Showing 1-10 of 15
Fun but glitchy and ultimately frustrating.

Summary: I love all the Lego games, and can play them for hours at a time. However, this game (and maybe it's just my copy) is so glitchy that it takes a lot of the fun out of it. I had to shut my system off about 10 times because the game completely froze. This is pretty frustrating when you've been playing a level for 20 minutes and then everything is wiped out. There was also at least one level where no matter how many times I hit the bad guy, she wouldn't drop below 4 stars.
Summary: It is a great one player game but the evolving split-screen is terrible. Two player mode is basically unusable and totally frustrating. The extra characters are not as "smart" as in the other Lego games I've played and they are in your way a lot. Other than that, it is a lot of fun.
Summary: While this game is overall fun, it takes several steps back from other Lego games I have played. I'll start with the problems: After my first gaming session I returned to the game. Instead of an option to "continue" I have to click 9 (NINE) buttons to skip cut scenes and confirm confirmations just to get to the hub of the game.
Summary: First, let's just get the good part out of the way - the game is great. Many fun characters, great hub world, interesting story levels, minikits to find in freeplay - it has what you've come to expect and appreciate. Oh, and no lame vehicle levels so that's a plus. It has the new dynamic split screen introduced with Lego Indian Jones 2, so daddy no longer accidentally drags his son to Lego-doom.
Summary: The Lego series of games don't offer much in terms of variety other than whichever license they represent: beating up on enemies, collecting stud pieces, smashing things up to get said stud pieces, etc. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is no different, but for what's it's worth, like the Lego games before it, it's still fun.
Summary: I bought this because my mate at work harps on about Lego games all the time. It was ok. But there were bugs galore. Intolerable when you work in software! Sheesh. Sorry. Shouldn't be so damming. Go for it, it's a laugh.
Summary: I find if you play 2 players then the second screen shows the ceiling/trees and no matter where you direct your character it doesn't go in that direction but as a single player it's as good as the rest of the Lego series
Summary: My partner is not a gamer, but there is one franchise that she loves - the LEGO games. We have in our time played and completed them all from `Star Wars' all the way to `Harry Potter' (and seemingly back again). The series of games have all been pretty similar - 2 player local co-op, platforming, cartoon fighting, building and finding hidden items.
