Simple, Fun, and Incredibly hard to put down

I found this game to be very addictive.

It's simple, fun, and full of things to do and see. All of this is done with a cartoonish overhead world map, and fighter style sword duals.

I literally started playing at around 6pm with the intent to play an hour or two with a full battery. Then I noticed my battery was gone and it was 10pm.

The real fun comes from trying to make yourself the richest most powerful, most famous pirate in history. This is done by shooting and looting ships from enemy factions, killing the top ten pirates of the day and finding their buried stash, courting beautiful (or ugly!) governer's daughters, finding your lost family members, becoming admiral in one of the four navys (British, French, Danish, Spanish) buying and selling cargo to differant ports, even helping the tavern wench fight off a drunken captain!

This game is truly a work of art, its simple nature is a disguise for a stuffed cargohold of great gameplay. (9 out of 10!!)

Keeper! No two games are ever the same

This game is outstanding for the PSP. A very good port of the original, and the sub-games coupled with the simple gaming interface of ship travel/combat makes this game a pleasure to play on the PSP. Throw in the game's penchant for constantly changing goals/quests from game to game, and the ability to change your character mid-game by 'upping' the difficulty level, and you've got a recipe for a keeper. I bought this game from gamefly after having it 3 days. I can pick this one up and play it anytime. Enough said.

I love this game it is very good. I play like all day.
The only thing is that it can get boring for most people(not for me).
It does get pretty hard. They send like pirate hunters after when you keep attacking the same ships over and over again. You can sneak into towns.
You sword fight.
Everything a pirate does you do in the game.
