I'd really like to love this game, i almost do, but it's got so many flaws it's hard not to condemn it to hell and back.
First impressions are awesome! It looks great, sounds great except for the worst Voice Over in the history of videogames.
But.... It is so so so slooooow. Sailing is slow but it's pretty and things to do, and upgrades and new ships help. But sailing from west to east every damn mission sucks. Land missions, thats the worst part. No AI at all it seems, if it's there it's very random but with a slight tendancy to be forgetful and dumb. The walking on land is even slower, and the Health regen is rediculous. Combat is way to flawed and should be what combat straight out of an Alpha build might look like.
No minimap sucks. Quest rewards would be nice to see. So many important things are not explained in any way. Give me some numbers or hints on what stuff does!
But the game has so many good features, like base upgrades and stats and NPCs that can join, ship upgrades and special items. But nothing feels finished.
I'm sorry to let this one go, i can not recommend it i'm afraid.
