The kid got addicted to buying all the characters you can unlock through the game, and that becomes another challenge and added fun. Compared to Star Wars, this game has less machinery operation, and doesn't have many different game styles. Star Wars came with varying stages from operating a spaceship, building an army in a strategy-like level.
On the plus side, the game is less confusing than Star Wars, it's more straight forward, and there is sometimes an indicator that points where you should go/do next. At few times, the indicator was misleading though, but that was minor. Game is also relatively short compared to others I've played.
The biggest fun spoiler was the sudden crash. It happened few times during our game play, but we always managed to restart and move on. Until we reached the final boss. Just like it's been planted there to piss you off and take out all the fun. The game froze 3 times in a raw during final battle. There obviously is something wrong with the game, and we had to quit. Kid had to do with watching final boss battle video on YouTube and move on. Really sad how they failed to be little more careful towards the end, and spoil the whole game.
I, like some of the other 1 and 2-star reviews, found this game to be extremely buggy. I am a big fan of the LEGO game series but I also know that Traveller's Tales has a history of releasing buggy games. I own LEGO Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Harry Potter. Star Wars and Indiana Jones were pretty stable and bug-free, and Harry Potter had a few glitches, but overall wasn't bad. Nothing that a reset couldn't fix. There was an infamous glitch in Harry Potter Years 1-4 that had people leaving nasty reviews all over the place until TT released a patch to fix it.
However, I want to point out that at least in SOME discs of LEGO Pirates there are definitely some problems that, as of this review, have not been addressed.
In terms of gameplay, it's more of the typical LEGO stuff. Great to play with a friend or with kids. Very kid-friendly, and the cut scenes for Pirates really do a great job of showcasing the story for each of the Pirates movies (whereas in some other games, people unfamiliar w/the movies might be a little lost on what's going on). The graphics are slightly improved from previous titles and the swim/dive feature is a lot of fun and adds depth to the game. The character designs are nice and "cute," and resemble the actors well.
Unfortunately, the fun was short-lived. First of all, the characters would randomly get "stuck" in places. Usually, in past LEGO games, you could wiggle your character out eventually. Not the case with LEGO Pirates. Sometimes, I found I needed to restart the level because my character could not get unstuck. There was another particularly bad glitch in the "Organ Room" (from the stage, "The Dutchman's Secret") where I stepped on each of the colored panels to get to Davy Jones, only to have NOTHING happen once I completed the appropriate steps. I even checked the FAQ to make sure I did everything correctly. I restarted the level following the FAQ step-by-step to make sure I didn't screw up, and the same thing happened. Finally, on the third try, it worked. I did everything exactly the same, except for whatever reason, it worked on the third attempt.
Although those bugs were annoying, I could have lived with them except for the fact that the game kept freezing during gameplay. When other games have frozen on my PS3, usually I can press the PS button, get to the XMB main menu, and reset the game. However, as someone else pointed out, the game straight up FROZE my PS3. I had to hard reset each time this happened. This happened so many times to the point where some levels were downright unplayable and I couldn't even beat the game. I ended up returning it (thanks to Amazon's excellent return policy). I am an adult and found it frustrating; I can't imagine how frustrated a kid would feel.
Once again, it's obvious that not everyone got a bad disc and you might not have the same experience I did. Whether it's a bad batch, a compatibility issue, or lazy programming on the developer's behalf, if Traveller's Tales wants continued business and customer loyalty, they need to make sure that they do a better job with the quality control and release patches in a timely manner to address any possible bugs/glitches. The paying public should not be TT's beta testers.
I enjoy the sound effects and the movie'esque set creations such as tortuga and the black pearl, but i find these puzzles difficult for an adult, nevermind an adolescent. As this seems to be the case for all lego brand video games, a Teenager will have no problems, but younger kids may get stumped and ask you for help numerous times, so get ready to pick up the controller to help them out.
regardless, the game is fun and i'm half way through with my girlfriend (it causes many fights between us!) but its fun being Captain Jack Sparrow!
