Summary: I bought this for my 4-year-old son as an alternative to all the shooting games. He loves it. You can change the difficulty level. The controls are fairly simple, he picked it up right away. It's even simple enough for me to play with him! However, it is only a one player game. Fun levels that change up objectives.
Summary: This is an adventure game along the lines of Spyro. The game is fun to play but not overly challenging. Deaths are quickly respawned and the game never forces you to replay too much, which is nice. There are many levels with things to collect and cheats to unlock. There is jumping, climbing, swinging, shooting and bug fighting. Each level has a few puzzles to solve. There is also a free-roaming world to explore. The game has about 20-30hrs of play.
Summary: I was skeptical, but curious. I never play movie-based games, but I am really glad I picked this one up. Children will like it because the goals are reasonably obtainable, and the game isn't overtly punitive for mistakes. For example, if you fall off of a cliff 5 times, you aren't thrown out of the mission. Also, there are lots of checkpoints during the missions making it easier to slowly work through the episode.
Summary: I will admit that I liked the movie and am on a quest to get related items before they are discontinued. If this was not a "Where the Wild Things Are" item, I would have passed over this. The game is simple. Playing as Max, you'll navigate the island on a set path by running, jumping, and climbing, squish bugs with your scepter, collect items for the Wild Things, and unlocking secret places in the Village.
Summary: A nice game fun, action and also difficult( 3 diffrents mode easy medium hard) in a good way. Like the book,the wild thing look cute,we are only female there have play this game so cant say anything about how it will be for boys!
Conclusion: Never thought i'd say this but Where The Wild Things Are on PS3 is one helluva good game! Amazing art direction, level design and atmosphereic music very reminiscent of Team ICO games. Its also good to see a childrens game that's not insulting to the target demographic.
