Pirates Of The Caribbean Trailer Swashes Its Own Buckle

Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada Of The Damned? Looks more like Fable On The High Seas to me.

That may sound mean, but I like Fable, and if this is Fable with tall ships and zombie pirates, then that's fine by me.

The game is an action RPG, with the emphasis on action, and while it's set in the PotC universe, it's got practically nothing to do with the events of the recent film trilogy.

It's due later this year for the 360, PS3 and PC.


    If they pull this together, I am flagging it as most fun game of the year. I agree, it looks a lot like Fable, but with a central direction that I think Fable lacks. Giving it that pirate skin might be just enough of a context that makes everything a bit tighter... that could be very seriously cool. I LIKE how it doesn't try to follow the story/characters, much more like the good Star Wars games have done. Use the feel of the universe but don't get bogged down in trying to replicate a movie in an interactive game.

    I also like Fable, mostly. It has issues, but in the end I think its a great platform that should be developed farther, with better writers at hand for the narrative bits.
