I loved this game. Seriously... Normally, Movie games suck, but i was pleasantly surprised with this one. The graphics were really good and the controls weren't to terribly hard to get used to. The achievements were all attainable for it's target age group and actually fun to get. The only reason I wouldn't give it 10/10 is I couldn't skip the cut scenes. Since I've already seen the movie, I didn't really need to see it again in the cut scenes. Overall though, I really enjoyed it.

Decent, but time consuming...

Not a bad game, particularly if you enjoyed the movie even slightly. Achievements are easy though I didn't get them all. Collecting can be a pain and the game doesn't track everything you have to collect, so it's hard to know where your progress is on certain items (collecting sprites, to be specific). Worth a look but all in all definitely a rental and not worth owning. I'd rank this somewhere below the best of the Harry Potter games, better than the worst of them (Goblet of Fire).

Not bad for a kids game

This game was o.k. for a game based on a kids movie. I liked the different actions with each character you play, and the quests were fun, but the game was over WAY too quick. I think i finished this in one day of leisurely playing. I could of gone through and gone all the minute things to get %100, but didnt feel like chasin a bunch of bugs for the rest of the day.
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.
