Sadly, the NDS version of Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest doesn't fair much better than its PSP counterpart, even though it had more potential.

In fact, it's a completely different game but does nothing to take advantage of the DS' unique features. The lower touch sensitive screen, for example, is only used as a stats and inventory screen with little touchy-feely friendliness.

And while gameplay involves all three main characters from the film it's tying-in with (Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann--as opposed to just Jack in the PSP version), there's little to differentiate each save for a few special skills. Otherwise, it's just your basic hack n' slash/crate-smash game level after level, fun in a distracting sort of way, but hardly immersive, hardly innovative, hardly on par with the blockbuster excitement of the movie.

So, also too bad and also a shameful waste of a really good effeminate drunkard.
