Description

The Chinese branch of 2K Games reprises one of the most universally acclaimed titles of the early days of computer gaming with Sid Meier's Pirates for Wii. The game follows the multi-genre design of the 1987 original, while updating both presentation and gameplay to incorporate the Wii's motion controls during ship-boarding swordfights. Gamers take the role of an unremarkable ship captain who is destined for greatness. As in the original game, players will set their own course toward this destiny, be it through diplomacy, subterfuge, or brute force. Sid Meier's Pirates explores multiple aspects of a swashbuckler's life in the Caribbean during the Age of Sail, from fast-paced sword fights and naval combat, to ravenous raids of ports and merchants, to political manipulation of colonial powers in the region. Wii owners also get exclusive bombardment and lock-picking mini-games. Pirates players will encounter an unusually wide array of challenges, from arcade/action-style battles, to strategic empire-building in the 17th-century Caribbean, to personality-driven role-playing. Each new game develops along its own unique course, according to the decisions made, the victories attained, and defeats suffered. Sid Meier's Pirates is designed to allow players to progress as they choose through a diverse selection of non-linear, individual missions and challenges. The player's choices and actions can have effects on the game world, however, and as they become more powerful and feared, captains will begin to see their influence all across the Caribbean. Each adventure spans the captain's entire lifetime, and the ultimate goal is to eventually retire, at a ripe old age, with as much wealth and status as possible.
