  • Excerpt: I bought this game following the release and watching of the film at the cinema. I have also subsequently read the book, and I feel that the game does closely follow the storyline, although rather vaguely.

  • Pros: good game with clips of film on

  • 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.

  • Summary: Developed by Shiny Entertainment, this Sega published movie tie-in attempts to envelop you in the world of the highly successful books. But can the game escape the usual brush movie tie-ins are tarred with?

  • Excerpt: Personally, I am a great fan of the book "The Golden Compass", also known as "Northern Lights" in the United Kingdom. When I saw the film, I was disappointed with it, like many other fans. Even so, something drove me to buy the Wii game, and I'm glad to have made that choice.
  • Pros: Good gameplay, suitable for everyone, full 3D worlds
  • Cons: Repetitive music, graphics downgraded, loading times

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.
