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.
The game was OK but they changed what happened in the movie. It was made of short 3:00 levels. (not hours)It was extremely easy and me and my older sister beat it in less than a day. We started at 4:00 and we slept then played at 10:00 and beat it at 12:00 we only played for 6 hours (i am now 10 my sister is 12).This game is so easy even though its rated teen (only for violence should be rated e 10)it is probably better for 6 to 8 year olds but (thanks game fly you sent it just in time for my birthday good present). But the animation was horrible i wanted to kill the beaver in a level (he was so incredibly ugly sorry animal lovers )but the game is ok and great with 2 players (some might say player 2s)

do you enjoy the lord of the rings games? specifically the return of the king? then you will enjoy The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe.
The chronicles of narnia: the lion the witch and the wardrobe is an exact copy of the book based movie.
With up to 4 playable characters, all with unique moves. the game never really gets boring. There are lots of puzzles to be solved and a lot of enemies to kill. The games levels change a lot in order to keep the gameplay fresh.
The only thing that got on my nerves was that there are quite a few movies that play in between levels
this game reminds me of a more child appropriate second class "Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King" game, which i recommend over this, but this game is still fun and entertaining for everyone.
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.
