Mini Review - - - - - - - - I have to say this is my eigth Xbox game, and it ranks as my third favorite, just under Munch's Oddysee and Halo. I definately reccomend it, as it incorporates an excellent sea-based combat system with a fun and adventuresome land exploration that follows a somewhat non-linear, and intriguing path. Pirates is an excellent game for fans of third-person adventure genres, and while it doesn't utilize the Xbox's graphical capabilities, it is definately a fun game, enjoy! 2.

Strategy - - - - - - SHIP STRATEGIES: When attacking other ships, it often confuses the AI to encircle them while attacking, most ships can be defeated easily this way if you have the latest ship upgrade. Make sure that you upgrade your ship when possible to be able to contend with the tougher enemies. When attacking garrisons, if possible try to take out towers without drawing attention from the big guns. Then when attacking garrisons make sure you have a powerful weapon that will fire all guns (not the lion or the ram) to do serious damage to the fort, And most importantly keep firing. An important survival strategy in ship combat, is to not be afraid to use your wood and sails stock. That's what they are there for, and they will keep you alive. If you find that you are unable to boost, it is because your sails are damaged and need to be repaired. LAND STRATEGIES: Kat spends most of her time on land. Many of the monsters on land require specific strategies to slay them. And many of them have the ability to either block, or can resist Kat's sword attack. In these instances, it is important to use your items effectively to defeat them. Because bosses require specific strategies it will be discussed in the walkthrough. When exploring the land try to open every chest even if you know you can't. This will record the chest's placement on your map, so that you can return here later to open it once you have the neccessary key. 4. FAQ - - - - Why didn't you include the codes in your FAQ? Probably because I feel it's more fun and challenging to beat the game without codes Where do I find the 5 orchids/masks/stars? See the Easy Reference part of this guide for specific info for all of these questions. Why can't I walk up the hill in Winter Wolf Ridge/Frigid Plateau? You don't have the boots. The Walkthrough and Easy Reference explain how to get these, remember you have to fight Duncan before the quest is set into motion. The Lava Snakes keep killing me. Why? I haven't found a great way to kill these guys without using tiki's, so I reccomend running and jumping away from them. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | | | PART II: WALKTHROUGH | |_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | i.
