has posted a new review of Disney
's Pirates of the Caribbean Online
. The game allows players to experience the adventures made famous in the films and explore beyond those boundaries in a quest to become the most legendary pirate on the high seas. Macworld gave the game a score of 3 out of 5 mice.
From the review:
The sailing is perhaps the best realized of the game’s many aspects. You can pirate and crew your own ship, gradually upgrading it through experience and money, or you can take part in someone else’s crew and man the cannons. Crews that go into combat together get combat bonuses and so there’s an incentive to play cooperatively with other players online. One of the best thrills of the game is captaining a ship and ordering your fellow players to give a full broadside, watching with glee as the enemy ships goes down in a hail of cannon fire. You can also get a group together to board an enemy capital ship and take on its crew.
Later, you’ll learn teleportation techniques to cut down on the time-consuming sailing between islands. While sailing, you’ll regularly encounter British Navy, ghost pirate, and East Indian Trading company ships, along with your fellow online players. Player-versus-player experiences are limited; with sea engagements, you can have crew battles or do the Spanish/French side quests, while land engagements involve joining sparsely populated battle servers that require you to take on an undead form (wouldn’t want the kids to be scared by human-on-human violence!).
