    LOJS is such an unapologetic console port that the enclosed instructions on keyboard commands elicit more of a sense of amusement--how sweet of them to pretend this is useful!--than education. [Nov. 2006, p.116]
  2. A pretty standard hack-and-slash action game that doesn't deliver on much of the stumblingly bombastic charm of its title character.
  3. Learning the game's controls (once you get them configured that is) doesn't take long, but Legend of Jack Sparrow's use of save points really becomes frustrating very quickly.
  4. For a game that was inspired by a movie that was inspired by a theme park ride that was originally inspired by a book, The Legend of Jack Sparrow is less than inspired.

    The script and the acting is great, but the imagination going into the levels is hugely lacking. [Oct 2006, p.78]
  6. The Legend of Jack Sparrow is bogged down by a host of flaws, but in the end, it's still a passably entertaining sword-brawler.
  7. 50
    The swordplay never truly excites, while the puzzles and enemies never rise above mediocrity. The game doesn't look very good for a PC title, but fans of the action genre will need to look elsewhere for carnage on the high seas.

The end battles are anti-climactic at best, since the most difficult one (Blacksmoke James) appears about 3/4 of the way through (half of that difficulty caused by lag from the smoke particles), and everything else is just hack and slash. The final battle with Barbosa stops being fun about half way through the fight - it's not that challenging, just too darn long! This game has definitely lowered the chance of my purchasing another game from this company - too many bugs, poorly thought out, character rendering that looks like it's from the early 90's - what's not to love?
