Players assume the role of Arthur and hisDirectly inspired by the animated film of the same name, Arthur and the Invisibles allows players to relive the adventures depicted in the film, which tells the story of young Arthur who finds the magical adventure of a lifetime in his own backyard. Players assume the role of Arthur and his two companions in their mission to save the Land of the Invisibles and its Minimoy inhabitants destruction. The game incorporates filmmaker Luc Besson's rich Minimoys universe with the same richness and extraordinary visuals of the film. Gameplay is based on the concept of the "trio" - each phase of a puzzle or combat requires utilizing the skills of all three characters (Arthur, Selenia and Betameche); Each character has unique but complimentary powers which players must use to their advantage. The three heroes have their own particular objectives, but they must also aid one other; More than 20 hours of gameplay, fighting, puzzles, driving and flying; Players can watch integrated scenes from the film offered in the form of parallel action phases.

  1. Giving you a multi-genre gaming experience in one title is innovative, and Atari really shines with the progressive steps they have taken to improve upon the tried and true formula of platform games.
  2. One of the better movie-based games with hours of entertainment for both kids and adults.
  3. It's not really a title that hardcore gamers are going to be interested in, and it's as linear as hell, but as an arcade platformer for kids, it's a cracker. [Mar 2007, p.77]
  4. Because of its high production values, fans of the movie will undoubtedly enjoy this movie tie-in, but the epic scope of the adventure is hampered by the unoriginal gameplay.
  5. Good graphics and intelligent level design help to make this a worthy enough companion to Arthur's elaborate adventures on the big screen.
  6. These offshoots are often rushed out in time for the opening of the film, designed to squeeze extra revenue from tired-eyed parents. They're rarely very good, and Arthur and the Invisibles fails to buck that trend. [Apr 2007, p.59]
  7. If nothing more, this mostly broken game exists purely as a way to cash-in on the latest CG snoozer not starring anthropomorphic animals. At least the packaging has glitter on it. Really, it does.

    Graphic is ok, sound is fair, and gameplay too. This game is boring.
