Violent and boring -- not much to roar about.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Because this game's main focus is battling and inflicting pain, it's inappropriate for young kids, even though it's rated "E." Older kids, especially teen boys, who like the challenge of combat games won't find much to excite them. While the game can be played on four different levels, there are few fighting options other than hitting the "A" button repeatedly. Two-player cooperative play is available when two Game Boys are linked.

Families looking to re-create the storyline of this classic children's literature will be disappointed with the Game Boy Advance version. While the game does a nice job of graphically representing the world presented in the movie, the gameplay focuses on combat -- even introducing it where it was not present in the movie. Only three of the 17 chapters in the game are not about combat.
