A closer look at Dead Man's Chest

The release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - on the PSP, at least - is less than two weeks away. Following the events of the movie, this piratical brawler will let players step into Captain Jack Sparrow's soggy boots and cross swords with cannibals and zombies as he fights for his soul.

To whet your appetite for the June 27 release, we've got new screens of the multiplayer mode (which we previewedhere), which lets players set sail and tear each other's ships apart with cannon fire.

If you prefer something a little more animated, hit the Movies tab and check out our video for a close look at Sparrow slicing up some fools and swinging around the 3D levels, Tomb Raider style.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
