Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock Review

 

The Eternity Clock is a simple platformer rife with tacky bugs, abrasive puzzles, and timey-wimey guff.

Great voice acting from Matt Smith ; Co-op mode is fun

Sadistic checkpoints ; Buggy ; Forgettable take on a Doctor Who story

Given Doctor Who's long-established position as Saturday-evening staple it's not surprising that recently there have been several attempts to adapt the Time Lord's adventures, the combination of time travel and the Doctor's dexterous approach to a...

Games Xtreme takes a look at Doctor Who: the Eternity Clock

The PS3 has a good solid Doctor Who game; it is a pity it's not on the 360 however. It is a good game, fans should like it.

Unless they make a game of Sherlock. That would be awesome. Wouldn’t it?

Maybe that will be enough for some to get over The Eternity Clock's numerous problems, but it could have been so much better. The few times banter clicks between the Doctor and River it clicks so well that you don't care that they're side-scrolling...

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock has all the ingredients of the well loved TV series: the current Doctor himself, Matt Smith, on voice and motion capture duties, witty dialogue and a cerebral side, though they did largely forget to put in the ingredients...

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock isn’t completely without merit and when things are working as they should there’s the occasional glimmer of a better game, but all too often it’s hidden behind frustrating technical and design deficiencies, leaving it as...

Dr Who and the Eternity Clock is a monumental disappointment.

Lots of Dr Who fan service

Heaps of technical problems ; Simplistic and restrictive ; Terrible design

Dr Who and the Eternity Clock is a monumental disappointment. What's been slated as the first mature Doctor Who game is actually a frustrating, dated example of how not to make a game of its genre. An excellent comprehension of the license is...

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock - PS3 Review

 

And yet... there’s an undeniable charm to the Eternity Clock. Matt Smith & Alex Kingston’s voice-overs and charming script are enjoyable for any fan of the eleventh Doctor’s adventures. Facing off against the Doctor’s adversaries is a novelty, even if...

Keep the Season Seven blues away.

Characters and writing stay true to the original material. Puzzles provide a fun deviation from otherwise boring platforming mechanics

Limited by its linear levels. Levels feel repetitive and buggy. Not suited towards a larger console audience. Does not hold much appeal to a wider audience

Lackluster
