Here is a game play video of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean. It's really great and I'm quite sure I'll buy this instead of LEGO Star Wars 3.

If you are interested in the differences between the home console version and the portable version check out these two videos.
Home Console: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcP6ONXZ4HE&feature=player...Portable: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPSBQNR27Kc
Its both the first few parts of the first level so there should not be too much to spoil here.
Home Console looks way better but the 3DS Version looks like it could be a great single player game. Local coop would have been great but tbh if i want to play a Lego game coop i would play it infront of the big screen.

I don't get why there's almost no excitement for this game?Lego Starwars seems to be the most popular. Lego potc comes out and everybody's all meh about it. I guess the thrill is gone now that they've made so many of these. It looks fun to me anyway.

The Wii version sucks. Basically the same game I played years ago with worse level design, less charm, and a poorer framerate. Glad I only rented it.
I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Lego Starwars on Wii wasn't perfect either. It has a choppy framerate sometimes. It's still tolerable though. None of these Lego games ever got a glowing review. IGN usually rates them between 7.5 / 8.0

A day late, but here is the IGN review:http://ds.ign.com/articles/116/1167645p1.htmlTo sum things up, they said it was nearly identical to the console versions and actually benefits from the 3D effect.

How can the Wii version be better than the 3DS when the 3DS graphics are rendered via shadings that are similar to those of home consoles like the XBOX while the Wii version isn't capable of that?

^ I think he means "looks better" in terms of gameplay, not graphics.

Oh, okay, I see now.
@supernin10do, LOL. It really would be a challenging experience to play a game sequence in which you actually only have 'one shot'. In real life that would be a complete nightmare, especially if your life depended on it like on the battlefield for instance.

Tired of Lego games? Maybe that's because you focus most of them on the console version.
Lego Pirates on the 3DS, when view in 3D, feels like playing actual Lego sets instead of playing a video game base on Lego sets.

The Game is just too easy. I know Lego Games are never that difficult but this one is a cake walk so far. Done 3 out of 4 movies in about 4 hours. Good thing is there is enough replay value for me since i want to find every last item and unlock all characters.The pirate duels are really nice to look at but get boring really fast.The 3D effect is nice and even helps a little.Sometimes there are slowdowns no idea why.Loadingtime is way too long for a handheld device with a cardtridge.Video sequences dont look that great. You notice the compression.
Still the game is fun to play and i dont mind the 30€ i have spend on it. Wish it would have the content of the home console version.
Think i would give the game a 7/10 so far.

So the Wii version is probably better right? Anyone know about how long that one lasts? I mean if you intend to collect everything.

As far as i know the home console version got 4 more levels. So it it should last a good 18+ hours if you want to try to get everything without codes. The portable version should last around 12 hours.

Yeah, the 3DS version isn't short, but it isn't huge either. I've completed absolutely everything save for the On Stranger Tides levels and I've played for around 10 hours. That's story mode, free play mode, and just messing around and collecting studs for about 75% of the game. (To be technical, it's actually 76.5% of the game.) So it's not lacking in content, but the Wii version is probably a little beefier.

@Toodles Are you waiting to see On Stranger Tides before you finish it? and how much do you actually enjoy the game? (Obviously you like it a decent amount if you've done absolutely everything so far) I'm considering getting it and I like to hear others' opinions of it.

Oh, man, that's a nice way of looking at it. I never thought of it like that.

That doesn't change the fact that it's the same old tired formula that has barely evolved from the first game. A pretty game will bore me just as quickly as an ugly one.
I hate the Wii version. It completely lacks the charm of the Star Wars games. And the level design sucks. >.<

Yeah, I am waiting until I see the film. The LEGO games don't convey the stories of the movies very clearly, so I'm not especially worried about spoilers. I just think those levels will be more fun to play after I've seen the film they're based on. So far, I'm greatly enjoying the game. As soon as I played LEGO Star Wars, one of the first things I thought was, "You know, Pirates of the Caribbean would make a great LEGO game." I'm so glad to see it finally happened!
I'm still a little disappointed that they didn't make the 3DS version a port of the Wii verison, as a number of sources implied it would be, but the experience still seems to be very similar. Honestly, the gameplay is just like any other LEGO game, really. In particular, it's very much like the DS version of LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. It's good fun, but it's a bit shorter and simpler than it's console counterparts. I got it because I'm primarily a handheld gamer, and as a fun 3DS platformer, it fits the bill nicely. The music kind of bugs me, though. There aren't that many tracks, so they repeat a lot, and they rarely match with the movies scenes they're paired with. The cannibal island music of the second movie plays during the maelstrom level of the third movie, for instance. That irks me, but it's still nice at least to have the actual film scores for background music.
So I definitely recommend it, but really only if you're already a big fan of Pirates or the LEGO series, I'd say. And it does seem the console version is probably superior in some ways. I'm planning to get the PC/Mac version when it comes out later this month so I can play both versions.

I'm sorta surprised the 3DS version isn't the exact same as the consoles. I guess that disproves all the talk about 3DS being more powerfull than Wii. If they still have to give you a half assed version on handhelds that's missing levels. I'll just stick with the Wii version thanks.
