Just recieved this, in Britain it was called "Tortuga."

The game is basically Sid Meir's "Pirates" (Sans sword fighting and ground combat) revamped and with with first rate graphics.

Excellent sea combat with easy to control ships, try to advance through the great age of piracy, looking forward to reviewing this, the first few playings have been great fun. :)

"no matter how many ships you have in your convoy, you can only take one into battle" Ouch. You can and do however, face multiple enemies with your one ship.

It looks like a Pirates! inspired game with a couple of little gameplay quirks- like the solo-only ship battles. The price is apparently not going to be too bad, though. Its probably be worth a try.

Pirates II is now Q4 2004, yes? - highly questionable source, as I saw this posted on a gaming forum. You know what liars those kind of people are.

There is a flow to the sea fighting, the trick is get the wind, get in front of the other ships, and keep turning and firing, wearing them down.

You can disengage by leaving the sea map, and keep hitting the smae convoy, so you can wear em down.

I know, I don't have any control of that forum, it's free php.

They replaced a line in the coding that knocked out the index and replaced it with that silly hacked message. I'm told php can always be hacked that way.
