Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Combat is more elegant than violent, in keeping with the spirit of the films, but there's still no getting around the fact that there's a whole lot of it in the game. Granted, combat is always against either the armies of Caspian's usurping uncle Miraz or the evil denizens of Narnia such as werewolves and ogres, but the encounters do become repetitive after a while, as does the scenery you'll have to backtrack through numerous times. While Prince Caspian does hold its own as an enjoyable game that takes full advantage of the Nintendo DS's unique features (in fact, you can play the entire game using only the stylus and no buttons), it's still not quite as sophisticated as other action/adventure offerings for the Nintendo DS.
