Not The Hit Title I Expected

Judah, Amazon
3 May 2013
  • Summary: Saw accolades and recommendations for this game, so I bought it. Did not live up to the hype. Graphics are something out of an early 1990's PC game, controls are simplistic, and after you spend a few hours figuring out the game, everything is super-easy. Circle around for ship-to-ship, and ram the other guy to fight the captain using the x-button and rapier to push him back. Take ships, sell stuff, sign on more crew, dance sometimes... that's about it.

A very disappointing port of a good game

James McCain, Amazon
4 May 2011
  • Summary: I really enjoyed Sid Meier's Pirates! on the XBOX and so was looking forward to taking the same game on the go with the PSP version. I ended up disappointed because the PSP version isn't nearly as good. The main problems are the much smaller screen and the significantly longer load times. This results in my single biggest complaint: ship-to-ship combat takes place on a zoomed in version of the world map, rather than on a much more detailed small patch of ocean.

repetitive and too easy

Fernando C. Cardoso, Amazon

  • Summary: in two words: repetitive and boring. the gaming repeats 4 or 5 actions all the time without any evolution happening. u got a new ship and well u keep dominating the word as before. the game is really boring and the attempts to introduce some variation (dancing with the governors daughter or searching for thesaurus inland) just bring more repetition to the game. the graphics are really bad too without any kind of inovation.

Strategy in need of an update

  • Summary: This game is a media darling, but I couldn't help but feel like the gameplay and the graphics were old and outdated. The game seemed like something I would play on a PC in the mid 1990s. I know it's a remake of an older game, but I would have liked to have seen some more modern gameplay elements.

Not as slick as the PC version

KendoPt4, Amazon
12 June 2008
  • Summary: I thought this would be an exact port, but many of the game play elements are far less polished than the PC game. I really enjoyed the PC version, but this one was a struggle to like. Only play this one if you don't have a PC.

At least it's only thirty bucks

Tyler B. Joyner, Amazon
19 February 2007
  • Summary: I bought this game based on all the good reviews it received, so after playing it I felt obliged to write one of my own, so other people like me don't make the same mistake. The graphics and music are fine. Not mind blowing, but still respectable for a psp. My serious problem with this game is how little there is of it. After about an hour or two to learn the ropes I quickly amped the game all the way up to its hardest level.

Naja

Mertin, Amazon

  • Summary: Also Anfangs sicherlich abwechslungsreich und spannend! Schätze finden, verschollene Verwandschaft finden, Schiffe kapern etc. Aber spätestens wenn man merkt, dass jeder Hafen das gleiche Bild bietet: Leute anheuern, mit Tavernenbesuchern sprechen, Handel und Reparatur des Schiffes etc. hörts wirklich auf! Auf Dauer einfach langweilig und unsinnig!
