Summary: For the longest time, I have not cared too much about the long-running series of Lego games for whatever reason, but thanks to the likes of Lego Batman 2 on the DS and this game, I'm starting to finally get into it all! Better late than never, I suppose. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is a 3D platformer that focuses a lot on solving a bunch of little puzzles to get through the levels based off of events from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
Summary: My son is obsessed with the Lego games on all systems- 3DS, PSP, PS3, and the Wii. I think the play value on this one was a little lower than the other ones out there only because he was able to complete the game in a week. During the time he played, he thoroughly enjoyed it, needing very little help. He laughed at some of the cut scenes, which brought the same comical value as the movies. He liked the different characters and their different abilities.
Summary: I don't understand the bad reviews this game gets. It WAS a little too easy but it was aimed mainly at kids I guess, but I really enjoyed it. I played through to 100% which took about 15 hours, left it alone for a couple weeks and decided to play through again. Second time only took 10 hours. One complaint is that the sword battles against bosses are lame. You spam X for a few seconds, then hit 3 quick response buttons, then repeat 2 more times.
Summary: I originally ordered this game for my girlfriend to give her something relatively new on the new (to her) PSP I promised her after I bought a PS Vita and she loved it (she's a big Lego game and Pirates of the Caribbean fan). So I bought it on the PS Store and tried it for myself and as PSP games go it's fantastic. It's very different to the PS3 version of the game, and is incredibly easy, but it's so addictive.
Summary: Of all the games moved onto the PSP, the lego series fit very well and this one is no exception. If you are already a good fan of the lego games then you will know what to expect and it lives up to expectations. It follows all the stories very well and includes all the same features of lego games that we have grown to love. If you have already been a fan of lego games and you like the pirates of the Caribbean films then this is definitely worth it.
Summary: This is my first experience of a Lego game on PSP - bought to stop arguments when 3 of us want to play the PS3 version. It's a polished platformer, with beautiful visuals and full of the usual trade mark Lego humour. My only beef is that it's a little too easy - even my 6 year old has breezed through the game with virtually no problem.
