Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

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).

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.
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.

Conclusion: The Chronicles of Narnia is really a hot topic in 2005 and the game unfortunately won’t be a huge part of it. This may be a good game but it comes nowhere near the magnitude of how great the book and movie is. If you loved the book or movie give this game a shot, it is cool to take the role of these beloved characters; just don’t expect an epic experience either.
