  • Excerpt: Sid Meier's Pirates! is well known for being a great game. So of course it would be a great idea to put it on the Wii and add motion controls, right? Wrong. You'll start the game as a young boy whose family owes a debt to an evil count. Not being able to pay the debt your family is being sold into bondage. You on the other hand have different plans. You escape your captors and swear to one day track down your family and defeat the evil count.

Sid Meier’s Pirates!

Game Boyz
23 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Chances are that no matter your age, if you’re a gamer you’ve heard of Sid Meier’s Pirates! Originally released in 1987 and ported to pretty much every platform in existence around that time, Pirates was remade in 2004 and released on PC, Xbox and PSP. The Xbox title was re-released on Xbox Live on the 360 and now it comes to the Wii. Despite being heavily into gaming even in the late ‘80’s this is the first time that I’ve had the chance to play any Pirates game.

  • Excerpt: 23rd October 2010 - I was happy when I was asked to review this game. I have grown up as a fan of pirates. In fact I have been a fan of all of Sid Meier’s games. I first played pirates on the Commodore 64. Pirates was first released in 1987. The game has evolved quite a bit since then.

Sid Meier’s Pirates! Review

Nintendo-Online
15 February 2011
  • Summary: Ahoi Piraten! „Sid Meier’s Pirates!“ segelt nun auch auf Wii, nachdem das Original bereits 1987 auf unter anderem dem PC und dem C64 erschien. 2004 legte man das Spiel in 3D neu auf und verpasste Meiers damaligen Flaggschiff einen neuen Anstrich. Ob die nun veröffentlichte Version für Nintendos Heimkonsole einer spektakulären Weltumsegelung ähnelt oder doch im Bermudadreieck landet, erfahrt ihr in unserem Review.

Sid Meier's Pirates!

  • Conclusion: A n'en pas douter, Sid Meier's Pirates! est un titre indispensable pour tous les amoureux du grand large et de la liberté d'action qui va avec. Mais cela veut-il dire pour autant que le titre est parfait ? Pas vraiment, ma bonne dame ! Les graphismes cartoons sont appréciables, mais si on zoom, on se prend des textures baveuses et grossières en pleine poire. Rien de rédhibitoire, mais ce commentaire est valable pour le reste du soft.
  • Pros: Liberté d'action, Accessible, Très prenant
  • Cons: Trop facile, Répétitif, Une adaptation sans ambition

  • Conclusion: Es ist das klassische Pirates!. Und das bedeutet, dass alle, die sich gerne strategisch fordern möchten, mit dem Titel durchaus Spaß haben werden. Aber warum sollte ein potentieller Kunde 40 Euro für diesen Wii-Titel zahlen, wenn das technisch (bessere Grafik, ohne indiskutable Ladezeiten) wie spielerisch bessere PC-Remake aus dem Jahr 2004 mittlerweile zum Spottpreis daherkommt?

Sid Meier's Pirates!

Level 7
20 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Sid Meier's Pirates har sett sina största glansdagar på andra format, men det är fortfarande ett kompetent spel som hade kunnat renoverats mycket bättre till Wii. På sin tid banbrytande med sitt fria upplägg och till synes oändliga mängd med piratrelaterade aktiviteter. Det har sina år på nacken men kan vara värt att testa för de som inte redan äger en version till annat format. Det är trots allt ett stycke tidig spelhistoria.
  • Pros: Smått beroendeframkallande, Fullproppat med saker att göra, Riktig piratstämning, Klassiskt
  • Cons: Obefintlig introduktionshjälp, Något till åren, Sämre än versioner till andra format, Fantasilöst användande av Wiikontrollerna, Segt seglande
