    A surprising result on what could have been an afterthought, given the minimal presentation, low lifespan and side-story plot.
  2. While being an okay game, the DS version doesn't quite live up to his bigger next-gen brother.
  3. Fair play to Ubisoft for playing to the DS's strengths, but this is a lightweight offering.
  4. Touch controls are well done, and even level design isn't that bad: simply, they aren't made to stay together, and this is the real, enormous problem of this game. Auto-jumping works in Zelda, not in an action-oriented platform game like this. A low-budget and incoherent project that could have been far, far better.
  5. A standard action/platform, without any interesting innovation and lacking in appealing design.
  6. Wholly unnecessary. [July 2010, p.62]

    Ubisoft, you've tried it twice on the handheld. If you work on a third, let's go back to its basics. Leave the stylus alone.

Intense levels, a great storyline, hardcore mental challenges, and a sword, what can be better. Each level will take you to across to a place full of dangerous foes and obstacles that will require split second timing to get past. A perfect game for kids and preteens, even if they didn't like the movie. Expand
