An OK Hack N Slash based on one of the best movies of modern days.
Almost everything about the game is OK, except that the story is a bit confusing, when does the game take place? Jack and Will are out treasure-hunting, searching for some golden skull (?), but are betrayed by two companions from their crew. The next thing they know is that they are going to be executed. So when they are standing in front of the crowd Jack tell them/makes up the stories of his and Wills adventures that led them to this point. The missions is Jack's lies about the events in the first movie (that I get), and he even tell two stories within the stories about earlier adventures, but then he put Will or Elizabeth by his side (just because he can). What I don't get is when the present main story takes place, after The Curse of The Black Pearl, but impossible before Dead Man's Chest, maybe after At World's End, but unlikely. So I have no Idea when the story took place. That is a bit frustrating. The best thing about the game is to be able to play as everybody's favorite-pirate Jack Sparrow, and the fact that this is the only video-game so far Depp has lend-ed his voice to. That's very cool. The game is a bit to short and the ending makes me hope for an sequel, because if there is'nt one the ending sucks! Overall a good but short Hack N Slash.
