  • Excerpt: Swashbucklers: Blue vs. Grey is an oddball historical hybrid -- superficially similar in its port-to-port mechanics to the classic Sid Meier's Pirates!, yet set against the pseudo-historical backdrop of the Union Blockade of the American Civil War. It's partly traditional port-hopper, partly role-playing game, partly action-oriented fighting game... and, sadly, it bites off a bit more than it can chew.

  • Excerpt: Abraham Grey is one character that has a ton of potential in the video game world. Half cowboy, half pirate and with a split personality - his inner voice talks to him as a kind of tutorial - the concept behind Grey's character is fantastic.

  • Excerpt: I love games about pirates. I also love games about the Civil War. If you give me a well-executed title that prominently features either of those two things, I will flash a radiant smile and love you for a lifetime. Swashbucklers: Blue vs. Grey, a recent release from Atari, mixes those two elements thoroughly. You'd probably expect me to love it to pieces, and I certainly had high hopes when I started playing. Then, at every turn, the game figuratively spat in my face.
