My verdict: This wasn't my favorite of the LEGO games, but I still liked it better than LEGO Batman. Things I liked:
- The way the Jack Sparrow character runs is perfect
- The puppet shows that transition between scenes are kind of fun
- You can actually ride the ships you build out of the minikits
- You can change to any character in your repertoire during free play, not just the ten or so you happen to start out with
- You sometimes had to shoot cannons to progress
- Using Jack's compass to locate hidden objects was a fun idea
- All characters turn to undead when they pick up an Aztec gold piece
- The animations deviate from the original story a lot more than the other LEGO games have
- There were only five levels per movie; I would've liked more
- There weren't any bonus missions
- The game glitched a few times, forcing me to restart a level so that I could finish it
- I still don't like being tricked into starting the next part of a level without the ability to go back
- The final level is called 'The Ride' and it pretends to be the Disneyland ride—I wish it had been the Disneyland ride instead of just a rehashing of the major villains

 Even though it's my least favorite of the LEGO franchise, I still plan on owning its sequel, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.
