Tidy beans smile

I've taken the admin lock off the 'write a review' page, so you moderators can just write them into there now if you like - make sure you save it though, as i'm not guaranteeing that it won't get deleted by accident when i work on it...

Also, bear in mind that you won't be able to edit it after you submit the page, at least until i've written the edit page.

The submit page is here and the submitted review will be http://www.pspflashgaming.com/2-games/2 … eviewid=33 (32 is the last one i wrote, and the reviewid at the end of the link goes up once for each review)

Have a play and see if you can find any bugs ninja

Re: [Review] Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Ok, you can put in scores with one decimal place now, eg 7.5 smile
Also, I noticed that the majority of reviews have only one paragraph per section, so I changed the code so that you don't need to put in any <p></p> tags... (unless you want a new paragraph, in which case put </p><p>
I'll write a guide with proper instructions when it's all done...

Re: [Review] Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

All html works, right? I found out that the cooler on my graphics card died. But I temporarily fixed it by placing my big ass anti-heatwave 3000(tm) fan against it. I's clever;) although I'm probably going to get a cold from using the computer now big_smile 
Anywho, this means my computer is working again so I can finally work on reviews.

Wicked big_smile
For the reviews - all html code works - when you write in the main text boxes, it just sticks whatever you write into <p>your text here</p> tags, so as long as the html you use is valid (ie nest properly, don't put another <p> in before closing the tag etc), then feel free to stick as much as you like in.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006)
http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d60/Soul_Of_Darkness/1521.jpg
Publisher: Buena Vista Games
Developer: Amaze
Release date: June 2006

This game is based on the movie, and the game captures it's spirit. You play as captain Jack Sparrow, and your goal is to clear a bunch of missions, kill a bunch of enemies, climb a bunch of ropes and solve a bunch of puzzles.

Gameplay:
Although the most of the locations are different and interesting, and there's a variety of enemies, the gameplay is pretty plain. You run around the level, fight enemies (i'll explain the battle system later), push switches, fight more folks, dodge falling stones, fight bad guys, explode barrels of powder, fight, collect map pieces, and fight more enemies.

Battle System looks pretty interesting at the begining, but you'll get sick of it even in the first level. When you're close to an enemy, a button combination appears upon his head. You need to quickly press these buttons to kill him, otherwise - he'll attack you. There are only 3 enemy types:
- Stupid - easy to defeat, only one weapon.
- Normal - 2 weapons and some acrobatical moves.
- Bullies - one hit from them, and you'll find yourself flying away.

Another thing worth mentioning is multiplayer - naval battles. You pick up a ship, a flag, and dive into the fun, fast-paced action! The gold you get from the single player mode can be used here to upgrade your ship. And you don't need multiple copies of the game - "Pirates" have gamesharing!

One thing i hated, is that there's no indication of what is collected in a particular level - You'll have to replay every level to search for the missing map parts.

Sound:
Nothing unusual - the main theme of the movie plays pretty much all the time, enemies scream, Jack has some talking lines in the cutscenes - it's not Johnny Depp - just a lousy fake sad Sounds OK, but still not the same.

Control:
Nothing unusual here either - standard action/adventure cotrols, though maybe too responsive - a little touch of the analog stick and Jack's meters away. That spoils the platforming part of the game, and you die pretty often. It's no big deal - there are no "lives" - only "health", and if you die, you'll be immedietly transported to the nearest savepoint, but duying 10 times in one place is pretty annoying.

Overall:
If you're looking for an interesting game to play for a couple of days and with a great multiplayer and atmosphere, this game is for you.

Gameplay: 6.5/10
Graphics: 5/10
Sound: 7/10
Controll: 6.5/10
Originality: 7/10

Overall: 7

It's a lot O_O

You know I tried the same thing with Untold Legends, but then I realized it stretches the boxes of the review.... Maybe you should cut some out :s

I think he means that Pirates of the Caribbean, if so, it would be illegal, so no-one can tell you.
