Pirates!

The Gamers Temple
30 September 2006
  • Excerpt: Pirates is a game that gives a you a tall ship and sets you loose to pillage, plunder, or defend the 17th Century Caribbean – the path that you follow is entirely up to you. This type of open-ended gameplay is more common in PC games than on consoles, so it’s not too surprising that Pirates is actually a PC game that has made its way to the Xbox. Luckily for Xbox gamers, it also happens to be a quite good PC game that has made its way to the Xbox.

  • Excerpt: A real-time strategy, role-playing, action/adventure Johnny Depp-ish epic, similar to its PC counterpart released last year (itself a remake of an 80's era game), but so thoroughly overhauled, so mindfully tweaked to console controller conventions, that it seems like it was born to be on Xbox.

Pirates! Xbox Review

DarkZero
12 August 2005
  • Conclusion: Pirates is a gripping game containing an exciting mix of genres. It is an adventure game containing the thought and planning of a RTS, mixed with the collecting aspect of platformers, then there is the stealth of the Splinter Cell with a small touch of a RPG thrown in for good measure. Couple this with a multitude of tasks to accomplish and a few mini-games and you’ve got a very appealing title that should appeal to a vast range of gamers out there.

Sid Meiers Pirates!

16 September 2006
  • Summary: Endlich hat es der zeitlose Klassiker wieder in unsere Wohnzimmer geschafft. "Pirates!" ist eine absolut gelungene Umsetzung auf die Xbox. Bis auf den Bug ist alles reibungslos umgesetzt worden. Dieser Schnitzer kostet das Spiel jedoch eine höhere Wertung. Die endlosen Möglichkeiten des Spiels lassen die Herzen der Fans höher schlagen. Das zwanglose Umherschippern, Entern, Brandschatzen und so weiter macht immer wieder richtig Spaß. "Pirates!

Half-Life 2

Spieletipps.de
16 September 2006
  • Summary: Half-Life 2 ist das erwartete Action-Highlight. Vor allem die neue Physik-Engine weiß zu gefallen. Es ist einfach ein Riesenspaß alles kurz und klein ballern zu können. Die Grafik und der Sound überzeugen ebenso und fesseln stundenlang vor dem PC. Es ist einfach genial, wenn man eine neue Waffe bekommt, ein Rätsel löst oder ins nächste Level vorstößt.
