Hm, I enjoyed Choice of Pirates rather throughly, over all I give it a 7.5/10 it’s not the first game by the community I’ve played however it really struck a cord with me. It was cleverly written and while a short play through when I really sat down during lunch it proved to make me want to play it several more times. It does the story very well, I’ve long wanted to see a COG featuring pirates.
It was easy to get through and offered many routes which I played through and got four of five different endings. However it wasn’t just some run of the mill pirate RPG. It had magic and while that might not be saying much because Crimson Sails (I also love) had magic in it I find the magic in Choice of Pirates to be more pleasing and more useful then the magic in Crimson Sails. There was something odd about Choice of Pirates, I found it had an odd mixture of Pirates of the Caribbeans mixed with Assassins Creed: Black Flag It was an odd mixture to be sure but it offered a light hearted jest at the pirates genre as a whole. Offering subtle references to acutal pirate lore and history as well as people and places. (By subtle I mean about as subtle as a cannon ball through the broadside). To be honest I’d been looking forward Choice of Pirates for two weeks. Now for the scores of the over all game.
Romance Options: 7/10
Price: $ 2.99
In closing choice of pirates is well worth it’s price and is one of the better games I’ve seen so far this year, I hope that the mind behind it shall give us more great stories and choices in the future. ~ 68th C
