Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of TT Games' LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game. The action adventure title allows players to enjoy memorable moments from the popular Disney films using LEGO minifigures and items, in a gaming style made popular in previous TT Games LEGO titles.

Here's an excerpt:

The LEGO figures, for the most part, resemble the characters from the movie they portray. You can generally figure out who is who just by looking, although a few were difficult. Jack Sparrow’s narrow face doesn’t transfer well to the broad round face of a LEGO piece. Elizabeth and her father look pretty much alike, except for the color of their hair. But knowing who is who isn’t critical to succeeding in this game. You do need to remember what abilities each character has.

The game makes great use of the music from the movies, both as background music and as part of the animation sequences. The use of this music adds a lot to the game, especially for fans like myself. As mentioned, the LEGO characters don’t speak, but they do make noises and one can generally interpret the meaning of the sound. There are also nicely applied environment sounds, such as seagull calls, the creaking of the boat’s wood and tack, flapping of the canvas, and a lot more. All of this added a lot of realism to this very unrealistic LEGO animation!
