This game is almost unplayable by kids because of its bad control system. Only those experienced in PC games should attempt to play this one. If players can master the convoluted control system, the game provides many puzzles to solve -- they start easy, but soon become more complex and challenging. While there is combat, it is minimal and not too difficult.

Arthur and the Invisibles presents lushly colored environments that really add to the gaming experience. The music also tracks the movie and is quite lovely. Unfortunately, the characters' speech is jerky and full of stutters. This game feels like a sloppily designed port of the console game to the PC, and is best for older kids who are familiar with using the keyboard.
