Pirates of the Caribbean

Xbox-Hq.Com
7 May 2004
  • Excerpt: Not to be confused with the movie (which I did), Pirates of the Caribbean is a RPG that creates an entirely new experience. Although the absence of Johnny Depp may cause some disappointment (or maybe not), choosing a direction that is unique instead of following the movie is generally a better way...

  • Summary: I was really enthusiastic about this game. Especially after seeing the movie and watching Johnny Depp swagger about during the film and making it a very good summer flick. So imagine my surprise when I discovered he was not present in this game, nor was Orlando Bloom’s character.

  • Excerpt: Pirates of the Caribbean for Xbox has nothing to do with the Disney film of the same name--or the Disneyland ride, for that matter--except frilly shirts and a timely market presence.

Pirates of the Caribbean Review

IGN Entertainment
9 July 2003
  • Conclusion: In the end, Akella has done a great job considering that Pirates of the Caribbean was originally the sequel to Sea Dogs. Although the lackluster land gameplay drags the experience down a bit, the sailing parts of the game are just so exciting and enthralling that you can totally forget about the...

Pirates of the Caribbean

The Armchair Empire
6 April 2003
  • Excerpt: We’ve seen plenty of games based on movies over the years, sometimes turning out well, often times turning out poorly. But to see a game based on a movie based on a theme park ride is rather odd. Such is the case with Pirates of the Caribbean.

Active Network

  • Summary: "The sound effects are ok, but voice work becomes very irritating due to the repeated short snippets of dialogue. Music is also a bad point, it's too upbeat, unlike the perfect music that was in the original Sea Dogs game.
  • Pros: Excellent Graphics, Good story, Good side quests, Good role playing elements
  • Cons: Bad frame rate, Lots of bugs, Poor music, Repeated speech

Pirates Of The Caribbean

Gamecell
31 December 2003
  • Conclusion: Although the game looks fine, the graphics jerk occasionally and the text-only conversation interface harps back to point & click adventures of the early nineties. A timeskip button and "quick travel" facility allow you to teleport at certain times, but these tend to rob you of the more pleasurable...
  • Pros: Some lovely graphics, particularly from onboard ship.
  • Cons: Poor controls and a silly difficulty level.
