I don't like the fact that there are no explicit missions or goals in this game other than to raise money. It becomes tedious pretty quickly. If you don't repay your loans right away, you're sunk.

This game is fantastic if you are just looking for a simple destring game. Than this is for you. Because all you do sail the seas looking for pirates to bombard cannons on.

this did need some missions, but since it was the first one, i can let it slide. I just like it because it is easy. buy low .sell high.
