Age of Booty Demo

Mon­day 25 May 2009 23:08

Seems like a light-weight Real Time Strat­e­gy game, and I don't like light-weight Real Time Strat­e­gy games. Real Time Strat­e­gy games should come with a 1000+ page man­u­al you have to study to find out what the pos­si­bil­i­ties are so you can come up with a sur­pris­ing win­ning strat­e­gy every time you play. Age of Booty is to close to the tac­ti­cal side be­cause there aren't many strate­gic de­ci­sions to make. And us­ing the SIXAXIS I made to many tac­ti­cal er­rors by mov­ing my ship to the wrong tile and lose valu­able time cor­rect­ing those mis­takes. And since you can't do much else than sail around the map, why not just di­rect­ly steer it? Now you can set a tar­get, but you have no con­trol over what tac­tics to use when some­thing is en­coun­tered try­ing to get there. And for games like this I like a mouse to point and click and max­i­mum in­for­ma­tion den­si­ty on my screen, con­soles are best for shoot­ers and rac­ing, not for RTS.
