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.
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.
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.
