Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Family Friendly Gaming

Excerpt: C.S. Lewis is known far and wide for his insightful, and inspirational writings. Family Friendly Gaming has even had a piece on this hero of the faith. The console version of the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe on the Playstation 2, Gamecube, Xbox, and Personal Computer is vastly different than the hand held versions. This version is more of a party hack and slash (in the vein of Gauntlet).
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Review

Conclusion: When compared to other movie-based titles that are geared for the younger crowd, The Chronicles of Narnia excels in a few key areas. The overall scope of the story is much deeper and involving than other games, and the inclusion of multiple characters for combat and puzzles adds a bit more depth as well. The experience is still easy though, and won’t pose much challenge to anyone over the main demographic.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
20 December 2005
Excerpt: ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the height of World War II, and after the Pevensie familyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s London household is bombed during an air raid, the four children, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy, are bundled off to the country to stay with (although the game never truly explains it) a kindly old professor and his nasty Scottish housekeeper.
Conclusion: The Chronicles of Narnia has a built in fan base that will likely enjoy seeing a classic book brought to the Xbox, but if you're not a fan of the books (or movie) already then you may want to avoid this title altogether.
Excerpt: This game at first glance looks like it is going to be terrible, but as it turns out it's actually quite fun to play. The entire game is a play through of the movie, complete with movie cut scenes and movie to game fades. This is a one ane two player game, but is much more enjoyable as a two player game. In this game, individual characters have abilities specific to certain situations, so using the right character at the right time is crucial.
