On the positive side, this is a competent-looking Wii game, one that benefits greatly from the art direction that has guided the film upon which it's based. The movie was helmed by the same man behind Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, and the heavily stylized character designs translate well to the game. Animations are solid and the environments robust, ably recreating the locations seen in the film. Play is split between the dreary 'real world' of Coraline's life and a far more appealing alternate dimension which is much more vibrant and enticing. With voice acting from the film's actors and a lot of the illustrative edging and textures seen in the film, the game does a good job of maintaining the film's unusual aesthetic.
