I was less than thrilled going around killing soldiers as I'm not the type to want to kill anything especially in a game format. I got to the point where you have to destroy the 3 caterpaults but had no clue on how to go about this. I followed some of the green arrows and were able to pick some keys, some "powerful" type weapons but had zero instructions on how I was supposed to destroy these caterpaults on the enemy's side. I had no idea what the point of the game was either and soon gave up. I just put it under another dull game I've tried and back it goes tomorrow. I didn't find it very fun, didn't like the killing but did last longer on it than other games I've tried recently. I say don't even bother with this one and just stick with the movie.

"Prince Caspian" A game with many faults

Prince Caspian (the video game) is yet another in a long line of bad games made from blockbuster movies. Why's that?
First off, the camera doesn't move at all. Finding the right path got very difficult because I couldn't get a proper look at the layout (on screen map is very little help here). Off screen enemies are also troublesome; good thing your characters can take a lot of hits before going down, and there's a chock full of check points.
Second, the combat is just your button masher. You mostly fight human soldiers by going up to them and mashing the A button. Doesn't matter which character you are, the tactic is the same.
Third, the level design is awful. They have you hunting for switches while mindlessly beating up the bad guys. There are puzzles, but there's problems with that (see next point.)
Fourth, the puzzles are bad. Almost all of them require you to find pieces like sticks or gears. But the dark visuals make it hard for me to find these items; the game can grind to a halt when you're looking for the one piece of the puzzle that will let you move on to the next part of the level. And being pestered by soldiers doesn't add any fun to it, either.
The game has many clips from the movie, but if you wanted to see clips from the movie, why not just go see the movie?
