LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game throws you right into the heart of the action, introducing you to a colourful cast including Captain Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner in LEGO form.
The charming LEGO characters are by no means static figures; each one has cheeky facial expressions and delightful physical movements that make them a pleasure to watch. Even Captain Jack walks with the hilarious swagger that he possesses in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, and pirate Ragetti can take out his glass eye for fun. In combat, attacking a player with your sword won't draw any blood, but will dismantle your opponent into separate pieces, sending LEGO body parts flying everywhere in hilarious battle scenes.
Locations and settings from the films look fabulous in LEGO form, from the extravagant pirate ships with their cannons and crew, to the sun-kissed desert islands, complete with palm trees and exotic birds.
The game is divided into four adventures, one focussing on each of the films. Once you complete The Curse of the Black Pearl you can move on to any of the other three quests, which are all located in the game's hub - The Port. There are treasures to be found and puzzles to solve here, too - just watch out for the crocodiles.
