Summary: It's pretty good, you can swap between Jack Sparrow and Will Turner, and each of them have their own unique abilities and things of that nature. In this game, Jack and Will are stealing an object from a Spanish fortress in Panama, but are double-crossed. They are then captured and sentenced to be hanged. trying to buy time before the Black pearl arrives, Jack begins telling of his amazing adventures, some of which are not entirely true.

Summary: When a major movie franchise is released, it's never long before the film studio decides to cash in on mega sales from game tie-ins. Some game developers rush out a poor game e.g. The Mummy while others put more time and effort into recreating the movie's world, as shown by Harry Potter games. Jack Sparrow's latest adventure falls somewhere in the middle. The game is set during the first movie.
Pros: Johnny Depp reprises role, variety of boss battles
Cons: short game, too many combos, no upgrades, tough boss battles
Summary: This game seemed to promise quite a bit at first but in the end turned out to be a fairly average slash and stab game that left me feeling a bit disappointed. As far as plot goes this game attempts to tell the story of how Captain Jack the character played by Johnny Depp in the film came to be the pirate that was featured in the successful movies, indeed Depp has leant his voice to support this game but it comes across as a bit flat like he was only there for the money.
Excerpt: This Should be left at the bottom of the Ocean it makes opening a door or chest very hard work.I also reccomend that you learn the lock on key without it you would end up attacking thin air. This game shall rot at the bottom of the sea.
