Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
After a few days of owning the game it is easy to say that if you are a fan of lego games, this is a must own. If you are a Pirates series fan, this game is a must own. Don't wait, buy it now.
The controls are great, the visual and audio are great. The cutscenes take you back to the movies, although a little long, and they are great if you are a Pirates series fan. Plenty of sword fighting and the AI actually fights back which is fun. The compass system that Captain Jack uses to find items and treasure is innovative and fun and incorporates other characters and their abilities. After just the first few levels you already unlock characters with abilities that would allow you go back in free play and find a few more hidden items as opposed to the latest Lego games where you had to practically finish the game before you had any reason to go back in free play mode.
Overall a great game and worth the full price. It's so good I haven't even finished Lego Star Wars the Clone Wars yet but will now have to get through most of this one before I even have a desire to play anything else.
The game does include the new movie, so be warned that you could get some stuff spoiled. I may wait on those levels until after I see the movie, but with trailers the way they are nowadays, you probably won't see too much more than you have already seen in the commercials. But I think it's great so I don't have to buy a Lego Pirates version 2 in 6 months.
