Análises

"Air Buccaneers delivers one of the most rewarding cooperative multiplayer experiences available"7.5/10 – IGN

"THE HOLY GRAIL OF MULTIPLAYER COMBAT"
9/10 – Pixels For Breakfast

"Team-based Air Buccaneers is all about manning a slow, lumbering battle-balloon, but it manages to be a lot more tense, exciting and funny than that might sound."
80/100 – PC Gamer

“There’s depth that I never expected when I first started playing, and, more importantly, it’s immensely fun.”
7.5/10 – Destructoid

Sobre este jogo

Welcome to the ancient North, once the cradle of culture and peace, but is now corrupted by magic and inhabited by nasty bandits sowing destruction in airships.


Choose to be a vicious Buccaneer or an infamous Viking and take a glider to the skies. Your goal is to drop enemy vessels and secure dominance of the ancient North. Fire cannons, help others, board enemy ships or be the captain – whatever it takes to get your enemies out of the way. The success, as well as the bitter defeat, is solely dependent on how well you co-operate with your crew mates.


Finding the right kind of battle strategy is not self-evident in the merciless winds and twisted magic of the North...

Multiplayer only.

Seems to be quite dead, which is a shame because it seems quite neat. Oh well.

Quite fun, but I've only encountered like 2 persons and 4 bots. More people should play it.

This is a... Guns of Icarus for those who want something for nothing. And as a result: I can only recommend this game on the grounds that... Well. Before I start, let me explain.

I chose to play this, on the grounds that it has physics on the projectiles, full on boarding, and general airship goodness, which is seldom followed by developers, aside from Guns of Icarus.

However.

This game is.... FAR. From finished. It needs a good deal more work before it could be considered complete, and we'll leave it at that.
The airships themselves (once again, mentioning guns of icarus) seem more realistic from a physical standpoint - the deck is very small and minimum, regardless of what vessel you jump onto by... doing barrel rolls on a railtracked glider, that I hasten to add, becomes a very unhappy if you switch rapidly between the ships when you attempt to fly to one.

The combat is... Slow. Very slow.
This is down to the fact, the ships fly themselves. Yep. You don't have full control -
The airships list slowly through the air on a pre determined speed, with the only imput being whether you move up, down, or turn. There are "boost" options, but they're on a cooldown that makes them difficult to use reliably, and ultimately a pointless addon, other than to give a momentary boost to the otherwise snailpace gameplay.


I could go on. I could talk for a long time about the bad. But wait, I hear you ask, you're recommending this game? But it's so bad! Why?

Simple.

With some of the absolute insanity, caused through glitches, mildly broken animations and issues that were laughable at best, the whole experience was worth the asking price of nothing. *IF* you have a group of friends you can drop in with to ♥♥♥♥ around for a couple of hours.

So yes, you should play this. If you have friends. And you want to laugh at an ultimately broken, and.... nonsensical monster of a game. The fact it's free to play helps, because I wouldn't pay for this game if you dared me.

Hae fun!
(Or play Guns of Icarus. It's more fleshed out, and less buggy.)

If this game were active I would play it near every day. Having 10+ players on each team have given me the some of the most fun I've had in a video game. I was lucky enough to find 5 players on today and had a blast. All this game needs is some advertisement, and an active community.

A idéia do jogo é fantástica, combate de aeronaves por todo o céu. Porem somente a idéia é fantástica!
O jogo é totalmente bugado. Tem bug na hora de andar, na hora de lutar, na hora de dar um simples tiro de canhão.
Enfim, guarde seu dinheiro!

Peguei em um bundle antes de se tornar Free to Play, infelizmente não posso jogar porque o multy está morto (e o jogo não tem modo campanha).
-------------------------------
Picked up in a bundle before it became Free to Play, unfortunately I can not play because the multy is dead (and the game has no campaign mode).

AirBuccaneers is different than your usual first person shooter fare. That scores it bonus points in my book for innovation alone. An interesting idea alone doesn't make a good game but AirBuccaneers is executed, not flawlessly mind you, but well enough to make for a very enjoyable gaming experience. It has come a long way since it started as an Unreal Tournament mod in 2003.

Before I go into the details I have to tell you my main gripe I have with this game, it will most likely be a dealbreaker if you're considering a purchase. It's multiplayer only and the community is pretty much dead, if you login today you will most likely find all servers empty. A problem far too many old, indie or non-mainstream multiplayer games face.
Try it with a group of friends or join a Steam group that is dedicated to organizing AirBuccaneers sessions.

AirBuccaneers pitches two teams of air-balloon crews, "Vikings" and "Buccaneers", against each other in exciting ship-on-ship battles. Each player assumes a role of his or her choice, a role that can be switched fluently during the game. Pilot a ballon and order yor crew around as a helmsman, man a cannon as cannoneer, repair damage done to your balloon, engage in ranged or melee combat (yes, enemy ships can be grapple-hooked onto and boarded), set up floating mines or support a teammate (for example one of the cannoneers to allow him to fire at a faster rate).

Cannons are far from accurate, so skill in this regard doesn't matter as much as in many other first person action games and if you consider your aim still not good enough that's not a problem either: Just assume another role that suits you better.

As you may already have guessed, teamwork is everything. The fact that you're totally dependent on your fellow crew members simply doesn't allow to play as a lone wolf and leads to almost organically developing teamwork very fast.

The only persistent element of the game are the skill trees, a different one for each role. Which path you take is not entirely up to you but progression is assigned automatically depending on your actions during matches. To me, this feature feels superfluous, I never had the feeling that it influences the outcome of a match at all. Maybe that's because every perk is evened out with a debuff and that's probably better than having new players start at a disadvantage.

Instead, the game allows for imbalance in another way: Since players can switch teams any time they want in absence of an autobalance system it leaves it entirely in the hands of the participants to form evenly sized teams.

In conlusion, I'd recommend AirBuccaneers to everyone if it weren't for the lack of a player base. It certainly is a game that deserves to be revived, I still hope that it will at some point but wouldn't hold my breath.

I don't think this game gets enough credit. It's unique, inspires team play, is kinda funny, and it's enjoyable. It's downfall is that it's entirely PvP and not enough people play it. Good fun, if there are enough players.
