Summary: Age of Booty is perhaps the least complicated Real Time Strategy game you may every play - and it is more the better for it. You take over a single ship sailing on a grid map in an effort to take over a certain amount of cities before your enemies do. As you collect floating crates, destroy villages, and capture cities you will collect one of three resources (gold, wood or mead,) that you utilize to upgrade your ship (speed, armor/HP, and cannons/attack) and your...
Summary: I don't know why but more arcade titles that focus at least half of its gameplay on the multiplayer should have multiplayer trials, (cough Death Tank). The biggest reason I purchased this game was due to this feature. Not knowing if the game would work or not, due to sub par broadband (satellite), I used the trial to play online. Games were fun, mostly lag free although some lag noticable (my end), and I was able to successfully join them.
Summary: This is a great RTS for the console. The team dynamic in multiplayer is incredibly fun. It is simple and easy to learn but there are many strategic facets which makes the game continually enjoyable for many games to come.
Summary: The genius of this game is that they have taken the well-worn formula of standard Real Time Strategy (RTS) games and streamlined it down to its bare essentials, which means it is simple to learn (but not master) and can be played in 10-15 minutes, rather than 1-2 hours for a typical RTS game. Rather than micro-managing lots of different units, in AoB you only have one ship to control.
Summary: I don't know why everyone doesn't own this game. Between this and Bionic Commando Rearmed, why play anything else when you have friends over? Also happens to have the greatest theme music ever.
Summary: ARGGG! If ye love pirates, and good ol' strategy then look no further. Age Of Booty be the game for you, ARGGGGG. The game is quite FUN!, from the single player levels to the competitive multiplayer maps. The map editor allows for infinite possibilities when it comes to maps, also sharing maps is extremely easy. The strategy is intertwined between creative characters and enjoyable music. Hours and hours of fun.
Summary: My buddies have been coming over and playing this every Friday as a standing event. We've put hours and hours into this game. It's easy to play but has loads of depth when you're playing with teammates who can coordinate and listen. We usually play 2 on 2 on our couch but we'll occasionally go online as a team and wreak havoc against other teams via its team-based matching system (similar to Halo3). For $10, you simply can't get a better multiplayer experience.
