Ultimately Zathura is a full priced game with the least amount of play value I've seen in recent memory. An average gamer would get through this adventure in a few short hours which means for goodness sakes, rent this one if you're itching to play the movie.
I can’t really say I enjoyed anything about this game. It is completely normal for a franchise title, anything based on a film or TV property, and although I wish it weren’t true, I can’t recommend this game to anyone.
Kids have done this all before over and over again in more distinct and sleeker settings. Besides the cool runaway Robot sequences there's nothing that's challenging, innovative or eye-catching about Zathura.
