SummaryAn example of what a PC should strive to be.
The GoodSome of my earliest and fondest memories of PC gaming are of the game 'Pirates!'. Everything about this game is golden. The naval combat is exciting and intense, the sword fighting is thrilling, and few things beat the rush of successfully capturing a well-defended city.
This game has it all. You choose a nation to privateer for and set forth to the Caribbean. Throughout the game you attain fame and fortune, search for your long lost family, and even woo the beautiful (and not-so-beautiful) governors' daughters. Everything about this title is top notch.
The worst thing I can say about 'Pirates!' is that Sid Meier has never made an updated version.
