Summary: Out of the 12 stars given to this review so far, there are as many 1 star reviews as there are 5 star reviews; 3. A quarter of the reviews so far are one star reviews. These are not good ratios for any product on an amazon review. Optimally the 5 star reviews should overwhelm the 1 star reviews. However, I wish I could give this video game 7 stars or more. This is different than other video games which are autogenerated pixillated computer images.
Summary: My eight year old grandson asked for this game to play on his Nintendo DS. As the title says, he likes it, and that's all that matters to me. He popped it into his DS, and it made him happy! He likes the Waldo stuff.
Summary: The game is too easy to solve. I solved it in 2 hours. And i mean all of it every extra and everything. There is not alot of content. It is overkill and repetitious on going back to the same places over and over again. Just don't wast your money the books are better.
Summary: It is a great game in theory but I just spent $[...] for one short evening of play. BOO. It was a fun blast-from-the-past with the waldo pictures but it was not hard at all and I went through the whole game in a few short hours. BORING! Don't spend the money.
Wheres Waldo? Why there he is, right in your face.

Summary: This game does not work well at all on a D.S. Not the way they have designed this game anyway. Remember when you'd open a Waldo book and there was two big pages of a land drawn out with all this goofy stuff happening... well, how do you put such a big picture layout on such a small screen? By doing it section by section :( You have to find Waldo, Wizard and Wendy, then find a bunch of other things on the map.
Summary: I totally beat this game in about 3 hours.. but I enjoyed it! I liked how you can zoom in and the slight animation of the some of the scenes.. it also had some other challenges that were entertaining and fun..
Summary: If you consider this game I highly recommend waiting until it goes down to about $10 or less. I used to love the books, and was pretty excited to see they made a game, but this was very disappointing. It started out fun, but it was way to easy. I beat the game in about an hour on Normal mode. I expected a bit more out of it.
