Nostalgia: Narnia Video Games

Who else remembers the old Narnia video game adaptations of the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian films? I’m sure LWW on the Nintendo DS was the first video game I ever played! Everything about that game; the music, the enemies, the side quests, bring back a lot of memories for me. Just wanted to start this discussion to see who else has a history playing these games!

I own the LWW game for gamecube and the Prince Caspian game for Wii.  While I'm not a huge fan of video games in general, I really wanted these games because of how much I love the movies.  They're both quite good in my opinion, even though the graphics are dated now.  I still play them now and then, but certainly not as much as I used to.

I play those ones from time to time as well! I think I got a PlayStation 2 just so I could play the LWW game for it.

I have LWW for the PS2 and Prince Caspian for the Xbox 360. I haven't played either game in ages, but my younger siblings play one game or the other at once a month. One of my sisters and I played LWW regularly when we were teens, those were fun times. Smile

I've been replaying LWW on PS2 today actually! I'm at the point where I know the levels so well I can finish the game in one sitting in about two hours LOL

I've beaten all of the games but the DS version of Prince Caspian. -I started playing it once then put it down again. It didn't grab my attention. The other games, however, were quite fun.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for the GameCube is probably one of my favorite video games. The drop-in/drop-out two-player system was new to me at the time. I started a game by myself when my brother walked into the room, and I later discovered that he was controlling one of the characters! I was like: "How did you do that?!?!"

I can see why you feel that way about Prince Caspian on DS; the combat system is completely different from LWW and it can be quite time-consuming and sometimes even boring because of the sheer amount of enemies you run into while following a set path. That being said it never seemed to bother me that much during my childhood! I was rather disappointed they never made an Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag-style Dawn Treader game when the film came out, but then again I can’t imagine the movie did too well in the box office.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for the Nintendo DS was the first video game that I actually owned, rather than shared with cousins or other people. 

Although, come to think of it, I don't know if I ever actually got around to beating it. Maybe I'll do that one day...

I remember being disappointed that Prince Caspian for DS was so different than the previous game, though in retrospect it was probably the better game.

I have Prince Caspian for the wii. I remember it was just about impossible to get the grappling hook on one of the pillars in the part where you're stuck in a pit fighting Sopespian (I think it was him anyway). My sister thought it was hilarious that the minotaurs have bald "rat tails" as she called them. I didn't like the gameplay much, but I liked the look of the game. I liked the levels where Telmar is first invading Narnia quite a bit though.

I remember when I visited a friend, she had a Gameboy advance game of the Lion, witch, and the wardrobe. It was a difficult game I remember but I did end up finishing it (I think, I vaguely remember). Oh I miss it. I'm pretty sure I returned the game once I was done though. That memory is so far back in my brain I am unsure if it was a gift or to borrow!
