This is what I call a "Trickster Game'". That means it sounds like it is awesome by the info posted about what you will be doing in it by Gamefly but when you get it home it reeks. It stared really exciting but soon lost its fun and storyline. I did not like this game.
While I enjoyed the game I got frustrated with the cheat codes. i was able to find cheat codes for the game, but they never seemed to work. Even on the easiest setting the game gets difficult too quickly. I didn't like the fact that you couldn't switch between siblings when they weren't nearby. There were times when I would have liked to have one sibling doing one thing and another doing something else somewhere else on the map. Overall I give this game a 5 out of 10.

I truly enjoyed the books and the recent movie that came out, only to be disappointed by the game. The game has an interesting format, where you get to pick between characters and perform various tasks to move through each level. This format has worked wonderfully in other games, like the Lego Star Wars games, but does not help this game at all. The beginning does give a good way of exhibiting the controls, but I feel that the tasks that you perform are not exciting at all. At one point, the boys use a stick to knock down ice and wolves. Susan uses tennis balls to keep bats out of the house. And they also have to hide from their nanny, Mrs. McCray, which you do by pressing A. This part was the most confusing and most wasteful part of the game. It just felt like all the excitement and awe of narnia was washed out and replaced to meet the means of a children's video game. If you have a young child that is barely started to play video games, then this game is for them. Other than that, the only way to be excited for the next movie, Prince Caspian, is to watch the movie again.
