"Unless you hate fun, you'll love it."

1UP

"I missed the original Pirates! back in the old days of the PC, but playing this revival gives me an inkling of why it's such a venerated name. It's varied, addictive, and replayable, with a big difference between the experiences available at lower and higher levels of difficulty."

Gamespot

"With its engrossing gameplay, impeccable pacing, and charming presentation, Sid Meier's Pirates! is quite simply one of the most enjoyable games to come out in years."

WorthPlaying

"Pirates! is one of those rare games that can engage you for hours each day while never getting old. I would find myself always wanting just one more voyage, just one more ship to board, just a few more treasure hunts before calling it a night."
