If you're looking for a great multiplayer strategy game with a nautical theme, then Age of Booty will likely swab your deck just fine. The game is simple to learn, yet lends itself to intense, challenging battles that can really get your adrenaline racing. Just beware of selfish teammates and shoddy AI putting a damper on what is otherwise a first-rate gaming experience. While we may never truly know what makes pirates such dashing figures in the eyes of many, with games like Age of Booty, it's not so hard to see the appeal after all.
"Age of Booty"' é um jogo de estratégia simples e simpático, vendido apenas por download. Embora sua campanha principal para um jogador sofra por causa da inteligência artificial pouco inspirada, no modo multiplayer o game revela seu verdadeiro potencial. Com ação acessível e fácil de jogar, é uma ótima pedida para aqueles que desejam curtir algumas partidas intensas entre amigos sem muita complicação.
If you have a group of like-minded friends, Age of Booty is an addictive online strategy game that rewards communication and teamwork. It’s simple to grasp, but there’s enough depth and balance to please hardcore players. However, the lack of folks online and a single-player mode damaged by uncooperative AI teammates who seem to be lone wolves more than a band of pirate brothers hurt the experience.
If it weren’t for the online multiplayer and map editor modes, there wouldn’t be much to say about Age of Booty. But this game wasn’t designed to be played as a single player game so a lot can be forgiven. This is a heavily multiplayer oriented game and although it could’ve been improved with a little more variety, i.e. something other than capturing towns, it’s still pretty fun. Therefore, if you plan on getting Age of Booty, do yourself a favor: forget the single player, go straight to Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network, and test your digital sea legs.
The single player component will only satisfy the lonely and serve as a tutorial backdrop for the more robust multi-player options. A properly accessible downloadable title, Age of Booty is a joy to hop into with some friends, though with the current sound difficulties and insubstantial single-player not quite worth the $9.99 price tag.
The Review Busters
I have almost nothing to say about this game. If you like boring garbage game play this is totally the game for you. If you have 10 bucks you want to throw away, go out and see a crappy movie, at least you’ll be able to stare at the screen for more than an hour.
