LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
The boys (aged ten and 11) loved LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean – they played solidly for nearly two hours without it sending them hyper! Both remarked on the excellent quality of the graphics and animations. What they really liked was that they could hang around on different levels enjoying themselves in a companionable fashion.
I noticed that they were able to really play together on this without falling out – there was a lot of laughter. Though it was obviously themed around the films you didn't need to have a deep knowledge of them; the boys just plunged straight in.
Matt thought it was the best game he had ever played and I would agree from a dad's point of view as it seemed to deliver a satisfaction that was more healthy than usual. Somehow it seemed to be more integrated as play than the usual bells and whistles. I know that he will ask for LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean as a present and I'll gladly give it to him.
