LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game
24 June 2011
Conclusion: And that’s really the one of the key words here, “solid”. It’s a by-the-numbers entry in the series that doesn’t bother to attempt the type of meaningful additions seen in LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars . As such, a recommendation can only come with a number of caveats. If you’re a Pirates of the Caribbean fan, have a friend, sibling or girlfriend to play it with and aren’t yet burnt out on the LEGO series this might be one for you.
Summary: The LEGO games may have the most stubbornly rigid template around, but there’s no denying that it works. The simplicity in which it undertakes recreating mega-franchises in yellow brick form can often lead to a spoof-like joy of feverish adventuring that turns out better than its fleshy counterpart. That’s partly why Pirates Of The Caribbean proves a perfect licence.
