1. 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!

3. 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.

27.1 The Grand Finale Sea Battle

If you have completed Neptune's Quest this will be MUCH easier.
Attack Hawk's ship with everything you have, and don't forget to
use your wood and sails if neccessary. After Hawk is sunk, sail to
the dock and SAVE YOUR GAME! (Especially if you are on hard
difficulty).

27.2 The Grand Finale !

If you have completed the Mermaid's quest this battle is a joke
given all you've been through. Defeating Hawk is similar to fighting
a suped-up Blackbeard. Just keep swinging and he should go down
pretty easy. After Hawk goes down, you have to fight Hawk's demon.
However, if you opened all of the treasure chests on your way here,
you should have enough Tiki's to make short work of it.


CONGRATULATIONS!!! You beat the game, sit back and enjoy the FMV's
