Summary

This game needs a 21st century update NOW!

The Good

Always different, captivating, challenging, teaches while you play

The Bad

Hey Moby, Is there any way you could release Pirates! in a version which could be played on one of today's PC's? I loved the old Pirates! Gold game which was playable in Windows with a patch, but now I own Windows XP. I'd love to purchase this game but why bother if it doesn't work in my current format? Pirates! Gold was by far the best game of its genre in the late 80's- early 90's, and it's a shame to just let it fall into oblivion because nobody with an updated PC can play it.

The Bottom Line

If you like adventure- strategy- role playing games, you'll like this.
