Conclusion: Great fun but its one of those game were you keep saying to yourself why did they do that? or why didn't they do this?.This game has all the right elements good graphics and gameplay(sea battles are great fun) but falls short of what it could have been.
Summary: Despite being a tad on the repetitive side, for what it is, Pirates is still a fun game. There's plenty to do, and it's opened ended, which means you can do whatever you like. While it's worth checking out if you were a fan of the original, I'd be hesitant to recommend the Xbox version over the PC format.
Summary: I feel that pirates is a good game with a very gentle learning curve but after you've played it after a while it does get boring because there isn't anything to do after a while Overall i think this game is good to start with but i wouldn't recommend it to a friend
Summary: Although the main premisse of the game is pretty original and it contains a lot of different minigames, you will find that you have to repeat the same processes over and over again. The game is not bad and you actually learn quite a bit about the Caribbeans and their geography but there's just a lot of repetition and you won't be playing it much after your first run because you won't be able to put up with yet another dance sequence or yet another swordfight.
Summary: Ultimately, Pirates is a simple game in an age where games are becoming more and more complicated with much more involved storylines, not that it's a bad thing. What makes this such a good game is the sheer variety involved. You play the captain of a band of pirates and you start out with your little ship which you can upgrade and trade in for bigger vessels.
