I loved The Chronicles of Narnia game for DS, it was so fun and exciting to play! I beat the game twice cause it was so fun. The best part of the game are all the little quests that the animals of Narnia give you to complete. I just watched the movie for the first time yesterday and I thought that the game was actually better than the movie!

The battle tactics are good, however Susan's bow is hard to aim so I rarely ever used her. It seems that Peter and Lucy are the two strongest characters, though it blows my mind how a six year old can outdo her 15 year old sister. Edward would be stronger if you spend a lot of time leveling him when he is by himself since the story dictates him absent most of the time. The story is a little lacking, so if you've never seen the movie or read the books, its a good idea to read up on them or you could be lost storywise. There's not much explaining and the game skips big portions of the story that would seem to make sense to keep. There's a lot of sidequests and a few dungeon quests which are the main quests. However, each of the sidequests must be completed to complete the story, however, you can do them in any order you want as long as you can get to the areas you need for the quest. I got to the last main quest and found I couldn't complete it because I missed one of the sidequests and the questgiver wasn't where she was supposed to be anymore. I had to restart the entire game because I saved over my last good save. That being said, I still finished the game in about three days total. The hardest part of the game, in my opinion, is navigation. You get a world map and a screen map. The screen map is the only one that shows you where you are, so it can get a little tricky until you can figure out where everything is and which path leads to where. Once I learned my way around, I was able to devise shortcuts to doing my quests which knocked about 50% of the gametime off. That gives more time to level your characters and earn money for the upgrades. Voice overs would've been nice. As far as I could see there was no rewards for "correct" answers, so I kind of missed the point as to why the dialogue was nonlinear when it just went back to linear anyway once the NPC's started talking again. Even with the flaws, I still enjoyed the game and played it through to the end.
i THINK THIS GAME IS FUN BEACAUSE THERE ARE ALOT OF CREATURES TO FIGHT AND KILL. I ALSO LIKE IT BEACAUSE THERE IS A WIDE VARIATY OFG WEAPONS IF YOU HAVE THE ICE CRYSTALS AND THE GRAPHICS ARE VERY GOOD. ALTHO I THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE MADE THE BOSSES A BIT EASYER. SO THATS WHY I GIVE IT A 7.
