"An excellent idea, not perfectly realised but still ambitious and compelling enough to deserve your attention." -PCGamer.com
"Air Buccaneers delivers one of the most rewarding cooperative multiplayer experiences available," - IGN.com
Welcome to the ancient North, once the cradle of culture and peace, but is now corrupted by magic and inhabited by nasty bandits sowing destruction in airships.
Choose to be a vicious Buccaneer or an infamous Viking and take a glider to the skies. Your goal is to drop enemy vessels and secure dominance of the ancient North. Fire cannons, help others, board enemy ships or be the captain – whatever it takes to get your enemies out of the way. The success, as well as the bitter defeat, is solely dependent on how well you co-operate with your crew mates.
Finding the right kind of battle strategy is not self-evident in the merciless winds and twisted magic of the North...

When I first got my hands on my copy I had some negative feelings about the game but after playing an afternoon session it blew my mind away. Air Buccaneers is just absolute especially with mates. Fluent gameplay and surprisingly good graphics for an Indie Developer. Throughout the game you level up and you unlock some new gear for customization which I liked and one of the great elements of the game. If you want blow up your friends and create a massacre then I recommend this game.

Air Buccaneers can be incredibly fun, and I want to like it. However, this game relies on a multiplayer community. The gameplay is really fun. You get to be a pirate of the sky, pillaging, and bringing ruin to other air ships. It's extremely exciting, when you can find people to play with.
The ranks, perks, and people you can unlock are great incentive to play. The biggest flaw with this game lies not in the game itself, but the community. Having logged in some hours every now and then, it was rare for me to find more than one person online, which is a real shame. This game offers a great, and somewhat unique, experience to players, but there just aren't enough people playing.

Graphics: Good, the games use of fog makes it so that it doesn't have to render the far away bits of the map, but still maintains an immersive feel. Sound: Good, standard explosion sounds and some good voice commands to shout to your team. Reliability: Good, I have only ever had a few bugs in this game, but it's ok because you can just join back into the game and pick up where you left off. Replay Value: Good, there are four classes and two factions for you to choose, many unlocks and quite a few different kinds of ship. Story: There isn't one really, but the back-story of ancient Vikings and bandits waging war in the sky really gets you exited. Gameplay: Great, there are lots of things to do: drive the ship, fire cannons, use handheld rockets, board enemy ships, tell your crew what to do and just general ship maintenance. The damage and health is great, ships don't get destroyed really easily but, at the same time, it won't take ages for a ship to be destroyed. Great game that I really recommend and hope you buy.
Funny Game!spongengebob | July 8, 2013 | See all spongengebob's reviews »
Air Buccaneers is a game that is better to play with friends. But also funny when you play alone. This is like the old mod for Unreal with better graphics and a good story.
Enjoyable game.arkantos | Feb. 8, 2013 | See all arkantos's reviews »
Remember the old Unreal mod ? Loved it ? If you are like me and enjoyed it, this game will get you hours of fun, i personally had fun with it, while playing some matches, also it's cheaper than the other games like this , and it wouldn't be a good idea to pass on it, about the graphic it might not be the best around, but for a indie company it's good, while progressing into the game you will be able to level up and gear up your character to be always more powerful also, i suggest you to get this game as soon as possible, so you can start flying around the sky bombing down enemies.
