The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
13 January 2009
Excerpt: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is currently being screened at cinemas across Australia which is based on the popular novels by C.S. Lewis and this is the official sequel from the first block buster movie.
Conclusion: If you've got children, this would be an excellent purchase, they're bound to both enjoy it and understand what's going on far more than an adult ever would. To those of us grown up but still young at heart, this is a good rental, or cheap purchase like i personally did. It's nice to find a children's game that bucks the trend of being nearly universally awful.
Excerpt: What is it? The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian is the game of the movie of the book that was the sequel to The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe. This time we find Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy returning to Narnia, only to discover that hundreds of years have passed and the place is not quite how they remember it.
Excerpt: I've never looked at a wardrobe full of coats in quite the same way since discovering Narnia. The magical kingdom has always held a certain allure. I love imagining that somewhere out there, a special world exists where griffins and centaurs roam wooded foothills and gallop across flower-strewn meadows, just as real as you or I.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I don’t I know anyone who hasn’t heard of The Chronicles of Narnia before. Almost as essential to any childhood as Dr Seuss, C. S. Lewis’ magical series of books had plenty of story, magic, and intrigue about them. I’m sure I wasn’t the only kid who would regularly grope around the back of their closet in the hopes of unlocking some magical world.
Excerpt: Prince Caspian for the Nintendo DS is a painful game to play. Not necessarily because it's terrible or because it pulls out your fingernails, but because during the whole journey you can't help but keep mental count of the game's missed opportunities for something above mediocrity.
Pros: Unique battle system. Plenty of characters to recruit.
Summary: So just how bad is Prince Caspian? Not a very positive attitude, true, but wave after wave of rubbish movie tie-ins, from Transformers to Spider-Man 3, has led us to approach any cinema-based game that isn't preceded by 'LEGO' in the title with some dread.
Pros: More robust than most hack 'n' slashers, Looks good, for a multiformat release, Enjoyable two-player mode
Cons: Camera gets caught behind scenery, Stealth sections a mistake
Excerpt: Traveller’s Tales has done a pretty good job with licenses over the years. They’ve turned a toy line in LEGO into one of the most adored and enjoyable gaming franchises over the past three years with LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Indiana Jones . With The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian , TT have once again developed a game that successfully represents the emotion of the licence. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean Prince Caspian is a fantastic title.
