    1. Mini Review
    - - - - - - - -
    
    I have to say this is my eigth Xbox game, and it ranks as my
    third favorite, just under Munch's Oddysee and Halo. I definately
    reccomend it, as it incorporates an excellent sea-based combat
    system with a fun and adventuresome land exploration that follows a
    somewhat non-linear, and intriguing path. Pirates is an excellent
    game for fans of third-person adventure genres, and while it doesn't
    utilize the Xbox's graphical capabilities, it is definately a fun
    game, enjoy!

    3. Strategy
    - - - - - -
    
    SHIP STRATEGIES:
    
    When attacking other ships, it often confuses the AI to encircle
    them while attacking, most ships can be defeated easily this way if
    you have the latest ship upgrade. Make sure that you upgrade your
    ship when possible to be able to contend with the tougher enemies.
    
    When attacking garrisons, if possible try to take out towers without
    drawing attention from the big guns. Then when attacking garrisons
    make sure you have a powerful weapon that will fire all guns (not
    the lion or the ram) to do serious damage to the fort, And most
    importantly keep firing.
    
    An important survival strategy in ship combat, is to not be afraid
    to use your wood and sails stock. That's what they are there for,
    and they will keep you alive. If you find that you are unable to
    boost, it is because your sails are damaged and need to be repaired.
    
    LAND STRATEGIES:
    
    Kat spends most of her time on land. Many of the monsters on land
    require specific strategies to slay them. And many of them have the
    ability to either block, or can resist Kat's sword attack. In
    these instances, it is important to use your items effectively to
    defeat them.
    
    Because bosses require specific strategies it will be discussed in
    the walkthrough.
    
    When exploring the land try to open every chest even if you know you
    can't. This will record the chest's placement on your map, so that
    you can return here later to open it once you have the neccessary
    key.
    
    
    4. FAQ
    - - - -
    
    Why didn't you include the codes in your FAQ?
    
       Probably because I feel it's more fun and challenging to beat the
       game without codes
    
    Where do I find the 5 orchids/masks/stars?
    
       See the Easy Reference part of this guide for specific info for
       all of these questions.
    
    Why can't I walk up the hill in Winter Wolf Ridge/Frigid Plateau?
    
       You don't have the boots. The Walkthrough and Easy Reference
       explain how to get these, remember you have to fight Duncan
       before the quest is set into motion.
    
    The Lava Snakes keep killing me. Why?
    
       I haven't found a great way to kill these guys without using
       tiki's, so I reccomend running and jumping away from them.

    i. Pre-Walkthrough
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    While I don't reccomend simply reading through this guide, it would
    probably be more enjoyable to use it after beating the game once, so
    that you can try to get everything, or use it only when you are
    stuck.

    20.1 Frozen Beast
    
    This battle isn't fun if you don't have lots of fire Tiki's and the
    exploding fire flasks. After defrosting the Beast using either the
    flasks or a fire Tiki, he will attack you. Throw all your flasks at
    him, and then use your fire Tiki's. The rest should be a few swings,
    and this bad boy will go back to the ice from whence it came. Your
    reward for this is the Volcanic Isles Chart Stone.

    pretty easy. After Hawk goes down, you have to fight Hawk's demon.
    However, if you opened all of the treasure chests on your way here,
    you should have enough Tiki's to make short work of it.
    
    
    CONGRATULATIONS!!! You beat the game, sit back and enjoy the FMV's
