Summary: i always liked games like this but it does get old but the graphics r good i would reccomend this for people who like dungeon siege or games like that it gets too easy sometimes but its one of those games that are good enough to play on a rainy day you know i mean its not halo but its good :D
Summary: Let me start out by saying I like the movies. But this...this was just terrible. The graphics were like pixels (little blocks), as though they were in a designing stage. The sound is not good, unless its a movie clip, which only last for 5 seconds. The controls are far too simple, even for a child, you only need to know two buttons. The gamplay isn't good either, its pressing X repeatedly and climbing things.
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: The first Chronicles of Narnia game (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) was an amazing game. Stellar graphics, seemless transition from movie to game, imaginative level design, excellent two player strategy, a level system for special attacks, etc. Therefore, I was excited to play Prince Caspian. I think there are a few things that ruin this game. First is it not being linear. Each level is open-ended.
Summary: I am sad to say that this game is not as good as the movie. The combat system is weak (only two buttons??), the puzzles are highly repetitive. Only very young fans or highly casual gamers will like this one.
