This is a gift idea for the gamer on your list.

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. With drop-in-and-out multiplayer action supporting up to four players on consoles, you and your team of Guardians will work together to protect the hopes, beliefs and imaginations of children all over the world!

Rise of the Guardians is a movie that my kids have been anxiously awaiting to come to dvd.  I have to admit so have I.  Of course once they saw the video game featuring the lead characters they immediately wanted to play it while they waited for the movie to come to dvd.
Now I am always looking for games that all 3 of my kiddos can play together.  The great thing about this game is that up to 4 players can play together.  Another feature is that the players can drop in and out of the game as they choose which is great for my kids when at times they get tired of playing a game.  Also you get to choose which character you get to play from Jack Frost to the "Easter Bunny" ( my fav character). 
Now there is fighting in this game so be hesistant if you do not like those kind of games for the kiddos.  Of course with that said, it is not a blood and gore kind of fighting game.  Also it can be a little challenging at times for younger kids, but luckily for my daughters they have an older brother who will gladly help them LOL! 
All in all I think the game will be great for those who are anxiously awaiting the movie to arrive on dvd since the game is similar to the movie but not completely like it.  So be sure to grab a copy of the game in your favorite format in time for the Holidays since it is sure to be a hot seller.  The Wii version of the game is available online at Amazon.com for $ 32.19 right now.  Unfortunately according to Amazon the game will not get here before Christmas but you can definitely find the game at local stores near you.  So be sure to grab a copy today for the gamer on your list!
