LEGO plus Pirates of the Caribbean. That’s all of the PotC movies right up to Number 4 - Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
The game makes full use of the Pirates of the Caribbean universe with the ability for the player to interact with more than 70 characters – both new and classical – from one of the movie world’s most successful franchises.
These characters will be encountered over 20 different levels from each of the movies but rendered in the classic LEGO style.
While as ever with LEGO titles, puzzle solving and piece collecting are the orders of the day, in LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean there is also combat to contend with. This comes mainly in the form of intense sword fights in which the full force of the environment must be used.
Everything is held together in a seamless and engaging narrative by use of cutscenes in which everyone's favourite scenes from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies are brought to life using minifigures and the kind of humour gamers have comes to expect from LEGO video games.
As well as single-player story mode, there is also two-player co-op wherein a gamer can join a friend for drop-in, drop-out local cooperative action.
There is also a Freeplay mode in which gamers building a collection of characters throughout the game and use the characters’ abilities to unlock previously unavailable areas.
My 10 year old son loves this game. We purchased it for the Nintendo Wii the day it came out since he had waited anxiously for it's release.
In the beginning you start out in the game just as the 1st of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies starts out. You begin playing as Will, in your blacksmith shop making swords. Suddenly Captain Jack Sparrow (Lego version of course) appears and you begin to duel with swords. Each time you accomplish something in the game, or you complete a level, you watch part of the Lego version of the movie. You are actually watching the entire Pirates of the Caribbean movie done with Lego characters.
After you have completed certain areas of the game, Jack is then added to your character wheel of people you can play as in the game. As you go along, more and more characters are added to the wheel. Each level offers something new and it is by no means a game that is so simple it could be completed in a single day. It offers challenges, but is not frustrating. You actually get to play through the whole movie as you go along, so you have an idea from watching the movies what you need to do next. Having the two player option is great and a lot of fun when trying to complete more difficult goals.
While nothing is scary in the game (everyone of course being Legos), they did a tremendous job making the Lego version of the Pirate of the Caribbean just like the original. Very comical and fun to watch, this game was so very much worth the wait and a MUST HAVE for the Lego video game players out there.
