  1. Exactly like every other cookie-cutter movie/cartoon-licensed platformer.
  2. The game is inadequate and tedious--22 levels of mindless button mashing that will come as a major letdown to anyone who grabs it hoping to relive any portion of the film.

    Every fight and puzzle "packed" into this game's 20-plus levels would be found in the first level of most other games. [Fall 2003, p.51]

I thought we were searching for treasure, not lost progress. Poor gameplay. An unbelievably poor representation of Jack Sparrow, as a bald-headed, naive, uncertain apprentice. Zero connection to the actual movie. Poor all the way around. Full Review »
