I think that his game perfectly captures the movies and is great for all fans of Pirates of the Caribbean. Violence is a small issue.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 6+

great for kids over 7

It's good and does not cause crazy behavior, if your kid has played an e10+ rated game they can defintoily handle it

Is It Any Good?

The plot of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END is even more confusing than the movies and will likely be incomprehensible to anyone who hasn't already seen the films. The characters bear strong resemblances to their film counterparts both in appearance and movement, with Sparrow and Davy Jones being particularly impressive. Unfortunately the same can't be said of the voice acting, where studio-hired guns impersonate Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, et al., with varying degrees of success. The stirring musical score is taken straight from the movie, so no complaints there.

The weakest part of At World's End is probably the combat. The enemies are all pretty dumb, controls are sluggish, and the limited number of moves at your disposal means gameplay gets repetitive fast. There are no significant differences between the fighting styles of each character, so even though some scenarios let you switch between characters on the fly, it doesn't really change the experience. Still, in terms of polish and playability, At World's End is a huge improvement over Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow.
