    If you like the films then rent this game because it has so many flaws it would be a waste of money buying it.

    When i first saw this game i was blown away by the amount of detail the developers have put into it. Its one of the best looking games on the 360 to date. Yes the combat controls leave much to be desired, but you need to consider the target audience here,younger kids would have trouble if you had lots of complicated combos i think.And lets not forget its pirates you are controling in this When i first saw this game i was blown away by the amount of detail the developers have put into it. Its one of the best looking games on the 360 to date.

How much would you expect a pirate to do before it becomes unbelieveable? I think that POTC:AWE is a well rounded, fun game(however basic the controles may be) that the whole family can enjoy. Expand

    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.

    Let's put it this way: if it came down to playing this game for seven hours or walking the plank, it would be a tough choice. Save your hard-earned cash for a barrel of rum and consider a rental.

    It's deep enough and features enough referential material to draw in the diehard fans of the source material but it isn't innovative or interesting enough to stand alone in the action genre. However, if you come in with lowered expectations, you just might have fun with it.
