Lego Pirates of the Caribbean launches this weekend, and it promises to be an hilarious swashbuckling adventure for all concerned. Mini Gamers takes a look at the new features we can expect in this latest title from the ever-popular Lego Games series.
As well as featuring over seventy different playable characters, the game will include storylines from all four blockbuster films, including the latest release, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Furthermore, The 3DS version will also utilise the special StreetPass function in order to activate two-player sword fights between gamers' consoles.
The gameplay will follow the generics from past Lego games, including the collection of silver and gold gaming studs and the need to swap between different characters in order to harness their unique special abilities to unlock new areas of the game.
The main character abilities are as follows:
Captain Jack - uses his compass to point the way to the next level or to whatever his heart desires.
Will Turner - Can throw axes at certain types of targets within the game.
Elizabeth Swan - Can jump higher than the other two characters and so can reach places that would be otherwise out of bounds.
Zombies [unlockable character] require no use of Oxygen when swimming and can therefore explore ocean depths more fully.
The new HUB for this game will be Port Royal. The hub will open up into different areas as players progress through the game. A lot of time and effort has been put in to the creation of this game. There is a total of twenty different levels per each Story Mode, which means a lot of items to find and characters to unlock.
Overall, this is shaping up to be a very interesting game. Fans of the Lego series are bound to enjoy this title and fans of the film will enjoy the hilarious cutscenes.
This is definitely one to add to the games collection. If you still haven't made up your mind though, this trailer should help you to decide:
Lego Pirates of the Caribbean will be available to buy from Friday the 13th May 2011.
