Weak

Too racially charged and combat is weak.

This game was on it's way to getting a 6 or 7 rating from me. The crafting and character development was decent, despite having a little bit of a weak combat system. However, on the second island I ran into some of the white NPCs that referred to the black native NPCs as "Spearchuckers" along with other familiar sounding epithets. I love a game that isn't afraid to get gritty and add extra realism to their environment, but they couldn't find a better way of doing that? After a few minutes of thinking it annoyed me enough to put the game right back in it's sleeve and dump it in the mail. Being a voodoo pirate is pretty useless too, despite how cool the skill descriptions made it sound. All in all, you can definitely find better.
