GameInformer gives 3.25/10 to PS3, 360 and 7/10 Wii version of The Golden Compass

GameInformer reviews The Golden Compass for PS3, 360 and Wii. They give 3.25/10 to PS3, 360 and 7/10 Wii version while all 3 have the same review and description:

"The alethiometer (also known as the Golden Compass) is a truth-telling apparatus. This device's perplexing design usually requires years of trial and error before a person can learn how to use it properly. Even if you held this mystical gadget in your hands for the first time, and asked it "Is The Golden Compass game worth playing?", its hands would spin vigorously, then one would stop on an icon of a skull, the second would land on a dagger, and the third would highlight a new icon that materializes from the ether showing a picture of a grave that reads "Here rests a fool who played bad games.""

Now thats a real Lazy dev.

The graphics makes my eye bleed. Its worse then PS2!

While I do agree that the screen looks terrible, I must point that it could be from the Wii version because GI used the same pic for all 3 reviews:

There's a 'BUY IT NOW' button just above the rating!

btw. That may well be just a PS2 screen shot on there.. it's the same one for all the reviews.

MK_Red3731d ago

lol good one.

Buy (This 3.25/10 game) now.
"This game also wins the award for worst cat animations of all time " lol, is it worse than that old PC game cat in the valley?

WTF!? The review and points (Below each category in right side of screen) is THE EXACT same. Every negative thing is the same between PS3/360 and Wii review yet PS3/360 gets 3.25 and Wii gets 7!?

And even more strange, all 3 got the 5 in second review/opinion.

Nintendo threatend to fire the reviewer if the Wii version's score was too low and he changed 3.25 to 7 for Wii version... J/K ;)

I think it's type and a mistake in GI's site. Still, it would be fun if this turns to another Kane & Lych scandal.

Capt CHAOS3731d ago

gamesinformer website is just the pants.. Not only do they use the same screenshot for the 360/PS3 and Wii reviews, the review text on the PS3 and 360 are completely identical with no explanation why one scored 7 and the other 3.5.

MK_Red3731d ago

True. Could this become the next controversial review like Kane & Lynch?

PimpHandHappy3731d ago

the PS3 and the 360 version both got 3.5

not sure if u understood this because the title of this post is confusing.

anyway since when was a movie game good. This is what a game looks like when its ported from a Wii

MK_Red3731d ago

PimpHandHappy, we know both PS3 and 360 versions got 3.25. The arguement and thing is about the Wii version which has the same description and review but got 7!
