  1. Krome has done a fine job of translating this fantasy into the video game sphere. Legend of the Guardians sticks to a couple of core experiences and executes them well. You could do a lot worse than flying the skies protected by these stalwart owl defenders.

    Legend of the Guardians is a very solid game that is hindered by its short play time and lack of reason to come back for more.
  3. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole would have been a very good game for children had it not been for its brevity and lack of difficulty.
  4. One of the better licensed products in my recent memory.

    For children, this is definitely a winner. For fans of casual, laid back gaming involving owls, again, I can recommend this. If you're expecting value for money, however, then you'd be far better off looking elsewhere. It's a fun thumb-twiddling experience but your feathers will be itching for something new before long.

    Ga'Hoole is a rarity in that it's one of those few movie tie-in titles that is actually worth playing.

    Legend of the Guardians is a quite good licensed game with some enjoyable ideas. Fans of the books will be pleased with this (very short) tie-in. All the others… well, maybe not.
  9. The game is very short, and with nothing much beyond the game's story mode, most players will be done with this title in only a few short hours.
  10. This short flight of fancy has its charms, but it gets stale fast.
  11. This makes for a great weekend rental, but it's hard to justify the retail price of $50 for the brevity and simplicity of this experience.

    A questionable franchise makes for an awkward game. It's not terrible, just utterly miserable. [Issue#98, p.105]

    Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole is definitely a short experience, likely clocking in around 4 to 5 hours for younger players.

    After the whole Galliant team played through this extremely innovative game, we decided to give it a perfect score of 10/10 -Galliant Reviews.After the whole Galliant team played through this extremely innovative game, we decided to give it a perfect score of 10/10 -Galliant Reviews. It gives you the wonderful experience of reliving the fantastic movie all over again. People may say it has errors, but those errors have no toll on the complete game. If anything, they are more of pet-peave, taking away nothing from the story. Buy it in stores now to play-through the full game.

    Still a better aerial combat simulator than what became of the ace combat series.
    Too bad the original voice actors weren't involved, and
