The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian is a great looking title which should thrill younger gamers no end, particularly if they're fans of the film. It's easy to pick up, good fun to play and features some impressive battle scenes which - storyline aside - must be the biggest draw of the movie. There was a time when the only way kids could transport themselves to Narnia would be to bury themselves in the book and use their imagination... now you can do much the same thing with a joypad and widescreen TV. Librarians of the world watch and weep!

Having taken all of the game’s aspects into consideration we have marked The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian quite highly. Purists (read ‘adult gamers’) may find the game not to their expectations; however for its target audience there’s a load of family-friendly fun to be had that is both entertaining and challenging. It’s wet outside and we’re only half-way through the school holidays; why not send the kids on their own personal journey into the land of Narnia?

One final point that should be mentioned is the abundance of treasure chests lying about for this outing. Finding them all can be quite the challenge and the effort will probably force you to replay stages a few times if you take it seriously. That's a great way to extend the play value, but Prince Caspian hardly needs it. The main adventure will last you around 10 hours and the option to play through with a friend means that you'll likely make repeat excursions. With beautiful visuals and solid design that generally falters only for brief moments, this game really is like picking up a pass to Narnia. No wardrobes or mysterious train stations required.

Ein gutes Spiel zu einer mittelmäßigen Filmvorlage, das gibt's wirklich nicht oft. Prinz Kaspian ist sicher nicht so rund wie die Herr-der-Ringe-Umsetzungen, dafür wird Abwechslung im Minutentakt geboten. Ob als wütender Baum oder fechtende Maus, nie streckt Traveller's Tales die Levelabschnitt so lang, bis die recht einfachen Aufgaben nerven. Die Kehrseite des Häppchen-Tempos: Dem Action-Adventure geht viel zu schnell die Puste aus.

While this game can be very slow-paced, it does have good entertainment value. And as tedious as this game is, it can actually get pretty hectic as you defeat armies of soldiers, archers, and larger enemy bosses wearing a good amount of armor. This game is surprisingly good considering it is a licensed package, and anyone who enjoys the Narnia films will be happy to be thrust into the land of Narnia with this game. Just keep in mind the age group it is intended for.

PlayStation 2NZGamer (Jun 25, 2008)
It is certain that this game is more than just the average, rushed-out-to-meet-a-movie-going-crowd title. Traveller’s Tales have put plenty of care into this title and it is sure to please Narnia fans of a younger audience. Even as a 27 year old, I got plenty of enjoyment out of it. Some people will argue this is because I still play with LEGO and collect Marvel figurines, but I’m convinced this is normal behaviour for someone my age. It’s also a surprisingly well presented game for the PS2, offering no frame-rate drops, impressive sound and some fairly sharp graphics despite the amount of bodies on screen at times.

The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian is a gorgeous looking title which should keep younger gamers thrilled to bits, especially if they are fans of the film. It's easy to control, fun to play for up to two players and features some epic battle scenes which capture the spirit of the film, and allow children to transport themselves right into the heart of Narnia.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is one of the few licensed games that I am not ashamed to recommend, especially to fans of the series. It is obvious this game was aimed at a younger demographic, and I have even joked that without the Narnia name this game could have easily obtained cult status with the hardcores. As it is Caspian is a solid purchase for parents looking to give kids a chance to interact with the Narnia universe in an enjoyable atmosphere. The game looks decent, plays surprisingly well and is entertaining enough to even engage casual fans of the series, myself included.

Man merkt dem Spiel, oder vielmehr den Entwicklern deutlich an, dass sie das Spiel erwachsener machen wollten. Mit Massenschlachten und vielen Kämpfen wollte man wohl den Versuch starten, die Zielgruppe auf ein paar Jahre auszuweiten und somit auch größeren Fans die Chance auf ein anspruchsvolles Filmspiel zu geben. Doch leider scheiterte man hier kläglich. Die Schlachten sind eintönig, die Rätsel viel zu einfach und die K.I. viel zu doof. Und wer sich nicht mit der Materie auskennt, hat mangels einer ordentlichen Einführung sowieso keine Chance. Die Filmschnipsel zwischendurch sind zwar eine nette Idee, haben aber weder atmosphärisch noch erzählerisch eine große Wirkung. Entweder ganz oder gar nicht – In diesem Fall dann wohl gar nicht.

Der Kaspische Prinz ist eigentlich ein ganz unterhaltsames Fantasy-Abenteuer für nicht allzu anspruchsvolle Fans der Leinwand- bzw. Buchvorlage. Der Spielverlauf ist simpel, aber abwechslungsreich, die Schauplätze und Schlachten sind hübsch inszeniert, der Koop-Modus durchaus spaßig. Dennoch merkt man dem Titel einfach an, dass die Entwickler wie so oft bei Filmumsetzungen unter Zeitdruck standen, das Spiel rechtzeitig zum Kinostart fertig zu bekommen. Der Umfang ist nicht sonderlich üppig, die Präsentation durchwachsen und die Technik unausgereift. Vor allem Kameraführung, Zielerfassung und Kollisionsabfrage bergen unnötiges Nervpotential. Zudem sind die Kämpfe öde, die Lösung der an sich netten Rätseleinlagen wird euch stets vorgekaut und die Story-Sequenzen sind teils völlig aus dem Zusammenhang gerissen. Wer die Vorlage nicht kennt, weiß oft überhaupt nicht, was los ist.

Having never been a fan of movie based games, (and after playing this still not a fan of movie based games) it’s quite hard to judge this title in terms of recommendation. But what I will say is that if you’re a gamer who has had a bad experience with, or you just don’t enjoy the simplicity of movie based titles, and are questioning on whether this is any different to other run of the mills, then keep looking, this game won’t change your mind. However, if you have seen Narnia: Prince Caspian and really enjoyed the film but thirst for more action, then go ahead this game is probably for you.

Die Chroniken von Narnia – Prinz Kaspian ist besser als so manch anderes „Spiel zum Film“, erreicht aber trotzdem leider nur Mittelmaß. Die Steuerung, die Rätsel und auch die einzelnen Level sind relativ einfach gehalten, bis auf einige wenige Dinge, die sich zwischendurch auf Grund so mancher schwammiger Anweisung als Stolperstein erweisen. Mit ein wenig Nachdenken sind aber die meisten Aufgaben leicht zu lösen und stellen kein größeres Problem da. Der Mehrspieler-Modus ist leider komplett zu vergessen, da euch der zweite Spieler eher behindert als hilft und das Spiel nun mal auf einen Spieler ausgelegt ist, wodurch sehr leicht Langeweile aufkommt. Vor allem auch dadurch, das es keine Möglichkeit gibt, eure Charaktere oder einzelne Fähigkeiten zu verbessern, was dann die Motivation doch sehr leiden lässt. Im Großen und Ganzen ein Spiel für Fans des Films oder Buches, die für einen regnerischen Nachmittag nach einem einmaligen Zeitvertreib suchen.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian would be a good game to let any young fan of the movie try his or her hand at, but it's too simplistic for most core gamers to find enjoyable. Or rather, it would be good if the full context of what you're doing in the game was made more apparent. As it stands it's a game with a solid foundation and good ideas that falls short of its promise.

The swordplay is simple, and dreadfully dull. Even with a level that expands Narnia's fiction past the books and films, the only thing you'll take away from this game is a phobia of locked doors.

Far from being a complete disaster, Prince Caspian for the PS3 has some good moments but they are overshadowed by repetitive gameplay and a poor presentation. Fans of the movie and book will like playing in the land of Narnia but much unlike the two mediums this game makes the story a forgettable experience.

Xbox 360Console Monster (Jul 13, 2008)
Prince Caspian isn't really bad, like many other movie tie-ins, but it does have some major flaws such as the camera and reptitiveness which really let it down. It is definitely not a buy, save your money for something more worth while. It won't take you long at all to plough through and is worth a rent for anyone looking for some easy achievements or just a game to keep their children happy.

Xbox 360VicioJuegos.com (Jul 13, 2008)
En conclusión, El príncipe Caspian es precisamente lo que pretende ser: otro producto de consumo aprovechando el filón de la película. Ni más ni menos. Puede divertir, pero no nos va a ofrecer nada que no hayamos visto antes, sólo la pura funcionalidad justa en cada uno de sus apartados, más o menos bien hecho pero poco estimulante en general. Hay que contar además que el juego es bastante corto, de forma que si eres un fan de la película y realmente quieres jugar con los personajes, tal vez es mejor idea optar por el alquiler, puesto que su precio no lo justifica ni su calidad ni su duración.

PlayStation 3Gaming Age (Jun 06, 2008)
All together, Prince Caspian ends up being a slightly above average romp on home consoles that won't be too challenging for the age group of 13 and above. If you're a huge Narnia fan, and I'm sure those people are out there, then yeah, you'll probably enjoy this. However, it never really excels at being anything other than a simple movie tie in game, and fails to really make the player do much more than go thru the basic gaming motions. If you're looking for something with a bit more meat to it, then Prince Caspian isn't the title for you. A nice, simple game for the younger crowd to be sure, but it won't keep the attention of most of us for long.

To be perfectly blunt, gamers will think they are playing a first or second generation PlayStation 2 game instead of an Xbox 360 game. Unlike all other games on the market this one doesn’t include an option to change the gamma tweaking, and this is unfortunate as this game is really “dark” and hard to distinguish certain things. The character models are decent, but the animations seem to be jerky. The environments look nice but it is hard to make out all of the detail on them due to how dark the game is. The sound for this game doesn’t bode much better. While the soundtrack is nice and full of emotion to drive players, the sound effects are not up to par. They are very generic and boring to listen to.

WindowsComputer Bild Spiele (Jul 02, 2008)
"Die Chroniken von Narnia - Prinz Kaspian von Narnia" gehört definitiv zu den besseren Spielumsetzungen von Kinofilmen, wenn auch leichte Schwächen nicht zu verbergen sind. So fehlt manche spannende Filmszene im Spiel. Auch der Blickwinkel ist nicht immer optimal zum Spielen geeignet. Das Grundsätzliche aber stimmt: der Spielspaß. Trotz mitunter langer Level bietet das Spiel genug Abwechslung, um durchzuhalten, und bringt auch die Stimmung des Kinofilms prima auf Konsole oder Computer, sodass einer Reise nach Narnia nichts entgegensteht. Die wäre ein guter Trip geworden, wenn das Spiel nicht auf etwas schwächeren Rechnern arg in Ruckeln geraten wäre. So bleibt die Note "befriedigend".

Ultimately, this game is really more of an interactive movie - the combat offers next to no challenge and there is very little replay value. A large variety of characters does offer some interest but they are all really the same, with no special moves or anything unique to offer. The best thing I can really say about the game is that it all works and that there were no annoying bugs, but any such misgivings would be unforgivable in such a simplistic game anyway. As always, a kid who liked the film will enjoy playing as their on-screen heroes but the game doesn't have anything more to offer non-fans. If you want a hack-and-slash game, there are better ones out there and if you are lucky you may even see a bit of blood!

WiiCheat Code Central (Jun 03, 2008)
So, while the co-op play is fun, Prince Caspian really isn't anything all that special. It's a boring, repetitive, poorly-done movie cash-in. Not much was expected from it, and when you look at it that way then this game lived up to expectations. Perhaps if you're a big fan of the movie, this game is worth a rental -- other than that, you're really best-served letting Prince Caspian and his cohort of Narnians finish this fight on their own.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian had plenty of potential to withstand for fans, but in the end all it amounted to was another mindless drone in the market of bad movie games. Fans of the series will no doubt enjoy what is given to them, the chance to re-enact your favorite scenes from the movie and control your favorite characters, but there are just too many problems, most notably in the shallow combat that will keep many veteran players away. Prince Caspian is sure fun for any fan or gamer under the age of 13 as it requires no central thinking to complete, but older gamers will find this game’s bland combat too dull to even consider a try.

Prince Caspian had the potential to be an enjoyable game that would even appeal to those who have never seen the film. The missions aren’t too repetitive and the battle levels are fun and exciting. It’s pretty cool to see dozens upon dozens of Narnians and Telmarines duking it out. However, there are just too many exasperating issues with controls and lighting that keep me from recommending it. If you want a great adventure game by Traveller’s Tales, try any of the Lego games. If you’re a fan of the Prince Caspian film, save your money and wait for the DVD/Blu-ray release. I’ll bet they’ll include the extra footage in there.

Nach bekanntem Muster (Film im Kino - Spiel im Laden) erwartet Sie im neuen Narnia-Spiel nicht viel Neues. Bewährte Fastfood-Action-Schnetzelei der Marke Der Herr der Ringe: Die Rückkehr des Königs, gepaart mit anspruchslosen Rätseleinlagen und etliche Filmschnipsel als Zwischensequenzen. Der Koop-Modus macht noch am meisten Spaß. Dabei tummeln sich zwei Spieler vor dem Monitor, wobei derjenige, der mit Tastatur/Maus spielt, im Nachteil ist. Selbst mit Gamepad ist die Steuerung durchwachsen. Nervig ist die schlechte Kameraführung, dafür stimmt die Action.

I like what Traveller’s Tales has done in the past, and wish they could’ve made me care about Prince Caspian. It’s clear that like me, Traveler’s Tales would rather you play something else. Say Lego Indiana Jones for instance. Unless you are an absolute die-hard Narni-ite, this game belongs as far away from your 360 as humanly possible. Somewhere like Japan.

Приговор «Принцу Каспиану» ясен сразу — похоронить на свалке вместе с картриджами «E.T.». Нет ответа только на один вопрос: как сильно надо желать зла человеку, чтобы позвать его на сеанс парного прохождения?

The only reason that Prince Caspian doesn't utterly fail is that it does feature the occasionally interesting puzzle. However, figuring out a clever, well-thought-out solution only made the otherwise forced and repetitive nature of the rest of the game seem that much worse by comparison. You may think that playing games for work is all good and fun, but Prince Caspian is one of those rare titles that make me consider a career change.
