    Sea of thieves is one of a kind, a very rare game that will be a sea of joy for some, and a strange and empty game, that lack some of the basics of modern games for others. For me it's a total success, a game that has filled the hours I've spend playing it with plenty of unforgettable moments.

    Rare have been clear about their goal of wanting players to create their own stories within Sea of Thieves, and it is safe to say they’ve succeeded. Let’s hope they can keep the ship on course.

    Sea of Thieves shines most brightly when playing with friends. The gameplay is both fun and accessible, and the technical aspects of the game are truly wonderful, but everything is weighed down by the lack of additional content and greater variety.

    Having fun in Sea of Thieves is a slow burn at the moment. Most of the game involves you just chilling on your ship while looking for other pirates to steal from, or for the raids to start. It’s not a game that you can play every single day for hours on end, and most people will certainly tire of it after seeing all of the PvE content available now. Even so, Sea of Thieves is incredible in the way you can interact with players and be whatever kind of pirate you want to be.

    Sea of Thieves is a game with great potential, but it's undermined by a lack of variety and depth. Meditative alone, fascinating and epic in multiplayer, the navigation experience provided by Rare is truly unique and brilliant. On the other hand, the extreme freedom given to the player cannot be fulfilled because of clumsy boots on the ground mechanics and a quest structure that is far too repetitive.
  6. 60
    Though it looks stunning and is an impressive achievement in open world multiplayer gaming, a lack of variety and completely frustrating single-player mode keeps Sea of Thieves from staying afloat.

    Perhaps the least forgivable aspect for me, given my love of exploration and discovery in games like these, is that all the islands feel the same. For Sea of Thieves to be a truly unforgettable experience for me I’d have liked to have seen islands and archipelagos that feel lovingly crafted with supreme attention to detail. What we have instead is a map that feels like Rare turned “Generate Game” on once and just ran with what the creator spat out. This, more than anything else, saddens me as it makes things feel even less devoid of life. Islands are too spread out, too samey and too uninteresting leaving the player with a, “seen one, seen them all” feeling.

    I don’t know what to say about this game. I feel like I am at a loss having to describe my feelings about this game. I have a hard timeI don’t know what to say about this game. I feel like I am at a loss having to describe my feelings about this game. I have a hard time calling this a game. There is nothing to do, I felt nothing playing this game.

    It was interesting at first trying to figure out how to sail my ship but after I figured it out. It was pretty easy to replicate it. To simplify this game, it’s a game that has fun firsts. The first time you do something its fun, the second time. It’s not even where its less fun, its just not fun.

    I’ll check back with this game in October/November and see if I like it but as of right now. This is above and beyond my biggest disappointment of the year. Which is good news, get the disappointment out early.

For what is worth and theOne of the best (if not the best) early access/beta game i have ever played. A full retail game!? HELL NO !!! For what is worth and the content it has is not worth the 60 dollars price tag. The game should cost 9.99 and still won`t be a complete game. Wait for a revision or until it has full content or feels like a complete game or until Microsoft or Rare give the game enough support or content to justify the 60 dollars price tag.
    At this state for me the game gets a 2 out of 10.

The game is not worth a cent, but the price tag is from her like in AAA projects. Do not buy or play this game, monotonous world, fun the first hour of the game. I would give it to -10 points if I had the opportunity, and so my traditional 0 points out of 10 .. Expand
