Summary: I ordered this game a while ago for my 5 year old. Even though both of my girls (ages 5 & 6) watch Wizards of Waverly place on tv and love it, i think the game was a little to old for them. They couldnt really understand what they were supposed to do without help from an adult and after a few weeks of play it ended up being just another game in the bottom of the box.
Summary: I definately recommend this for a youngster who is older than my daughter who is 6. There is an exorbidante amount of reading. Wish the game would talk to the kids as well as having the instructions written out for them on the screen. We do not play this very much because I have to sit there with her the entire time reading the instructions to her while she plays. Wizards is one of her favorite shows and I was hoping she would really enjoy this game.
Summary: At first this was a great game, but then I noticed its basically walking around and doing too easy or too hard games and after its over, you cant even start over and do it again, you're just left with the mini games, so I just returned it to the store. So basically, you have fun (sometimes), groan (alot), and explore (which is probably the best part), and then give up on it.
Summary: I liked this game when I played it, but after a while, it gets boring. And it's really short, I finished it in about 2 days. I would have done it quicker but I forgot to save and had to start all over. I think kids over 9 would find it boring. I think 6 year olds would enjoy the game the most, but they would need help from adults sometimes because you have to read in parts of the game.
Summary: I bought this for my 5 year old without doing any research. I wish I would have because it requires a lot of reading. It also has a lot of walking around. I tried to walk my daughter through the game, but it was hard to understand exactly what to do. Even if she could read I don't think she would enjoy this game. I really like the tv show. I wish they could have come up with a better game.
