Pirates of the Caribbean is a 2003 computer game for Windows and Xbox, developed by Akella and published by Bethesda Softworks. The Xbox version was the first U.S. console game developed in Russia. A PlayStation 2 version was also originally in development, but was later canceled.

An unrelated game by the same name was also released for mobile phones, as was a Game Boy Advance game.

PC/Xbox Version

Pirates of the Caribbean is an action role-playing game in which the player, as Captain Nathaniel Hawk, goes on a series of quests for any one of the countries that control the islands of the Caribbean in the 17th Century. The player can buy new ships, recruit a crew and hire officers who will follow Hawk on his quest and help him in battle. The game features gameplay that takes place both on land and at sea, and allows the player to upgrade their character by earning skill points and gain new abilities.

The game was originally developed under the name Sea Dogs II, and was to be the sequel to Sea Dogs, which was released in the year 2000. Apart from the pirate theme, the setting and the presence of the Black Pearl, the game otherwise has few connections to the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl film, which was released around the same time as the game.

The PC version of this game is one of the first video games with multi-threaded code that is optimized for the Intel's Hyper-Threading technology.

Actress Keira Knightley, who played Elizabeth Swann in the film series, voiced the narrator (a single cutscene at the beginning) in the game.

Plot

After a fierce storm, Captain Nathaniel Hawk arrives on the island of Oxbay. His first mate Malcolm Hatcher is retiring, and so Hawk must hire a new first mate and crew. As he leaves Oxbay, a French armada attacks the colony and captures it. Hawk manages to slip away and warn the English governor on Redmond Island, Robert Christopher Silehard, that Oxbay was attacked.

The governor sends Hawk on a series of quests to aid him in the war against France: Nathaniel is sent to investigate the condition in Oxbay; prevent a supply ship from reaching Oxbay; unload English troops in the jungles of Oxbay and rescue the English spy from the clutches of the French.

While preparing for his next quest - annexing Oxbay, Nathaniel meets his old friends: Danielle Greene and Ralph Fawn. However, Ralph is killed when the soldiers arrive to arrest Danielle and Nathaniel himself is captured and imprisoned. While in prison he gets to know an old ex-cannoneer Edgar Attwood who was fired for drinking too much rum. He can be later hired by the player into his crew.

Some time later governor Silehard arrives and tells Nathaniel that a big mistake has occurred. He sends Nathaniel Hawk on another series of quests until Nathaniel meets an old inventor who aids him in finding a treasure that could defeat the ghost ship called the Black Pearl.

There is also a large number of side quests. For instance, in one such side mission Hawk is enlisted to help a Dutch colonist find several kidnapped children.

The Black Pearl

The Black Pearl is in this game but it is unknown if Barbossa is the captain (although when one looks at the code for the game, Barbossa is set as the ship's default captain). It cannot be destroyed. At night you see the Black Pearl's crew as skeletons. It can only be seen during the middle of the game and the end of the game—however, some people have reported seeing it at random points in the game.

The ship can be found randomly around the world, normally mostly near towns. There will also be warnings in town if the Black Pearl is sighted nearby.

Reception

The PC version has gained an average score of 66.7%, and the Xbox version 68%.

POTC Build Modification

The PC version of this game was later modified by the PiratesAhoy http://www.piratesahoy.net community. This project eventually became the unified POTC Build Mod. The Build Mod heavily patches and updates the game, and as of August 2009 is in its 14th Version. Visit http://www.potc.moddb.com or http://wiki.piratesahoy.net for further information.

Game Boy Advance version

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is a 2003 video game for Game Boy Advance.

Plot

The game doesn't share storyline with the Bethesda game for Windows and Xbox, instead it tells the story of a younger Jack Sparrow and how he escaped from the island after being betrayed by his crew.

Reception

The reception for this game was largely mediocre. IGN gave the game a 5.5 claiming: "Though the game looks and sounds like a quality game design, the focus on graphics and sound just can't help along the fact that Pirates of the Caribbean on the Game Boy Advance just isn't that much fun to play."

The average review score for the game is 64% on metacritic.

Mobile phone version

The mobile phone version was developed by Flying Tiger Development and published through Walt Disney Internet Group on July 25, 2003, in the United States.
