    If you’re a fan of the movies, you’ll dig playing the game. Just be sure to check your brain at the door, as it makes solid use of an existing action template, but innovates very little in the process.
  2. Ultimately, between the short campaign and the rather bland combat, Pirates doesn’t do a lot to separate itself from the heap of other action games just like it.
  3. I'd even go out on a limb that it's probably one of the best movie to game renditions I've ever played (although that's not saying a whole lot), and it would be perfect for the youngsters.

    Sure, it's cool that you'll find references to some of the more popular third-person action titles, such as Prince of Persia's balance-beam act and hand-over-hand wall crawling, but nothing in here screams innovation.
  5. The dull, repetitive combat and uninspired mission structure prevent At World's End from being much fun.
  6. Without the unlockables, this game lasts three hours. You're better off using those three hours to watch the very film instead. [July 2007, p.82]
  7. The PS2 version is a generic action-adventure movie rip-off that manages to bore from the start to the finish. [June 2007]
  8. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is a bad offering, even for big fans of the trilogy.
  9. 40
    It's a shame that a decent IP has succumb to so much average, derivative, and plain boring gameplay.
  10. You'll quickly find yourself bored or frustrated. [Aug 2007, p.86]

    Thought it was a great game,loved it!! But lets just put it this way, i was so dissapointed to find that i bought it on a saturday and completed it on the monday. That is how short this game is. After that you just have to unlock all characters by playing all levels but in sort of mini game ways with repetative fighting. In otherwards do not buy this game unless you are a VERY BIG FAN of pirates. Full Review »

    They game is repetative and the graphics are awful.The only reason I gave it a five, is because i am a big fan of the movies.
