  1. A surprisingly deep dungeon crawler that makes ample and ingenious use of the DS’s touch-screen. The game plays well, sounds awesome, and looks absolutely stunning on Nintendo’s handheld wonder, and if it were not for a handful of nagging annoyances, it would be getting top honors.
  2. Though the game does have its quirks, both in its interface and the overall congruity of its various gameplay elements, it is overall a very tight game and offers gamers of any age an enjoyable experience.
  3. As with many movie games, Narnia has a large helping of content but a rushed interface. Controls are slow and a bit unresponsive, and the inability to pause during menu management is confusing.
  4. Just when you reach your breaking point the game changes up just enough to make you continue.
  5. When all is said and done, Narnia for the DS isn't a bad game, there's just little outstanding about it.
  6. A big mix of somewhat clumsy gameplay and great use of the environmental conditions of the land of Narnia.
  7. The graphics are there, as is some of the sound, and a few decent gameplay elements, but the boring combat system, repetitive scenery, and horrible menu set up really keeps the game from ever becoming more than a mediocre waste of time.
