Get enslaved and sent to work in a mine, escape with your fellow prisoners, beat all the guards, then rob convoys with an army of former slaves. Save some gold, buy your first plantation and get rich by trading sugar.

Marry a governor's daughter, acquire a colony to rule and declare war against Spain. Spend all your savings on cannons, lose 10 boats and a corvette during a sea siege. Rush in first during a breach of the fortress in Havana and die from your own flagship's friendly fire.

I'm a big fan of Warband and Fire & Sword but this is really disappointing.
I do not recommend this game. Incredibly frustrating and just doesn't feel polished at all.

Eh.... it's not complete, ships don't do anything when you boarda ship, it's just... terrible.... the cities aren't really intact with the ground,it is nothing like M&B (Mount & Blade) Ships, i'm okay with if we actually got to maneuver them on the ship and shoot cannons myself, by manning each cannon myself n stuff, it's just not worth it unless it's like 5 dollars, any more than that, it's a rip off.... Now ima refund this game, would be nice if it were complete.....

In my opinion it's not worth it. Plenty of mods are adopting the traits of this game and arent as laggy. Plus bannerlord comes out this year, why waste money on this? Sorry but it's a no.

I tried to like this game, but it's laggy and poorly made. The command system in battles is crap and music is damn repeative and annoying. Buy Warband instead of this.

Recent patch bug fixed.. game is more playable now, despite the occurance of lag after a couple battles.

Until achievements are introduced to this game, I will have to down vote it because the communists promised achievements since last year and have not kept their promise..



Edit:
1) Tutorial messages are too fast for reading.. not even nerds can read that fast.
2) My 5th rate can handle 45 crew upon boarding.. yet I never saw more than 32 on any boarding session.. not to mention when i battle vs. a 150 crew cutter (yes, a pieace of crap cutter).. the cutter somehow can spawn the entire 150 in the session but i'm only allowed 32? Get real commies...
3) Frequent crashing such as "hash vector", and many more weird type crashes
4) During sea siege assaults, player starts trumpling like a horse on deck, and all other party members stutter in movement
5) Text typo mistake when promoted to 4th rank.. instead of saying "can use 36lb cannon"... it says "16lb cannon"
6) On rate ships during boarding.. ladder is kind of messed up and you must jump to continue your way up
7) Graphic issues during sea siege assault if leading assault before bombarding first
8) Renown and XP gained for missions are too much.. making it too easy to rank, especially in the artillery quest. 50 renown per friendly character mission also is a little too much.
9) Player item availability from the very start.. would have been nicer to anticipate the more advanced armor and weapons rather than have them available from the first week.
10) During nighttime battles.. the sky is glowing bright yet the ground and everything in it is very dark.. is tough fighting battle especially with those native monkeys jumping around you

There is like no pirate open world single player action and advanture rpg sandbox like sailking rpgs like elder scrolls but open world like and sailing and boarding....
I was hopping this game be good but it isnt the sailing combat awful for some thing thats a major and involved around sailing so much in this game it was painful to play it wasnt fun the controls whre really bad.

The map land exploring was awful too you go to ports when u never clicked on them that are in the wrong direction even.
If you get capturd there no way to get a ship ether its awful once u lose a ship and get captured its game over the game dosnt give u any other means to get off islands or to get a ship so if u end up on a island with enamy factions u can't access there ship yards to get a ship.

Over all this game i give it a 3 out of 10.

If your looking for a pirates sailing explorer game defintly go play Pirates of the burning sea instead this Blood & Gold caribbean feels like a awful version of that game.

As of May 27, 2016 (the release of the campaign DLC), the game is still riddled with [obvious] bugs that make the game almost unplayable.

Since the game uses Mount & Blade's engine, you can imagine how most infantry combat works: you've played it on big open fields in the other games and the AI seems somewhat capable. You see them trying to scale cliffs and they run through rivers to get to you, but it's no biggie, right? Nothing a few arrows can't handle to deal with it.

In this game, however, the maps are highly intricate and have a feeling of verticality to them. There's multiple story structures; debris on the ground... TL;DR there's a TON of stuff for the AI to get stuck on. And what's worse, sometimes they spawn in areas even you can't get to, thus making battles and missions sometimes utterly pointless.

There's a lot of issues with this game. I've only played it for roughly three hours--enough time to amass a fleet and capture/govern my own little corner of the carribean, but in those three hours I've had to alt-f4 and/or replay missions so many times just to get anything done.

Until there's serious patchwork done to the game I wouldn't recommend it irregardless of how much or how little they charge you for it. It's just not a good time.

This is a qualified yes. I got the game on sale at a reasonable price for what it delivered. Full price I would vote down because of glitches and bugs.
Some reviewers have compared it to Sid Meirs Pirates. It is nothing like Pirates, it comes from Mount & Blade which it shows very clearly. Comparing the two is like looking at apples and oranges. They are both fruit, both round, both from a tree but nothing like each other.
It is a fun romp in the pirate world but basically a mod of Mount & Blade not something just using the same engine. Areas it does very well such as boarding an enemy ship. Ship to ship combat, not so much. Often I would close to fire a broadside and abruptly I was suddenly in a boarding action? Really? So if I can see the other ship on the screen to fire a broadside it can board me? So you need to fire blindly looking for a little marker that says the other ship is in range but not on the screen.
Getting quests to chase outlaws or robbers on the islands is much harder than finding smugglers. Why? They disappear into towns, platations, or even coves never to be found. Since you can get on the island only at towns or coves, by the time you do, they are too close to what I mentioned so they are gone. Also when you leave your ships, you and your crew will be on horseback. Horses on a pirate ship? Makes sense only when you remember it is Mount & Blade not a game using the same engine.
Gliches are plenty as well. Walk around town and talk to anyone, their image superimposes on your own or blanks out completely. At the sale price this can be overlooked, at full price you left scratching your head what the devs were thinking. Didn\'t they test such basic items before release?
Then there are the bugs. I accepted an assignment to go to a cove to protect a shipment for a governor, fought off some attackers, and returned the governor for my reward. Abruptly I am being attacked, the daughter I supposed rescued? was suddenly there, and we were all killed. I\'m going who, what, where? Game over.
So for all these reasons I suggest getting it on sale otherwise wait until it is for it is not worth the full price as it currently stands.

I'll start off by saying, The game isn't ♥♥♥♥. i find a lot of fun role playing as a pirate, taking ships, raiding convos. the ship battles is pretty fun too, i find it easy to control my ship and can turn the tides in the whole battle by my maneuvers. also the trading in the game is awesome if you're looking to roleplay as a trader. go to a settlement and they have over 200 tobacco? grab some of that and sell to a place that doesn't have any? you making bank right there. the combat is like your regular mount and blade but with guns. I think it's definitely worth 20$ since there is endless amount of ♥♥♥♥ you can do. the only bad thing about this game is all the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ girl hair's they have for creating your character. where's my ♥♥♥♥ing mohawk?

Avast, many people compare this game to SM Pirates and they are similar however with the indepth combat, the free roaming cities, dynamic events and endless options and oppurtunities I think it's unfair to compare this to any other games and instead state that it's a well built, still being updated, fun and varied Age of Sail RPG

I quite like this game! You see, it's all about expectations. If you are looking for a game that'll take up weeks of your time, this is not it. It has its bugs and mistakes, but overall, it's by all means an enjoyable game.

This is a fun game but you have to be willing to learn how to play it. It feels like warband but the deeper you go into the game the more cool diffrences you will find.I hope they make cool mods for this game!

The concept of this game sounds awesome and I decided to give it a try, despite the reviews. That was a bad call.

B&G: Caribbean is one of the buggiest games I have every played, it's performance is horrible and it frequently crashes. Even if you somehow manage to solve the crashing then I find it hard to believe that anyone would stick with it for more than a couple of hours anyways, the game's map feels smaller than the standard Mount and Blade: Warbands map and in general the game feels very bland. Combat is what you would expect, standard M&B, not the worst ever but nothing new either.

The pricing of this game is horrid, they're currently charging 20€, 5€ would be a much more appropriate price considering it's shortcomings. Don't be fooled by it's concept, this game is not worthy of your time!
