If you let your kids watch the movie, go ahead with his game.

A masterful work, great movie tie-in that does not disappoint.

Is It Any Good?

This game will be very enjoyable for most teenage players, but what should be noted is the great amount of realistic violence in this game. The game often begins scenarios with movie excerpts, and it attempts to match the violence of the movie both in the size of battles and in the complex sword and arrow attacks. While this game is visually intriguing and lets players join a favorite movie, parents should consider whether they want to expose their kids to this much violence.
