    Yes this game is actually Sea Dogs 2. It has nothing at all to do with the movie. The only reason it had a title change was a marketing ploy to sell more copies.

    The game has been modified a bit since it was Sea Dogs 2. It does involve some of the content from the movie, at least in a few of the quests. They've also changed some of the names and removed the option to play as a female (which looked at lot better then the current protaganist).

    Pirates should shape up to be better then the average movie game, but hopefully they haven't changed a lot of the Sea Dogs 2 game around. The publisher is very sketchy on this.

    First I have heard about any changes to the actual game. It makes sense and all. But like Scott said the publisher has been pretty hush hush on the whole issue.

    And that can only be for the best, considering how terrible most games are that are designed from the ground up to tie into a movie license...

    what do you mean the publisher has been iffy on this...

    just curious

    from everything i have read what has been said is whats out there- that it was Sea Dogs 2 and then at the very end of production Disney came in and bought the rights- giving it a new name and a bit of a make-over. Regardless...I think it will be a great game and definately do well.

    I like that fact of the female character too!!

    Here's a pretty good preview:
    http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=11179

    The campaign was modified a bit, and undead enemies were added in some spots to better fit the movie. Otherwise, its Sea Dogs II.

    I'm looking forward to this, probably pick it up next week. Sea Dogs was fun, and this looks to be a better version, even with undead Pirates ;-). Bummer the red head captain didn't make it though.

    Thanks for that preview...I feel like I have a pretty good understanding of what was changed...and it wasn't really even that much..adding those few undead pirates...have Kiera Knightly do the narration, changing some of the graphics to match the movie...but to me thats pretty clear.

    I too am going to buy it as soon as it comes out.
