Pirates! is a game that is truly unique. You start out as a lowly sailor, and as time goes on, you will acquire ships, build a crew, find treasure, and trade for secret maps. When you meet an enemy ship, you can either sail away or board and fight with your choice of swords. If you win, you get their gold, take the captain prisoner, and get a new ship. Sail into an enemy town and take it by storm. The possibilities of the game are endless. An excellent game to get your hands on.

Challenge: B. This game can get hard in some places, like sword fights, but overall it's not extremely hard.

Graphics: B. Very notable in some places, like the lookout's nest, but the overview of the ship sailing is mediocre at best.

Fun: A+. Excellent, excellent! Great piratey music, and very appropriate. The only reason it's not an A is the wave sound, which is basically static.
