Captain Blood is like God of War but with pirates

Really, the title of this post is the best way to describe Captain Blood. Not to say the game is anywhere near as good as the God of War series, but the mechanics are along the same lines.

You'll be playing as a pirate who uses swords, guns and brutal finishing moves to take on the Spanish Main during the 17th century. New abilities and weapons are unlocked with the more gold you get and the only way to get more gold is by blindly killing everything in your way.

I played through the first ten-minutes of Captain Blood and the game is fun to say the least. I like the visual presentation and the pirate setting is refreshing. Enemy AI was lacking, but that may just be because the enemies are always stupid easy on the first level.

Captain Blood will be out later this year on the PC and Xbox 360.
