  1. The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian is a great looking title which should thrill younger gamers no end, particularly if they're fans of the film.
  2. As movie tie-in games go, this is actually rather good. It flows well, is visually impressive and maintains sufficient pace and excitement to keep the young player tuned in for many hours.

    The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is one of the few licensed games that I am not ashamed to recommend, especially to fans of the series.

    The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian would be a good game to let any young fan of the movie try his or her hand at, but it's too simplistic for most core gamers to find enjoyable.
  5. Game Informer
    The swordplay is simple, and dreadfully dull. [July 2008, p.86]
  6. Far from being a complete disaster, Prince Caspian for the PS3 has some good moments but they are overshadowed by repetitive gameplay and a poor presentation.
  7. Maybe kids will get some enjoyment out of it, but anyone over 12-14 years old should probably just skip it. We all know movie tie-ins are generally rushed and second-rate, but from my experience, this one takes the cake!
  8. A slightly above average romp on home consoles that won't be too challenging for the age group of 13 and above.
  9. Prince Caspian combines simplistic gameplay with a confusing narrative for an action adventure that unfortunately isn't as good as the movie on which it's based.
  10. 52
    Ultimately, this game is really more of an interactive movie - the combat offers next to no challenge and there is very little replay value.
  11. Prince Caspian is sure fun for any fan or gamer under the age of 13 as it requires no central thinking to complete, but older gamers will find this game’s bland combat too dull to even consider a try.
  12. The eternal fight between good and evil – but this time there is no winner.
  13. Prince Caspian is clearly aimed at the younger players, but even those demand a better game nowadays.
  14. There are just too many exasperating issues with controls and lighting that keep me from recommending it.
  15. Playstation: The Official Magazine (US)
    Stick to LEGO games, Traveler's Tales. [Aug 2008, p.75]
  16. PSM3 Magazine UK
    Traveller's Tales have no excuse for serving up this steaming pile of Minotaur dung. [Nov 2008, p.84]

    The awkward camera angles, horrible controls, cut-scenes that interrupt every five seconds and horrible characters all make this gameThe awkward camera angles, horrible controls, cut-scenes that interrupt every five seconds and horrible characters all make this game ignorable. This is a horrible copy of the lego series and in fact made by the same people. Its in 1080p, which is nice. But how this got a 58 metascore is beyond me. Full Review »
