  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. A perfectly fun dungeon crawler-style game, and probably about as close as you'll get to "X-Men Legends" on the DS.
  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. 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.
  5. If the movie delivers as well as the DS version of the game did, I’ll be a very happy camper.
  6. A fundamentally solid game that does a good job of integrating the material of the film with solid gameplay. The presentation is especially impressive for a portable game.

    I love this game but the worst part is when yo have to get into the last two dungeons but other than that it is awesome.
