I never played Sid Miers Pirates before. My friends said it was awsome for the computer so I tried it for the psp. At first I didnt like that much cause I didnt really know what to do to become a good pirate. I was gonna return it cause I had it for 3 days and I still did not know how to become a good pirate but my friend played and said how to capture cities do land battles find treasure dance with the Governers daughter it was so fun I could not stop I cant believe I underestimated this awesome game!!! I recamend this game to everybody who has a psp but if you do not no what you are doing it could be really fustrating and boring. Im gonna go play Sid Miers Pirates and get Black beards tresure!!!!

Listen Sid, This is a great update to a legendary game. The "Sandbox style" play is perfect for all those that dream of sailing into Tortuga with our standards flying high. But for the love of God! If I had to suffer through one more ballroom minigame just to find out where my "darn" Uncle is!! Well...

Here's the thing. The game has hours of enjoyment and tons of replayability. Simply defeating all of the most wanted pirates in the Carribean is a great game in itself. But the repetition of the affair is what bogs down the overall package.You will find yourself searching aimlessly for the mysterious "Baron Raymundo," or whetever his name is, for hours on end until its time for your crew to revolt and re-start the procedure. This is just a small example of the MANY situations you will see over and over and over again.

A saving grace of this title though is the beautifully executed ship combat that has you engaging any and every ship crossing your path that you do not like. Allign yourself with a patron/pimp, and its off to slog a few English spines. But while you are out there, check for the many glitches popping up around te ocean. Hey, look over there, the ship ive been chasing for the last ten minutes has escaped by sailing over land! Truly, a magical sight!(Breaks PSP).

Overall,yes. Despite the maddenning detractions, the title offers what most PSP titles only wish they could. Fun, if only for so long.

Its a little slow paced at times sailing around and attacking but its pretty good overall. Not action packed mind you, but still fun
