    It's the best game on the 3DS I've ever played and the mix of LEGO and Pirates of the Caribbean, the gameplay, the atmosphere and the story is nearly perfect. If you like Pirates of the Caribbean, then this one is a no-brainer.

    The 3D really is a big addition in this case, as well, allowing you to see environments more clearly and complete jumps that would otherwise be much more difficult. And with the small number of 3DS games on the market right now, you could certainly do worse than LEGO Pirates.

    Lego Pirates of the Caribbean on the 3DS does a solid job of showcasing how fun Lego games can be.

    An enjoyable addition to the series and a fun experience. The level design and lack of difficulty make this particularly suitable for less experienced or casual gamers while potentially disenchanting seasoned players.

    Whilst LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game has some fantastic ideas included that help make it appeal to all audiences, at the same time there is far too much retreading of old ground during the adventure and the overall challenge is considerably lacking, thus relegating this to a 'rent first' type of game.
  6. 60
    In general, this portable version of Pirates of the Caribbean is a good game, full of memorable moments for those who know the movies, with even some references loaded with humor. Although it has plenty of incentive to prolong the game, the adventure is too short, and essentially devoid of challenge.

It makes the graphics look better than PS2 and even the gameplay is just as smooth. It's very easy though when it comes to combat, but this isn't a hack n slash, it's about exploration, and the free play sure as all lets you do that. If youre into exploration in platformers, get this game. Only negative being that it's very easy. Expand

Perhaps I set my expectations a little too high, because what I got was a good, but not great platformer. The graphics are as pretty as ever, and all the characters look right, but the problem comes from the fact that barely any of the environments are made of Lego themselves, or if they are they donâ Expand

    Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game
    A Bunch of busy work.
    LEGO Pirates tells the story of the first 4 pirates of the Caribbean movies and is hands down the most boring lego game I’ve ever played
    I’m a decent fan of the pirates movies.. I enjoy their stories and characters…
    what I’m not a fan of however is lego games…
    but at least past lego games have been a little engaging...
    This one is just a bunch of boring chores…
    like every lego game you control multiple characters at once…
    and you can play local co-op…
    break things to build things and collect studs…
    LEGO pirates though is more about finding than it is building though…
    Specifically when you have jack sparrow in your crew as he has a compass that will take you to an item you need to bring to someone else to get them to join your crew or pick up and place somewhere on the map to continue the story..
    This monotonous item hunting is the entire game…
    its 8 and a half hours of boring finding items and trading items…
    There are a few short lived fun moments in the game that I feel should’ve been used more like rolling around in a ball cage or using the underwater barrels…
    but these moments make up a grand total of about 5 minutes…
    the rest of the game is aimlessly breaking things or throwing items at targets while a bunch of annoying enemies slash at you…
    there are boss battles here too.. Also boring…
    chasing characters around a map and mashing the attack button while your crew pretends to be helping... but they’re not...
    they’re useless throughout the entire game…
    they won’t pull switches, they won’t stay in positions you place them…
    it’s annoying having to manage them in moments you need them to stay still..
    Of course I’m thankful for them following me during the few platforming sections and I need their skill to repair something or I need their saber to pull a lever and they’re right there...
    but this game definitely needed an option of making a character stay put…
    I would’ve thought that maybe this game could’ve been saved by the story and charm of the characters.. But this isn’t the case either as the story telling was awful too… I had no idea what was going on... and again... I’ve seen the movies…
    LEGO pirates of the Caribbean is the weakest lego game I’ve played to date…
    I’m waiting for one to change my mind…
    but this wasn’t it..
    I give Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game
    a 5/10

Pero a laA mi casi siempre me parecen divertidos los juegos de LEGO. Pero este es Malisimo!!!! Jugabilidad(0): el control no es incomodo. Pero a la hora de luchar aprietas para pegar con la espada dos veces y ya lo matas. Ademas el juego es super corto (dura como unas 9 horas). Son en total 16 niveles, que yo solo pase 8, porque me aburre jugarlo. Y cuando luchas con un, por decirle "Jefe", no es que luchas sino que tienes que apretar el boton A o B rapido, bueno "rapido". A la velocidad de una tortuga. Es demasiado facil. Tecnologia(2): le doy 2 porque no tiene tan malos graficos Graficos(6.5): no son malos pero tampoco buenos Sonido: el sonido es muy bueno. se escucha bastante bien sin auriculares. lo mejor del juego Innovacion: nada de innovacion, nada.
