Following the lead of fellow European toy maker LEGO, Playmobil brings its line of plastic trinkets to the world of video games with a swashbuckling action-adventure in Playmobil Pirates. Gamers join One-Eye the pirate as he takes on 70 different missions spread across 16 Caribbean islands, recovering lost pieces of Blackbeard's treasure map and rescuing an imperiled damsel in the process. Standard platform levels find players collecting items, while maritime gameplay asks gamers to rescue marooned sailors and battle hostile soldiers and sea creatures.
Levels contain items that can be bartered for gold and used to purchase, repair, and upgrade pirate ships, while six different mini-games provide a break from the buccaneering. Fans of multiplayer action can square off against a friend in wireless single- or multi-cart battles. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game GuidePlaymobil Pirates, click here for more details
