LEGO: Pirates Of The Caribbean Announced

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.

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

    • I second this.

    • 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.

  2. 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.

      • ive had the 1st indy, sitting, still wrapped for just over a year. played batman for 5 mins, may give indianna jones a go….. one day

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

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

  5. ill be getting this as the lego gomes are one of the few that my wife willingly plays

  6. Is it the first film … or all three?

    • all FOUR.

      Next year the forth movie is coming.

      • ok thanks … or all four?

  7. Great, another game that my 7 year old son will beg me to get and I’ll end up having to complete just to get those trophies. lol

  8. 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.

  9. sounds cool… interesting to see if its anything to pick up…

  10. 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.
