Sid Meier's Pirates! PSP Review

 

Sid Meier's Pirates! was essentially just a collection of mini games, although it was still somehow one of the Xbox's most absorbing games and Full Fat have done a wonderful job of porting the game to the significantly smaller PSP.

Sid Meier’s Pirates! sucked us in like a whirlpool, its pull was rather frightening, but also delightful at the same time. It's absolutely compulsive stuff and every bit as good as the Xbox version.

Sid Meier's Pirates!

 

Are you a PSP owner looking to buckle your heroic swash, do you crave the attainment of attractive sea legs, are cannons and swords an integral part of you personal portable armory? Does wooing the daughters of foreign dignitaries sound like an active...

Game sound in Pirates! is subtly applied, and well observed. The musical score sits snugly behind the visuals and never threatens to spill over into brash and ill-fitting accompaniment. Ship battles and personal duels ramp up the tempo with jovial yet...

Sid Meier's Pirates! - PSP review at Thunderbolt Games

 

A long time ago, a small crew of bored, skint fisherman decided to have a bit of fun by strapping several cannons to their vessel and sailing off “to the end of the earth”, pillaging, plundering and raping pretty much anything that came their way....

Sid Meier's Pirates!

 

An elegant mix of complexity and simplicity on the small screen.

The game boils down to what might be described as minigames sailing, sword fighting, dancing, sneaking and trading. But that term doesn't do Pirates! justice, for a few reasons. First, each activity offers more than the mindless twitching you'll find...

Sid Meier's Pirates!

 

Shiver your timbers in your pocket with this great pirate adventure. Ideally suited to the PSP this game will have you setting sail on the ocean waves and coming back for more. Yaarrrr!

High seas, rollicking pirate fun. A very good port from the original PC version that loses little in the translation

Some speed issues in the gameplay and the small playing area can be confusing at times

Sid Meier's Pirates! Review

 

A solid portable version of one of the best games ever.

If you have never played the game, then absolutely, Pirates is a must have for your PSP. If you've played the Xbox or PC modernized version, there is still enough here to warrant trying it out but it may not be a purchase if you're already enjoying...

Sid Meier's Pirates!

 

Sailing, swordplay and diplomacy

The basic fundamentals of being an effective portable pirate include the basic skills every seafarer of the age should be well practiced at. You will start with a modest sloop which is well equipped for combat. Navigation is simple, swift and easy to...
