  • Summary: This is a "newer" version of the original and the "improvements" are not so wonderful. also I had trouble keeping it - to stay on my newer computer (but I loved the original and am very sorry it got damaged) PS if I could get another original game, I'd happily buy it.

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: Bought this as a gift for my father in law who has this whole thing for Pirates, and to be honest, I don't even know if he's played it or not

Fun game

  • Summary: This is a really fun game to play. You can plunder gold, take over towns, take on pirates, dance with girls and get your family back. And then retire fat and rich.

Couldn't get into it

Anonymous, Newegg
28 July 2008
  • Summary: I admit I just didn't get the point of this game. It felt like I was playing an open-ended game such as GTA but without the cut scenes or back story, and more limited open environment movement (it's only open when you're in your ship). The atmospheric elements just aren't there.
  • Pros: Reasonably well-conceived "stat-builder" game.
  • Cons: Some elements of the ship navigation are extremely annoying/counter-intuitive. Sounds and graphics, though updated, still look ten years past their time. No voice-over audio.

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.

S. D. Howard, Amazon
9 November 2006
  • 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...
