3.0 out of 5 stars Easy brain candy after a hard day...., June 9, 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
I've played Lego Indiana, Star Wars and Harry Potter. This is the easiest of all of them, making it perfect after work brain-melter.

Stories: Hard to follow. They are extremely abridged and altered that its almost hard to distinquish that they are from the franchise.

Levels: Four movies, half having only four levels each.

Game play / challenge: This game does not get progressively harder. There is much redundancy (herding pigs, herding crabs, picking up stones) without increased challenge. The game tells you which player to choose for certain situations. The machines / mechanisms you use don't change and it is very easy to figure out what you need to do.

Overall: I think they short-changed the Lego franchise and the Pirates franchise by scrimping on the game play. They cut this game short. Harry Potter had so many levels and was so inventive on some of the tasks you needed to complete. This doesn't have any of it.

Pirates is a game you play when you just want to beat a game and burn brain cells. I'm playing it again so that I can use my full crew to get all of the goodies I couldn't get the first time around. I'll probably go back to Harry Potter and trade this towards something else...
