Lots of different action

  • Summary: There are many different challenges with this game. They range from fighting, skills with the controls and mental challenges. I bought it for my 8 year old daughter, but I seem to play it mostly. When I get to a point where I can't get further she has the skills with the controls to get me through. I am usually better with the mental skills. All in all it is very enjoyable, even though sometimes frustrating. Well worth the money.

Good

  • Summary: I bought this game from Amazon and it was really cheap so I didn't expect much from the game. However, it turned out to be great fun and it used alot of the features of the Wii. It is definetly a game for hardcore gamers, but I think it would be ideal for someone aged from 5-11, because the game requires you to use your head at some parts. It also has quite a few cut-scenes of clips from the movie (starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig).

Lyra Belacqua travels around in this mysteroius world, where her uncle, Lord Asriel, has been imprisoned, her best ...

  • Cons: can only save the game at the end of each level

  • Excerpt: Fairly good game, particularly for younger gamers, my 8 yr old prefered this to zelda. Wonder if it's better if youv'e seen the film first.

  • Conclusion: really good game, easy controls, interesting levels, lots to do. The only thing I dont like is that it only saves after every level which can be a bnit annoying as you end up repeating your self. Otherwise good and would advise buying.

Really good game

  • Conclusion: This game is really good! Plus the price is good. I found the controls to be strange, but you get use to them quite easy. This game is more for a person who enjoys adventure games, this game is for adults as well as children. Its got some real challenging parts in which, if like me, will annoy ya a bit!!!! lol The only thing I found wierd was the ending, I found it to be in complete, It didnt feel like an ending, which was a let down for me!

Pleasantly surprised

  • Summary: My son bought this for himself after seeing the film. Usually I would steer away from games of films as they disappoint! BUT this game definately didn't do that! I personally wasn't impressed by the film and therefore would say the game is 100% better than it! The control were easy to master and game play was interesting and moved at a good pace.
