  1. Jumping, fighting and puzzling for young fans of the movie. Most of it is incredibly easy but there's the odd bit of confusion to slow progress.
  2. Poor graphics and simple game-play detract from what could have been a great film-game conversion.

    Extremely poor control of characters on Wii made solving jumping puzzles tedious and unnecessarily hard - destroyed the experience.

Lyra may have a cheesy accent, but she is a pretty lovable protagonist. Beating off wolves with Iorek that just don't quit never gets old. Don't let the rating scare you off. BUY THIS GAME!
