this game was interesting. i like the characters you have to beat, and some are quite hard but it is very repetitious. the same bad guys show up in each level. i really like the special skills that each person can get when you play and find enough coins to do it. my son and i finished it in a day and a half of sporadic playing. i also like that you can play cooperatively. in that regard, i found it very frustrating the limited view when your other player is not going where you want them to. good game, not hard or tricky enough.
I played through this game with my wife, who doesn't enjoy most games. It went over pretty well, with the only problems being a few annoying bugs primarily in multi-stage levels, where you defeat one character, cutscene, then new objective, it changes who you are controlling. This is particularly frustrating when you're playing co-op with someone who isn't particularly game-savvy, and they don't understand why the character changes for no apparent reason. Also, it seemed a little confined, primarily limited by the resolution of the gamecube. I'm hoping the new Prince Caspian version for the 360 allows for a larger field of view. Overall, not a great game, but well worth the rental.
