You can say they're milking the franchise if you like, but most all of the installments are solid, stable and oodles 'o family-friendly fun for one or multiple players.
The Pirates of the Caribbean game has been canceled but if you're looking for solace, let it be known that TT Games is preparing its own patented Lego-fied version. The developer has already lent its lighthearted approach to the likes of Star Wars, Batman, Indiana Jones and Harry Potter, and now, it's time to go after yet another iconic movie franchise. Disney Interactive and TT Games have announced Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game , which is in development for all major platforms, including the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable. Scheduled for release in May 2011, it's set to hit store shelves at the same time the new movie, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," arrives in theaters. The Lego game will boast narrative elements, characters and locations from the first three film iterations, as well as "On Stranger Tides," so it should give fans everything they desire.
With 70 characters and 20 levels, along with that always popular co-op mode and the Freeplay mode (return to beaten levels and go through 'em again), this should be a great option for the younger age group.
