  • Excerpt: ”Where The Wild Things Are,” a children’s classic by Maurice Sendak, came to life on the big screen last year and despite the difficulty in translating a very short book into a feature film, Warner Bros. wanted to make it into a game, too. Not surprisingly, the interactive version doesn’t have much to do with the book or the movie; developer Griptonite Games had to come up with a new vision.

  • Conclusion: While I’m sure this game won’t be a high priority for those looking for adventure titles like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves or Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Where the Wild Things Are is an enjoyable gaming experience. Sure the developer opted for a different path than that of the book, but it was done to create an enjoyable experience for players of all ages to enjoy. I believe the game to provide and experience left out of the book.

Where the Wild Things Are Review

  • Excerpt: If you were ever a child (and somehow I’m willing to wager that you once were or currently are one), then you’ve likely encountered Maurice Sendak’s award-winning tale, Where the Wild Things Are. Being one of the most acclaimed children’s books of all time, it comes as no surprise that this story of a child’s imagination and anger has been adapted into a Hollywood film. The film, of course, has given rise to a video game… and it’s actually not bad.

  • Summary: While the big screen adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are has taken outrageous liberties with Maurice Sendak’s childrens’ classic, the inevitable spin-off game twists, pulls and mangles the beloved story out of all recognition. Picking up shortly after Max first meets the Wild Things, the story veers off at its own bizarre tangent where stars are falling from the heavens and pounding the island, while evil shadow creatures devour everything they touch.

  • Summary: Where the Wild Things Are er et erketypisk lisensspill hvor man har snekret et plattformspill rundt et konsept som aldri var tiltenkt sjangeren. Med alt det negative jeg har sagt om skulle du kanskje tro at det vanker en lavere karakter enn fire, men tross alt er ikke dette noe direkte dårlig spill.
