For kids only, and even then it would suck

Summary: Played the game for 5 minutes. I understand it's a "Disney" game, but still. Cannot stand that 2.5 dimensional interface. Either do a bird's eye 2-D view, or a full 3-D view, don't do a 2.5 D view, it's very cheap to do that (aka Demon Stone and PS2 Lord of the Rings games). The game is a kid's game, it almost looks like a Mario Brothers game but without the fun. Yes, the graphics are good but what is the point if the game sucks.
Summary: I might be a little cranky becuase the game made me dizzy with lousy camera angles, but mostly, the game just fell short of my modest expectations. The movie integration was decent and the film clips were great, but beyond that, there's not all that much good to say for the game. The puzzles are really annoying. Pick up lever, put lever in, press b, press a like 40 times... and so on and so forth. The boss fights also sucked.
Summary: I'll preface my review by saying that I am a huge fan of the books and two films that have come out as of this review writing. Saying that, I really enjoyed this game, from start to finish. Most movie tie-in games I've played usually have turned out to be really bad, and just seem to be thrown together to make a quick buck. Not this game. I'll give you my thoughts about what I did and didn't like about it: The Good: - The graphics are very well done.
