Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man’s Chest

 

The bulk of the game is going to be spent in the sidescrolling parts, fighting off various wildlife, British and the British-controlled wildlife. The nature of the game will be familiar to anyone who's played videogames in the last twenty years....

Good Music ; Free-roaming piracy is fun ; Tries pretty hard to be very in-depth

but most of the in-depth parts can easily be skipped ; Most enemies can hurt you no matter what you do ; Jerky camera combined with sudden starts and stops can make you queasy

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest tries to do a lot of things and wind up not doing very many of them well. It's a good effort but you can find a lot of better titles out there.

Pirates of the Caribbean is a big license right now. What could've just lived on as a ride in the Walt Disney Land theme park has instead engrossed into one of the better cinematic series, starting with 2003's Curse of the Black Pearl and moving on to...

Do you really need a review to tell you not to buy this game?

Almost-cool ship battles

Simply not fun ; Terrible play control ; Grainy graphics and grating music

What I’m getting at, as if it were any surprise, is that Pirates of the Caribbean is exactly like every other cookie-cutter movie/cartoon-licensed platformer. Sadly, our beloved GBA is home to more than its fair share of these “games”. Do your part...
