The Golden Compass (Wii) Review

Cubed³
21 December 2007
  • Summary: Based on the film that is based on the book of a different name, The Golden Compass videogame is, much like a lot of videogames based on books and or films, very generic. So generic in fact, that somehow in creating this game the developers have managed to snatch out every inch of magic and...

  • Excerpt: Sega, the war is over. You're not making consoles anymore. There's no reason to try and destabilise Nintendo's success by bending over and farting this wretched game in the Wii's general direction, hoping it will somehow trip the console up and drive disgusted Wii owners to the Dreamcast.

  • Excerpt: Lisenssipelit eivät yleensä ole kovinkaan kaunista katseltavaa. Vähällä vaivalla ulos puserretut jöötit yrittävät rahastaa nopeasti kuumilla elokuvien nimillä ja paikata näin firmojen ailahtelevia talouksia.

  • Excerpt: Vinterens tradition om at “filmatisere-en-eventyr-klassiker-på-bogform” er i år faldet på Det Gyldne Kompas af Philip Pullman. Og ifølge “same procedure as least year” skal filmen og bogen også udkomme på spil. Til DS’en er det ingen undtagelse.

The Golden Compass

Level 7
20 December 2007
  • Summary: Daniel Craig och Nicole Kidman är båda med i vinterns stora familjeäventyr på bio. The Golden Compass är dessutom den typ av film som innebär överföring till spelvärlden. Den stora sågen kommer automatiskt med i brevlådan samtidigt som spelet.
  • Pros: Underbar musik, Vissa inslag av bra spelkontroll
  • Cons: Segt, Föråldrad grafik, Mestadels dålig kontroll

  • Excerpt: Lord of the Rings-filmene har sammen med Harry Potter-fænomenet åbnet dørene for en masse Hollywood-filmatiseringer af eventyrfilm. The Golden Compass er nyeste af slagsen, så vi kigger nærmere på Wii-spillet baseret på filmen.

The Golden Compass

10 December 2007
  • Conclusion: Förmodligen var det Narnia-rullens oerhörda framgångar (vilket i sin tur möjligen berodde på Sagan om ringen-rullarnas framgångar, men det är en annan historia) som gjorde att New Line Cinema ville ha ännu ett svulstigt fantasyäventyr baserade på klassiska äventyrsböcker.
