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. If you disconnect from the internet it saves some start up time but don't do it to long they will forget who you are!
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. Please consider notebook dudes. Graphics engine does not utilize my NVidia GeForce card :( Probably the game is developed 2004... still efforts could be made to improve graphics.
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. The pistol/double pistols you aquire do nearly nothing. The fighting anmimation is bright and colorful, like a dinsey cartoon.
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 about Pirates! that is somehow addicting.
Summary: being a fan of the original Sid meiers Pirates I couldn't wait for the new version. while its a good game it doesn't seem quite as addicting as the original. this game is more mission driven than the original the freelancing, ship sinking, treasure fleet silver train hunting (although somewaht still part of the game) has been replaced by a scoring system that has taken a lot of the freedom away.
Summary: Este juego bastante atractivo para los "peques", posee una historia llena de horas de diversión, puedes desde encarnar batallas navales espectaculares con abordajes(un poco monótonos), a rescatar a tus familiares perdidos, encontrar tesoros escondidos... Pero creo que una de sus desventajas más destacables es que el juego no va más allá de la historia y además tienes una edad que según el juego avanza te va poniendo más dificultades en el juego y algunos de los objetivos...
Pros: Historia atractiva, graficos satisfactorios . . .
