  • Summary: Now you too can lead the wooden fleets of the world's most powerful nautical powers into battle in the new standard of naval combat simulation, Age of Sail II: Privateer's Bounty. Never before has every aspect of nautical combat been so faithfully reproduced, from advanced sailing tactics, to the handling of your crews. It's time for you to accept your Letter of Marques, and immerse yourself into an epoch of adventure and intrigue, into the Age of Sail. [Global Star Software] Expand

    The best of the Age of Sail series.
  2. An engaging naval strategic combat game that is big on challenges.
  3. The notoriously bad AI of the previous game has been replaced by a functional computer opponent that acquits itself well in battles on the open sea. But when land is introduced, a number of problems show up.
  4. The large number of missions, the three campaigns, authentic ships and weapons and historical battles are bound to thrill any fan of naval RTS games.
  5. The real-time naval tactics elicited in ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore combat are both subtle and enjoyable.
  6. With the games that are currently on the gaming public’s plate, this cheaply made piece of software will and should pass under the radar of all gamers out there.
  7. A game of amazing promise delivers mostly crushing disappointment. [Jan 2003, p.122]
