Game Description and Comments
Tales of Pirates is a free 3D MMORPG with anime-style graphics from the same company as Voyage Century and Myth War. This game is yet another addition to the increasingly crowded pirate MMO genre. ToP joins other pirate games such as the aforementioned Voyage Century Puzzle Pirates Pirate King Online World of Pirates and the upcoming Pirates of the Burning Sea. Of those games Tales of Pirates is most similar to Pirate King Online due to the style of graphics and focus on fantasy over realism. As can be seen by the reviews below Tales of Pirates also reminds gamers of Ragnarock Online. That said ToP does not innovate the genre but does provide another way for gamers to experience life as a fantasy pirate. Although the game has some fun features like being able to build and sail various types of ships the standout feature of the game is all the activities and contests that are held such as the Flag Design Contest the Double Experience Leveling Competition and the Hexathlon.

Comment: So far so good. Take a little of pirates a little of WoW quests and a whole bag of Ragnarok Online and you’ve got Tales of Pirates. Not too laggy or buggy and generally pleasant to play. The downsides are that the community is non-existent and the game has a slightly unfriendly navigation system. This could be a good replacement for those of us who loved Ragnarok but got fed up with buying potions and begging for health regens. Oh and you can sail ships too. One to watch.
Comment: Quite fun game for people with lower-end PCs due to a small download and low system requirements. Decent combat system and plays a lot like Ragnarok but with full 3D graphics instead of sprite-based 2D characters. This is the game to try if you like anime-style MMOs and want a game you hop on and play for a few minutes or a few hours. Only thing is that I’ve always been a slave to graphics so ToP leaves something to be desired for me.
Comment: This game isn’t half bad. However it does look like it copied a few other MMOs. It is a kinda quick download. This is a pretty good MMO compared to others.
Tales of Pirates is free to play but there is an item mall available.
