The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
COOL HARDCORE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This T-for Teen game is christian you know. That means a game that is about Jesus, but that's a different kind of christian game. Aslan is Jesus, he was risen from the dead, but not a zombie, just like in the real story Jesus Christ died on a cross, and was risen from the dead as a real person. Cool, huh? Although it has fantasy violence, still an age-appropriate christian game for teenagers, also young kids.
I received this game as a gift several years ago. As an avid fan of the Narnia series, I was excited to give it a go. I was in for quite the surprise. The game moved quickly at the start, and I flew through some of the early levels. Others, I would spend hours just trying to make it to the end! Even after beating most of the levels, there was plenty of exploring left for me. There are statues to collect in each level, which you have to find in order to do well in one of the last battles (Beruna, I believe it was). Finding the statues, and collecting the bonus coins added hours to the game, on which I'd already spent much of my summer vacation. Well worth a second playthrough. Plus, there are plenty of extras to unlock in the bottom drawer of the wardrobe, ranging from bonus levels, to storyboards, to cast interviews. The sound quality is excellent. I can't say that I ever really tired of the music or the sound effects in the game. The controls are easy to use, even for younger kids, which is nice. Having a friend join you for multiplayer is very easy, and they can drop in or out of the level at any point, which is very convenient. All in all, a fantastic game, especially for fans of the movie.
pretty cool Christian game
Ok, so the Christian part is a little vague. But, the story sort of symbolizes the Crucifixion of Christ in Game format. I love the Narnia series. I have read all the books, seen all the movies, and when I saw this I had to get it. Just a brotip: do not get the PC version. in the PC version, it is impossible to beat the last level, due to a fault where the White witch will not come out from behind a rock. I found a patch for it, but I think that Disney deleted it since then. Get the GC, Xbox, or playstation version of it.
As for gameplay, there are plenty of moves you can buy. You collect coins during levels, and you can get moves like "ogre bane" or "wolf bane". I cannot remember all of the names of the moves. Peter is the strongest, Edmund is the most agile, Susan uses arrows (and some weird move that looks something in between karate, and dancing.)
As far as replayability, this game has HUNDREDS of unlockables, and secrets including an interview with CS Lewis' adopted son, and bonus levels. I have had this game since 2009, and I still haven't unlocked everything. In order to get some of those goodies, you need to find statues, and shields. Some are harder to find then others.
Now onto graphics: the Graphics are pretty basic, but never mind that. It was made in 2005, and they were experimenting with a new way to create lifelike graphics. I cannot compare it to other games in 2005, because I didn't play video games back then. The game has little clips from the movie, so I give it an extra point for that.
The music is really great, and most of it come from the movie. It can really get you blood moving sometimes, especially in the "beavers dam" level.
My favorite part of the game, is all the parts where you have to figure out what to do, without much instruction. This presents a good challenge for new gamers. BEWARE: When you first play it, it is really hard. But when you beat it, it becomes incredibly easy. Fortunately, the developers saw that coming, and hid all the unlockables I mentioned earlier, for further challenge. I love this game, and I would recommend it to anyone. Don't expect it to stick to the story though. And though it is Christian-based, it is really vague.
In my opinion this game is a perfect 8. The game controls are simple and doesn't require much of a tutorial. The graphics aren't too great and you have a limited environment space. The sound is decent and there isn't much to say about it. The game is simple but difficult in some areas. The price is cheap, it basically follows the movie plot correctly, and is multiplayer. I would reccomend this game to a Narnia fan.
This is a fun game. It is very fun to play with another person. I enjoyed this game as well as the movie. If you love the movie you will also like the game. Although the game was fun, I never really played it once I beat it. Other than that it is a good game.
