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.
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.
