“There’s a fine line between campy and crappy. The way Pirates of Black Cove’s lighthearted “Yaaaarrr”-heavy humor waffles back and forth from amusing to cringe-worthy is forgivable, but a strong personality doesn’t save this sinking ship of a game from its numerous shortcomings. Sluggish high seas adventure and dull, simplistic gameplay detract from an otherwise charming presentation that struggles to stay afloat under its own awkward girth. Simply put: plundering loot across the beautifully shimmering waters of Black Cove should be a lot more fun than it is.”
