Games Reviews: Playmobil Pirates


Format DS

Publisher Mindscape

You might think that Lego has cornered the market in games starring plastic figurines, but Playmobil is obviously looking for a piece of the action. Playmobil Pirates is a mission-based adventure aimed at younger players. From boat buying to betting, exploring to rescuing a mermaid princess, the action is pleasingly varied, although the difficulty does vary wildly in places.
