Golden Compass (Xbox 360)

The Review Busters
23 March 2009
  • Conclusion: After playing this game I really want to forget about Sega, but they did make the Dreamcast after all. Shiny and Sega have made a perfect example of a piss poor movie based video game; it sucks from start to finish.

  • Conclusion: What you have to actually do is keep playing until you get the "CHECKPOINT" dialog box. When you first start the game, it tells you something about "this game has an auto-save. Do not remove your storage device...", so WHY wouldn't it auto-save after getting a collectible?

  • Excerpt: I am walking on eggshells while I review The Golden Compass on the Nintendo DS. This E10+ rated video game is the most controversial topic of the entire year (editor: 2007) that Family Friendly Gaming has tackled.

  • Conclusion: DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. I can’t say it any plainer than that, if you are after points then that’s one thing but otherwise don’t waste your cash. The fact that this was the tenth best selling game (over all formats) of 2007 makes me die a little inside.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Another movie based video game and yet another crappie effort going down the drain. I actually started expecting the best when it comes to movie related videogames after playing games such the bee movie game.

Expert Review

GameSpot
11 December 2007
  • Summary: The Golden Compass for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owes a lot to 2005's The Chronicles of Narnia. Like Narnia, it is a game based on a film based on a fantasy novel, and it even goes so far as to summarily lift hunks of gameplay directly from the older title.
  • Pros: You get to play as a giant polar bear
  • Cons: Lousy timed button-pressing sequences make up the bulk of gameplay, Tedious busywork, Terrible platforming elements are capped by a bad camera and loose controls, Inferior production values

5 September 2009
  • Summary: liefert nach den Matrix Umsetzungen auch eine solide Videospielversion des Kinofilms ab. Aber Vorsicht: Wer nach einem tiefgründigen Action-Adventure oder Actiontitel a la sucht ist hier definitiv falsch.
  • Pros:  Action und Rätselsequenzen,  Filmschnipsel aus der Kinovorlage
  • Cons:  Hackige Animationen,  langatmige Gespräche
