  1. Wow, this game was not what I thought it would be. The original license wasn't an interesting or original idea and the game sadly follows suit.
  2. It truly is a sad day for the gaming world when a video game reviewer asks his readers to put down the game and read the book instead; you're invariably going to enjoy it more.
  3. Sluggish would not even begin to describe the controls. Moving Alex around is like driving a ten ton dump truck through wet cement in a blizzard.
  4. If you have to choose, buy the DS version instead. There are better games for the GBA.

    Imagine one of the old, top-down Grand Theft Autos. Now imagine that the main character is replaced with a young teenager and that the police and gang members are replaced with henchmen. Now imagine that any useful weapon is taken away and replaced with a pen and some zit cream. The controls are sluggish and hard to use, the enemy AI is frustrating and very hard; and the gameplay is even worse than that of "barbie's princess & pauper". Any attempt at resembling the book or movie is instantly demolished. Readers, don't buy it. I beg you. It's Atari's "ET" for the Game Boy generation. Full Review »
