Conclusion: This is a worthy successor to the Pirates Franchise, fun battles, buried treasure, beautiful women and lost cities. there were only two things I didn’t like, when the wind was against me and the surprising lack of parrots.
Excerpt: At the start of the game you are introduced to your family your character and your enemy baron Raymond when they get taken away because they are in debt but your Character tries to escape and succeeds now on with the review.
If you like pirates, you will not be dissapointed.

Excerpt: I like to think that i am a big fan of Pirates. The fims i am not such a fan of, but the whole idea in general. When i saw this game i thought that i had to have it. It took a while to get it, as i am rather cheap, and its not the easiest to get hold of cheap.
Excerpt: This is a fun game to play with lots of swash buckling action and the chance to use every pirate stereotype phrase that you can think of. In the game you play a pirate who carries out a campaign of revenge against the Spanish who wronged you and the objective of the game is to amass as much wealth...
Summary: I was a huge fan of this game when it first came out on the Amiga and even resorted to buying a second hand 1200 last year just so i could play this game again (among others!). Anyway i am very impressed with this new version, it has all the gameplay of the original and hasn't been changed so much...
Summary: Sid Meier's Pirates, very cool it allows you to properly experience the life of a pirate in 1600's carribean. The gameplay is fantastic you can handpick your targets from french raiders to spanish treasure ships.
Sid Meier's Pirates - Good or Bad? Or Brilliant? Yes. Brilliant.

Summary: I thought this was an awsome game, the way that you can play it any way you like, and there are just so many things that you can do, maybe be a good guy and protect transport ships and use gathered information to get the best deal for goods in order to make cash, or go for the more Piraty (yar!
Summary: Game is overall rather fun but there are some parts that are difficult to understand and there may be a problem in the future that some XBoxes AKA the 360 won't be able to support this game for much longer
