Can’t Sega even be bothered to finish making the game before trying to pawn it off on us? Placeholder graphics, unfinished textures and sloppy physics are just a few of the sadistic treats this game has to offer - and the suck doesn’t stop there. Between a clumsy rendering of the original story and a golden compass minigame that’s about as effective as a magic 8 ball, there is absolutely no good reason to buy The Golden Compass on DS. If you absolutely have to have some videogame representation of Phillip Pullman’s book-turned-movie, check out one of the console tie-ins. At least those graphics are finished.
