The LEGO games are already appreciated by the fans of Batman, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, or Luke Skywalker. Another title of Travellerís Tales, a British studio, was developed for the fans of sea adventures of Jack Sparrow and his companions from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. Disney Interactive, the publisher of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean for PC, X360 and etc., also made sure that the production launches at the same time as the fourth installments of the mega-production starring Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Plot

Plot-wise, the game is not limited to what was shown in the abovementioned movie and covers the events, character, and themes known from the previous installments of the Pirates of the Caribbean series. The developers of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean made an effort not only to faithfully transfer various film sceneries into a ďbrick realityĒ but also the unique sense of humor and the gripping action. In the game, there are over 70 characters known from the movie series, naturally including Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, and Elizabeth Swann.

Mechanics

Similarly to other installments of the LEGO series, the gameplay of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is divided into stages. In total, the players have to beat over 20 varied levels. They are full of arcade elements and simple logic puzzles. There is no shortage of fantasy monster to slay and treasures of find, either. Each level tells of a different fragment of a film and is enriched with at least two movie cutscenes.

Most of the solutions used in Pirates of the Caribbean have their counterparts in other productions of the LEGO series. The few differences include the possibility of playing in the open world, thanks to which all locations can be visited multiple times to, for example, find hidden items, among other things. Every available character have their specific uses, meaning that their unique skills allow us to reach places unreachable to others.

Game modes

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean for PC, X360 and etc. offers game modes for a single or for two players, while the second person can participate with the use of a dynamically split screen.

Technical aspects

However, the developer managed to enhance the camera operation and introduce changes in the lighting system which positively influenced the overall graphics quality.
