    Great game, my only complaint is the inability to aim your cannons as destroying land targets is anoying.

    This is an out an out arcade game representing excellent value for money, superb graphics and extremely addictive playability. Multiplayer is awesome and with over 50 missions has plenty of longevity. Highly recommended.

    Great visuals, engaging single player gameplay, and the chance to sink friends and strangers alike in multiplayer play, all for a budget price. The single player campaign also has repeat playability, each time you can play the maps in a different order or try using different ships, and no two completed games will be the same. All in all very enjoyable and easily one of the best games Great visuals, engaging single player gameplay, and the chance to sink friends and strangers alike in multiplayer play, all for a budget price.

  1. There's no big-budget fanfare for this title, no horde of developers, no committee meetings and embargo dates. Instead you have a clean, honest arcade naval shooter for a little over thirty bucks.
  2. Considering that Buccaneers was created by just two individual developers, the end result is quite impressive.
  3. Nothing deep here but even though the game has very arcade-like roots, taken as a package it works. The scored missions give a reason to try to achieve a quick and efficient solution. This may not be a game that you will sit down and spend hours with, but in increments you should walk away with a smile on your face.
