Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat – Review

GameCritics.com
17 July 2002
  • Excerpt: Looking at recent releases, there must have been some kind of competition among game developers to release B-class adventure games starring female characters. Two discs with cheesy titles hit shelves within a month of each other, and they're very similar in a lot of ways. While Drakan: The Ancients' Gate was first to stores, Pirates: The Legend Of Black Kat was right on its heels.

  • Excerpt: Pirates is very hit and miss in the visuals department. There are moments where the game looks great, and just when you are about to say how great things look - something happens that make you bite your lip. It is obvious that Kat is supposed to be the main attraction in the game. From her sleek, graceful moves to her skimpy leather outfit, Kat just screams 'sexy pirate chick' - until you see her bowlegged walk, then you just have to have a quick chuckle.

  • Excerpt: On the whole, it’s been pretty slim pickin's in the arena of solid pirate-themed games (the excellent and funny Escape from Monkey Island being a recent, strange exception)---luckily, Westwood Studios has come along and saved our bored gaming posteriority (once again) with Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat .

  • Summary: With a little more time and effort Westwood could have had a massive hit on their hands. Sadly, mainly due to a lack of enemies, it falls flat.

  • Excerpt: Hils på Katarina, en frisk ung kvinde med en naturlig og sund interesse for mord, brand og plyndringer. Katarina er en af den slags kvinder, der når hun siger nej, ikke bare mener nej. hun mener “nej-eller-jeg-brænder-din-landsby-ned-dræber-din-mor-og-skyder-dit-kæledyr”. Lyder hun ikke fantastisk? Nu får du chancen for at tilbringe masser af blodige timer sammen med hende.

  • Excerpt: Når gamle spilklassikere som Pacman eller Pong udgives i nye opdaterede versioner, er det som at få besøg af gamle venner man ikke har set i 20 år. De screenshots jeg på forhånd havde set fra Legend of Black Kat mindede mig i nogen grad om det hæderkronede Pirates!, et spil som sled min Commodore 64 ned til sokkeholderne engang sidst i firserne.
