Summary

17th century ships in the open waters is what impressed me first . . the pleasing graphics with soothing music adds to the ambiance . . and the idea of the movie pressed even more . . these are the points that backed me to start this slow game . . . . . . but at one point I couldn't look away from the screen . . so many nice islands . . so many things to explore . . . so much loot and so much to discover . . once I finished the story mode I played again with an walkthrough . . . for a GTA fan with classic tastes this is definitely one of my favorite games . . . . . those big ships with all the vital statistics and the in depth character developments are quite good

things I didn't like about the game is that you cannot continue freeplay after finishing the storymode, and the cutscene videos could have been better . . and the game is full of bugs!

wish they bring out a sequel anytime

Summary

Yes the game looks pretty, and the ambient sounds while exploring the island, or on the deck of your ship sound nice, but graphics, and sails slapping in the wind don't make a great game.

It's poorly written, with TERRIBLE voices, and the inane chatter gets very repetitious before too long.

Everything about this game is slow: The sword fighting and traveling on foot on islands (even when running) are painfully s-l-o-o-o-o-w!

Once you've managed to capture a couple of galleons, or battleships the sea battles are a cakewalk.

And finally, the later missions consist nearly entirely of "Deliver this" and "Fetch that" runs. If I wanted to make "delivery runs" I'd play Pizza Dude, or one of the many taxi driving games.

BORING!

I STILL can't believe that this is the highest-rated pirate game on GameSpot.

Summary

when I got this when it came out, I put it in and got the hang of it in seconds. The boatswain really helps ya at first and then when you leave Oxbay you know what to find. They help keep the briefings clear.
The graphics shook me along with the realism. It was almost like what you'd see in the XBOX 360 (almost). The music made you wanna sleep though (wich is good for a game that takes place in the 17th century). The sound was realistic although there aren't much speaking voices so you gotta use your imagination.

Sailing is a bit arcade, but really fun, especially if you got a battleship, than nothing will take ya down.

Fights arent realstic though. When you block your stuck there cause if you move you die. Numbers of units make the game very unfair. I caught myself using God mode cheat alot. If you can get around that, than your in for a good collection to the classics.




What bit of the game I played I was enjoying but I got a more upto date PC and for some reason now it just won't run;-(

Summary

Yes I'm a bit upset that it won't run on what was my new Vista computer which also has more ram and a better graphics card than my old one that ran on XP. I've tried all sorts to get it to run, different compatibility modes, down loaded patches, tried suggestions from different forums, but nothing, seems to work. So I've just resigned myself to the fact, that like a lot of these old games, that it's just not compatible with new windows Vista or Windows 7. I you have an old PC running on XP or older, then it's worth giving it a go It's a cracking game and for it's time the graphics ar good to. I also believe this was the game that inspired the making of the film. I would have loved to have completed it, If any one does have any suggestions on possibilities why it might not run on newer computers or have any fixes or patches I'd be grateful for your help along with a lot of other disgruntled people.
