Pirates of the caribbean rocks!!

The lowdown:

Movie tie-ins don't have the best of reputations in the video games world but this does go to some effort to try and repeat the easy charm and constant action of Dead Man's Chest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pirates of the Carribean - PSP Game
Okay, with the lack of Action/Adventure games available for the PSP i was hopeful for this one.

On first impressions i was quite impressed, nice graphics and presentation, simple control system and good variation of levels.

Single Player you play Captain Jack Sparrow in a third person action/adventure game, lots of jumping around and a few puzzles,...

Pirates of the caribbean rocks!!

The lowdown:

Movie tie-ins don't have the best of reputations in the video games world but this does go to some effort to try and repeat the easy charm and constant action of Dead Man's Chest. The game looks great at least, with Jack's peculiar swagger replicated perfectly, and the movie soundtrack is superb. There's also some neat puzzles to solve in the game, usually revolving around blowing up large portions of the scenery with exploding barrels. The combat though is a might too simplistic for its own good, with a strictly regimented way of fighting the three different styles of enemy.

Most exciting moment:

The best bit by far in the game is the completely separate multiplayer mode where you get to control your own pirate ship on the high seas. It's a great little action game and with four friends a lot more fun than most of the single player game.

Since you ask:

Dead Man's Chest is available on all three portable formats but not on the home consoles or PC. Instead the PS2 and PC has a Pirates of the Caribbean game named The Legend of Jack Sparrow, which is more of a prequel to the new movie.

The bottom line:

A good movie tie-in but only an average game.

Manufacturer's Description

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest lets gamers embark on a high-seas adventure that parallels events from the hit movie. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is a swashbuckling third-person action/adventure video game in which players engage in action that reflects the cunning world of the film - with an abundance of disloyalty, humour and revenge.

The PSP system version offers gamers the opportunity to control Captain Jack Sparrow. Players can utilize strength and speed attacks to take down enemies as well as "dirty moves," typical of pirate fighting. The PSP system version also features multiplayer ship battles for up to four players via local wireless. Ship battle gameplay contains 10 maps and offers GameShare mode (only one game disc needed to play on multiple PSP systems).

3.0 out of 5 stars Pirates of the Carribean - PSP Game, 13 July 2006

This review is from: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (PSP) (Video Game)
Okay, with the lack of Action/Adventure games available for the PSP i was hopeful for this one.

On first impressions i was quite impressed, nice graphics and presentation, simple control system and good variation of levels.

Single Player you play Captain Jack Sparrow in a third person action/adventure game, lots of jumping around and a few puzzles, not too far of Prince of Persia/Tomb Raider, and of course lots of combat which is the main bulk of the game, the sword soon becomes repetitve with not many Combos available and their only being 4/5 different types of enemy (note there are more, but they only look different, but attack/are defeated in the same way.)

Levels are fairly long and the re-spawn points are balanced fairly, it's good to pick up and play and is generally good fun.

There are also bonus 'treasure' arenas where you fight lots of baddies and are rewarded with special moves to use in the main game.

You can also pick up 'once only' secondary weapons, such as bottles, knives and guns which come in handy when faced with a lot of enemies!!

The camera can get a little messy at times and the whole game is fairly short, but not a bad game for a movie tie-in.

the other good thing is the multiplayer (game share as well) is a totally different game, which is a pirate-ship battle, which to be honest is rubbish!! after a couple of battles it all gets a bit boring, pick your ship, shoot the other ships, board/battle the other ships sink them and...repeat!

but all in all not a bad game, probably worth picking up second-hand as its a bit short!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good, 11 July 2006

= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (PSP) (Video Game)
This game is quite good for a PSP game, and certainly better than a lot of games ive played. Its fun and Jack Sparrow walks and fights just as you'd expect, and has some hilarious things to say. The game looks pretty good and the fighting system is fun, once you get the hang of it.

The only thing is that te levels get a little repetitive and can get pretty boring, especially when you cant save it. SHort and sweet, but fun! Well worth taking a look for fans of the series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Short Lifespan - Poor Ending - Only Multiplayer saves this game!!!, 20 July 2006
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (PSP) (Video Game)
Not a full waste of effort to buy and play, but steer clear if you are a hardcore gamer as you'll dust this game in a day, as the levels are simple and any puzzles 'if you can call them puzzles?' are childsplay. Other then trying to get 100% in completions by going back in the levels to find missed maps,'I've heard most end with a 87% game complete result', there isn't much left to do, unless you know someone with the game and do multiplayer or gameshare on their PSP. NOTE - You can only play the ship game in multiplayer! - But it is the only saving grace after the single player story mode ends so badly, you don't even get a decent fight with Jones! If you want lifespan this ain't the game to buy, but it's worth a play at the least!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Fun, 26 Sep 2006
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (PSP) (Video Game)
I got this game for my birthday and i found it amazingaly fun, i quickly found the saving annoying becuase you can only save at the end of each mission and each mission is fairly long, i really enjoyed this game but the last mission rather disapointed me becuase you dont even fight davy jones but fighting the kraken is good fun but alot of the time getting through to the next part of the level is simply pulling some levers in the right order

This game is definataly worht the buy and the play and will sufice for a little while.
