Excerpt: DreamWorks released Rise of the Guardians last year to give fans a brand new take on old fairy tale legends including Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. Fans are obviously skeptical when it comes to new video games based on films, especially when they are based around an animated film that doesn't appeal to many gamers in the first place.
Excerpt: I have yet to see Rise of the Guardians at the theater. I know a little bit about it. We have these mythical creatures that fight against the darkness. Pitch (black as night) wants to make the kids stop believing in things like the Easter bunny, Sandman, Santa Claus, Jack Frost, and the Tooth Fairy. Jack Frost? Yup Jack Frost.
Santa wields sword in combat-heavy, RPG-like action game.

Summary: Parents need to know that Rise of the Guardians is based on the movie of the same name. It stars cartoonish, warrior-like versions of characters like the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny who do battle against the Pitch (the Boogeyman) and his army of shadowy nightmare creatures. Santa spends the entire game running around with a sword in his hand, slicing and chopping away at his foes. This game could play havoc with kids' images of these semi-hallowed figures.
Excerpt: Julemanden, Tandfeen, Ole Lukøje, Påskeharen og Hr. Frost samles i kampen mod Mørkemanden i spiludgaven af den biografaktuelle De Eventyrlige Vogtere. Desværre viser det sig, at Rise of the Guardians blot tilhører den store gruppe af simpel og ligegyldig metervare, der sædvanligvis sprøjtes ud op til julehandlen. I Rise of the Guardians er en lille gruppe på fem fantasivæsener samlet.
Pros: Flot spil-cover Nemt at styre
Cons: Uhyre ensformigt - simpel button mashing Bliver på intet tidspunkt sjovt Svag lyd og grafik
