Each island is different, yet on all of them you can trade goods with Dimitri the Tradesman and so increase your supply of gold.

I'm a 38 year old male gamer with an 8 year old son who still enjoys his Playmobil toys. Playmobil toys have always had a soft spot in my heart because my son grew up on them, and as a parent I love them because they're sturdy, adorable, and delightfully simple while offering interesting themes and endless variety...they're a lifelong classic toy like Legos.

Anyway, out of my admiration and nostalgia for Playmobil toys, and the fact that this game was only $20, I figured I'd give it a shot. Although I have a DS like my son does, I haven't found many games I enjoy playing on it, because I just don't get the point of playing a game on a 3-inch screen...I have trouble immersing myself in something so tiny. But there are a special few games that I've found engaging on the DS...Lego Batman is one, and this Playmobil Pirates is another. The graphics are great (especially the cut-scenes), the dialogue is funny, the gameplay is entertaining and challenging without being frustrating (except for a few cases), and the minigames are fun and a neat addition.

The game is well done, melding game elements from proven performers. For example, I recognized a lot of the successful elements from the Grand Theft Auto series, where (in this case) you must earn enough dough to buy, repair and upgrade your pirate ship, and a decently long story-driven mission structure that also allows you to spend hours in diversionary activities like earning money by trading goods across the islands, sinking ships for their loot or fighting sea monsters for cash, and playing the minigames on the islands whenever you're ashore.

My son got a DS Lite for Christmas from Santa and this was the first game he bought (he received a few others from us for Christmas). We worked together as a team on the game. The game is rated for 10+, but my son is 7 and did fine with most of the missions, but needed a little help sailing to the final mission of rescuing the mermaid (lots of rocks and ships to battle). He completed the final mission and rescued the mermaid on his own and was declared a "pirate hero". This is the first game that he has completed and it was a great experience for him. The actions are intuitive, but there is a lot of reading necessary in order to know what the next mission is. The graphics are great and the need to figure out a strategy for some of the missions is challenging. The game includes your average pirate activities and has alcohol references, gambling and trading to earn money, and many land and sea battles, but it is all done in good humor and is in context with the game. As a parent, I was excited to see the game stimulate my son's imagination as he would play pirates when outside and recreate some of the situations that where in the video game. Next up for us: Playmobil Knights!

I purchased this game for my oldest son who is 5 yrs old but actually enjoyed it a lot myself and was quite addicted until I completed the game. My son is rather new at the DS system and was able to navigate each task easily since it guides you with an "X" for the next island to go to. He does have some difficulty sinking other ships but part of it may be my fault since I didn't want him to sink "MY SHIP" and have to start from scratch with a mere raft. I don't think he will ever finish this game as it does take time to get enough money, but he certainly doesn't care, as it has given him a great amount of subject to play with his toys and even outside (I send him all over the yard to complete each pirate task and either Dad or the dog is the sea monster). Overall I think it is appropriate for most ages, although I read from another reviewer about some references to bad language, I myself was impatient and skipped all the dialogue to get to the next task.
