I had fun playing this game but I am glad I didn't buy it. I would though spend $20 for it lots to do and hours of game play.

Too Trite & Simple

After being a huge fan of RPG and Action/Adventure games that used the active imagination, I am saddened by the constant failure of gaming systems. Simplicity, triteness and linear gameplay, all bundled into cinematic graphics, are the popular trend, with few exceptions.

Sid Meier's Pirates isn't one of them. The gameplay suits adolescents, not adults, nor even juveniles. What about challenge, thinking and persistence? Sid Meier's offers none of them. I gave it a 6 rating becaused I played the game for seven hours, hoping it would intensify. Nope.

I Can't Dance but Watch My Sword!

Just like the original but better. Love this game all except for the dancing. I know you need to win favor but I hate any game that forces you to beat the buttons to follow onscreen commands.

With that said, this is the Pirates game I had been waiting for.

The programmers held close to the theme of the original and created an instant classic... AGAIN!
