Sid Meier's Pirates! - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (731 words)
The game is a simulation of the life of a pirate in the Spanish Main in approximately the 17th century.
The player does not in fact take on the role of a pirate, but rather that of a privateer, in the service of Spain, Holland, England, or France (though his loyalties may change over the course of the game).
Gameplay is open-ended; the player may choose to go after enemy shipping or towns, or hunt pirates, or seek buried treasure or long-lost family members, or even avoid violence altogether and seek to increase his wealth through trade.
Railroad Tycoon Deluxe, Pirates! Gold (729 words)
Gold is truly a visual feast, with hand-painted screens that have the feel of Caribbean watercolors.
Gold features three main arenas of action: sword fighting, ocean-faring battles, and land battles.
Gold is a more spectacular upgrade than Railroad Tycoon Deluxe: even if you already own the original Pirates!", this new version is certainly worth looking into.
