This game is perfect for: casual gamers
This is a trade simulation game if you are into that sort of thing if not then Sid Meier's Pirates is the alternative game
Pros:
-excellent graphics
-Pirate attacks
-owning your own merchant empire or pirate kingdom
- able to name your "fleet"
-PC game combat
-strategical conquest
Cons:
-Lazy Tutorial
-lack of customization to the ship and the "pirate" main character aka YOU
-Merchant before pirate....meaning you have to build enough funds to get the ships to help you take control by force
-economic calculations a bit screwy they either go negative or positive way too fast
-Town defense needs better explanation
-single player and free mode are exactly the same
- town specific missions need to have a better "quest starter" system instead of getting the quest....just about a month before time runs out
-reputation system needs better detail...instead of this "if fallen before 50 percent...you can't enter port"
-If your merchant empire becomes to large it will eventually become an economic threat to the Caribbean...wait.what?!
- no on deck combat so if you love Sid Meier's Pirates and hope that THIS game has one...don't kid yourself
