+ Ingot power-ups are well-done.
+ Audio tours are a neat idea, and educational.
+ Follows the movie plotline well enough.
+ Puzzles are simple, but entertaining, and never frustrating.

- Repetitive voice-acting.
- Platforming is a bit stiff.
- Some of the more interesting power-ups and abilities aren't used as often as they could be
