  1. The DS rendition of At World's End delivers a good mix of sword fighting and acrobatic exploration that jibes with the movie's overall tone.

    Both movie fans and general gamers should get a few hours of fun out of it, and frustration is kept at a minimum -- preventing you from becoming an irate pirate.

    The dueling is fun, and it's even available as a multiplayer game. Unfortunately, you need two copies of the game to take advantage of it.
  4. Nintendo Power
    Touch-screen based boss duels add some decent variety, and plenty of collectibles plus a few bonus levels are nice inclusions for the completist. [July 2007, p.94]
  5. 70
    Could this be the best game version of At World's End? Sure, but realistically that isn't too difficult. Good for a run-through.
  6. Some solid action could keep fans entertained for a while, although this one will not be as fondly remembered as the film on which it’s based in years to come.
  7. An enjoyable, if slightly simple, way to spend a few hours. It's as addictive as side-scrollers come but is overly reliant on its film inspiration to fill in the gaps of the story and create a pre-existing bond with characters.
  8. Yet one more DS game that rises above minimal expectations. It’s not a must-have by any means, it doesn’t reinvent the genre and really doesn’t add anything new, but it doesn’t come across as a half-assed attempt to capitalize on a license.

    It's clear that the development teams at Amaze are improving their DS productions.
  10. Nintendo Gamer
    Lumpen stuff partially saved by nifty duelling sections. [Aug 2007, p.70]
  11. AceGamez
    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End wasn't the most exciting movie. It was good, but it did have parts where I wished it would move on quicker. The At World's End game had me feeling the same way. There are action-packed parts, but other parts are pretty boring.
