  1. The game is simple to learn, yet lends itself to intense, challenging battles that can really get your adrenaline racing.
  2. Age of Booty is a competent multiplayer real-time strategy game that uses its pirate setting well. It is best played among friends on levels you designed for yourself or with strangers over the PSN. Single player levels are ok in itself, but offer no more than a tutorial and very basic gameplay.
  3. 75
    If you have a group of like-minded friends, Age of Booty is an addictive online strategy game that rewards communication and teamwork.
  4. If it weren’t for the online multiplayer and map editor modes, there wouldn’t be much to say about Age of Booty. But this game wasn’t designed to be played as a single player game so a lot can be forgiven.
  5. 70
    The single player component will only satisfy the lonely and serve as a tutorial backdrop for the more robust multi-player options. A properly accessible downloadable title, Age of Booty is a joy to hop into with some friends, though with the current sound difficulties and insubstantial single-player not quite worth the $9.99 price tag.
  6. Fun with friends, but best avoided like the press gang alone. [Feb 2009, p.103]
  7. 81
    Evades repetition with considerable grace. [Issue#172, p.93]
  8. Actual strategy may be negligible, but there's a slick arcade title waiting for anyone wishing to drop anchor. [Feb 2009, p.84]
