Take my starting ship and do battle with the Spanish Galleons. 8 cannons vs 40 cannons.
First 10 minutes of the game and you have one of the biggest ships in the game, dance with the governor's daughter, own your own estate and declare war on the whole Spanish empire.

A full game purely for the 'Pirate' genre. Not some half ♥♥♥♥♥ wannabe.
If you're not happy with any ships, pick a fight with them. Not happy because a port merchant ripped you off during trading goods, bombard the port and take it over. Governor doesn't want to let you see his daughter, control the port and change the governor. Unsatisfied because a country sunk your ship? No problem there, wipe their country off the map by conquering all their ports.

This is a game where skills can beat brute strenght. Wind, ship size, upgrades, tactics and rum is all that matters. Arrrrr!

One of the best, if not THE best pirate games of all time.

Amazing openworld gameplay, the sword duels are a bit meh but the sea battles are FANTASTIC. The storyline is repeatitive, but not terrible. 9/10

★★★☆☆

Sid Meier's Pirates! is a light strategy pirate adventure game. After a mutiny that put you at the helm of your own ship, you and your pirate crew arrive in the Caribbean to find fortune as you seek to avenge your family from those that did it wrong.

Pros: Every tropes you ever saw about pirates are there: build your reputation and ranking with the four European factions, while also dealing with the clergy, the natives and the pirate community, compete against the most notorious pirates in history while using pieces of maps to find their buried treasure or the lost cities of gold, do ship-to-ship combat against raider, merchant, military or other pirate vessels, flirt with the governor's daughters by impressing her in the ballroom. The game is easy to pick up regardless of difficulty level, navigating, ship-to-ship combat and swordplay are simple. 27 different type of ships sail the sea, any of which can be captured, each with different storage and crew capacity, optimal wind angle, speed and turning speed. Ship-specific upgrades are available at various ports, capturing ships might get get you permanent specialists for your crew, a variety of items can be purchased in taverns. The graphics are bright and colorful and animations are smooth.

Cons: The graphics are showing their age. Sid Meier's Pirates! borders on the casual game, as it's basically a collection of multiple mini-games: fighting, dancing, ship-to-ship combat, swordplay, city sacking, all mini-games with little depth. City conquering strategy is extremely simplified, and the game lacks any realism of the hardships of being at sea. Capturing ships will become repetitive after a few playthrough. The map is always the same, varied only by the chosen timeline or occasional city conquest of a rival European faction.

Verdict: Overall, this is a fun game, and that's all it aims to be: fun. It isn't a seafaring simulator, it isn't an action swordfighter, it isn't a trade simulator and definitively not a strategy game. If you're looking for a nice, easy and fun game worth its price, then I'll recommand you give Sid Meier's Pirates! a try!

I used an "Indian War Canoe" to take a massive galleon, then sold the galleon at Havana, romanced the governor's daughter, then used the same war canoe to take Havana.

I don't know if it's more impressive or sad that this game is 10 years old and is still the best pirate game around.

Beyond the nostalgia I feel for this game, it is genuinely an incredibly well made game for its time. Open world (ocean) exploration, controll over your fleet and what kind of ships are in it, as well as multiple quest lines and missions to do (become the most notorious pirate, get with a governors daughter, save your long lost family etc). The combat is easy to get the hang of (it's basically just timed events, but with combos) but if you pick a more difficult playing mode it legitimately can be excruciatingly dificult, so you can't get bored with it really as long as you keep yourself on a game difficulty that works for you. I deeply recommend this game, especially when it's on sale.

Literally one of the best games I have ever played. Not even ♥♥♥♥ing kidding. The combat is very good and the open world is revolutionary for 2005-era games. And it's quite cheap. ESPECIALLY ON SALE! PRAISE GABEN!!

While I don't have many hours clocked on steam for this game, I played hundreds of hours of it a decade ago. I basically bought it in case I ever have kids, or run into people who for some friggin reason haven't played this jewel. Aspects of it haven't exactly aged well. It's incredibly male-centric, you can't play some rockin pirate queen and romance the mayors of towns or their sons - and that's a shame.

The game could use some basic mod tools to open it up for a new generation - especially since a ground-up remake is unlikely.

STILL - the gameplay itself is perfect. Each aspect of the game is deep enough to mesh with the other elements, and it gets surprisingly complex at the meta level. Watch a gameplay video on youtube, if it looks delightful to you - buy it - at any price. If it looks like something you wouldn't enjoy playing, give it a pass.

Regardless I consider this to be THE definitive pirate game. (as of 2015)

Collect booty, defeat other pirates, capture cities, date daughters of governors, this game has it all. Living the pirate life is all fun in this game. Most definitely worth the price.

Sail the seven seas and find your long-lost family, duel with pirates, dance your heart out and rise up the ranks. What more could you want from life? Did I mention you can command your own fleet?
