LEGO: Pirates Of The Caribbean Announced

Curse of the block pearl?

Those of you who just can’t get enough of the LEGO franchise, and have played through LEGO Star Wars, Batman, Indiana Jones and Harry Potter, will be pleased to hear that Pirates Of The Caribbean is next in line for a block-over.

With 20 levels and 70 playable characters, the game aims to:

“Re-create the action, adventure and memorable moments of the Pirates of the Caribbean mythology in LEGO form.  With so many wonderful characters, in such amazing environments, our teams are having great fun – and we’re sure that players will, too.”

Whilst I was a big fan of the original film, its follow-ups left me feeling a little cold.  However, the LEGO games are well known for their solid gameplay mechanics, and great humour, so I’ll be keeping an eye on this.

    Is “Solid gameplay mechanics” a nice way of saying “They’re all the bloody same” ? Hm.. Still sell billions tho.

      I could say the same thing about Call of Duty, Fifa, Assassins Creed and even games like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro (The originals). Each one of these games brings in new ideas and level designs every sequel, but they overall stay the same.

      I agree but if the formula is great why change it.

    I passed up on Batman and Indiana Jones, but I might pick this up, just for the drop-in drop-out play.

      Both Indys were crap, Batman was better, Harry Potter is actually pretty good.

      Sadly this coming from someone old enough to know better ;-) It’s the co-op that keeps me hooked too.

    When you say ‘next in line’ do you mean after LEGO Star Wars III Clone Wars ?

    I wonder if the plot will still be as enormously convoluted just like the 2nd and 3rd films.

    This could be pretty good, as there are plenty of recognisable characters to play as from the films. Saying that, Batman has plenty of easily recognisable characters but definitely felt as though it was missing something.

    Given how much the Mrs loved the Harry Potter game I can imagine we will end up getting this. The Harry Potter game however had the aspect of spells to implement into the game play, which made it pretty fun and different enough from the other LEGO releases. I’m currently coming up empty as to what the PotC one could offer in this respect though.

      Absolutley, Lego Harry Potter really is about the only PS3 game my better half will play, bar the obligatory Friday night Singstar.
