Pirates of the Caribbean

An action-adventure game with RPG features. It is based on Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Except for the title and the presence of single motives (most of all the Black Pearl ship), the game has little in common with the movie. It was at first developed as sequel to Sea Dogs, another similar game created by studio Akella, but the popularity of the movie caused the change of the title. In the game the player assumes the role of an independent ship captain who is caught in the middle of a conflict between 17th century sea empires: England and France. The protagonist must gather crew and then complete a series of mission for the selected empire. As time passes, the protagonist gathers experience, becomes a better captain and warrior. Sea battles, including using artillery, boarding and participating in melee combat, are important part of the game.

This game was at first developed as an official sequel to Sea Dogs, but after acquiring the license a decision to change the title was made. Due to that, the player completes tasks that werenít presented in the movie. Xbox version is very similar to PC version. The only greater difference can be found in controls, which was created with Microsoft console in mind (which leaves PC users at a slight disadvantage).
