    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.

    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]
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  6. The dull, repetitive combat and uninspired mission structure prevent At World's End from being much fun.

    The PS2 version is a generic action-adventure movie rip-off that manages to bore from the start to the finish. [June 2007]

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
    From Fun to a Chore
    At Worlds End is a game from 2007 so there are no trophies... you play as multiple characters throughout this 6 hour journey but you’ll mostly be playing as captain jack sparrow, after the Heart of Davy Jones
    This game is based off of the movie with the same name and there are few cut scenes here and there but this game is much more focused on the gameplay than the story which isn’t necessarily a good thing..
    Because this drains the game of any character or charm and the gameplay is just a chore
    I enjoyed the first moments of this game... I thought it would be just a linear uncharted or tomb raider type game staring jack sparrow with sword fighting...
    This is how it starts out… but it quickly turns into a boring fight enemies, run to a new location fight more enemies, rinse and repeat in uninteresting locations until the credits roll…
    The platforming and climbing the early parts of this game introduces are sprinkled into levels, but it’s rare and hardly ever has to do with traversing levels.. mostly used to reach collectables that other than score chasing do absolutely nothing for you…
    To break up the monotony of sword slashing you’ll occasionally do a dueling mini game of blocking in the direction your enemy is attacking and then attack back…
    not enjoyable in anyway..
    surprisingly the dull combat of occasionally having bullets or daggers to through is miles more fun…
    but in no way engaging, its mindless and takes no effort…
    Except for when the game teams you up with useless allies turning this into a baby sitters game…
    Your ai controlled teammate doesn’t do any damage but they can take damage…
    So you’ll have to swap characters and keep their health up while trying to accomplish a task with the other character…
    At Worlds End has its moments in the beginning, and it does mix the gameplay up enough to not make this 6hours feel like an ultimate drag…
    But none of it is fun or engaging..
    This game ends up just being a chore.
    I give Pirated of The Caribbean at Worlds End
    a 5/10

    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 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 »
