    Repetitive, well-worn gameplay. [June 2011, p.62]

    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.

    I fully realize this is for the younger gamer that enjoys more collection/customization, but I expected just a bit more action in this game like I experienced in the console versions. The modifications and cuts from the bigger console versions really made a difference, as there is just a bit more 'dull' in the 3DS version. It's still fun, but not as fun as it could 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.

    As far as film tie-ins go, Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is easily one of the better ones, but it's doesn't compare so well to the other Lego tie-ins.

    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.

    As expected, it's a fun game for children, but the problem is that the formula begins to show its age and the experience is too limited.

    Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is cute, colorful, and boring.

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. Full Review »
