  • Summary: The malevolent White Witch has cast a 100-year winter on the land of Narnia, and you can help Aslan free his people in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. As the four children from the movie, you can battle fantastical creatures such as Minotaurs, Cyclops, Werewolves, and Wraiths. The game includes puzzle elements and is closely tied to the plot of the movie. Multiplayer cooperative play is also available. Expand

  1. A creative genius himself, C.S. Lewis would be proud that the developers have been faithful to his vision and that the 'Narnia' games might encourage children to explore the literary world he created.

    It is a breath of fresh air to see a title that, despite having a short development time for the movie's launch, delivers a strong feeling.
  3. While Chronicles of Narnia has solid graphics and sound, a lengthy adventure, and an excellent story, its repetitive "fetch-and-retrieve" gameplay wears thin over the course of seventeen levels.
  4. It's hard to recommend this game to anyone because being a fan of the series doesn't change the fact that this game is too easy, too short and loses its freshness after only a few chapters.
  5. With so many better action adventure games available on the Game Boy Advance, this short, simplistic game is especially difficult to recommend, even for fans of the movie.
  6. Unlike most movie games, Narnia for GBA is tolerable, but still lacks an overall polish.
  7. Unlike the AI, the graphics and sound are pretty good.

    This game may be simple in design and easy, but it's still a well made and enjoyable title, if you liked the movie you'll be impressed with how well it follows it's plot, a great game and one I can recommend. Collapse

    This game is fun, but the limited enemy variation and mediocre level design keeps even the most loyal fans of The Chronicles of Narnia at bay. Also, this game is INCREDIBLY short. Expand

    A timewaster. Wait a second, a two hour timewaster. The game has potential, but the potential is unreached because of the extremely short playing time. Expand
