  1. Inventory restrictions, abundance of backtracking and run of the mill production values make things pretty average.
  2. Nintendo Gamer
    Not recommended, but not not-recommended. [May 2008, p.64]
  3. The Spiderwick Chronicles isn't bad for a game-of-the-movie, but it's not good for a game.
  4. The Spiderwick Chronicles is a game that closely follows the story from the feature film and is about average.
  5. 50
    The Spiderwick Chronicles is a standard licensed game -- it's got just enough content to make a virtual reenactment of the Human/Goblin war worthwhile for fans of the franchise.
  6. You may be the biggest Spiderwick fan in the world, but unless you’re looking for a tiring gameplay experience that’s been done a zillion times before, do not let this spider crawl into your Wii collection.
  7. There's the kernel of something really interesting in The Spiderwick Chronicles. Glimmers of a free-roaming kids adventure game with RPG overtones, based on actual folklore. Sadly, it only manages to be that game for an hour or so, before steadily becoming less interesting and more generic and annoying, culminating in an ending that is absolutely cruel considering the age of the intended player.
