"The Golden Compass, based on one of this fall's most anticipated The Lord of the Rings clones, is an action game that's well aware of its incomparable challenge in achieving a film-worthy experience. It doesn't try to be something it's not. Forget the open-world nonsense so many games fail at. Forget the ridiculous missions that try to imitate a movie scenario no one wants to revisit. From the game's point of view, The Golden Compass is about a bear, a girl and her animals. And that's exactly who you'll play as throughout this journey."
