Product Details:

Young Pirate Fans... Embark on a Fun Filled Adventure!! Young pirate fans embark on a thrilling trip with One-Eye which takes you up and down the Caribbean, to discover countless islands and live through exciting adventures. The aim of the game is to find all 9 pieces of Blackbeard's map scattered across the entire Caribbean, to raise the pirate treasure and to set free the lovely mermaid being held hostage by the soldiers. TRADE GOODS: 16 beautiful but perilous Caribbean islands are waiting to be discovered. Each island is different, yet on all of them you can trade goods with Dimitri the Tradesman and so increase your supply of gold. PIMP YOUR PIRATE BOAT: On some islands, Herman the Shipwright operates a boatyard. Depending on how much gold they have, pirates can buy any kind of ship their hearts desire. Ships can be bought, repaired or upgraded here. The better the ship, the greater your chances of winning the sea battles against hostile soldiers. EXPLORE ISLANDS: On all 16 islands you can go on a tour of the island (jump & run level), increase your supply of gold and tackle some unexpected surprises while you are at it. FIGHT SEA BATTLES and sea monsters: Before our hero Captain One-Eye is finally able to raise the treasure and rescue the mermaid, he first has to successfully complete 70 tricky missions. The galleys of enemy soldiers have to be sunk, sea monsters must be vanquished and shipwrecked pirates drifting helplessly on the sea need to be rescued!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good story with difficult puzzles... This was my first time playing Broken Sword on the DS. The story is good enough for a game like this. You play as both Nico Haris(forgot last name but I think I'm right) who is a reporter, and George Stobbart. They both go searching for clues and asking for information regarding the Templars. The gameplay is mainly walking around solving puzzles, and using the hint button thingy to figure out what to do. Amazingly enough the creator says "not to use to many hints" hmmm...TOO BAD I HAD TO USE 100+ HINTS!!!!! *Ahem* Anyways the gameplay was good for a game like this. The graphics were better than I thought they were going to be, but to some people it does look a little dated (I think maybe this was on the SNES or Genesis/Saturn?). Overall this game is okay for people craving a mystery puzzle solver, but I wouldn't reccomend it unless you wanna play it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It just wasn't as much of a challenge.... The game was enjoyable. It was the first game I bought. I just got into this DSi thing and it seems to be a lot of fun. I thought the game might have been a lot more challenging, and maybe it might have taken longer. The puzzles were good, I would have liked their to have been more. I guess, I was just expecting it to be a little harder. I completed the game a lot sooner than I expected. I really wish I had bought it used. The graphics are great, the story was good, the puzzles were good also..... don't get me wrong, it's a great game, I just think I was expecting it to be a lot harder. Learning the history, and stories of the Knights Templar was an extra! I enjoyed how the gaming and history blended ... With a few more puzzles and a little longer I would have enjoyed it more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game! I just played this on my DSi and I absolutely loved it! I love games without much fighting but tons of puzzles and this was it. Traveling to all of the different countries and learning so much history about the KNIGHTS TEMPLAR was really fun! Don't be fooled though....this is NOT a love story. I do wish that the two characters would have played together more. And I wish the game was longer. I am not a big gamer and I finished it in about 10 hours. The graphics were really good. I had no problem using the stylus at all. And I like that if you get stuck you get hints. Those were just helpful enough to point me in the right direction. I wouldn't recommend this game for young kids as there are quite a few dead bodies that you have to examine and a few adult innuendos. But overall a great game. I will probly play it again!
