Pirates: Tides of Fortune Review

The gaming industry offers a wide variety of MMO online games. There are some who are free and only require registration and others that require some monetary resources in order to move up the game, but it is difficult to know, which are the best and which browsers offer the greatest range.

One browser game that it is worth reviewing is Plarium online strategy games. These games are very engaging and can be played at different skill levels.

Plarium catalogue displays a variety of strategy games such as: Total Domination, Stormfall: Age of War, Soldiers Inc., Sparta: War of Empires, Pirates: Tides of Fortune and the latest, Nords: Heroes of the North.

Each game is set in a different virtual reality with a different storyline and characteristics. For example Pirates: Tides of Fortune, combines fantasy and adventures.

Pirates: Tides of Fortune is a free-to-play strategy game, the game puts you in control of your private pirate island as you search for resources and supremacy on the open seas. The game graphics are visually appealing. It does a great job in creating that “pirate feel” thanks to the graphics and design of the game, which includes voice acting during the game. The Captain invites you to become a pirate yourself, this is how the game starts, and once you begin the game you find yourself on a little island set in the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea where you learn about the life of a pirate. It gives you the feeling that you are on the sets of Pirates of the Caribbean and that at any moment Jack Sparrow might appear.

The game has a good balance of strategy, construction and technology research, it gives proper advice on how to manage your resources as well. The Captain continues to give to the gamer a guided tour of the game’s interface which is very user friendly. It is very easy to get a feel for the game and to start playing.

One of the first resources to build is the rum distillery, the construction of the distillery is essential to the game since it allows the users to get more resources. This game is basically a resource strategy game and the game literally cannot move forward without these three basic resources: Gold, Lumbar and RUM!

Another important aspect of the game is technology. The tech tree is rather expansive and there are a variety of technologies to choose from and each technology unlocks abilities, buildings and units that you will need in order to move up to higher levels. The UI is very intuitive and easy to navigate. A nice feature is that you can play it on Facebook or directly through Plarium’s browser.

The graphics of the game are very well designed it has its own particular aesthetic appeal. The voice acting and background audio add to the ambiance and create an environment that really draws you in. The BGM also gives you the feel of pirate music that you often hear in movies and in television, but if you do not like it you can also turn it off.

This game was definitely designed with fun in mind especially for anyone who likes adventures and freedom to live a pirate’s life, you are able to conquer ships, to raid nearby islands and profit from them if their defenses are not well kept.

Overall, the game is fun, entertaining and easy to get into it is definitely worth your time.
