Designed as a thrilling blend of role-playing and action Pirates of the Caribbean takes place in a large group of Caribbean islands during the golden age of piracy and high seas adventure. You will take command of a ship and its crew, swordfight with other captains, accept and complete daring quests, chase rumors of dangers and riches, and change allegiances amongst the colonial powers in the game. Through skill and daring, you will have the ability to obtain more power than the toughest captains in history ever dreamed possible. You will be able to customize your captain, crew, skills, and attributes to their individual liking. During shore leave on the many fanciful islands, players can interact with townspeople and shopkeepers to replenish stores of ammo and crew, and explore the wilderness in search of adventure and treasure!
Very good game, great adventure and fun naval battles. It got a lot booed because it's been released in a pretty poor state and even afterward Bethesda abandoned it but still I had a lot of fun finishing that game vanilla back in 2003.
Now the community fixed a lot of problems, enhanced the gameplay and released a shitload of excellent content. In my humble opinion Pirates of the Caribbean is a must have if you're not afraid of niche titles and wanna play something else than the casual AAA crap we get a lot these days.
I'm not afraid to give Pirates of the Caribbean an honest 7/10. And I don't get paid like most pro reviews to give EA and Activision games the best scores regardless of how ****** and flawed their games are.
