    It's the best game on the 3DS I've ever played and the mix of LEGO and Pirates of the Caribbean, the gameplay, the atmosphere and the story is nearly perfect. If you like Pirates of the Caribbean, then this one is a no-brainer.

    The 3D really is a big addition in this case, as well, allowing you to see environments more clearly and complete jumps that would otherwise be much more difficult. And with the small number of 3DS games on the market right now, you could certainly do worse than LEGO Pirates.

    Lego Pirates of the Caribbean on the 3DS does a solid job of showcasing how fun Lego games can be.

    An enjoyable addition to the series and a fun experience. The level design and lack of difficulty make this particularly suitable for less experienced or casual gamers while potentially disenchanting seasoned players.

    Whilst LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game has some fantastic ideas included that help make it appeal to all audiences, at the same time there is far too much retreading of old ground during the adventure and the overall challenge is considerably lacking, thus relegating this to a 'rent first' type of game.
  6. 60
    In general, this portable version of Pirates of the Caribbean is a good game, full of memorable moments for those who know the movies, with even some references loaded with humor. Although it has plenty of incentive to prolong the game, the adventure is too short, and essentially devoid of challenge.

    The game is actually pretty good, a noticeable improvement in graphics, gameplay, and sound over Lego Star Wars III, which I also own. Looking forward to Harry Potter on the 3DS this fall! Expand

    I have played lots of Lego games like Lego Star Wars series and Lego Indiana Jones, etc. But on the 3DS which i bought new a coupled of weeks ago, i bought the new Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. And lets say it looks way better than any other Lego game i have played, and on a 3DS handheld console to! I was just surprised at how the game play, the beauty of the graphics, the easy controls, the adventure sense on the free play while keeping its platform style gaming. its great! You play thru every movie tittle but in Lego, and its funny how they just parodied every part of the movie on the game.

    In all Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean is a very fun, subtitled for all ages type of game. Its fun, beautiful, and it has a great replay value thanks to its free play mode, collections, and other nice stuff for those on the 100% completion. Right now its on a good price, so go check it out, and have a blast.

    Seriously, one of the most surprising games on the 3DS. Also surprising, how good the subtle 3D works. It makes the graphics look better than PS2 and even the gameplay is just as smooth. It's very easy though when it comes to combat, but this isn't a hack n slash, it's about exploration, and the free play sure as all lets you do that. If youre into exploration in platformers, get this game. Only negative being that it's very easy. Expand

    Having loved many of the previous Lego interpretations of classic films, and also loving the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, I expected to adore this game. Perhaps I set my expectations a little too high, because what I got was a good, but not great platformer. The graphics are as pretty as ever, and all the characters look right, but the problem comes from the fact that barely any of the environments are made of Lego themselves, or if they are they donâ Expand

    A mi casi siempre me parecen divertidos los juegos de LEGO. Pero este es Malisimo!!!! Jugabilidad(0): el control no es incomodo. Pero a la hora de luchar aprietas para pegar con la espada dos veces y ya lo matas. Ademas el juego es super corto (dura como unas 9 horas). Son en total 16 niveles, que yo solo pase 8, porque me aburre jugarlo. Y cuando luchas con un, por decirle "Jefe", no es que luchas sino que tienes que apretar el boton A o B rapido, bueno "rapido". A la velocidad de una tortuga. Es demasiado facil. Tecnologia(2): le doy 2 porque no tiene tan malos graficos Graficos(6.5): no son malos pero tampoco buenos Sonido: el sonido es muy bueno. se escucha bastante bien sin auriculares. lo mejor del juego Innovacion: nada de innovacion, nada.
