Coraline, also known as Coraline: The Game and Coraline: An Adventure Too Weird for Words, is an adventure game based on the film of the same name. It was released on January 27, 2009, in close proximity to the film's theatrical release. It was released on the PlayStation 2, Wii and Nintendo DS. The game was planned to be on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable but were canceled due to negative reviews.
The game's score was composed and produced by Mark Watters. The score was recorded and mixed by Tim Bryson at Robert Irving Studios (based in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles) and Watter Music (based in Chatsworth, Los Angeles). The only three actors to reprise their roles from the film are Dakota Fanning as Coraline, Keith David as the Cat and Robert Bailey, Jr. as Wyborn "Wybie" Lovat. The remaining roles are occupied by voice actors Kath Soucie, Amanda Troop, J. B. Blanc, Susanne Blakeslee and Dave Foquette.
Unlike the critically acclaimed film, the game has received mostly negative reviews. IGN gave the game a 2.5 out of 10 for the Wii and PS2 versions. Common Sense Media gave the game 2/5 stars based on 9 reviews, most of those reviews saying that the game is too hard even for adults and it seemed incomplete.
