Pirates of Black Cove reviews and comments

Very bad game, has a very simplified gameplay does not feel the progress of the game everything seems the same q improvements are just about to be enemies can destroy all kinds of boat with the initial boat Q you give, the whole game you can with that boat when it is damaged and L Boat does not feel the need to repair it and q is triggered so fast Q is simply to click many times and and the repairs are very simplified do not feel the need to avoid Q hit you and q is very easy to repair without need to go to port , the map is very lacking in aesthetics if there are many things and shipwrecks and everything but it feels like Q are to be, the story is nothing of the other world an adventurer Q wants to know there is beyond the terrestrial part Q leaves much desire for combat lacks fluency lacks the Feeling of combat and Q seems something that has to pass Q lacks the suspense of combat fear of who will die but this removes it with the bottles of grog that you recover in full combat feels that it is very easy Not to buy it is not worth

Unlike popular opinion, Pirates of Black Cove is a game that I liked very much. While It doesn't have the complexity of other style games like Sid Meier Pirates! It can keep us entertained for a few hours because of its simplicity, making it more like a casual game than strategy. In principle we find that the game is in Spanish, so those who have difficulties with English can understand in its entirety. However there is not much to understand since it does not have too many texts more than some simple dialogues but loaded with humor or the description of the missions. The graphic aspect is well cared for without being something of another world and the Caribbean music will company you during the whole trip varying when you enter in combat or other tense situations. As Soon as we start the game, we can opt for three different heroes with different abilities, some long distance and another melee (I honestly do not remember that skill had the third). On the other hand, the game map is quite wide with various cities for looting and a lot of boats to destroy or take. In Addition We can find objects that will allow us to unlock new weapons or ships, or objects that allow us to develop potions that will be useful in the combat by land. Ground Combat? Yes, in addition to fighting in the seas we can fight with our hero on the mainland helped by a retinue of mercenaries that we can hire in certain cities. It Is Important to note that the game has several boats that we can buy with its features and in turn, a series of upgrades that we can do. On the other hand, there are several different types of mercenaries that we can hire to help us battle ashore as mentioned before. Finally, the negative aspects of the game while not many are really important. The main sin of Pirates of Black Cove is to be repetitive. After completing a couple of missions, looted a couple of cities and destroyed a couple of boats, you'll realize that the rest is the same. The other mistake, is to be an easy game: with the initial boat if you learn to use it correctly you can sink the largest and toughest ship without much difficulty. Unlike others, I have not found bugs or problems in the gameplay. No more to add I want to highlight that in my opinion is more a game to play casually without taking it as a strategy game. On the other hand, I advise to buy it as part of a bundle or on offer given that 10 USD seems a high price for what it offers.
