I wanted to try this game for an easy-play, nice on the eyes game with a great storyline, but it seems that Sierra made it a little too complicated for my purposes.

If ya feel like wasting a day or 2 playing a game, then give it a try, but don't expect more than that.
It would get a better score, except that it was so short, and there is absolutly no replay value.

This game is very short. You can literally do everything there is to do in about 4 hours. If you're looking for an adventure game, I would look elsewhere as this is more a short excursion game.
Graphically, the framerate is running nice and high, creating a smoothness to nearly everything in the game. However, depending on where you move your camera to, you may see lots of open spaces in walls and objects.
The soundtrack for this game was quite enjoyable. Definitely the high point of the game.
Story followed pretty well with its source material.
The game play is pretty fun when you run around smacking goblins with a bat, but that's the start and end of things. I wouldn't buy this game.
kind of boring and tedious but decent

its just that in order to find the true ending of the movie, one must do all tasks and meet all objectives, which are not hard they are just tedious and i dont know if too many of the kids that this game is aimed at will take the time to try and finish the whole game
the good part of the game is that if you happen to miss an objective or cant find something you are able to progress in the game, after the ending of the game(chapter 7)all the areas unlock and the characters do as well and you are able to free roam to complete all the objectives.
its not a long game by any stretch though, it just felt long.
the achievements are easy to get as well, probably takes 8-9 hours to get all 1000 points

Spiderwick Chronicles ( xbox360)

VERY FRUSTRATING !!
Let me try too explain a jump too as the developers say is a jump. You hit the (supposedly) button that jumps and your character kinda does a hop in the air (about a quarter of a millimeter) than likes slides. WHAT THE HECK IS THAT KINDA JUMP??
Here I try too describe a fight. You see a goblin or whatever enemy coming at you and you swing your bat, trying too hit your target, oh wait I'm near the edge or a corner and I can't see.
Last but not least the infamous non existing map. So you take stroll out in the woods, oh I need something back at the house, HOW THE HECK DO I GET THERE ?????????????
