"Space Pirate" is the latest shoot'em-up game from "American Laser Games". Just as their previous games, (Crime Patrol, Who Shot Johnny Rock, Mad Dog, etc...) your reflexes are being put to the test. After being a cop in Crime Patrol, a 30's detective in Johnny Rock, and a cowboy from the far west in Mad Dog, now "Space Pirate" drags you out to the end of the universe.
אחרי שגומרים את המשחקים, מסתובבים בבית אחוזי תזזית ומחפשים פושעים מאחורי כל פינה!

If you like sci-fi action, you should like the environment of Space Pirates. And if you can tolerate the misfiring controls, you'll enjoy the non-stop blasting. Space Pirates isn't a glorious treasure chest of fun, but it's still worth plundering.

American Laser Games has added another shooting game to their collection for the 3DO, Space Pirates. A game filled with suspense and futuristic special effects.

Еще из плюсов у "Космических пиратов" можно отметить низкие системные требования и отсутствие инсталляции (игра идет непосредственно с диска). В каталоге с рекламными роликами вы найдете еще дюжину видео, напоминающих об аналогичных проектах из прошлого. Часть из них уже дождалась момента переиздания, а остальные еще надеются на свою счастливую звезду. Что ж, будем надеяться и мы, потому что это, во-первых, как ни крути, целая веха в игровой индустрии, а, во-вторых, таких игр больше не делают. И это весьма печально.

Noch eine Ecke blöder und stümperhafter als Mad Dog McCree versprüht Space Pirates den Ballercharme eines zerbrochenen Blasrohrs und macht weit weniger Spaß als alle anderen Genrevertreter. Die Schauspieler sind üble Dilettanten, die Technik besonders für Double-Speed-Laufwerke ein Witz, das Spielsystem gewohnt langweilig und Systemabstürze stehen auf der Tagesordnung. Zum Glück darf wenigstens gespeichert werden, denn so hat man Space Pirates in 30 Minuten durchgespielt und es bleibt genügend Zeit, die CD wütend zu zertreten oder besser noch gänzlich zu recyceln.

Un jeu pour apprendre à utiliser la souris du PC. Vous savez vous en servir ? Alors ce jeu n'est pas pour vous.

I don't know how this plays with the light gun, but I found the controller pad to be pretty [expletive] sorry. Making matters worse, each time you mess up some old man rags on you about how you let everybody down. [Expletive] you! At least I'm not stuck in some crummy FMV game! Topping things off, it's downright disconcerting when the evil villain says "winners don't do drugs!" during the intro. Wait a second - since when do we listen to the bad guys? Does this mean we should do drugs? Mixed messages like this are what put teenagers on a path to drug addiction, crime, and despair. Fortunately, no teenagers actually played this game, because their were too busy playing good games on their Genesis and Super Nintendo systems.
