Only thing is, there is precious little information out there. GameRankings lists a single preview...from August 2005. When I mentioned this game on IRC my friend Marv tracked down the game's home page (which even Sony doesn't link to from their official listing). On the official Black Buccaneer site you'll find a trailer.
The first thing you'll notice is that the game's logo resembles the evil demon from the classic troll-management game, Dungeon Keeper, albeit with a gold top hat. Then you'll see in the trailer that this game has everything -- and I do mean EVERYTHING. Want a huge colossus? We got one for ya. Historically-correct giant crab? Right here. Prince of Persia jumping and flipping? Of course. Dark voodoo powers? You want 'em -- you got 'em. Magic sword fighting? Nothing goes better with dark voodoo powers than magic sword fights, so naturally they're included too.
But, wait. Something's missing. I can't quite put my finger on it.
Oh, right. It's that whole pirate thing. Where are the ships? The plank? The pubs and wenches? The grog? How about just a flipping eye patch?
I can't see one thing in this trailer that gives me any reason to think this game should be called Pirates: Legend of the Black Buccaneer. No wonder I haven't heard of it. I hate it and it isn't even out yet.
When the title card "Challenging Puzzles!" came up, I actually thought to myself "don't be a crate, anything but a crate". And what was it? A crate.
