    It may not have the emotional impact of some of Square's RPG's, but it does have likeable characters, a huge amount of gameplay, an epic quest, and beautifully rendered environments and effects.

    Finally a game for the pimps in us all.
  3. This is the must-have title for the season, if only because riding your Pimp-N-Ator 4000 into a harbor then blinding the locals with the shine from your pearl walking staff is the sort of adventuring that comes around once in a lifetime.
  4. Great scripting, captivating characters, a good battle system, and two long GD-ROMs worth of game give you the bang for the buck.
  5. There are much better things to spend one's money on. Like root canals.
  6. Everything is low quality and repetitive, you'll throw the game down in a number of minutes.

This game is so different to other RPGs that it deserves more attention; clearly plenty of work was put into this game, from the music, to the settings and story. Expand

    Avast! There be no greater amount of pimpness aboard this industry. Truly the masterpiece to define slappin' on ye high seas for the ages to come. After all, it's the bling on your eye patch and the snakeskin on your wooden leg that matters. Yaargh! Expand

    It starts off a bit sloppy, but once you start getting into it, you can't stop. Dualwield the musket and blunderbuss pistol. It won't let you down. Expand

    I found the controls confusing at first...But then I really got into the swing of it and am currently on level 13f. Boy Howdy! Just one minor flaw...The pink ribbon campaign is admirable, but I don't want my 'ho to have a mastectomy scar. Expand
