The Golden Compass

  • Excerpt: With every big budget movie there are always some games based upon them. The Golden Compass was no exception and received a game on almost every platform. Most of the time these games based upon movie don’t have a very good reputation, but maybe this game is an exception?

  • Conclusion: Initially, the wide variety of gameplay elements make it seem like there's going to be a lot to do in The Golden Compass. Unfortunately, most of these facets are too repetitive, too frustrating, or too boring to keep anyone's interest, young or old.
  • Pros: You get to play as a giant polar bear.
  • Cons: Lousy timed button-pressing sequences make up the bulk of gameplay, Tedious busywork, Terrible platforming elements are capped by a bad camera and loose controls, Inferior production values.

The Golden Compass UK Review

IGN
7 December 2007
  • Conclusion: The sad inevitability of is that no amount of shoddy design will halt its rise to the upper end of the charts this Christmas. The lazy mix of disparate genres, as well as the clearly rushed execution, earn it a place alongside a long list of movie tie-ins that have a distinct lack of quality.

  • Summary: Det er som med dei fleste andre spel basert på ein eller anna stor film. Det er heilt OK, men aldri stort meir enn det. The Golden Compass har sine klåre høgdepunkt, spesielt når du leikar detektiv og leitar etter forskjellege symbol, men mange av spelets andre sider held dessverre ikkje same nivå.

Der Goldene Kompass

Sega-Universe
23 February 2008
  • Summary: Mit dem liefert wieder Mal eine solide Videospielversion eines Kinofilms ab. Wo schon bei den Matrix-Umsetzungen die Meinungen weit auseinander gingen, ist es bei dem ähnlich. So werden Actionfans die nötigen Actionparts vermissen und bei den vielen langatmigen Gesprächen lieber den Stecker ziehen...
  • Pros:  Action und Rätselsequenzen,  Filmschnipsel aus der Kinovorlage
  • Cons:  Hackige Animationen,  langatmige Gespräche

  • Excerpt: "The Golden Compass on hyvin tyypillinen yritys tehdä peliä, hyvin tyypillisestä ison rahan Hollywood-elokuvasta. Käytän yrityksestä mieluusti nimitystä "interaktiivinen juonitiivistelmä", sillä peliksi tämän b-tuotteen kutsuminen on irvokasta; seuraamiskelvottomaksi silvotun ja raiskatun...
  • Pros: + Aletiometri-alipeli vie ajatukset pois muusta pelistä
  • Cons: - Tarinaa uhrattu pelisuunnittelun vuoksi, - Pelisuunnittelua uhrattu tarinan vuoksi, - Tylsä ja viimeistelemätön, - Turhauttava ja yksitoikkoinen pelata

Game elite
30 December 2007
  • Excerpt: The Golden Compass, eller Den Gyllene Kompassen, baseras på en äventyrsfilm med Nicole Kidman i en av huvudrollerna. Jag har varken sett filmen eller läst böckerna som filmen baseras på.
  • Pros: Musiken, Alethiometern
  • Cons: Ett hafsverk med bland annat fula miljöer, dålig kontroll och dåligt språk

  • Summary: Voor de filmproducenten wordt het een goede gewoonte om rond de kerstperiode enkele kinder- en jeugfilms te lanceren. Dit jaar kunnen papa en mama met de kids richting bioscoop om The Golden Compass te gaan bekijken, een degelijke film volgens onze reviewer van dienst.
  • Pros: Volgt de film
  • Cons: Te makkelijk, Bugs, Afwerking
