Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Positives:
The plot is brilliant, the writing is great, the acting is marvellous, the graphics are orgasmic and the comedy is genius.

Negatives:
A monkey could program a game more competently. This game is RIDDLED with glitches and bugs. River failing to respond, characters slipping through walls, autosaves and trophies causing the game to crash... And just now, I got killed by a Dalek and respawned at the start of the level again but the elevator I had to use failed to return to its default position - so I was permanently stuck! I couldn't even get another Dalek to turn around and shoot me dead - I had to wait five minutes while the timer counted down. I can stand losing because of my own ability, but not due to poor programming. This game could have been AMAZING if the programmers had done a better job. I'd love to know how the BETA testers actually went on. I bet they were either a bunch of yes-men, or were entirely ignored before release.

Final say:
Don't waste your money. Watch someone else play it on YouTube and treat it like watching an episode of Doctor Who. As an instalment in the series, it's fantastic. As a game, it's awful. The glitches and bugs are more frustrating than the game is entertaining. Sorry, Doctor Who team, but you failed as hard on this as you did with the final Adventure Games instalment. Try harder next time, please.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Poo 25 May 2012

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
...................WARNING THIS GAME IS £14 FULL PRICE ON THE PLAYSTATION STORE.................
.................AND £15 BLU RAY VERSION WHEN I BOUGHT FROM AMAZON DIRECTLY ................

let me begin I'm a huge dr who fan since the 70's and I was so looking forward to this game.
things on youtube and press releases from the bbc and supermassive games made this game look desirable....so against my better judgment I risked a purchase from amazon.
(all doctor who games in the past have been poor)
I should have stuck to my instincts as this game is only marginally above the tat released on Nintendo's systems over the past few years.

1.......... the graphics look great yet the 3d gameplay is only to switch camera views.
Nothing wrong with 2d platforming as many a great game it has spawned EG:Mario,Sonic to name a couple.
But this left to right only gameplay is illogical considering you are forced to shimmy a pipe rather than just walk a direct path set out in front of you to get to a other side of the screen which seems stupid for the sake of a climbing bit and because the path goes round the background yet other levels it will follow the same easier paths?

2...........the controls are clumsy as if on roller skates.....it seems to be jittery at the best of times often leading to peril or a missed jump,you will overcome this after a bit.

3.........the puzzles are basic and repeat themselves over and over again......all 6 off them if memory serves me right.
And they will frustrate many a gamer with strict time limits not because they are hard but some need to be done very quickly or result in death.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, Disappointing length 13 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Overall it is a great game, with a good story line, but it wasn't what i expected, the layout is 2D not a 3D environment, also expected more action than there was. The two player option selection is brilliant, and you both have a role to play there is no lead player, but you can often end up waiting for a while for the other person to complete their task when you both end up in separate places. And the puzzles are brilliant fun, and a tricky enough to enjoy but also get frustrated.
I would reccommened this game if you like Little Big Planet

2.0 out of 5 stars Even more wobbly than the original series' sets! 14 Jun 2012
By Jon
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a huge fan of Doctor Who, both new and old. Let's just get that out of the way first shall we? But even as a fan, I cannot recommend this game.

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is not a fun game. In fact I would describe this game as being a chore to play. The only motivation I had to continue playing was the naive hope that reaching the end goal would somehow yield a reward far greater than the experience I was having at the time. It never did.

The presentation is quite frankly bizarre. Eternity Clock presents you with a three-dimensional world but only allows the Doctor and River Song to move on a two-dimensional plane... meaning that you can never explore the world beyond the confines of your current, very linear path. This goes against everything Doctor Who is about. It also makes no sense in the context of the game when the Doctor must climb ladders and pipes to overcome obstacles when a perfectly serviceable set of stairs lies in the background, just beyond the player's reach. Infuriating!

The gameplay is frantic and often involves a lot of running, a Doctor Who staple. The Doctor can wave his Sonic Screwdriver around with reckless abandon and receive messages on his psychic paper. River Song has her trusty blaster and hallucinogenic lipstick, the latter is used to seduce guards into opening electronic doors for the most part. It's just a shame that no one told the developers that 2D aiming controls don't work in what is essentially a 3D space. Between the running and sonicing/shooting, there are puzzles but only a few, mind you. You will find yourself playing the same few minigames over and over again just to progress and frankly it becomes more than a little tedious.
