Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Playstation Illustrated
28 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Look and feel are certainly the best parts of this venture, which means that more than a few copies will fly off shelves based on previews. Gotta give credit to the folks who scripted the opening cinematic, because they make Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest look much more engaging than it turned out to be. The game soundtrack is great, as was the movie music.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Review

19 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Following the plot of the recently released movie of the same name, Dead Man's Chest attempts to bring the fun and entertainment of the blockbuster to the small (but relatively large) PSP screen. This is also an original PSP game; it hasn't been ported across from the PlayStation 2 and hasn't simply been upgraded from the DS version that is released at the same time.

  • Summary: BVG delivers a very mediocre hack-and-slasher that becomes almost unplayable at times.
  • Pros: Quality presentation faithful to Pirates of the Caribbean; good graphics for Jack Sparrow and NPC's alike; environments are nicely detailed; decent sound effects; voice acting is okay.
  • Cons: Gameplay is run of the mill hack and slash action; next to impossible to take on multiple enemies without taking major damage; crippling glitches with camera functions in tight spaces make the game almost unplayable at times.

  • Conclusion: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is the typical license milking drivel that you see when a hit movie comes out. Aside from the audio in the game, just about everything here screams unpolished and underdeveloped. The adventure itself is fine for what it is but the combat system here is entirely inexcusable thanks to the lack of defense and fight-by-number set up. The puzzles are a little too simple though the multiplayer proves to be a worthwhile diversion.

  • Conclusion: If you're a big fan of Pirates of the Caribbean , Dead Man's Chest complements the films pretty nicely, and you'll probably be more willing to overlook the one-trick combat and ill-conceived platforming in the single-player game than most. Without some affection for the source material, though, Dead Man's Chest will seem like a pretty unremarkable action adventure with a fair amount of wasted potential.
  • Pros: Rousing Hans Zimmer score, multiplayer naval battles surprisingly fun.
  • Cons: Swordplay is shallow and repetitive, controls are too imprecise for platforming sections, endgame structure can make for tedious backtracking.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

  • Conclusion: If you’re completely obsessed with the movie, then you may end up liking the game. The issues mentioned herein are extremely noticeable, even for younger players so be sure to keep that in mind. Given the high price of PSP games, you’ll likely want to try Pirates out before you go ahead and buy the game. Dead Man’s Chest offers a fairly lengthy adventure and the multiplayer is a sheer blast to play through.
