After completing the DS version of Arthur and the Invisibles, I didn’t think that the PS2 version would even come close to giving me the same level of entertainment. The DS version was a very solid game but so is this. In fact, the PS2 version is even better than the DS version, as it should be.

The game is relatively short, but still is a delight for the eyes. The story is familiar but presented very well, and has broad appeal – just like the characters. This is a platformer, with a finite set of puzzles to solve, but manages to be a title that is very entertaining and a treat for players of almost any age. Atari scores with this title.

Arthur and the Invisibles is a diamond among coal game. Giving you a multi-genre gaming experience in one title is innovative, and Atari really shines with the progressive steps they have taken to improve upon the tried and true formula of platform games. Even with a few shortcomings, Arthur and the Invisibles should be on the list of every aspiring gamer out there.

All in all Arthur is a very fun and impressive “children’s” game. I say “children’s” because even though it is geared towards the youngins, there is plenty here for the older crowd as well. Good level design, mystical music score and some impressive puzzles put Arthur and the Invisibles visibly above par.

Jak je tedy vidno, Arthur a Minimojové nedopadli vůbec špatně, ba právě naopak. Ačkoliv předlohou nebyl žádný kasovní trhák, když se kritici celkem svorně shodli, že „na Pixar to zkrátka nemá“, je herní výsledek mnohem lepší než naprostá většina virtuálních zpracování dětských animovaných snímků. Oceňujeme především to, že hra je hodně chytrá, dobře nadesignovaná a hlavně je s ní i po několika hodinách zábava. Pochopitelně, dospělé přepadne stereotyp o něco dříve než děti, ale i tak pro ně hra stojí za zkoušku. Vedle dobře vymyšlených úkolů obsahuje totiž i taktický element, jelikož je zapotřebí kombinovat schopnosti tří odlišných hrdinů. Bohužel hru zatím do České republiky nikdo nedováží a tím pádem ani nepřekládá, což je velká škoda, jelikož i příjemně vyprávěný příběh stojí za vstřebání.

Mir ist klar, das die PC-Portierung bei Konsolentiteln ohnehin genug Geld und Aufwand kostet. Aber wenn die Umgebungsgrafik, Kameraführung und der Speicherkomfort kaum über das Niveau der sieben Jahre alten Playstation 2 reichen, dann kommen sich PC-Nutzer zu Recht vernachlässigt vor. Das ist gerade bei Arthur and the Minimoys besonders schade, denn an sich glänzt das Spiel als Paradebeispiel für eine gelungene Kinderfilmumsetzung. Es ist abwechslungsreich, schön erzählt, toll vertont - und die unterschiedlichen Eigenschaften der drei Helden sorgen sogar für taktischen Anspruch. PC-Spieler, die dem Genre etwas abgewinnen können oder ihren Kindern etwas Gutes tun wollen, sollten den Kauf erwägen.

Arthur and the Invisibles does a fine job of blending different gameplay styles. It packs plenty of action and puzzles, as well as a high degree of polish throughout. What's more, it has enough real gameplay to warrant a look from just about anyone, not just kids or those who love the property. It's not a perfect ride, since a few AI glitches and camera problems due get in the way. Also, the pacing suffers when completing the puzzles. But these problems fail to drag the experience down by very much.

Das ist das erste Mal, dass mir die Auswahl der Kamerawinkel in einem Action-Adventure so extrem negativ aufgefallen ist. Gut, dass ich die Kamera selbst nachziehen kann – komfortabel ist das aber nur mit Gamepad, und das hat nicht jeder PC-Spieler zur Hand. Schade, denn die Umsetzung an sich ist gut gelungen, die Grafik hübsch. Nnur die quietschende Stimme von Betameche nervt hin und wieder. Dafür gefallen mir aber die vielen Denkaufgaben.

Arthur and the Invisibles seems perfectly content to offer an entirely derivative gameplay experience, but the game dishes out a heavy helping of content that includes the ample storyline and the DVD-quality bonus features. The mostly stellar presentation also means you'll probably be more willing to put up with the game's shortcomings if you enjoyed the film.

Is Arthur & The Minimoys nu het cadeau bij uitstek voor onder de kerstboom? Ja en neen. De game heeft een meer dan goede presentatie, maar de gameplay kan veel beter. Ook het feit dat je sommige acties drie keer moet herhalen voor je verder kan en dat her en der kunstgrepen zijn toegepast om de levensduur wat te rekken, spreken niet in het voordeel van deze titel. Maar ach, het blijven wel schattige ventjes, die Minimoys...

PlayStation 2Worth Playing
Overall, Arthur and the Invisibles might be worth playing if you really enjoyed the film, or if you're just looking for a casual game that is easy to pick up and just as easy to put down. The title remains mediocre in most categories, and there really isn't anything remarkable here. Unfortunately, the game is plagued by a lingering feeling that this was just another movie cash-in that was rushed through the development effort.

This game is meant for kids, but unfortunately the difficulty level isn’t adapted to them. It’s too hard for young gamers, but too easy for the older ones. As if this all wasn’t annoying enough, the camera perspective is not great at all, even though you can sometimes change it yourself. The graphics are just what is to be expected from a present-day game. Nothing more, nothing less. The plus is for the great music. The sound effects are good too, only their timing isn’t always okay.
