  1. There are a lot of good ideas in Alex Rider: Stormbreaker, but the main game is too clumsy for us to recommend it.
  2. A solid action game for the Nintendo DS. Even if you're not a fan of the film you will have fun running around beating up dudes, sneaking around, and various other espionage type activities.

    The game mechanics really do show infinite promise, and even with this first attempt there is some dumb fun to be had – except it takes no more than five hours to complete the game 100%. Yes it is simple, short, easy, shallow and a movie tie-in. But I enjoyed it.

    Cool gadgets don't excuse the fact that most of this game is bland and repetitive stuff. [Sept 2006, p.68]

    This game makes me sad, As its based of the OK movie that was spawned by an amazing book series that generations of kids enjoy.
    For one the game is short and repetitive with minigames that try to prolong the games play time.
    Second the graphics are appalling even for the DS.
    On a brighter note It bares some relevance to the Books and games but they are to simplified to be enjoyed I rate it 4/10
