LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean :: Wii Game Review

Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean get the LEGO treatment and the results are pretty awesome!

So far we have seen LEGO tackle the world of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman, Harry Potter, and more in their video games. This time, LEGO brings their unique and fun-loving style to Pirates of the Caribbean.

 

 

It's a LEGO Pirate's Life

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean covers the first four movies, only missing story and content from the new movie that is coming out this summer. True to LEGO style, everything is made out of LEGO pieces that you can break and rebuild in order to collect stuff and get to the end of the level to move on in the story.

As usual, there is drop-in/drop-out co-op available on split screen. You can play over 70 different characters but, outside of the main 10 characters, the rest are kind of useless and uninteresting. Certain characters have abilities that you need to use in order to solve puzzles and unlock areas in levels. For example, Will Turner can throw his axe to hit far away targets.

Scuppering Scurvy and Other Bad Things

Controls seems to be an ongoing issue with LEGO games. Certain jumps are frustrating to do and it's hard to aim your attacks during fights, especially if it gets chaotic and you are trying to avoid hitting your friend. For the most part, the levels are really good and keeps the game interesting. They take you deeper into the Pirates world than the movie does. There are some puzzles that are a bit dumb and you may spend more time than necessary to do something small in order to beat the level.

Overall, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is a fun game and is highly recommended to LEGO and Pirate fans. The Wii version has the same content and features as the XBox and PlayStation version, just with lower graphic settings.
