    Sea of Thieves? More like No Man's Sea ammirite?

    Dunno if any of you guys have been following this game's release, but since it was a Rare game I was somewhat interested in what it would turn out to be. I see a lot of people saying there isn't much to do and that the game is really repetitive. Any of you guys have it or have any impressions of it? Here's an article if any of you guys haven't heard anything and wanna get caught up. Supposedly there's supposed to be regular updates and added content, I'm seeing a lot of skepticism for that, but I don't actually see any reasons why.

    I read some reviews and got varying opinions. But yes, seems like a No Man's Sky situation where people could get bored very fast.

    I don't have any problems with it if they have planned to add more to the game.

    Nah, it doesn't feel like Wind Waker except for the ocean lol
    But if they remade Wind Waker with this good water, that would be amazing!
    The water pretty much looks better than in real life.

    If it was a free early access I wouldn't have a problem with it.

    Yeah but I feel like it'd be a far more fare statement than calling it No man's Sky Sea, considering they purposely over promised us things that wasn't even true and they continuously kept decieving fans of the game.

    I will admit that Sea of thieves looks like a very bare-bones experience and that it'll get boring fast, but at least this one has multiplayer *shots fired*

    Black Flag is amazing but I wish the assassins creed aspects were removed. Skull and Bones looks cool but even that is only naval combat it seems.

    Me too. Also a game with really good dragon flying mechanics. Just watched How to Train Your Dragon yesterday and now I want Rogue Squadron N64 but with flying dragons.

    Put this picture here just to add extra credibility to anything I say.
    Been here since Feb. 2013 on another account. Haven't been active since recently.

    I'm not surprised. Sea of Thieves has looked light on content to me since gameplay was shown. It did do well on Twitch and YouTube during its beta, but maybe that has more to do with it being a fun game to watch rather than a fun game to play.

    Does no one actually press all the buttons and try to interact with everything/figure out the rules in games any more? The author admits that they eventually figured it out themselves, but I guess they'd have preferred a long/detailed tutorial that tells them everything?

    Okay. Don't worry if you can't follow the simple instructions, you'll still be able to review games for VentureBeat.

    Best pirtate game I've played. If you've a mind to you can just ignore the Assassin stuff and just be a pirate! I spent hours plundering the sea and mullering Legendary Ships.

    Most recently I've decided to get the Crash Bandicoot trilogy that was just announced for Switch.

    I can't exactly say I'm not surprised that Sea of Thieves is being met with lukewarm (at best) reviews and derided as shallow. The very first trailer they showed had me hoping Rareware might be back. That was E3 2016 if memory serves. E3 2017 made it plunge off my radar. The gameplay they showed was uninteresting and just looked terrible.

    The graphics were subpar, and the animations were stiff and... I don't know if I can adequately describe how awful they looked. It just looked really, really bad - like every other post-Microsoft Rareware title.

    It really and truly saddens me that nobody at Microsoft can figure out how to invest in Rareware or their catalog of games. It says a lot that the best they've done is emulate most of Rareware's back catalog into a retro collection for Xbox One.




    Seriously Microsoft. If you don't want the treasure trove you're sitting on, sell it to somebody who cares.

    I don't care what the rest of the game looks. The water is the best water in any video game ever made.

    Some things I wish this game should have is more ships on the sea at once, a bigger sea, randomly generated islands, some islands that are huge, up to 8 players on a crew etc.

    If they add to it (they certainly didn't have much time with only 5 years, did they?) then I totally see the potential most reviews talk of. Seems pretty popular with the XBox bunch though - "starved for games" etc.

    At least back then, it was understandable with power limitations. However, the animations are actually worse than the good ol’ days at Rareware. Even Banjo Kazooie on the N64 has smoother animations.

    This game got boring really fast.
    It was such a cool concept, but it really needs more stuff to do. It needs pets, we need to have a potion that can turn us into a shark so we can explore the ocean, it needs mini games, randomly generated islands, some really huge islands with story lines that can take hours to complete and some more stuff. Having a house would also be cool.

    It can be fun if you are 3-4 players, but really boring if you play alone.

    I'm sorry to hear the negative views on this game. I was hoping Rare would be back, but I guess not.
