Lego Pirates of the Caribbean on Wii 3DS

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is a Adventuring game available on the Wii 3DS. It can be played in Singleplayer Thirdperson modes.

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.


Lego: Pirates of the Caribbean

Lego: Pirates of the Caribbean is another strongly themed adventure from the widely loved Lego platform games. Although the marketing is obviously a big driver here - with the game releasing alongside the new Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides film - the quality of the previous games should ensure this is more than a derivative movie tie-in.

Disney and TT Games have just announced their new Lego video game Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. Although the first of their Lego games to be published by Disney, TT Games have a considerable pedigree with their previous Lego titles.

Domestic Gamer review Thu, 07 Jul 2011

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean Wii is a surprisingly good retelling of all four films. Legoisation is not only cute, but helped me enjoy and understand these games that my kids pour hours into.

I'll admit that I'm a bit of a Pirates fan, not the old fashioned eye-patch wearing grogg swilling kind I hope you understand, it's more the Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom modern day rock and roll pirate for me.

Teen Gamer review Tue, 17 May 2011

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game bristles with high seas imagination. But beyond the portability of this visually impressive version, there are still a few holes in what has become the second tier of Lego games next to the Wii, 360 and PS3 versions. Long story short, bring back multiplayer.

The Lego videogames are such a great combination. I still like playing Lego now and again with my younger sister, and they always pick such cool themes to base the games on. I've played through quite a few of them with my friends. Everyone gets involved pointing out what we need to do next and wrestling the controller from whoever isn't getting it.

Junior Gamer review Tue, 17 May 2011

Pirates of the Caribbean DS crams in a huge amount of content into the little DS. Even with all this though, the lack of multiplayer, some special abilities and reduced levels means that this feels second rate next to the Wii. Here's what our junior gamer made of it...

I'm not very keen on the insides of bodies, they make me go all wobbly. So I've not seen the Pirates of the Caribbean films, because it has lots of open-body bits in it and ghosts as well. Also, I'm not usually allowed to watch films that are a 12.
