PotBS - Review @ Gaming Heaven

by Inauro, 2008-02-04 20:50:30

Gaming Heaven weighs anchor with Flying Lab's Pirates of the Burning Sea.

I’m a bit torn about Pirates of the Burning Sea. On one hand the game delivers plenty of new features that other MMOs would do good to copy. The naval combat is a tacticians dream and with a good group of players naval battles resemble actual naval engagements. The economy is well designed as well, with crafted items actually needed by players and pirates hard at work to prevent them from being delivered. To top it off, the setting is very original and a breath of fresh air. On the other hand the game is very unfriendly to newcomers, has a horrible sword combat system and the economy is right now still half asleep. With time the game could turn out to be one of the best MMOs, but right now only MMO buffs will be truly able to enjoy it.
