I remember back when this came out in 2004, it was talked about all the time! Everybody was playing it. Now, over a decade later, I haven't heard anybody talk about this great game in awhile, which is pretty sad. Sid Meier's Pirates is remake of the original from the 80s. This version has full 3d graphics (which still look good by the way) and interesting gameplay. You pretty much make you own pirate and sail away looking for gold and new ships. Ship combat is fast and fun, and going to the different islands/towns is interesting. Probably the only flaw to this game is the dueling part, but it isn't that bad. If you want to try something different, Sid Meier's Pirates is a great place to start.
Sid Meier's Pirates is a failed attempt by the producer to make a game with ambiance at sea and you must control pirates. The controls are extremely difficult to control as well as control the character you should also control the ship, which causes you to die very early. The graphics are certainly one of the worst in the series looking like it was done for many years. The sea is practically stopped and the movement of the waves is very bad. The game has almost no soundtrack, just a few songs that are being repeated and quite irritate the player. For those who are fans of the series I do not recommend buying the game that will certainly be very disappointed.
