Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships Review

Gamepyre is the first English website to publish a review of Playlogic and Akella’s naval RPG sequel, Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships. The score is a solid 73/100, with these concluding paragraphs:

If you can get past the poor sound or the lack of visual stimuli, and just focus on the grand idea of being a seaman, either a pirate or on the payroll of one of the 4 great powers: Spain, France, England or the Netherlands, this game can be very addictive and very fun. But, it can also be very stressful and lacking if you are expecting a game full of smooth sailing. Smooth sailing is usually not what you will encounter.

With a good chance for failure on your part during missions, mediocre sound and graphics and not the smoothest controls on the market, usually I would say ‘stay away from this title’. But there is something else about this game. It draws you in. It opens up the waters like no game has done before. Since this game is only 30 bucks brand new, it might just be 30 bucks worth investing especially if you have a thing for pirates and for the life of a seaman. This is just one of those games that I can’t say whether I recommend it or not. Part of me wants to say stay away from this title while the other part of me wants to babble silly pirate lingo towards you. I just hope that after reading the entire review and after looking at the screenshots you can make the choice for yourself. As I said, the addicted part of me loves this game, but the reviewer part of me absolutely hates it.
