I have been trying for months to like this game. I have played hours of it, trying to build a character that is fun to play. But even once I got the hang of the fighting style and stopped dying every five minutes or so, the game still felt like it lacked something. The storyline bored me to tears, because it was so simple. The main quest was something I was not even interesting in doing, for heaven's sake, my pirate could care less about helping out the King. Even the other characters, who I thought would florish and grow as you talked to them, stayed rather flat and unaffected by your decisions.
As a fan of Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and Dragon Age, I tried very hard to enjoy this game, but it did nothing for me. I found that I was forcing myself to play, rather than actually enjoying it.
