Gaming Nexus: Buccaneer: The Pursuit of Infamy Review

Gaming Nexus writes: "Buccaneer: The Pursuit of Infamy, from Stickman Studios, is a decent little arcade-style shoot-em-up with a pirate-y flair. There's really not all that much depth, and very little realism, but there is a certain charm to this title. Taken in small doses, Buccaneer works well as a casual game. Just don't expect to spend countless hours glued to the keyboard for this one.

Buccaneer is, quite simply, all about blowing stuff up. This is in no way a wooden ship simulator, other than the fact that players control various pirate vessels from the Age of Sail. Using a standard WASD layout, players can be up and running quickly with little attention paid to nautical truisms such as tacking, currents, or, (unfortunately) even physics. These ships can go full-throttle with little regard to wind, they can almost stop on a dime, and, perhaps most shockingly, they can pull into reverse without a second thought. Firing cannons is just as simple-the left mouse button lets loose all port cannons, while the right triggers the starboard barrage. And that's about it."
