Pirates of the Caribbean was an exciting action adventure enjoyed by all ages. All three episodes appealed to gamers who like action adventure. When Lego released the game it was seen as the best action adventure to hit the gaming shelves. Everyone scrambled to buy the game. The movie had done a great job of marketing the game. It was supposed to be just like the movie.

There’s plenty of humor and joke telling in this storyline. You will definitely have some good laughs and entertainment. But it won’t be as entertaining as the movies. There isn’t enough action to keep you riveted to the screen. You won’t be captivated in the same manner as you were in the movies. The entertainment scenes are not that many and as you play the game, boredom is an ever present factor. You can’t sit for hours enjoying it as you do with other action adventures.

You move around collecting lego pieces, fighting enemies and making the area safe. You control a variety of characters in the game and you have to learn to use the controls efficiently for each character has its own special powers. Jack Sparrow is one of the key characters and you will need his compass for directions and navigation. You can jump, run, crawl and be very agile as you progress.

Everything that you saw in the movies is included in the game. But that doesn’t mean you will be laughing as much. The cut scenes are very entertaining and make the game more interesting. The graphics are excellent. This game uses an exciting modern graphics engine. You will need a good graphics card to appreciate the quality of the pictures. The characters are exciting and lifelike. They move around smoothly and there is no jerking or sticking movements as you use the controls. It is really a joy to move them around as they respond beautifully. The scenes in the game are beautiful too. The characters however do not speak so well. They communicate primitively and most of the dialogue isn’t clear. If you loved the music in the movies then you won’t be disappointed. All the music from the movies is incorporated in the game. Even if you do get bored playing the game, the music will keep you going.

The game is impressive. The lego pieces you collect will enable you to build new things. It is also your funds and you can become quite rich building up your finances. The fight scenes are not complicated and you can master it fairly quickly. There isn’t any real difficulty in advancing through the game, so younger children will find it suitable for them, but older gamers will tend to be frustrated with this easy gameplay.

Overall everything you saw in the movies is present and you should have a good time playing the game. There won’t be any adventures that are too difficult to master and you should easily complete the game in a fairly short time. You may find that a lot of the fighting is repetitive and you are not being challenged to the extreme like so many other adventure games you played before.

Your entire experience will be that the game is mediocre and nothing fantastic. If action adventure is your thing, then you won’t be left feeling utterly disappointed.
