Carl Williams writes, "Movie tie-in games are usually in one of two camps. They either suck or they are great. There is no real middle ground with licensed games in general, especially movie tie-ins. Now, Jumanji The Mobile Game could have easily been an endless running game. I fully expected it. I was prepared to tear it a new one in a review if it was and if it was not simply spectacular. By the way, I am not a fan of endless running games. I am glad to say though, Jumanji The Mobile Game is not an endless running game, instead the developers went a different direction here and created a board game. The only other genre that a movie like Jumanji would lend itself to with any degree of success."
