Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow review

  • Brilliant story
  • Nice variety of attacks
  • Mostly stellar voice acting
  • Crummy visuals
  • Stupid computer-controlled everything
  • Restarting levels is no fun

It doesn't help matters much that the game isn't too pretty even by PS2 standards, and the animation tends to get choppy as the action heats up. And while Johnny Depp turns in a great performance as Jack Sparrow, it's not enough to distract from his expressionless, barely moving face.

The Legend of Jack Sparrow is bogged down by a host of flaws, but in the end, it's still a passably entertaining sword-brawler. Its relatively short run-time, clever script and Johnny Depp voice-over are enough to justify a rental for fans of the film, but we can't imagine shelling out $40 to play this.
