For Narnia Fans

This game is for people who loved the Disney/Walden Narnia movies and simply want to see more of their favorite characters in Narnia. The game is not unique and would not be very interesting if it were compared to other games by its non-Narnia merits. The violence in the Windows version was not detailed, but rather pointless.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

The hack n' slash gameplay is uninspired and reduces the subtle magic of Narnia to a soulless and repetitive experience. Controls are unrefined, making simple tasks like picking up objects or wielding a grappling hook more arduous than they should me. Even opening a simple chest involves pointlessly mashing the A button. Furthermore, the missions often don't make logical sense, like having to find missing lever pieces over and over again in order to open doors, luring bears into traps that are conveniently placed at regular intervals throughout the forest, or dodging killer bats in a cave to find a grappling hook that's been left in a chest. While the movie footage and co-operative play might be enough to appease Narnia fans, there's nothing otherwise noteworthy or compelling about this title.
