Is It Any Good?

BUCCANEER BLITZ is not a terribly deep or profound game. Its gameplay design is rather basic in scope, and even when fleshed out to its fullest extent it only goes so far. This makes it more accessible to players as it does not rely on extremely difficult, mind-bending levels to weed out the less skillful. All it takes is a good sense of resource management -- the ability to add troops to islands as needed, but making sure other islands don't become too isolated -- to conquer the opposing side. And while the entire game is about violence and battling to conquer the enemy islands, the depiction of violent content is minimal and secondary. It's really more about the strategy and figuring out how to map out the best course of attack -- more of a strategic board game than a violent video game. As such, it's a good, reliable game that gets players thinking, without causing too much frustration.
