  • Conclusion: Otherwise, Pirates! is a great success on Xbox, and this game is the kind of thing you can spend hours playing at a time, or just jump in and out of as you wish. The balanced mixture of the free-roaming sailing with the structured nature of the other minigames makes for an absorbing experience.
  • Pros: Sailing., Fighting., Romancing., Yarr!
  • Cons: Occasional slowdown., Repetitive soundtrack.
