The Polar Express


gcg0255 - Developed by Blue Tongue Entertainment Pty, Ltd., and Published by THQ Inc., "The Polar Express" was released for the Nintendo GameCube System (GCN) on November 1, 2004. This video game version of The Polar Express is based on the 2004 holiday season feature film, which follows the story of Chris Van Allsburg's children's book. Players board the title train for a ride to the North Pole to meet Santa himself. Along the way, they'll hunt for lost presents, solve puzzles, play mini-games, and meet characters like the Girl Know-It-All, the Lonely Boy, Smokey and Steamer, and Santa's elves. Unlike in the movie, Ebeneezer Scrooge is the main villain who plans to keep the children from believing in Santa Claus by stealing their tickets and having them thrown off the train so they would never reach the North Pole. The game is broken down into six chapters, giving the player the opportunity to explore areas like the train, the North Pole, and more. The player controls a young boy in each of the 6 chapters. The game also contains puzzle-solving as well as some minigame-styled elements. In addition to the train itself, platform-style exploration and collecting challenges also await in the game's other main 3D "chapter" levels, such as the North Pole. The almost real look of the game's three-dimensional characters and environments follows the style of the film, inspired by Van Allsburg's illustrations. Preowned in excellent condition, includes Case, cover art, Game disk, Instruction Manual and Nintendo insert.
