Sid Meier's Pirates!

1. Introduction

REQUIREMENTS: 1Ghz or higherCPU, Win 98/SE/ME/2000/XP, 256MB memory, 8x or faster CD-ROM, Ati 8500 or GeForce 3 or higher, 1.4GB free space


Very few games were expected with the enthusiasm from the game community as the new Sid Meier's Pirates! Pirates has its own distinct history. It was in 1987 that Microprose issued the first Pirates which immediately became a hit. The role of a pirate who crosses the Caribbean, capturing ships, searching for treasures and looting wealthy towns, kept millions of gamers glued to their screens (myself among them!). Six years later, Microprose released "Pirates Gold!" a remake of the original game. The game had many bugs - a patch later fixed many of them - but it also became a classic. Now, 18 years after its first release, a new Pirates (again from Sid Meier) is here and has to reach the high expectations set by its two "hall-of-fame" predecessors.
