Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3

The Golden Compass is an epic action adventure game that immerses you in the magical parallel world of the $150 million budgeted film from New Line Cinema, the studio behind The Lord of the Rings trilogy. With its AAA cast, including Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig (the new James Bond), the story follows Lyra’s heroic journey from the safety of her home to the dangerous wonders of the North. Armed only with a truth-telling compass, and accompanied by a giant armored polar bear named Iorek, the game takes you on a journey of adventure, exploration, collaboration and discovery.

1.0 out of 5 stars Game is Baaaad...bad as in bad, not good... December 18, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow...graphics are awful for next gen...looks like a ps2 game. Camera is pretty bad. Combat is remedial, repetitive and just plain boring. I can't believe somebody gave this a 5 star rating. Please, don't trust me or the other person...go to a games site and check out a "professional" review...guaranteed to save you money on this. It'll be in the bargain bin before the movie hits dvd. IMHO, you'd be crazy to spend the full sixty bucks on this game. I suppose if you are a hard core fan of the books/movie, then anything with this theme will be desirable to a degree, but if not for the license, this game would be DOA. Actually, it pretty much still is.

1.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Even Consider This a Game August 23, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This is more like watching a trimmed-down, horribly rendered, poorly scripted version of a movie - only it costs more and takes longer!

Gameplay is virtually nonexistent. You don't really do much of anything but guide the characters down short paths, engage in minor button-pressing battles, and press sequences of buttons to manipulate objects for some odd reason. Walking across balance beams is exceptionally slow and tedious.

Most of your time is spent engaged in ridiculous dialogs which cannot progress until you play three or more extremely poor-quality mini games such as "push the balls into a hole", "avoid the balls", "match the symbols" and so on.

Your Pan discovers symbols throughout your journey which make it easier to answer questions using the Alethiometer. Keep the target to the center until a button symbol appears, then press the button and then go through that two more times for the answer to the question to be revealed, allowing you to pass on to the next pointless activity.

Graphics are minimally detailed. Not much to see, and it all looks similar. Enemies include the dude in a tall hat, the dude with antlers on his head, the flamethrower guy in an underwater helmet, the witch, and the bear, maybe one more. Each class of character comes in only one flavor and is barely articulated - it's pathetic.

Audio is the only thing cool about this game, although at points it gets choppy and cuts out on occasion.

Is this what the gaming industry is coming to? What a waste of programmers' time! What a waste of everyone's time, really.

They had it at Wal Mart for $10, so I thought I'd play it through. Absolutely dumb game. I'm not sure how others justify a five star review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift August 8, 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
My grandson had read the Golden Compass books and really liked them and so he asked for this older game for his birthday. I was pleased to find it on Amazon and he was very happy to receive it. I know nothing about games but he said it was very good and that the graphics were great and he loved playing the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expectable March 17, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
With graphics that certainly cannot be considered high-quality, and a plot that does not even follow the movie correctly--let alone the book, this game really was no more and no less than I expected it to be. When it comes to games based off movies, it is rare that you'll find one that is truly good. And seeing how the movie wasn't exactly a smash anyhow, you can only expect the game to be half (at the least) as good as the film. I finished the game within 3 days, it wasn't a challenge for me. And it was absurdly boring, but seeing how I had nothing better to do, I went on and finished it anyway. If you enjoy cheesy, slow-going, and horribly animated video games or are much to young to tell the difference between a good game and a bad game, this is for you. If you like games that are...well, not, then try something else.
