GamingUnion.net: "So, what sort of redeeming quality is there in A Christmas Carol? Well, there really isn't any. On a side note of the game being only roughly one hour of boredom, there were also multiple crashes that caused a forced restart of the game. In reality there is probably much more enjoyment to be had in the film, and its runtime is 96 minutes - a whole 30 minutes longer than the game itself. Even taking age groups into consideration, there isn't anything but the exception of the story for kids to learn if they haven't already heard of the novel. Besides, if this game is more of a teaching tool, then it isn't exactly much of a game, or a very good teacher."
