Best LEGOBy El_Bobbo (3 reviews) from Darlington , 23 May 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]If you like the other LEGO games you'll love this. The animation & characters are amazing, and playing it actually helped me understand the confusing 2&3rd films better.
Loads of collectables should keep you busy for a while and a good fun 1k as most LEGO games are.
The only problem with LEGO games is that they're all the similar. But the fact that they're all brilliant fun means thats not a problem.
Bring on the next one!

Good single-player campaign, but that's all unfortunately.By SuperScouse07 (16 reviews) from Liverpool , 10 Sep 2012I decided to give this game a rent as I am a big fan of the Lego franchise and had previously rented games such as Lego Rock Band, Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones. I enjoyed playing this game in moderation and it held up well to the storyline of the films, however after a couple of story missions I found it to become very repetitive to play. Often I would have to switch to another game as I could not play this game for long periods of time. I often became bored at the simplicity of just breaking objects, collecting studs and killing a few enemies here and there. Also, I found the achievements to be a bit frustrating as in order to unlock the majority of them, I had to re-play the missions for a second time. However, there was nothing new there to keep me motivated to play through it a second time. Overall, this game is a decent rent for the weekend, but nothing more than that.
A must rentBy iamgamer (2 reviews) from Sheffield , 08 Sep 2012A definite rental, has to be my favourite game of the lego series. Has all the charm of a lego game with the brilliance of the Pirates of the Caribbean universe. The character models are by far the best of any lego game and the chapters of each story really capture the main events of each of the films. Aside from the fun factor of the game the 1000g is easy to pick up also making this title a must for any lego fan or achievement hunter.
I would recommend this to any gamer young or old as the magic of the game is always at the forefront of the gameplay.
Good gameBy a customer , 03 Aug 2012Was really good, my girlfriend and I spent the weekend playing and having a great time. It is a great game for all ages much like the other Lego games, we loved both this and Lego Batman they're excellent no matter what talent you are and good if you would like to play together.
LEGO Ahoy!By xGreenLantern92x (17 reviews) , 04 Jun 2012Anyone will be charmed by this game, with the classic LEGO humor being present in all features from the way the levels progress to the wackiness of the cut-scenes. The co-op feature I feel makes this game a lot more enjoyable. Playing through the story is fine, but from experience I know that I'm going to have to play through the game again in the Free Play mode, and having to play through and find the final mini-kit in a level for the fourth time when you have no idea where it is, is a lot more bearable when you have another person there with you, that essentially takes away the annoyance of not being able to find it and replaces it with fun.
I found this a lot easier than some LEGO titles I've played, especially Gamerscore wise, in fact probably the easiest I've played so far. The Red Hats (Red Bricks in all other LEGO games) which unlock the Extras such as stud multipliers, extra characters and invincibility, are all found in the hub world instead of in each individual level which made accessing the cheats much easier, which from a Gamerscore hunters point of view is nice but I can see that for most it is somewhat pointless thing to do (as they say, cheaters never prosper). The Mini-kits were also quite easy to find compared with the LEGO Star Wars and Batman titles which require some very serious sleuthing to find, even with the Mini-kit Detector Extra turned on.
The game sticks true to the films plots, incorporating pivotal scenes in each of the four installments, from hunting for crew members in the port of Tortuga to fighting Davy Jones on top of the Flying Dutchman. I myself have only seen two of the four films but I did not find that to be a problem.
Whether you're a fan or not, I would highly recommend this title to rent, perhaps even buy if you can find it for around twenty quid. This gem is another shining example of how little LEGO people can make video games a more fun experience for all.
another fun lego game.By Mandalorian (25 reviews) from Manchester , 08 May 2012If you have ever played a lego game before then you arnt in for many surprises but still this is a very fun game and the pirates series works really well with lego.
The characters and story are great and they really captured what it is that makes jack, jack.
The 2 player split screen is clever in the way that it joins and splits and tilts depending on where each player is but it can be a bit disorienting at times but you can change it to classic split screen if you want.
Its definitly worth a rent for a relaxing slow paced bit of fun
