PotBS - Review @ CVG
Another review of PotBS over at CVG by Tim Edwards. A mixed review with a final score of 7.2/10.
Once you get going, it isn't long before you realise that you're playing Elite on the high-seas; trading with other players for the goods they need, and running a profit/loss spreadsheet in a separate window.
This is fundamentally fun. I'm pleased that Pirates does this. But there are basic flaws. Now the game is up and running, and not in beta (I'm reviewing this off a retail version, after the game has gone on sale) we can see how the developers' vision is playing out.
