Good but not classicmahon | Feb. 26, 2014 | See all mahon's reviews »
Corsairs is one of the games which were created in the wake of Sid Meier's Pirates! popularity. Many games tried to stand up to the original's reputation and quality and most of them fell short. It doesn't mean they all were bad games, but somehow they didn't manage to nail what made Sid Meier's game so successful. Still, if you're already bored with the Pirates! and still want more swashbuckling adventures on high seas, Corsairs Gold is a good choice for you. It is different enough to make it feel fresh and not just a direct clone of Pirates! On the other hand it's difficult to name even one thing at which this game really shines. Well, it has everything a pirates game should have, but then it's not outstanding at any of these things. It's a good game, but not one that will become an unforgettable classic.
