Reviews and Problems with Coraline

Showing 1-4 of 4

Creepy, sloppily made game for devoted movie fans only.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that the gameplay seems unfinished and haphazard. Some puzzles are too hard even for parents. Like the movie, this is a game that is somewhat disturbing. The parents seem more concerned with writing a garden catalog than in listening to young Coraline. When the fantasy world into which Coraline retreats becomes her prison, there is fear and creepiness that sensitive kids might not enjoy. On the other hand, some kids will think it's utterly cool.

  • Excerpt: Name: Coraline Genre: Adventure Platform: Wii, DS, PS2 (Reviewed on Wii) I’m not really sure what I wanted in a Coraline video game. The book, at first, reads like a child’s novel that quickly gets dark and disturbing. The story is fantastic, and the characters are memorable. I haven’t seen the recently released movie, so I’m not sure how the plot has changed in the transition from book to big screen.

  • Excerpt: Wenn uns Filmumsetzungen ins Haus flattern, sinken die Erwartungen automatisch in den Keller. Schuld sind so gut wie alle bisherigen Versoftungen zu Hollywood-Blockbustern, die die Spieler auf der ganzen Welt bis heute gequält haben. Der strikte Zeitplan, das Spiel pünktlich zum Release des Films in die Läden zu bringen, lässt den Entwicklern keinen großen Spielraum, weswegen selten anspruchsvolle Games dabei herauskommen. Ob dieses Vorurteil mit Coraline erfüllt wird?
