|Pirates is one of the best examples of the importance of gameplay over all other elements. You are a pirate, and other than that there are no restrictions. You choose who you attack, what nation you fight for, and what booty you keep. There are sword fights, naval battles, land conflicts, romance, politics, trade concerns, mutiny worries... everything that a real pirate could want.
This is a great game, but it was made even better by the ""Classic Pirates"" update for PC several years ago. The game was given better sound and considerably better graphics, and even though it isn't on NES I would still recommend it. For NES purists, however, the orignal Pirates! is the way to go.

|I think this game is really good. There are different elements of the game and its easy to pick up. On the same token there is a lot of depth to the game. The difficulties are very different and you can change them in the middle of the game. Its a good download. It gets my thumbs up.|
