Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Completely open world
The main goal is definitely to battle ships, but you can do anything your heart desires from building farms and taverns in your ports, to attacking ports for a ransom, and rolling dice aggainst an AI for money.
Pro Great game mechanics
From raising or lowering sails too maneuver faster and boarding ships with your crew, to transporting people from port to port and finding survivors out in the sea, this game packs a solid punch when it comes to various ways of doing the same thing. It adds logical complications to normal tasks, such as wind, and not being able to sail up against it. All in all, even if there is so much stuff to worry about, the experience is very enjoyable, and filled with surprises.
Pro Real world
Although the fastest way to get around is to use a 2d map, if you wish to do so, you can jump in a ship and sail to any location in 3d. The whole map is seamless, and contained in one scene. The game even encourages the players to do so by adding hidden docks at strategic locations, giving a sum of money to the player when the ports are found. And by putting ship wrecks with treasure island maps, wich can only be reached in open world.
Pro Good Graphics
Although it does not have the best graphics out there, the game deffinetly looks nice compaired to many others, and is well optimised; wich means it can run on even budget devices.
Con Can get boring
Although there is allot to do in this game, once you have tried it all, and own the biggest ship, there is nothing very exiting left.
