About the Game
Let your imagination soar in Rise of the Guardians: The Video Game as you play as one of the classic childhood legends, including: North (aka Santa Claus), Tooth (aka the Tooth Fairy), Bunnymund (aka the Easter Bunny), Sandman, and Jack Frost. In this action-packed adventure game, each Guardian has their own set of upgradable and extraordinary abilities that will help you take on the evil spirit "Pitch" and his infectious nightmares.

Along the way, you'll unlock new powers and spellbinding special moves that will increase your character's strength and skills throughout the game, plus you can unleash cool team attacks with your fellow heroes.

My Take on the Game
This was a ton of fun and with the fact that you get to choose your character (based on the movie characters) my daughter and I had a blast. The game had great graphics and was interactive and engaging. I was impressed also with the overall story itself as it did follow a similar premise to the movie, but was also a bit different. I loved the differing areas in which you play this game and the creators have done a great job at creating an internal world that draws you into the game further. It does take a little bit to get used to the overall controls of the game, but once you do get ready for a fun game that will keep you entertained for a long time!
