Yar-har matey! Captain Jack Sparrow is back on the high seas with Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann in another pirate adventure. It's based on the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest movie and it lets you play through the action, adventure and fun on the Nintendo DS. But, is this game a load of booty, or a heap of sea muck? Find out with our game review!

Pirate Action on the Nintendo DS

The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest action on the Nintendo DS lets you play as Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner or Elizabeth Swann and, basically, beat up bad guys and collect loot through dozens of levels. The more loot you collect, the more special moves you can unlock.

Loot, Booty and Treasure in the Dead Man's Chest

As if being a pirate isn't cool enough, you also get to unleash all kinds of special moves with three different characters! This gives you tons of fun options for kicking butt in battles. Plus, there are lots of levels and they're quite cool.

Scurvy Sea Dogs and Davey Jones' Locker!

The biggest problem with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is that the graphics are so dark it's hard to see what's going on. The bad guys are really dumb too and you can beat them with the same trick over and over and over. You also barely ever use the DS' Touch Screen, and that's a real shame!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Booty or Muck?

If you're a pirate-lovin' sea dog, you'll get a kick out of this game. But, if you're looking for a real booty-kicker of a game, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest falls short of being awesome.
