My review of the Golden Compass video game.

  • 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...

  • Conclusion: this game is ok, there is not much point to it but the levels are a bit challenging and it makes the time pass so overall its ok.

A bad game...but a lot of fun!!

  • Summary: By most people's standards, the Golden Compass on Wii would be described as a horrible game, but personally I think it's not all that bad. (Granted, i got it for a budget price...) Firstly, the graphics are awful, like a blurry 1st-generation ps2 game, and there is absoloutely no excuse for that. The environments are acceptable at some points in the game, but it is the expressionless and blocky characters which make the game frustrating to look at.

One for young gamers

  • Summary: This review summarises the views of a 14-year old (who ran out of enjoyment and stopped playing very early) and a more persistent 60-year-old. The game seems to be aimed at 7-10 year-olds without too much gaming experience. The game holds your hand too much, telling you what to do much of the time and which button to press to do it (usually Z), and indicating your route too easily ("I wonder how we get down. What's this - looks like a giant staircase!").
