Parent's Guide
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean has been designed to be played by kids. From the intelligent, but not too challenging puzzle based gameplay, to the slapstick humour, and even the fact that you can't properly die (getting "killed" just sees you break into pieces, and then suddenly reappear exactly where you were), everything comes together to make a game that kids and adults alike will love.

There's very little reading involved here, and everything that does involve reading is backed up with large, friendly icons that indicate almost exactly what you've got to do. For players as young as our recommended age of four, it'd probably be a good idea if you played along with them, at least to begin with, but they'll soon get the idea - and once they do, they'll be off.
Mature Content
Although it does involve guns, swords, and fights involving both, everything in the game is thoroughly tongue-in-cheek and kid friendly. Enemies simply flash red when hit, and crumple into their component parts when you've "killed" them - it's thoroughly family friendly fun.
Multiplayer
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean has been designed to be played in co-op - if you go through in single player, you're really missing out. Each of the levels is filled with puzzles which require two players to complete them - whether you both have to dangle on a wire that pulls a switch, or you simply have to fire your partner onto a different side of the level using a giant catapult, it's a game that requires you to work together - and playing with the computer controlling the second player just isn't the same. Pull up a friend, your other half, or your children and get stuck in, because LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is a game that anyone can play - and anyone will love.
