Game Info :
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow is a fast paced action-adventure game featuring a humorous retelling of events from the first movie told from the perspective of Captain Jack Sparrow himself. The player makes headway by using his sword, solving puzzles, and taking advantage of the environment. Learn new moves and combos as the game progresses for even more spectacular and deadly attacks during combat.

Jack Sparrow (Captain Jack Sparrow) is back on the big screen and in a new game. The first "Pirates of the Caribbean" game was originally set-up by developer Akella to sell as Sea Dogs II. Savvy marketing guys saw the opportunity to tie-in a pirate game with the pirate movie. It did not have any real references to Capt. Sparrow or the movie but along with characters to quest, it did give the player control of sailing ships and naval battles. This second POTC game, titled The Legend of Jack Sparrow (that's Captain Jack Sparrow) is the opposite: you have Capt. Sparrow (voiced to varying degrees of effectiveness by actor Johnny Depp) and his friends Elizabeth and Will Turner (voiced by other actors) to play in a role-playing quest that chronicles other adventures not covered in the two films. But other than some cutscenes and a few swordfights on the deck, no there are sailing ships in this game, savvy?

The quest begins as Sparrow and Turner search for a rare artifact. Their adventures cross some of the storylines from the original movie with new locales in villages, forts, caves, mines, and jungles. Each episode involves a lot of swordfighting with a steady flood of AI ghouls, enemy pirates, incontinent Spaniards, and redcoats. After a while, constantly clicking the mouse to whack generic opponents gets old and repetitive. There are instances where you get to shoot a cannon, but mostly you swordfight.

Your fighting skills consist of a few basic sword thrusts and combos, along with Jack's "grog bombs" and hatchets (although I spent hours trying to figure out which key throws the axes). Jack has a special tactic--he spits rum on the blade of his sword and sets it on fire. Looks pretty and takes out opponents with one swing. Speaking of looking pretty, the game graphics are adequate and the cut scenes worth mentioning.
