    The game looks fantastic, plays great and gives the player a ton of stuff to collect and unlock. I might hate the source material, but this is the 3DS gem everyone has been waiting for. If nothing else, it will keep you occupied until Nintendo's wave of June releases.

    Fans of the LEGO series are in for another treat with LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, as they have a new and enriched world to explore with all four movies included on the disc. I loved playing this latest LEGO game and really enjoyed the straightforward approach and the simpler puzzles that kept me venturing through. The comedic tone to the game is exactly what I expected from this title and it keeps the game family friendly and available to all ages with puzzles to solve, great gags to watch, and some addictive gameplay including two player co-op.

    A fun game for all the family, especially for the younger ones, with good graphics and great platform mechanics.

    LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is a great kids game, with a well realised story and fun characters, but it's also more of the same. In terms of the LEGO series to date then this is probably one of the better incarnations, but you just can't help but wonder where things could go from here.

    I will continue to sound like a broken record, but it's true. At a day and age where you can hold 60 bucks in your hand and have dozens of suitable unique gaming options in-hand, the Lego franchise is very quickly falling behind in my mind's eye for where my gaming money should go.

    The Pirates of the Caribbean license is just perfect for TT Games Lego adventures. But while Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is very entertaining, it is also unpolished and too hard for younger gamers.

    All in all, a disappointing effort given that Pirates of the Caribbean should have been a natural fit for the franchise. Maybe I was a mistaken on that front, or maybe it was just poor execution on the part of the developers, but this is certainly one of the weaker entries in the series. And yet, for all my complaints, the formula still works. It's still fun to unlock new characters and hunt for secret collectibles.

I am somewhat shocked by theIf you like the Lego video game series and you like the Pirates series, then you're going to love this game. I am somewhat shocked by the lackluster media review scores this is getting, as I can't really imagine what more one could expect from this title. Some of the reviews reveal less familiarity with past Lego titles, so perhaps the reviewers don't well represent the target audience. But as someone with a family who has played all of the previous Lego titles, I can say without reservation that this is exactly what we hoped it would be. The visuals and sounds are excellent, and the game play is solid. Players of previous Lego games, especially the younger ones, will feel right at home with all the familiar mechanics, and also energized with all the rope swinging, sword play and other swashbuckling antics brought out for this new theme. All of this is rendered with the same impressive new graphics engine used in the recent Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. Expand

    Another great game, the levels are mostly exciting and there is a lot to do, the only complaint I have is some of the stories are wrong, but its Lego.

    The platforming needs tightening up too along with the surprising lack off the level editor that was incorporated in Harry potter and Indy 2 I would hope it's removal is due computations while they where making the editor here's hoping it'll make a comeback in Lego Harry years 5 - 7

    Woo! Journey the seas as Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, Barbour, Elizabeth Swan, Davy Jones, or your favorite LEGO Pirates of the CaribbeanWoo! Journey the seas as Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, Barbour, Elizabeth Swan, Davy Jones, or your favorite LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean character!

    This game was exceedingly fun to play, and the creators took LEGO gaming to a whole new level. I recommend this game if you like both LEGO’s and Pirates of the Caribbean.

The levels for this game are fun but sometimes the environments really don't change much. Don't get me wrong it's a beautiful game but it needs a little more varied environments. The gameplay is sometimes very glitchy like any lego game but walking on planks could be worse since you can't walk straight at all. Another thing that bugs me is how some puzzles you have to figure out to advance through a level are actually really hard to find which happened way to many times. I even had to quit my game when I got stuck in the front of a boat. I also wish they could've had music from all 4 films instead of just the first 2. I am a big fan of POTC music and that kinda disappointed me. and now that I am done with negative comments, I will say this game looked very good and the gameplay got pretty fun at parts. The extras in the port royal hub were fun finding and the characters for the most part are unique and creative. The achievements were fun to get but easy, and the game overall was just really great though it had many issues. I would highly recommend this to any pirates or lego game fan but otherwise you might not like it. 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
