I was a fan of the movies and when i found out about the game i was praying that it wasn't like other movie based games. when is comes to movie games most are swings and misses, save for a precious few, and this is a fine example of an enormous flop of a game. It had very few redeeming qualities. The game play was repetitive and very predictable. The music was rather nice but that is simply because it was taken from movies. The controls were absolute garbage most of the game you spent flailing your wii-mote around to attack the enemies. The graphics are comparable to that of an average gamecube game. The game require almost no skill at all. The difficulty is rather odd, at one point it will be really difficult then it becomes a piece of cake in the next area. This "game" is an awful excuse of a game and the developers should at least try when making these games. Just because they know that the casual gamer will buy this carp doesn't mean that they shouldn't put effort into the quality of the game.

This game is very dull and predictable. Using the Wii remote with this game adds a little fun but after 5 mins of thrashing back and forth with no apparent skill the game just seems to loose it's fun. The score is great, (stolen from the movies) and the voice editing is spot on for the most part. However I couldn't even play the game for more than an hour before regretting I even rented it. This title may be more appealing to someone say between ages 8 to 13 because you can hype them up on sugar rich Kool Aide then let them wear themselves out! I can't give this game high marks because, ... well it's too annoying to even play quite frankly.
