    Hands down one of the worst games I've played on the PS2. It's just so ... cheap. Besides ripping off Sid Meier, the game suffers from not providing enough direction as to what you're supposed to do, cheap CGI scenes, boring music and, the most annoying thing, NPC's that talk like adults in a Charlie Brown Christmas special.

Besides ripping off Sid Meier, the game suffers from not providing enough direction as to what you're supposed to do, cheap CGI scenes, boring music and, the most annoying thing, NPC's that talk like adults in a Charlie Brown Christmas special. If you don't want to have spoken dialogue, don't have them make any noise. That simple. The only redeeming thing about the game is that the combat system isn't horrendous, but it's not good enough to want you to keep playing. Expand

  1. While the RPG and action elements aren't exactly balanced equally, this game may be most appealing to RPG fans who like a bit of excitement in their role-playing experience.
  2. Swashbucklers is a mix of "Pirates!" and "Way of the Samurai," but doesn't quite reach the level of either. It will be a great game for a small number of gamers, but for the rest it's a rental at best.

    Overall, we recommend passing on this pirating adventure. [Jan 2008, p.84]
