Adds a fun new mechanic to the base gameDaiMonPaul | July 11, 2013 | See all DaiMonPaul's reviews »
This expansion DLC adds pirates to the Commander: Conquest of the Americas base game. Unlike the other expansion, this one actually adds game mechanics; you can face pirates in battle, trade with them, or even hire them. The pirates mechanic works pretty well and it gives you another strategic option to consider, adding diversity to a game which could use some. I found myself hiring pirates to raid the fleets of my competitors, saving me a lot of time and effort in the game (at the cost of some money). If you don't plan on exploring the options that pirates give you, then there's nothing else in this DLC for you (as it focuses exclusively on this mechanic), but if you want to add a little flavor to the base game, then you should pick up this DLC.
