Land Ahoy! Pirates: Duel Of The High Sea Review.

The Navy has heard about a key that holds a deadly curse, so it must be retrieved at all costs and taken back to their fortress for safekeeping. They send you (Captain Smallberries) to retrieve the key, which was last known to be in Porto Bello, but fears entering Spanish waters under a Navy flag will cause a war between the Navy and Spanish fleets.

The first instance sees you having to escape the Navy in Port Royal. This games is full of action and fun and also does not lack in the speed that each boat game needs to make it fun and enjoyable with the added choice of three types of ship to choose from, Each one repesents a diffrent difficulty setting which adds the extra edge to making the choice. And a good choice is essential due to the pesky Navy making them selves not welcome near enough all the time.

The main menu is really nicely done and is themed to the actual feel of the game unlike some others that are out these days. Its aimed at kids so the menu is really easy to get around and to use.

The game takes the DS back to how it should be and use it for more full on gaming instead of boring games that just feature on the touch screen side of things.

With 70 Levels over seven seas this game ain’t gonna be a one hour job like most D.s titles, You have to fight good fights to get them fabled Keys, Gold and most important to your battle are the weapons which offer some devastating power. And some great sound effects during battles or just cruising the high seas.

Also being able to pick up castaways and having the option of letting them work for you is a real nice touch as well due to it making your ship better for example your lookout or you weapons master and your navigator.

The touch panel of the D.s is used well in this game and not over killed like some of the other companies have done in the past and continue to do. The controls are well done and the touch screen featuring some useful little pieces for you to touch when you need them through out the game.

Also a Multi player feature is available to use in this game, which you can use the single card download play option which saves money for people wanting to play this game who live in the same family or just between friends. Between two or four people can play on one card or two.

You can have the choice of 35 multiplayer arenas to chose from which are spanned over seven themed sea environments. And after every battle showing you a full run down on how well you or your opponent have done against one and another.

To round this game up the words frantic and enjoyable to all ages not just the kids that its aimed at with its age rating and that usually DS games are for the younger age range.

So, its well worth getting even if your old but had pirate fantasy’s when you was a little kid you can live out the dream in a vivid kind of way by getting this game and blowing up some scurvy sea dogs.
