  1. The relative ease of the gameplay and the downplay of violence makes this an excellent game for kids of all ages - yet it's not completely sucky. A first-rate adventure for everyone.
  2. Clear, sharp visuals with beautifully illustrated landscaping and action packed battles, far outweigh the difficulties you can encounter when trying to maneuver your characters.
  3. It's impossible to deny this title's appeal, with its excellent use of an excellent license, adept implementation of team combos, and picturesque scenery. If you're a hardcore gamer, you'll notice the flaws and lack of depth, but even then, Narnia is still likely to weave a spell on you.
  4. Travellers Tales did a pretty good job of getting the most out of this license and there is enough stuff to do, that you'll be coming back to it.

    Narnia stands as a near perfect example of how to make a movie-based videogame the right way. Everything from the combat system and level design to the game's visual presentation just scream quality.
  6. 82
    With its solid presentation and polished gameplay, this is definitely a game worth checking out by fans of the film and gamers alike.
  7. The Chronicles of Narnia is an excellent game for the kids. The controls and gameplay are simple, and there is enough variety in the gameplay that will keep things moving along.
  8. A fundamentally solid game that does a good job of integrating the material of the film with solid gameplay.
  9. Things start off a little dodgy, but in the end this is a fitting game for a film that has so very much to live up to. [Dec 2005, p.64]
  10. 79
    Offers up some great gaming thrills, but with a few hiccups. Fans of the book and/or upcoming movie will get a lot out of this game, while non-fans really won't be missing much.
  11. The Chronicles of Narnia has completely surpassed all of those to come before it. This is the way all other movie to game adaptations should be done, because there is now a perfect role model out there.

    Solid in every respect. Very fun to play. Nicely tied to the film.

    It feels like you're jumping through hoops in this one. I also hate how it uses so many platformer cliches. Although I did enjoy how the It feels like you're jumping through hoops in this one. I also hate how it uses so many platformer cliches. Although I did enjoy how the film clips are blended in w/ the game (although the graphics aren't even close to looking like the films).

    Excellent use of a film license. Good game that stands on its own legs. Quality design and gameplay.
