Grand_Admiral_Thrawn Posted February 24, 2005 Share Posted February 24, 2005 You know, I didn't think that I could get addicted to a swash-buckling, but I am. I've been playing Sid Meier's Pirates! for that past three days strait... ok, I took a six hour break to go to work, and I think I've slept four hours, but other than that, three days strait. What shocked me is that it's so simple! You can use your mouse and your arrow keys, or you can play the whole game with your Num Pad! Sail around, attack other ships, take them as prizes, sell the ship, it's cargo, press some of the crew, upgrade your ship, switch to a different ship, woo the daughters of local governors, earn promotions from four of the five factions (English, French, Dutch and Spanish), complete missions, search for treasure, raid cities, recruit sailors for your fleet (should you choose to amass one), defeat famous pirates to gain presige, and, if you really care about them, rescue your family that has been taken and sold into slavery by an evil Spanish Duke. What more could you want!?I reccoment this game to anyone who enjoys a simple game (well, simple to play), and is into naval combat... ok, time to get back to the seas! History is on the move, Captain. Those who cannot keep up with it will be left behind, to watch from a distance. And those who stand in our way will not watch at all."- ”Grand Admiral Thrawn" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
