I LIKE THE QUICKIE ACHIEVEMENT POINTS THAT YOU GET PLAYING THIS GAME. THE STORY IS CUTE AND I HAVE NOT YET SEEN THE MOVIE, BUT THAT DID NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO ME IN THE GAME PLAY. THE CAMERA SOMETIMES SUCKS AND I CANNOT FIND THE STUPID LITTLE PIG GUY TO FINISH THE GAME! I AM STUCK AT 91% DONE AND AM PO'ED! IT WAS AN EASY PLAY AND WAS FUN.

Like most other movie games like Transformers, Harry Potter series and spiderman. This game takes those games to a whole new level. First Play the game, get half way, go watch the movie and then come back and finish it off. It truly redefined the way I play games. It is family friendly yet has some extrememly adult themes. It is the perfect balance and anyone, any age, any race, any religion can play this game.

The game stays loyal to the movie. The movie is not very loyal to the books, but this game is based on the movie, and it follows okay. There are some things you do not in the movie, but they have every action scene in the movie, and add more so you have more things to do. Although the story mode is very short, I beat it in 3 hours on Normal. The graphics are also very good. After you finish the story mode, you can complete the field guide to complete the story mode and see the last cutscene, but I haven't 100% completed the game I don't know who has. I don't know what the last cutscene is and what happens after you complete the field guide. I would, if you are renting this game off here, just send the game back after you finished the story mode like I did, but if you really want to try to complete the field guide, go ahead. I would definitely rent this game if your a fan of the Spiderbook books and movie like I am.
