So … I’ve rewritten this entire thing after long bit of thought, and honestly, I have so many mixed feelings about this game. I love it and I hate it in every possible and confusing way. I love the game’s ship mechanics, but I hate the game’s long and dull progression. I love the game’s graphics, but I hate the game’s server problems and game breaking glitches. I love playing this game with friends, but I hate it when we don’t rewarded for the voyages we complete. I don’t think I’ve ever been so conflicted with a video game in my life. This is crazy.
When I first played this game, I didn’t really enjoy it. I personally found it to be rather boring with little to no reason to grind for loot. I was so eager to hate this game and give all my anger … but a few of my friends gave me a second opinion and kind of woke me up to the reality of the situation. The real thing that makes this game truly shine through all of it’s problems. It is a fantastic game to play with your friends online. That is an opportunity you can’t miss out on.
So it has it’s faults and bugs, but its the journey you make with your friends that makes the experience enjoyable. Sure the tasks are all the same, but the outcomes and challenges you face will all be different in many ways. I’ll admit it, I was a little too quick to judge on this one. As I have been with many games in the past. I’ve allowed my passion for gaming to stand in the way of reason at times. I feel like I can sometimes be too critical on games that … well … don’t really deserve it.
Did Destiny 2 and Battlefront II deserve my hate? Yes, I believe so. However, for some reason, Sea of Thieves is a bit different. While it may seem bland and boring on it’s own, all you need is a group of your buddies to make it worth your while. With that said, I recommend you get this game. You and your pals. Trust me, you’ll have one hell of a time. I guarantee it.
