Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey
16 June 2013
Conclusion: Travelers, take heed. Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey isn't anywhere near as bad as the 8-bit Where's Waldo video game that haunted our childhoods way back when. In its own way, it's charming and fun—but don't expect to embark on a wild quest. Waldo is what he is, which makes him good company for a couple of hours, but not much longer.
Summary: Is Where’s Waldo? The Fantastic Journey the best Waldo game I’ve ever played by leaps and bounds? Yes. Is it extremely loyal to the Martin Handford’s classic book of the same name? Yes. Should you buy it? Well, that’s a question not so easily answered. For the most part the developers have done well within the limitations imposed on them, but the DS just isn’t well suited to Waldo, and ultimately the game doesn’t offer anything that the original book doesn’t do better.
Conclusion: Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey looks and feels like an authentic piece of Waldo merchandise; not throwaway shovelware. Fans of the book series will definitely want to have a go at it, but everyone else should steer clear due to the title's short length.
