- Privateer's Bounty
Privateer's Bounty is a strategy game that offers something for anyone interested in commanding a fleet--except perhaps fans of role-playing a pirate. Since Age of Sail II is so appealing in multiplayer, it makes sense for fans of the game to buy the latest version, especially since it features improvements that make for a markedly better game. For everyone else, thanks to this update, you can now go to the store and buy an excellent strategy game about the age of fighting sail that generally works right out of the box.
