  1. The game is simple to learn, yet lends itself to intense, challenging battles that can really get your adrenaline racing.
  2. It's a very fun game that doesn't last very long, if you don't spar alongside human opponents online or via LAN.

    Age of Booty was designed as a multiplayer online game and doesn’t work as such right now. If that changes soon, give it a try.

    I enjoyed the original Age of Booty on PC, and am atremble with anticipation at the very thought of a sequel. Here's a pirate joke for you:

    Long ago when pirate ships sailed the seas, there was a pirate ship engaged in battle which was in serious danger of being boarded by the enemy. The captain of the embattled ship, upon realizing the predicament, ordered his first mate to run to his cabin and fetch him his red shirt. The first mate did as he was told, and upon donning his red shirt, the captain rallied his men and were able to turn the tide of battle until their enemies fled, taking only a few casualties in the process.

    Later on that day after successfully repelling their enemies attack, the pirate captain and his ship came under the attack of not one but two enemy ships. Once again, things began to look very grim for our pirate captain and his crew, but once more he yelled to his first mate, â

    Honestly, this game is really good and I was satisfied from the moment I first stepped into game. It's a very good game to play when you just want to play a casual game that doesn't require much thinking. The AI is surprisingly very good and work well on the custom made maps you can make on the map creator. The online isn't THAT hard to setup but probably isn't worth it as no one play this game anyway.

    Its good, really good. Just pick up and play a 10 minute match for the fun this game delivers.

    A cheap, casual pirate game that is mired by DRM issues and gameplay that would appease only the most casual of PC players. If you're a hardcore gamer, avoid. Collapse

    This is a nice idea for a game, but it took me an hour to install because I had to sign up to game-spy, ign, and some other thing. I had to enter the serial code 3 times. The game is not difficult at all you don't need upgrades as you can beat any level in under 2 minutes without them. It's boring I think I would rather clean a toilet or take out the trash. maybe 5 minutes of game play without install maybe 15 on multi-player. Expand

    This game is crippled from the get go. It uses user-hostile DRM(SecuRom). In order to play multilayer, you need: IGN account, gamespy id account and the gamespy comrade third party software. The developers were not thinking on their consumers when developing this game. Stay away from it. Expand
