Admit it, you want to be a pirate.
You wanta be a pirate, don't you? Do stuff that pirates do. Just bring your boat and cutlass. Take pride in recruiting the local scumbages at the inn. Help or plunder the town, as you wish. Find old treasure maps broken into a thousand pieces and put it back together. But ultimately, find all your relatives so you can start a normal life?
It does get redundant after a while. A man can only have so many lost relatives.
The Bottom Line
Has a Civ I like feel. Are you the equivilant of a high seas Solomon? Or do you possess intelligence on par with Eric the Red? It's a fun game, for a couple dozen hours or so.
