ANOTHER local co-op only game. What is the POINT? If is it not online, then forget it.

@tybearmvt - yes I realize that you could also go underwater in the other games, but it was explained to me that this is the first time there is actual underwater exploration and levels, instead of limited underwater segments and missions.

Wait, the "first Lego game where you can go under water."? You could in Lego Batman, it just was not used much. FAIL

Great preview Soph! I have only played the Batman Lego game for a laugh and was really surprised at how fun it was. I look like Jack Sparrow so I can see this game getting bought for me as a silly joke. So it best be good as I'll be forced to play it on drunken friday nights! haha! ARRRR

Good looking game & should be a rather lengthy affair.

@sophia I get your point that it should be piracy but if you talk about consoles. Then I know people who own consoles do not run original unpirated games, rather then they go for a hack for the console and then make them able to run pirated PS3 & Xbox games. And 9 out of 10 play game liike this.

@devrindare - I'm sure they each have their own reasons, but personally I think they might be moving away from PC is because of the high piracy rate. It makes sense to me, if you're going to be putting so much effort into a game that people are just going to steal, then they're going to release it on a platform where people will pay to play.

@sophia thanks for your reply. could you tell me what are the major reasons behind most of the game developers release games for Xbox and PS3, even those who previously release games for PC. Even they cancel games for PC and release for consoles for ex. Alan Wake and Gears of War

@devrindare - a lot of companies have their own forums where you can offer feedback. I find that more companies out there now are willing to listen to the community. You could always try that? It would be more direct than having them come to our site to check the responses.

@sophia I really like your presentations and reviews. I think Gamespot should make game company page where we can put our response to tell the gaming companies what we think related to the game before and after the release of the game. If it is done, then its a biggest favor to me.

@jarofdirt882 - no I hear you, and I get your point. Seeing that this is Lego, they tend to bend the rules a little anyway with the content. @disneyrich2001 - thanks :)

@Sophia It just really bugs me cos I'm such a big Pirates fan. And it is really a big difference... your hearts desire tends to be one person or thing(ilke Elizabeth's heart's desire would be Will). What you want can change in a moment (as seen in DMC when Jack "does not know what he wants" when talking to Tia Dalma, she would know since she gave it to him, but how it then points at Lizzie later on, cos he wants her. And again focusing on Lizzie, her heart's desire is Will, but she wants to find a way to help Will, that being the Chest). I didn't know that's how the developers had described it. I know Disney said it during pre DMC release, but they did later correct it. Again, it's just cos I'm such a big Pirates fan, I'd just hoped that they'd get all the facts right (especially ones that have been over by both Disney and the writers).

@jarofdirt882 - That's how it was described in the game by the developers. Is it seriously that big of a difference? This is a Lego game, it always has its own take on a franchise.

The woman lost me at the compass points to Jack's "heart's desire". Not true... It points to "whatever the holder wants". Big difference. Please get your Pirates facts right please. But the underwater sounds like a cool addition.
