it, I couldn't recommend anyone buys it.
