Out of Eight writes: "Of all the seafaring time periods, the one that's most famous is the mid-1600's in the Caribbean: age of the pirates. Maybe it's the thrill of adventure, or maybe it's Johnny Depp's rugged handsomeness, but these nefarious acts of villainy have received quite a bit of attention in both cinema and in computer gaming. Pirate-themed computer games seem to fall into two categories: adventure games like Sea Dogs and action games like Pirates!. Buccaneer: The Pursuit of Infamy falls into the latter category, putting you on a modest ship in pursuit of infamy (I read subtitles!). This budget-priced game takes a more casual approach to the setting, as opposed to the more realistic and arduous titles of years gone by. Does this more light-hearted action translate into a more entertaining game?"
