Potential all around

This story could have so much more. Somehow the writer got off track and game play mechanics in your choices started to not only be silly but also have little to no effect on the game. I did enjoy the pirate mentality, the pirate talk and the history of the story. If this writer took more time and a bit more effort this story could be almost as good as the hero project series.

Great Potential

This game had the makings for a great story... I mean, who doesn't like pirates! But the execution of the story left a lot to be desired. The experiences started out great and the first few scenes were really fun and had a lot of color, but the rest of the story after that felt rushed and linear. Your decisions seemed to lack impact which made me wonder what the point of it all was. And the character development went south really quickly about mid story. Overall, I loved the idea and the concepts that were introduced, and the characters could have been really exciting, but in the end it none of it really came together and it all seemed to fall apart. Sadly, not worth the purchase.

An uninteresting bore.

Short response: This game is an uninteresting bore, don't buy it.

Long response: The only reason this gets 2 stars instead of 1 is that I can see the potential for a great game here. The ideas for the magic are interesting, and pirates are awesome. That said, I can't reccomend this gane. The characters are flat, the choices uninspired, and the scenarios dull. I pushed through, hoping desperately that there would be something great, but there wasn't. The game ends in a rushed climax which left me feeling hollow. This was not the pirate adventure I signed up for.
