Zathura Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Is Zathura worthy of a purchase? No, but is a suitable rental for the younger crowd. The gameplay may be rudimentary and straightforward, but this will fit the gaming style of this film’s core audience. The puzzles aren’t overly challenging, the enemies don't pose much of a fight, and the overall experience is lacking some much needed “punch”. Not the worst movie to game translation, just uninspired and clearly looking for a payday.

Zathura Review

6 January 2007
  • Excerpt: If you're not too long in the tooth or have kids of your own, you'll probably be pretty familiar with Jumanji. It's the movie where Robin Williams gets trapped inside a board game and is released years later. Zathura, while not sharing the jungle setting, has many similarities. Some kids find a board game which happens to be more than it seems, and moments later they find their house has been sent into space and they're battling monsters.

Zathura Review

11 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Zathura is a third-person action adventure game based on the just-released movie of the same name. The movie is based on the children's book from author Chris Van Allburg, who also brought us Jumanji . Like Jumanji , Zathura is about an enchanted board game that whisks players away on all sorts of fantastical adventures. The game is your basic platformer with plenty of shallow combat and not much else.
  • Pros: Easy to pick up and play for people of all ages, Good music and capable voice acting, Three playable characters
  • Cons: Short and uninteresting, Some frustrating platforming sections, Bland graphics and weak sound effects, Annoying camera control

  • Conclusion: I am not one who likes to totally rag on a game, as I know countless hours have gone into creating them, but it is games like Zathura that just on occasion bring this side of me out. I just look at Zathura the game and see a good storyline, and gameplay that if really properly developed could have been truly entertaining. But instead we are left with a product that just never gets its feet off the ground.
