  1. An evening-long game that's high on production values but low on replayability.
  2. Almost every aspect of Lion King is simply acceptable. As a result, Lion King doesn’t suffer from any glaring flaws but it also doesn’t give you a terribly compelling reason to buy the game.

    I'll cut things short by saying that even if you're in the market for an overly simple, cookie-cutter, kid-targeted game, there are better ones available on the system. "102 Dalmatians," for one.
  4. Not only is the movie a copy of another movie, it's now a game which copies a movie which copies another movie. Too much copying means no innovation.
  5. Avoid this one at all costs, and if your child begs for it after seeing it on store shelves, spare them unending agony by only renting it -- and then only as punishment for misbehaving.
