  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. A perfectly fun dungeon crawler-style game, and probably about as close as you'll get to "X-Men Legends" on the DS.
  4. 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.
  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.
