WorthPlaying: A Christmas Carol Review

WorthPlaying writes: "Charles Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol" is a piece of literature with which just about everyone worldwide, regardless of religious belief, is pretty familiar. There have been numerous adaptations for TV and film, but it struck me that I couldn't think of another game adaptation of the material up to this point. It's possible that I'm missing an obscure PC title or two, but this DS game, Disney's A Christmas Carol, is probably the first console title involving Ebenezer Scrooge and his fateful encounter with three spirits. This game is based on the Disney film adaptation that came out in theaters last month, but as I played, I found it to be surprisingly faithful to the original source material. The biggest inspiration that this DS title seems to have gotten from the film is the artwork on the box and instruction manual, but other than that, this is pretty much how I remember Dickens' classic." (A Christmas Carol, Nintendo DS) 7.5/10
