returns to his roots with this remake of Sid Meier's Pirates!
, his 1987 game about sailing the high seas in search of treasure. As in the original, you will plunder cities, sink enemy ships, and more. A plethora of different styles of gameplay will have you sneaking out of prison, dancing with the governor's daughter, engaging in real-time strategic combat, and a slew of others. Sid Meier's Pirates!
features a new 3D engine, but its style of stringing several minigames together to make a congruent game remains true to the original.

Some sound-effects/video in Sid Meier's Pirates
were re-used from previous Civilization
games., One example includes when your character swings on a rope aboard a ship. The yell he makes is actually the yell an Archer makes in Civ III
when he gets promoted. Another example is one of the ballroom dancing pieces that's played. It happens to also be a track used in Civilization III: Conquests
