I actually bought this game because my wife picked it up right before checkout at our local Gamestop; she enjoyed both the book and the movie, as did I. Once I started playing though I realized that this game might have been a rushed job to coincide with the theatrical release, and was a bit broken because of that. Most of the game is made up of quicktime events that make you hit the correct buttons at the correct time to progress through to the next similar event. The storyline does move almost exactly with the film, which is not bad, but it does make for some odd pacing and strange interactions with in game characters. The one major plus is that you unlock achievement points without much effort. I believe each Xbox 360 disc release requires at least 1000 points in the game, and this game hands them out like swag at a comic convention. Since I love building my gamer score, this is a plus! Another plus is the game is only six dollars (under six with your EDGE card) so you get a decent game that you don't break the bank for. If you like Beowulf you should pick up this game for a quick romp through the movie scenarios, if not, you should spend your money elsewhere.
