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. Still a classic ...
    by Karl F. Davie Burgdorf, USA - Apr 3rd 2016

    This is a great game that was updated for a new generation of gamers. It is fun and unlike so many of the other games that places too much on graphics. The graphics a simple; the game is fun; and the gameplay is simple. I've played this game sine the original "Pirates!" back in the day and can say it is still fun.

    The most unique part of this game is the total lack of linear gameplay. You really get to chose your path and get rewarded (or punished) for it.

    There are some weird bugs that have caused my MacPro to crash — HARD. It has happeded sever times on this game and it has NEVER happeded with any other program.

    I hadn't known about this game until I bumped into it here, but it is a very fun, albeit simple, game that is worth some time.

  3. 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.
