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 is a daring attempt by Rare but also a lacking one on so many fronts. While the graphics are fantastic and the game has a unique charm, ultimately the world feels empty, devoid of content and features. Sailing with friends can be an exhilarating experience at first, but when there's not much to do the fun dies down pretty quickly.
Trudging through that progression molasses is not usually painful, though, as the thrill of taking down a player ship or finding a truly good haul (made possible in part by all the boring bits) and the inherent pleasantness of sailing with a crew of people you like fills most sessions with anticipation, satisfaction, and camaraderie. It's like a team-building exercise that's actually fun.
