Pirates: Duels on the High Seas review

  • If you liked the first one...
  • Jolly for the first level
  • Multiplayer adds a little spice
  • Nothing-special visuals
  • Ships slide all over
  • Tired story

This is the follow-up to lacklustre WiiWare title Pirates: The Key of Dreams. This is essentially the same game, about which we have the same opinion.  So, “take charge of a pirate ship... it’s a life of navigating angular waterways populated by fleets of enemy vessels, which you destroy either with standard broadsides or finite bow-fired weapons...  it’s all quite jolly for the first level but once you’ve progressed a bit further you realize how little variety there is... multiplayer free-for-alls add a little spice to the formula, but overall this is a yo-ho-no.”

Did we really say “yo-ho-no”? Ha! How funny we are. Anyway, we gave the original a 4. Which sounds about right.
