    There's nothing in here that transforms the LEGO experience for the better or worse, but it may be the best Pirates of the Caribbean game produced thus far.

    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.

    A fun, if incredibly easy, single-player action game for the Nintendo 3DS which actually makes good use of the 3D. If you are looking for a fun diversion on your new handheld, it's a game that may very well fit the bill.
  6. A nice take on the Pirates films, but it's too simplistic for seasoned gamers.

    This is a fun and well-built adventure which knows how to use the 3D effect. A good start for licensed games on the system, providing a very enjoyable experience, although with no multiplayer.

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 »
