Summary: I got this game for my 8 year old step-son. He loves the goosebumps series and reads them on a daily basis. When he saw they had a DS game he immediately begged for it, but was disappointed once he got it. He may be too advanced for this game, but I really think there just isn't much to it. If your child is used to playing games like Mario Brothers, plants vs. zombie, smash brothers then forget this game! It's selling based on it's reputation for its books.
Summary: My son loves the goosebumps episodes and the haunting hour tv episodes, he just started trying to read the books(he's in first grade) and saw this game in the back of a HorrorLand book. He had to have the game. I finally got it for him and he absolutely loves it. He has no problem playing it (he's 7 years old) and it doesn't scare him. Hope this helps others with their decision to buy or not to buy. I will be buying it for his Wii soon.
