While most of the game was rather bland, Tempest’s potential showed in some of the stranger quests that popped up (ghosts!), the large scale naval battles, and surprise sea monster attacks. Unfortunately, these events are short distractions from the lackluster nature of the rest of the game. Tempest does have something to offer for fans of naval games, but as for me, I’ll be dropping my anchor here.
Tempest is just an ever repeating cycle of quest after quest, where even the quests themselves are repetitive. The combat isn’t satisfying, nor does it have enough depth to keep things entertaining for longer than a few hours. And yet, that’s all the game offers: infinite quests so you can keep on sailing and fighting forever. You won’t want to though. It’s unfortunate that there are very few pirate games; Tempest could have satiated a niche in the market, but it misses the mark in too many ways to be at all seaworthy.
Unfortunately, Tempest is a tough game to recommend right now. I’m a man, so I share that boyish obsession with pirates most of us have, and also love history and ships alongside a crazy interest in mythological creatures -- even though I was bored by the end of the tutorial, the surprise appearance of a Kraken renewed my interest in the title.
