I want to love this game, I really do but this has to be the worst game I've ever played due to a lack of support, bugs, glitches and a very lacking game in general.
When I first started this game up I had no idea what to expect never having played a pirate themed game before. The first problem was the voice over's. Terrible.
I got into the game and found it rather basic but did enjoy it's subtle charm. I realise that the land missions were a bit dated but honestly the sailing around I had no problem with at all. Once I had the hedgehog (best ship in the game IMO) my enjoyment went up even more. Unfortunately this is the only good thing I'll be saying about this game.
When I hit the half way mark I realised some of the achievements were buggy and had not unlocked for things I had gone for. After multiple attempts some of them unlocked. I realise achievements aren't for everyone but if I can grab a couple while I'm playing and enjoying a game I see it as a "misc quest" of sorts.
Shortly after this issue I came across another. When I opened the menu in game and tried to save my game I would CTD. I played around with it for an hour trying to fix the issue by reloading, going to new areas, etc and nothing worked. I never needed to use the in game load option but that also bugged out and caused a CTD.
I discovered during my testing that at least the game auto saved when leaving land so I had an annoying way to at least progress to finish the game.
The I came to worst problem I've ever come across in a game ever. The final mission is broken. So badly that even if you get past the first bug or issue there are another 4 waiting for you. I re loaded and tried multiple things multiple times and nothing worked. Oh and this issue, it's been un answered and around since 2011. Everywhere I looked all I found was more people with the same issues and a lucky few, had issues beyond where I was up to in the final mission. All in all I found 5 different common game breaking bugs with the final mission. I cannot get past the second out of the five of them.
Overall I wanted to love this game, I forgave its poor design choices on the land maps, I got use to the terrible voice over's and surprisingly I even got use to having to use the auto save feature. The fact that the final mission is that much of a problem for so many people is unacceptable. Especially since nothing has been done about it for so long and the game is still available for purchase. 0/10
