    Not much they could do to make this better.

    this game is totally not worth playing

    i have to say that this game has some good spots. The voices are just like the ones in the movie. The goblins can get really really annoying when you are playing. the game i thought pretty much...

    Rated on July 07, 2008 by MeganEC

    This game is very standard when it comes its platforming elements, but the presentation is pretty nice for a movie game

    Alright, I'm going to admit it: I have neither read the book or watched the film as of this review. The Spiderwick Chronicles game was purchased by me for two reasons, one being that I found it on sal...

    This game is very interesting, but it is hard to play even at the easiest settings. I haven't yet finished the game.

    This is a really nice game for fans of the Spiderwick Chronicles series. Naturally, it differs greatly from the books; this is just because it is based more on the movie than anything, and little bits...

    This game is like Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. In my opinion, this is not a good thing.

    Rated on November 27, 2009 by game_fan_003

    After beating this game I was disappointed to find that, like Phantom Hourglass & many other games, there is no epilogue. After beating the final boss, the game saves "from last checkpoint". Unfortuna...
