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: My son saved up his money and was so excited for this game to come out. He is 9 years old and was able to pass the entire game in less than one day. After spending $30 of his own money he was extremely upset. As far as game play goes he really did enjoy the game and was having fun while it lasted. However, there are only 4 levels which was quite a shock considering the price. Ultimately it was a big disappointment and I wish we could have known before spending the money.
Summary: My daughter just loves Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place. She purchased the DS game this afternoon out of town. She started playing it this evening, and within an hour was done the entire game (4or5 levels). She actually got very sad, and cried. She said, Is that all there is???". Anyhow, to me as a parent I believe for the $20.00 cost she indeed did not get what she was entitled to. This would be a good "Demo" that would be totally free for download off any site.
Summary: This was an extremely fun game for my 7 year old. I had to help her out in some parts of the game, but we still had a good time. However, the game is only five or 6 stages long. She was very upset when the credits started rolling and asked what was wrong with her game. I did not know until I did some research and found that she had completed the whole game. This game is not worth the price!!! They should only charge 9.99 for such a short experience.
Summary: This game is not worth $30 and I'm sorry if you spent your money on it. I rented it from Blockbuster a few days ago, and after reading reviews on IGN and Amazon I had already expected it to be...well, not good. But I like the show, so I figured I'd check it out. The reviews were right. It's boring and way too short. The characters have to do a lot of walking, which I guess is done to try to make the game seem longer.
Walk walk walk... when do I get to do something fun?!

Summary: The main issues I have with the official Waverly Place game are two-fold. Challenge details are often ambiguous, and your character often has to walk from one side of the game world to the other, and back again, just to complete a challenge. I am supposed to be a WIZARD... why am I walking for five minutes straight, when on the TV show, a wave of the wand gets you anywhere?
Summary: When I recieved this for Christmas, I was very happy. I immediately opened it and entered the world of Alex, Max and Justin Russo. As a great fan of Harry Potter games Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix (GBA) , I found the prospect of casting spells in a slightly different way brilliant. By Boxing Day, it was over.
