Whether or not I was having fun with Sea of Thieves boiled down to the people I was playing with. Though Sea of Thieves has an excellent foundation for something truly great down the road, it has some glaring issues with variety, progression, and rewards that need tweaking. As it stands at launch, it's genuinely good fun with friends, but progressing to Pirate Legend is a long grind. Sea of Thieves needs a lot more briny depth before it's the amazing voyage we'd hoped for, but so far the great cooperative moments are a good start.

A limited and simplistic pirate adventure, but one with an abundance of character and a thrilling conviction in its own ideas.

A superb water park for four friends to splash around in, but progression is sluggish and there are too few surprises beneath the waves.

A uniquely open-ended online adventure with some of the best co-op of any game, but at the moment there's not nearly enough content or variety to keep it interesting for long.

Sea of Thieves is bursting with potential for storytelling in a watery paradise, but doesn't have enough to keep players coming back.

Sea of Thieves can be tedious, and it lacks a compelling progression hook, but it excels as a cooperative story generator for you and your friends

Sea of Thieves' promising foundation is muddied by shallow quests and the pervasive cynicism of other players.

Sailing across the open ocean becomes less of a thrilling embodiment of cooperation and more of a chore.

Even in its current seemingly incomplete state, Sea of Thieves is still rewarding.

After a year or two, I think Sea of Thieves might be a complete winner. Right now, it's uneven.

As it stands, it's difficult to recommend in its current state, regardless of how lovely its water looks.

The foundation is great. The fundamentals are there. It doesn't take much imagination to see how this game could blossom into something magnificent. But so long as it's missing long-term depth and incentives to stick around past the first few weeks, Sea of Thieves will feel like a missed opportunity.

Sea of Thieves defies modern gaming conventions in brilliant and refreshing fashion, creating a fairly unique sandbox where you and your crew need to find your own fun. It might be in real need of more variety to the quests and activities, but Sea of Thieves' curious charms are like a siren's song that keep drawing me back for more piratical adventures on the high seas.

Sea of Thieves has fresh and great ideas that work good. However, due to very repetitive missons, lack of content and bad endgame, this game turns into a tedious one after a few hours.

Sea of Thieves shines the most when playing with friends. The gameplay is both fun and accessible, and the technical aspects of the game are truly wonderful, but everything is weighed down by the lack of more contents and of greater variety

Sea of Thieves is a fascinating experience that is undermined by the lack of variety and player progression. A game that shines if played along with your buddies, but fails to engage the user if played without a group of friends.

A good effort but a shallow offer on its genre. Its success depends on the postlaunch support provided by Rare, because there's a certain degree of lack of contents on the actual game.

I am sitting cross-legged in a watchtower, praying the crew searching for me doesn't realise I'm here.

A game brimming with potential. Incredible attention to detail and the potential to create your own stories is tempered somewhat by a lack of guided content to keep players motivated.
