Pirates of the Burning Sea - GameZone Review

Review by Michael Lafferty

"PotBS offers different fare from the usual assortment of MMOs in release, and that is a good thing. The game, though, is not one that can be truly appreciated inside a week. It takes time to delve into the nuances of the game mechanics and to explore the depth of what is offered."

Gameplay: 8.3
A few minor glitches and the UI needs to be tweaked to be a bit more friendly but generally the game controls and plays well.

Graphics: 8.4
The character animations are not that strong, but the sea and ship elements are very nice.

Sound: 7.5
Nothing out of the ordinary and a lot of what you might expect.

Difficulty: Medium

Concept: 9.0
This is a well-conceived game. It has elements of realm-versus-realm combat, a player-driven economy and solid classes.

Multiplayer: 8.8
The online community can be reticent to jump in and attack a location, but they are generally there to answer questions and help in other ways. This is a solid player base.

Overall: 8.4
PotBS offers different fare from the usual assortment of MMOs in release, and that is a good thing. The game, though, is not one that can be truly appreciated inside a week. It takes time to delve into the nuances of the game mechanics and to explore the depth of what is offered. While it has been a while in the making, what has been released is quite enjoyable.
