My grand-daughter really loves that game... It took her about a day or two to beat it though. Now since she played the game she wants me too buy it. She really the features, the scenery, and everything about the game.

In case nobody else knows, Coraline was a book years before the movie came out. It was written by author Neil Gaiman and was published in 2002. The movie was based on the story, so some of the missions in the game were a little lacking because they came directly from the story's original version. I'm sure when Gaiman wrote the book, he had never planned for it to become an adventure game, so he hadn't planned major action scenes for gamers to survive.

Being a fan of the actual book, (I enjoyed the movie as well) I compared the game to the book, not to other games. In which case, the game was well designed. It followed the story fairly well, captured the relationships between the characters perfectly, and added a few fun games to lighten up the depressing atmosphere Gaiman had provided for this story.

I think the game gave a decent amount of challenge. Truth be told, it's not a game for all you hard core gamers out there. I see it to be more family oriented, (as was the movie) so it shouldn't be judged on a hardcore basis.

So I think it was a good game. The voice acting was superb. The animation was very similar to the movie. Also, the controls were simple and easy to learn. So I say it's worth a rent. But if you do, know that Coraline wasn't planned to be a game when it started.

Glitch

So, after playing through mostly very easy missions and the much a few much more challenging sequence/combination tasks, I hit a glitch at the very end that prevented me from finishing. Frustrating, too easy for adults for most of the game, and too difficult for the kiddies for a few of the challenges. Not my favorite, by any means.
