Pirates, eh!? Brilliant, eh!? Not really, but this is a multiplayer game up there with Bomberman and Worms. Eight players sail the seas, fight, and attempt to occupy ports to secure victory. Offline, it’s... a bit rubbish. It’s a speedy and strategic RTS-lite, and unlike anything else on XBLA. Just don’t bother playing alone.
