  • Summary: The invading armada drifts on the horizon, preparing for war. On your order, the battle begins. Explosions break the peaceful atmosphere as the smoke distorts the scene. It was a time when nations fought for naval dominance ... a time of true adventure ... a time unlike no other. It was the Age Of Sail! [TalonSoft] Expand

  1. With an easy control interface, and its incredible graphics, game play and sound, this program is the best in its genre, without a doubt. It is a joy to play.
  2. Truly an interesting piece of work, not only because it is currently the only naval sim, but also because the gameplay and the brilliant atmosphere.

    This is the only game in town as far as Fighting Sail games go. "Sea Dogs" is fantastic, but it's got much more of an individual piracy focus. But I don't want to make this like your grandpa tells you, "You're my favorite grandchild," and then you're all like, "But I'm your only grandchild." It's more than that.
  4. What saves Age of Sail II from the abysmal fate that many people on Akella's message boards claim it deserves is the excellent quality of the overall presentation in the music, graphics and sound systems.
  5. The only people who might enjoy the game are those who are interested in the time period or in old-style naval combat, and who can find others to play against in multiplayer games.
  6. It's interesting enough, and you'd probably get a few hours of gameplay out of it, but it gets tired really quickly. Add this to the fact that the really cool battles -- the ones with lots of ships on each side that might have drawn you to this title--are nearly impossible to coordinate.
  7. The entire experience is crippled by an obtuse interface and abysmal documentation. All in all, this is one of the most unstable and frustratingly erratic games to anchor in software stores in quite some time.
