  1. The relative ease of the gameplay and the downplay of violence makes this an excellent game for kids of all ages - yet it's not completely sucky. A first-rate adventure for everyone.
  2. 82
    With its solid presentation and polished gameplay, this is definitely a game worth checking out by fans of the film and gamers alike.
  3. It's impossible to deny this title's appeal, with its excellent use of an excellent license, adept implementation of team combos, and picturesque scenery. If you're a hardcore gamer, you'll notice the flaws and lack of depth, but even then, Narnia is still likely to weave a spell on you.
  4. 70
    An enjoyable if unremarkable cooperative action-adventure title.
  5. Narnia makes for a decent adventure title on both systems, but it fails to do anything new or astounding. The game is also on the short and easy side, even with some of the unlockable extras.
  6. The main problem with the level design, and you've heard me say this about many other games, is that the strictly linear missions want you to complete specific objectives without usually telling you what those objectives are.
  7. On paper, Narnia could have been so much more, but the predictable and often annoying gameplay mechanics, combined with unpolished presentations and weak sound effects take away from the overall experience.

    its an okay game cause at parts it was confusing. Also you really couldn't play with just 1 player so if ur an only child and your its an okay game cause at parts it was confusing. Also you really couldn't play with just 1 player so if ur an only child and your parents are busy than don't get this game, lucky for me I have a brother. Expand
