Just old fashioned fun

Homer Jay "Homer", Amazon

  • Summary: Within minutes of installing this on my windows 7 machine, I was up and running and playing. Controls are very intuitive, and gameplay is deceptively easy. Fun, and even my 11 year old enjoyed it.

One of the best ship games out there

Cr2, Amazon
23 December 2010
  • Summary: Product by Amazon from iNetVideo: As described. Very pleased with the representation and actual material of the product. All the pictures in the description were accurate and the box included the Cd in a nice glossy 2 disc flat pack case, the thick binded 143 page game booklet/instruction manual, and the cool fold out map of the Caribbean that I had to have! The price was awesome! And the shipping faster than I expected. Very pleased with the marketing of the game.

Very Pleased

  • Summary: After moving, I could no longer find this game in my collection. Then I bought a DVD version from another group and it wasn't the same. They substituted their own videos instead of using 2K's and it crashed the software several times. Finally convinced I needed the original two disc set, my search started. Finally, after contacting several Amazon.com merchants, I was able to find exactly what I was looking for. Brand new, in the box, sealed from 2005.

Very Fun Game From Another Age - Recommended!

C. Hill "CFH", Amazon
24 May 2010
  • Summary: We played Pirates! back on the old Commodore 64 and it was one of our favorite games of all time, so we were thrilled when we saw that there was a release for the PC. This plays a lot like the original game and is still an exceptionally fun game. The basic goal of the game is to rise as high as possible by building a reputation, wealth, and completing missions for various leaders (governors, priests, etc).

I don't really understand all the negativity

General Pete, Amazon
26 March 2009
  • Summary: I will not say that this game does not have its problems the most annoying aspect of which is dancing with the governor's daughter 500 times (that's not an exaggeration I counted) there is also the issue of the repetition of the vast majority of the cut scenes. However I will say for all of its faults the game is fun to play. A couple of hours spent blasting Dutch or Spanish shipping is never a waste of time.

Sid Meier's Pirates!: Live the Life

straightshooter99, Ebay
15 May 2008
  • Summary: Sid Meier is a great developer and this game is no exception. You won't find a super deep strategy game with tons of micro-management here. It's essentially a collection of mini games that allows you to explore the life of a pirate in the 1600s. It's easy to jump into, and the learning curve is pretty small. It could easily be played by older players and younger players alike and has a very light hearted cartoonish appearence.

Pirates still fun after all these years.

J. Donovan, Amazon
10 October 2007
  • Summary: I had recently purchased a poor substitute from Atari a few months back, thinking it was the updated version of Sid Meier's classic game I used to play on the Sega or Commodore 64 as a kid. It soon became obvious that I had been saddled with a plastic paper weight. But it drove me to look a little harder for an updated version of Pirates!
