The Golden Compass
It's bad enough that it's a movie tie-in; the fact that it's broken makes it even more insulting

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.
