A pair of reviews surfaced today. The first comes by way of Trusted Reviews that scored Pirates of the Burning Sea with an overall 8/10 score. They summed it up by saying:
That said, this is the best time I've had in an MMO since I first played LoTRO last year, and I think it's bursting with long-term potential. So for now, I'll steal a line from Xavier Atencio and the classic theme park ride come movie come cultural phenomenon; "yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate's life for me."
The freshest, most enjoyable MMO experience since LoTRO and WoW. Step onboard, me hearties, and grab a piece of the pirate life.
The second review comes from Hooked Gamers. They similarly gave Pirates of the Burning Sea an 8/10 score and had this to say:
With all that said, Pirates of the Burning Seas is a welcome change of pace to the MMO world. This title will attract many players with diverse interests ranging from hardcore Player vs. Player, to character grinding, to playing with a live economy. There is a little something for every kind of player waiting in this swashbuckling version of 1720. With a little time and polish, the handful of minor bugs can be worked out and the full potential of this title may finally be realized.
