Vendetta Curse of raven's claw pc Pirate game!

Fifteen men on the dead man's chest—
...Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!
Drink and the devil had done for the rest—
...Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!

I remember Dave the Critic loves Pirate games. This game was mooted for Xbox1 and ps4. Then it sank to Davey Jones locker never to be seen again. So whilst looking for one game I found this was released on pc and I could get it along with 20 other games for £2.79. I mean for that price you can't lose? Well...

So first of all this looks like a game which was developed for the ps3 not the ps4. When it was originally released it was a broken buggy mess but now it has been fixed. The graphics are dark and not fantastic but it would have been a good game on ps3 but not a great one. Next up we have the voice acting which is great. The story does not feel forced. It is a tale of vengeance. Capt Raven's whole family were murdered and he finds out who did it. Ooo rrrr. If he can stop his crew from drinking too much rum he can solve the mystery and save the day.

It plays quite well. It is an RPG.

Early days but so far it looks quite good.

Wow the cut scenes are amazing. You would think you were playing a ps2 game. I had heard that they were atrocious. I just had a conversation where my characters face was blocked by a sheet. Why no idea? It worked better the second time.
I have fought the same battle 4 times. Every time I try and save the game something goes wrong. Oh, you want to load a game?
No on my fifth try I beat the two sailors yet again. My reward? The game has crashed. I really want to play it but it really is a buggy piece of trash.
That said I like pirate games so I thought you know I am going to give it another 10 tries to get this game to work. So I have been playing it in 10 minute slots saving it and hoping it does not crash. So I lowered the resolution to about 720p. It is running better. It still kicked me out three times in a row to get that change saved.
So we have pirates of the caribbean, a kiddie version disney gave us. This is an adult version. Some of the fun occurs in a ho house. I also inadvertently just paid for an in game woman. That was hilarious. When the game works it is a joy. You are laughing away. Thinking this is great. Then the bugs start happening again.
A lot of times you will be fighting enemies only for your own side to turn against you and start attacking you. Then you need to run away to reset it. The combat is atrocious. There is no block or none I have found so far. You have a heavy attack and a light attack. I think the light attack is meant to deflect blows. Other times you are fighting one character and have almost killed him only for the game to switch you to another character and they kill you, or the two of them kill you. That is when you have to run away.
I think it is going to be a great game but one that is great despite a litany of failures. A bit like watching Cutthroat Island and thinking why did Harlin not cast a male in the lead role. Or how can you make a pirates of the caribbean without Johnny Depp.
