Walking a mile in Keith's shoes
"The thing with Keith is, he doesn't like things to be too new or obvious. Sometimes you have to leave clothes about the place for him to find, as opposed to just offering them to him." - NY Daily News
With the upcoming release of the sequel to the popular 2003 movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Buena Vista Games is giving us a title for the PSP, DS and GBA based on the new film. Although it will follow the movie script fairly closely, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is also going to give players some room for exploring other parts of Jack Sparrow's adventure that are not seen in the screen version. And, the game is scheduled for release about one week before the movie hits theaters.
Developed by Amaze Entertainment, Dead Man's Chest is a third-person action/adventure game that will allow gamers to play Jack Sparrow through the storyline set out in the new movie. Although we have no specific details about the script at this time, if it is anything like the original film it should turn out to be quite exciting. The single player game is set to give players a chance at the full pirate experience, from the disloyalty to the sword dueling and everything in between.
In the game, Jack will be capable of traditional strength-based attacks using swords, guns, knives and other tools of the trade. The true experience kicks in when players fight dirty however; on top of these attacks, Jack is also capable of head-butting opponents and kicking them in the nether region (oh, my groin!). Hey, nobody said fighting had to be fair!
The most exciting feature of the single player game, however, is the ability to play through certain events that do no actually appear in the movie. This means that gamers will get the exclusive opportunity to find out what Captain Sparrow does while he is not shown on screen. Hopefully, this will allow for a less-scripted feeling in the single-player campaign and will enhance the storyline. - POTC Web
