LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Wii Game Review

    LEGO® Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game is an action adventure game that brings the Pirates of the Caribbean world and all its colorful characters to life in LEGO Brick form. Players will experience all the memorable scenes from the first three films, as well as those in the upcoming fourth film, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," in the humorous and quirky LEGO Video Games style.

Product Features
  • Exploration: Players will explore familiar locations filled with interactive LEGO Objects and encounter more than 70 memorable and new characters while making their way through more than 20 levels
  • Combat: The LEGO Caribbean is full of danger! Intense sword fighting moves give the LEGO Mini figure a brand new pirate flavor
  • Unforgettable Cut Scenes: Some of your favorite scenes from the Pirates of the Caribbean films are re-rendered with LEGO Mini figures, in the humorous style synonymous with LEGO Video Games
  • Puzzles: Players will need all their pirate cunning to find the hidden LEGO Treasures and discover the game's many secrets
  • Two-Player Co-op: Players can join a friend or family member in the same room for two-player "drop-in/drop-out" cooperative action
  • Freeplay: Building a collection of characters throughout the game, players can then use their distinctive abilities to gain access to previously unavailable areas
     Jayden and I tried to play this game together.  It takes both the regular remote controller and the Nunchuk together.  The introduction was really long and Jayden was ready to turn the game off before it started.  But it finally started and to be honest we were not sure what to do.  There are minimal instructions and it did not seem like a common sense game.  It was dark and I think it even scared Jayden a little.  When we couldn't figure it out quickly then we decided to try a new game.  I didn't want to frustrate him any more.  I have been told it is a really fun game once you figure it out.  But so far it just doesn't make much sense to us.  The game is again out of Jayden's age range 10+, so I am not surprised he is frustrated with it.  I am sure as he gets older and understands it more he will enjoy this game.  

Buy it:  Lego Pirates of the Caribbean Wii Video Game on Amazon for $39.99

    1. I am totally adicted to these Lego Games for the Wii! We have not tried the Pirates version yet, but are big fans of the Harry Potter, the Star Wars, the Batman, and the Indianna Jones versions :)
