IGN Pirates: The Key of Dreams Review

Pirates -- and IGN is not referring to the excellent Sid Meier's Pirates series -- is apparently a franchise that Oxygen wants to extend into a multi-sku franchise: later this year Nintendo DS owners will be hitting the charted waters in Pirates on the High Seas, but as an early look at the design the developer produced a WiiWare version set in the game's universe: Pirates and the Key of Dreams. It's not a very good advertisement for things to come, unfortunately. This game is a little light on energy – even the voice actor recorded for the only pirate-themed voice sample seems a little bored – and the design is drawn out to boring levels in the single player. The multiplayer is promising but its flaws are too huge to ignore.

The story is too old to be commented.
