The Golden Compass


Great book. Iffy film. Game from hell

Seeing favorite characters ; Imagining what could have been ; Reading the book instead

Boring levels ; Glaring story inaccuracies ; Wonky controls

This isn't just a severe case of nerd outrage though; this is a distinctly broken game - iffy controls, rubbish bear fights, dull levels and gameplay obsessed with balancing, jumping and the most inane rhythm action ever devised. Why do kiddie games...

The Golden Compass Review for the PC


The curse of the movie license.

Looks awful; Plays worse; Sounds terrible; Plot like a hole in the ground that you dump precious hours of your life into; Inspires homicidal urges in the most patient anglophiles
