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.
Summary: As appears evident from previous reviews, this game fails to achieve a balance between challenge for older kids and ease of use for younger kids. There is a TON of reading, which made it impossible for my first grader to play this game on her own. Essentially, you as the adult will end up reading/playing a significant portion of the game. There is a relatively low level of reward for all the work you need to put into finding objects.
Summary: A friend of ours bought it for our 6 year old daughter. My daughter enjoyed it but had difficulty reading everything so I would help her. She ultimately had me playing the entire game and I beat it in under 6 hours. Of course, I am 31 years old but even that there were only 4 levels. Alot of money for not alot of game.
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.
