Despite the fact that a couple of the mini-games can become a little repetitive, the game is really fun to play. Choosing you own destiny, rather than having a strictly linear path is really rewarding. Even though your initial choices of nationality and specific skill could be the same for every game, the game will play out completely different meaning the replay factor is huge. The controls are simple and intuitive, although I would have really liked Wii Sports Resort style sword fighting, the visuals are vibrant and colourful and the sound effects keep the Caribbean theme going strong. The new mini-games are also a nice inclusion to this version of Sid Meier’s Pirates!. So with that, I’m going to head back to the tavern, recruit some more crew and resume my search for the evil Marquis.
