Final Breakdown


The gameplay is reasonably tight, though heavy on button-mashing.


The graphics aren't perfect, but they do a very good job of illustrating the fairy-tale world, and rarely is the camera a problem. 

Sound and music:

None of the music comes from the movies, the voice acting is horrid with bad impersonations, and the overuse of catch phrases in combat will have adults running from the room to get away.

AI and Difficulty:

What do you expect from a game aimed towards small children?

Controls and Interface:

Best controls are to be found on Gamecube, worst on Xbox - the Gamecube is just designed to handle the sort of abuse that repeated play of this game is going to give to the controller.


If you have small children, they'll love it. Adults trying to play through, however, will hate it.
