A pretty good but far too short game where you get to play as Griffin (the character from the movie who could actually fight) and use the power of a jumper to do battle with the paladins.
TRUTH TO MOVIE
Very little, this game does not follow the plot of the movie and you do not play as the main character from the movie. But lets face it, the main character in the movie (David) wasn't much of a fighter so the movie's plot wouldn't have made much of a game.
Now the combat system looks cool, your character mixes in jumping (teleportation) with mele techniques to create a good fighting style. The problem with controlling it though is that it is far too easy to use and therefore not much fun, with the exception of the occasional special move, you just sit there pressing one button and watch as your character and the game do all the work.
Well for starters, you can teleport, which is always fun. Moreover, you can use the teleport as much as you like, there isn't a power bar or anything. Also, the game has lots of amazing locations to explore and some basic puzzles to solve. The only problem with teleport sytem is that you some times need to point the wii remote with pin-point accuracy, so it would be hard for anybody without a steady hand to use it.
The graphics are actually quite good, your character looks like he does in the movie as do all the NPCs that did appear in the movie. Jumping also looks quite cool and has a good effect, admittedly different to the one used in the movie and less realistic.
Sound is also good quality, all your actions have accurate sound effects and the backfround noise always fit's the scene.
DIFFICULTY AND COMPLEXITY
The game is far too easy for my liking, combat is easy I completed it very quickly. Although this does seem to be quite common with wii games.
BONUSES AND OTHER FEATURES
Erm... not alot. There is not much to do one you have finished the game and no-co-operative mode available.
This game will last you literally no time at all, with no bonuses and it being easy to complete, the gameplay time is very short.
VALUE FOR MONEY
Playing this game was quite fun, however, due to how short a time it lasts, the game does not have good value for money.
The game has very little plot to it and a linear, one level after another, storyline. In short, it fucuses much more on action.
