This installment does what every other installment has done. Characters have specific abilities that allow them to solve various puzzles. There are 20 story missions, five for each movie. The same LEGO formula holds true in this installment. There are 85 gold bricks in all. For each story mission a gold brick is earned for completion in story mode and gathering enough studs to earn "True Pirate". There are 10 hidden ships in a bottle to find in each level that are used to build a LEGO mini-kit and there is a new addition - discovering a specific set of LEGO items that are hidden in a level usually with the aid of Jack Sparrow's compass.
This game falls into the same category as the recently released LEGO Star Wars 3. The LEGO series took a drastic leap forward with lighting and overall appearance in LEGO SW3, and that same graphical boost is present in this game. It's clear that LEGO has raised the bar graphically. I expect all future LEGO games will look this good. The only thing is to make sure that your system meets the minimum requirements. You must have a dedicated graphics card that has a minimum of Shader Model 2, graphics processors that are integrated into the motherboard will not suffice.
This game is in the same mold as other recent LEGO games. Areas in the hub world are locked off until you collect enough gold bricks.Read more ›
Compared to many of there other titles I must say that this is the best out of all of them!
So, without further adieu here are the pros and cons!
1. Graphics are crisp and clean with very nice lighting effects and textures throughout.
2. Gameplay is fun as it includes puzzles and various elements that make you think or go hunting.
3. Very family appropriate! I've heard of some parents not letting their kids watch the Pirates series, but as the game goes-- there's nothing to worry about. A lot of the more "scary" or "violent" elements from the movies have been tuned down a lot. Many of the cutscenes are actually pretty funny.
4. The items you can use range from swords to bananas! There is a ton of funny items that appear during the game!
5. Great replay value!
1. No manual saving-- The game saves only after each level.
2. Load times can be a pain.
3. Doesn't always follow the storyline exactly, but I think that is because they (again) tried to make it kid friendly.
4. Controls at first are strange as you don't use the mouse. You can't control the camera, but after a little while the controls are easy to use.
If you want a very fun and light game go with this! Good for all ages and always keeps me wanting more!
This game is one of the best and while it doesnt implement some nice things from Lego Clone Wars, it sure is up there next to Batman 2 and LOTR Lego games (which I consider the best of the series so far)
The game will have the player witness the events of the 4 movies of the Disney Franchise through the lens of the Lego games narrative. The gameplay is the same with few additions (like improved boss battles) but the way the story is presented, in such a humorous and cute way is definitively a seller.
I gave it 4 stars for 2 reasons: 1, the game, while fun and entertaining, is still way too similar to older games in the series, very little is new and 2, the game doesnt register on Steam, which is normal for Disney games in general, but still a hindrance.
This is a great family game.
PS, I've tested this game on Windows 7, 8 RP, and 8 Pro on a fairly low-range graphics card, and its worked flawlessly on all three. So compatibility should be fine. However, if you are having any problems or questions, please comment and I should be able to help!
