As with all modern games based on mainstream family-oriented movies, the expectations for The Chronicals of Narnia were low. It’s obvious that Griptonite Games went out of their way to create a title that exceeded those expectations, and for the most part, they succeeded. Half of me wants to reward them with a big juicy 8.0, but the other half feels a 5 would be perfectly adequate. For every new innovation, solid gameplay design, and visual accomplishment, there’s another half-hour of gameplay that seems just like the last. While part of me would be happy to pick up my DS and play The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe right now, the other part would rather be playing Zelda, or any other more-refined adventure game. The only solution in a case like this is to find a balance; six and a half seems just about right.
