  • Conclusion: It even changes based on context, in the middle of a battle with the goblins it gets more dramatic, when simply running around it's very light. This is not exactly an innovative feature but at least it's present. Finally the graphics. Awful.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Licensed movie games do not have a memorable track record with gamers worldwide. Publishers keep coming up with them for a reason though. That reason is simple, people keep buying them!

  • Summary: It’s that time again folks! Movie tie-in time! Can you guess what the source material is this time? It’s Spiderwick Chronicles!

10 March 2008
  • Conclusion: The game is meant primarily for children. For a movie based game it offers a fairly decent gaming experience and doesn’t disappoint. It does have some problems and once the Field Guide is completed there is little much left to do.
