Summary: I found this game to be quite boring. I watched my kids play and they asked if I wanted to try it with them. I played for about five minutes, they got bored and asked if they could quit. They never played it again. It MIGHT be a good game for a little bit of a younger group. My kids are 8-16. I'm not sure though.
Summary: I've played through the Golden Compass video game and I have a review about it that I would like to share for those casual passerbys who are curious. I loved the book series and somewhat enjoyed the movie. + (Pros) = (Neutrals) - (Cons) +Playability, I don't have all these different wiimote or nunchuck twitches to get it to do the right action +Button placement, the controls are simple and easy to remember +Difficulty, The little deception minigames and the symbol...
Summary: Another Bad Game to a good Movie/Book, the controls are bad, the story is lame and it is one of those games oriented to kids but so hard to control that it is impossible for kids to have fun playing it, after an hour or so of listening to my 6 year old son getting frustrated with this thing, we went to the local video game store to trade it for something better, (even a pack of gum is better and more entertaining).
Excerpt: The Nintendo Wii is the newest console by Nintendo and is one of 3 main consoles available in the current generation of video games alongside the Sony PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360.
Summary: Review is for the Wii version: The game itself isn't completely terrible, it just seemed like they rushed it out to cash in on the movie release. Gotta do it I suppose. I would say this would be a good game for the youngest of gamers. It's basically just a walkthrough, as in every time you have to perform an action the game tells you exactly what to do.
