Not a good thing.This game is Not a good example of what a game should be. I first bought this game on the PSP because I am a fan of the book. Later, I rented the PS3 version to see how mush the consoles expanded on the game. Much to me disappointment, the console version is EXACTLY the same as the handheld version. While the story follows the movie (not the books) pretty closely, the gameplay and graphics are really repetitive and boring. Do not buy this game! If you feel like you MUST play it, RENT it first!
