Trickey at times, but fun

Summary: This game is a very fun game, I borrowed it from a friend to play, I love it. You can explore the chocolate room, ride the great glass elevator, and see other rooms from the book. 2 times in this game, you can get stuck. But thanks to a little thing called internet, and another smaller thing called search engines, and a microscopic thing called a walkthrough, you can simply read how to beat the game, step by step.
Summary: This may never go down in history as a great game, but my 7 year old loves it. I was hesitant to buy this game with some not so great reviews, but I am glad I did. It is just the right mix of fun and challenge to keep him entertained, but not overwhelm him with difficult levels. He has managed to play this game through by himself for the most part with some occasional adult help. The game is not scary or violent or have a lot of complicated jumps and such.
Summary: It is okay if this game is involved because that is what makes it more challenging and fun. For example, it takes many things to do just to fix one problem. Like any other involved game, it gets tougher and more fun to play. Johnny Depp does not do the voice of Willy Wonka, but he sounds similar to Depp. The graphics for the game are neat, too. I think the kid who plays Charlie also does his voice in this.
Summary: I am a grown man. I have always enjoyed the first Willy Wonka movie. I have yet to see the new movie. But, if it's anything like this game, it's not all that different. A very similar plotline gives us older folks (35) a chance to sort of exist inside the story we grew up with. But, the gameplay experience is much too simplistic for an adult. Shame. The movie's always kind of been for the adults really. I decided to play it with my son.
