A "detailed" Pirates game

Summary: Very detailed game that should provide a more hard-core and detail oriented person some time-alone fun for many, many hours. Visually exciting with a steep learning curve, this game offers the opposite of the "Sid Meier's Pirates" gaming work load. Very hands on and all the small details are on you, the gamer. Avoid the easy-to-aquire cheats: Will ruin the gaming experience. I purchased the game for a low price, so overall good buy.
Summary: Yes, this game needed a few more months of debugging. Yes, it was probably rushed to market to coincide with the movie, and Bethesda should receive 50 lashes for putting revenue ahead of quality. (Consider buying a used copy rather than a new one!) But the bottom line is - this game is a Masterpiece. It's a "Five Star" game with one star subtracted for bugs. (See my workarounds, below).
ATTENTION RPG Players, patience & saving, wins the game!

Summary: I just completed BETHESDA Softworks "Pirates of the Caribbean". and it is an awesome game. The 4 stars is because of the limited land exploration & very dufficult early character development (survival) Patience and attention to your environment will lead you to hours of fun. Plan your work/quest, Work/quest your plan!!!!
Summary: Pirates of the Caribbean is a game which can be entertaining and frustrating. While playing this game after hours and hours; I noticed that there are a lot bugs in the game. Sometimes while playing, the game would freeze, so I recommend that you save often. But once you get past the gliches and bugs in the game, it's a lot of fun. You begin as a pirate named Nathaniel who's reputation can vary. Depending on your deeds, your reputation can become spoiled or neutral.
Summary: I've got to drop a star off my earlier rating. I played through until the big battle with the Black Pearl. I have no idea what happens after this point in the game, because I have been unable to complete the battle--not because it is too difficult, but because the game has crashed EVERY TIME I've tried to fight through the battle.
