Summary: Kids' attention spans are sooo small these days! My kids actually play this game every once in a while when they remember they still have it! It's pretty neat that they can create their own objects in the game. The only thing I would change would be that when they are asked to draw a bridge in the game for instance and my silly 7 year old just creates a small spec on the screen for his 'bridge' the game would have been better if it only allowed him to use his said 'spec'...
Summary: Great concept! Just didn't prefer the storyline. Lots of references to being the "Creator" and overall felt amateurish... Because it is hard to draw steadily with the wii remote, it is a little frustrating for my daughter, but she loves the idea of drawing a bridge that she can then cross over and helping various characters along the way.
Summary: We just bought the game and have just started playing it but I think we've played enough to offer a review / and a word of caution. First off, the game looks great, the drawing tool is fun to use (though took a little getting used to). It's a bit tough to draw picture perfect characters and object using the wiimote but the imperfectness of the characters and other objects you draw actually adds to the charm of this game.
Excerpt: This game is the follow up to the Drawn to life game that was only released on the Nintendo DS, so now having completed its transfer to a full gaming console how good is it? This game is a platform game but is actually very different to most of the games out there at the moment and almost reminds me of Rayman due to the characters movement and how the game is laid out.
Pros: Great customizable gameplay that interfaces with the Wii controller well .
Cons: drawing can be hard for some and a few glitches
Excerpt: DRAWN TO LIFE THE NEXT CHAPTER Drawn To Life The Next Chapter is a follow up to the previous game Drawn To Life that was released for the Nintendo DS only. The Next Chapter is available for the Nintendo DS as well as the Nintendo Wii. Drawn To Life The Next Chapter was developed by Planet Moon Studios and published by THQ for the Wii. Drawn To Life is a platform game but its very different in many ways and its one of the first that I have played and actually love.
Pros: Draw your own character and many other objects !
Conclusion: We brought this game for our 6 year old for christmas. She was asking for it after seeing it advertised on the TV. You basically have to draw your 'Hero' to take part in the game and draw bridges, butterflies, ledges, the sun and moon etc that you will see and interact with whilst playing the game.
