  1. Regardless of the fact that it is a kids game, Zathura really doesn't do anything more than create bad frame rate issues and a straining time on anyone.
  2. The puzzles aren't overly challenging, the enemies don't pose much of a fight, and the overall experience is lacking some much needed "punch". Not the worst movie to game translation, just uninspired and clearly looking for a payday.

    Zathura isn't a particularly bad title; it just lacks anything that puts it above most other recent releases.
  4. 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.
  5. A brief and generic action game that does nothing to distinguish itself from the glut of similar--and cheaper--games on the market.
  6. While the movie wasn't quite original, the game didn't fare all that well either, bogged down by lame characters, uninspired gameplay and dull visuals.
  7. Don't you have some bottle-cap collecting or laundry to be doing? Either will be much more fun than playing this game.

    Feels like they rushed to get this one out. Little boring to play.
