    As far as lego games go, this is great. It has the same music as in the films, the graphics are good, and the 3D effect is great, though often isn't present in cutscenes. You can play as different characters from the films, each with their various own abilities. The game takes you through the four films, each consisting of four levels.

It has the same music as in the films, the graphics are good, and the 3D effect is great, though often isn't present in cutscenes. You can play as different characters from the films, each with their various own abilities. The game takes you through the four films, each consisting of four levels. These contain puzzles that require specific characters to use their unique abilities. The puzzles are mostly great fun, challenging, and rarely get old. As well as this, there are enemy fights, but they are far too easy as if you die you respawn on the spot, just lose some coins. Also there are special duels against key characters, but they just require you to mash particular buttons and grow stale very quickly. Luckily, the game isn't a breeze, because the puzzles are challenging. It is over quickly though. On top of the main game, there is a streetpass duel mode, but I've already mentioned that duels get old quickly. Thankfully, there's a co-op mode as well. 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.

    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!

    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.

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

    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.

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