  1. I love the fact that the game's exploration is open-ended.
  2. It also captures the spirit of both the old pirate movies, imparting a sense of heroism and roguishness within the player.
  3. Blends solid and fresh gameplay with great graphics and exceptional sound design to create a title that lets you relish life on the high seas.
  4. The sound is exceptional and the storyline manages to tie the whole program nicely together.

    Unsurprisingly, this looks better than the PS2 version, but me timbers remain unshivered. [June 2002, p.83]

    kept waiting for this game to become fun. It doesn't really.

    The game's odd predilection for nighttime levels ensures that players will be doing double duty fighting and squinting. [Summer 2002, p.91]

    This game has the best of both Pirate worlds..
    Ship/Naval combat/exploring & Fighting on land w/ decent/standard fighting mechanics and puzzles.
    ~The game has character upgrades & separate ship agrades like weapons & hull or ram damage etc..
    *I didn't finish it because IM NOT A COMPLETIONIST & PLAY GAMES TILL I GET BORED.
    and I did get bored b4 I finished it...
    But now that I collect PS2/OG Xbox games= I realized many other 40 year olds do too & they need to know that this game is thee best Pirate game save for AssCreed Black Flag..

    **Off Topic~ it amazes me that Pirate themed games suck all these years/decades...
    Sea of Thieves shoulda woulda coulda & even Black Flag was mediocre compaired to what should be....
    Actually ive been wanting a improved version of Pirates Black Kat since 2002...
