Immerse yourself in the magical world of The Golden Compass, the new blockbuster film from the studio behind The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

It is a world where witches fly through frozen skies, giant armoured bears fight to defend their kingdom and where sinister Gobblers kidnap children and carry them to a frozen wasteland. And it is a world of intense danger and amazing adventure for the rebellious Lyra Belacqua...

Her uncle, Lord Asriel, has been imprisoned, her best friend Roger kidnapped and now she must leave the safety of Jordan College to rescue both. Joining Lyra in her mission is her animal daemon, Pan, as well as a giant and powerful polar bear, Iorek, and the mysterious Golden Compass - a truth-telling device that will help lead the way. Together they embark on an epic journey of action, exploration, collaboration and discovery.

Play as the heroes from the film. Embark on a journey into the frozen north as rebellious and headstrong heroine Lyra, who uses her cunning to evade enemies. Or charge forward as her powerful friend and protector, Iorek - a giant armoured polar bear able to overcome any obstacle with his brute strength.

Explore a parallel universe. Immerse yourself in the world of The Golden Compass movie and discover the majestic grandeur of Jordan College, the hustle and bustle of port town Trollesund, or the dark and foreboding research station at Bolvangar. Go beyond the movie with two areas from the His Dark Materials universe exclusive to the game.

    Discover a powerful bond greater than friendship. Experience the collaborative bond between Lyra and her unique animal-companion, Pan, who has the ability to morph into a variety of different creatures to help Lyra solve puzzles and navigate obstacles throughout her perilous journey.

      The Golden Compass will lead the way. Use the truth-telling Golden Compass to solve in-game puzzles and unlock bonus content, allowing you to explore the worlds as seen in the movie.

        Use quick wit to discover and evade. Participate in a variety of themed mini-games to help Lyra gain further information about her journey and avoid confrontation with those that mean her harm.

        Saw this for £10 in the sale, and thought I could not lose. I have read the books and seen the film, so thought this could be fun. I have to say however I was quite dissappointed. The graphics look more like PS2 than next gen, and the game did not seem to flow, very clunky. Maybe the kids might like to play as their heroes from the game, but to be honest it's going to my trade-in pile I am afraid to say.

         a real bargain for 25 pound

        I just finished this game and i thought it was totally awesome. I loved playing through the key events of the film/ book and finding all the symbol meanings and anwering the questions. However if you are not a fan of the film you wont enjoy it much as the graphics arent great and the gameplay is slow and story based mostly turn based. I loved it all though!!!

         Not bad....

        Some things can be a bit repetative but all in all not a bad game especially if your a fan of the books or the movie, some puzzles can get a bit confusing but you do get hooked and want to know whats going to happen next so it does manage to capture you in some shape or form, no real replay value though.
