    "I’m thrilled Neil Gaiman children’s book Coraline is getting the Nightmare Before Christmas treatment. But I can’t say the same for the video game tie-in.

    Something about these screens just seems too happy to me. No spoilers, but suffice it to say Coraline is not a tale of bright, shiny, happy things. So why does everyone (including Coraline) seem so pleased to be stuck in an alternate reality with buttons for eyes?"


    The game is for the DS,Wii and PS2 is what ya call "a whimsical exploration game that combines puzzle solving, character interaction and item collection with traditional action gameplay" You might not see it in the screens, but good thing they have a Skip button, wonder what that is for.

    The Movie, releases on February 6 while the game releases on January 27.​

    I might watch the movie, but I'm not surprised the game is crap.
