Chronicles of Narnia, The: Prince Caspian The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008)


This is one of the most interesting games ever released. It garnered negative or average reviews compared to developer Traveller’s Tales LEGO games which tend to get universally positive reviews. However, there is no gameplay difference between this and the LEGO games and little technical difference. But this game is horrible. It’s unrewarding to play. It’s not fun. The action controls are unresponsive and finickity. The camera frequently insists on placing itself behind scenery or obscuring players and points of interest. It’s one for achievement hunters only. It’s painfully, wilfully irritating. Yet it has exactly the same gameplay as all those lauded LEGO games. Fascinating.

This Chronicles of Narnia, The: Prince Caspian game contains extreme blade and arrow violence, some extreme fantasy violence.
