Score so far: 4/5
Platform Reviewed: PS3
Lego games tend to be all built on the same formula that has sold very well for the franchise. With platforming, simple combat, puzzles, and tons of unlockables and collecting, Lego games are fun for all age groups. Lego: Pirates of the
Caribbean doesn’t stray away from this formula but still introduces another fun Lego game that spans the story of the 3 Disney movies. So Far I’ve played about 4 hours worth of the game and these are my first impressions.
From the very opening cinematics, you see the retelling of the movies with a lego twist. Even the most “intense” moments in the movies are kept light hearted and have a bit of humor. Graphics are beautifully crafted while keeping the lighthearted appearance of being a Lego world. Character animations are top notch from the sword fighting to Captain Jack’s movements and give a real since of life to the Lego characters.
