How would you like to see this show up at your doorstep? My mom won a Xbox game console at a company party last night. Obviously, she has no clue what it was. So I said, “Give it to me! I’ll put it to good use!” The console came with a game called “Pirates” since that was the theme of the party.
Pirates is a role-playing game. You start the story as a little boy. Pirates storm in and take your family and fortune. You managed to escape, but your family does not. Several years later as a grown man, you find yourself riding the seas of the Carrebean searching and wondering what has become of your family. You gather clues from people you meet. You pillage and plunder for wealth that was rightfully yours.
The game is entertaining. The fencing scrimmages are fun, but seem to lack the moves I’m used to in Mortal Kombat. The graphics are adequate, but not cutting edge. It takes a while to get used to a controller with force feedback. It tends to send me in panic mode when I feel vibrations. I can’t wait to get some cheap games for this console when I go overseas.
