Great Potential

This game is excellent I'll admit but has a few flaws such as- When in action, say the level where you are on the cannon blowing up the Spaniard Galleons, your partner says the same thing over and over, he probably repeated every line 4 times, another minor flaw is in parts where people are talking (in between playing scenes) there is about a second wait after every line said which is kind of annoying.

This games graphics are spectacular, I'd say they compare to a PS2's graphics. However, this plus cant be grasped enough, I mean, this game needs more then just story mode. Every other gameloft game either has story & free roam (Gangstar) or story & online multiplayer or even JUST multiplayer but still those games could go on forever. What I'm saying is either this game needs free roam which probably woudlnt work for this type of game but it might, or it needs online multiplayer which would put this game over the top. Multilayer could include different characters with different attributes on a variety of maps.

This game deserves a five star IF there was more to the game other then campaign, because what are the people who paid good money for this game supposed to do when the campaign is complete.

Love the game, but needs more.

Minus 1 star for each problem

So, the game concept is cool, the mini games are ok, the story works, but...
1) its R. E. P. E. T. I. T. I. V. E.
2) the frame rates are brutal
3) at 75% complete, I am now stuck in a death loop (?) where every time it loads, I Instantly die

The last time I contacted game loft for technical support after the nova2 update caused that game to cease functioning, they told me to delete iTunes and reset my iPad.

I won't restart the game from the beginning (see point #1) so I guess I'm done playing it.

Ps, I won't be calling those jokers, or buying Gameloft products again

Great pirate themed game

It's a great game! I'm interested in pirates so I tried this game. It's great. Good controls and amazing graphics. If you have 7$ and some time to kill, go buy this.
