Discover what it takes to become one of the most famous pirates in history! Based on Sid Meier’s original masterpiece, Pirates! invites you to live the life of a 17th-century Buccaneer in this epic, open-ended seafaring adventure.

Test your skills as a privateer flying the Jolly Roger across the Caribbean. Duel enemy captains, exchange plank-shattering broadsides and seize valuable booty, woo fair maidens, dig up buried treasure, and of course plunder unsuspecting ports. As your reputation and skills grow, so will the size and quality of your crew, and your ability to take on larger enemy ships, raid heavily fortified ports, and locate ancient treasure. There's a whole cast of interesting and dangerous characters to meet, mysteries to solve, and exotic island destinations to discover.

It’s a game of high adventure, where brave and skilled players battle for treasure and glory. Those who succeed achieve great fame and wealth – and those who fail rest forever in Davy Jones’ locker!

  1. Didn't work so well
    by JRJ, Netherlands - Jul 25th 2015

    The game is quite endearing and full of charming moments. It just gets very repetitive really quickly, at least for me.

    There was also a graphics problem, which made transitions between scenes glitch out. Not a big deal, but it ruins the immersion.

  2. Gameplay master
    by thadd, USA - May 31st 2015

    I played this game avidly when I was a kid, and then picked it up again last year. I wish they would remaster it. the storyline is less than compelling, but you will soon lose sight of that in the all to fun ship battles, ship upgrades, pillaging towns, faction wars, sword fighting, and sailing the caribbean. 8/10 would play again.

  3. Best pirate game
    by Mlha Mlhos, Czech Republic - Jan 10th 2015

    It is the best pirate game I have ever played. It is dynamic, not like in Port Royal, u just play and play and advance in your adventure. I like the dancing add-on a lot. Also the battles with cities are great. If your crew starts to be annoyed from long sailing, go to loot a city and this will do :-) Only one think I did not like - wanted to marry more daughters of the governors and it did not allow me…. :-)
