  1. A wonderful surprise for GBA owners and fans of the film looking to take the experience home.
  2. Although the naval battles are by far more exciting, the sidescrolling stuff is still fun. If you're interested in the film, the game is worth a pickup.
  3. 75
    The side scrolling sections aren't horribly difficult and you'll find yourself doing a fair amount of button mashing and the sea battles are a bit lacking when compared to games like Pirates!, but the whole package comes together quite nicely, even with those minor issues.
  4. It's actually a decent clone of Castlevania gameplay mixed with good ship combat.
  5. 70
    One of the better license games we've played, and one of the best license games of the summer.
  6. Tries to do a lot of things and wind up not doing very many of them well. It's a good effort but you can find a lot of better titles out there.
  7. Regardless, it's nice to see that game makers haven't stuffed the GBA into Davy Jone's locker just yet, and that some developers still know that a big-name franchise isn't an excuse to make a half-baked game. [Aug 2006, p.85]
  8. Intriguing nautical elements aren't enough to distract from a criminally short running time and rote 2D platforming elements.
