Excerpt: My niece likes the iCarly television show on Nickelodeon. I was interested in the Wii game to see how good it was. Television based games have not had the best track record. In fact too often developers (editor: and publishers) throw something together with a known name on it. So I went into iCarly expecting the worst. Activision has surprised me with this Wii game. It is way more fun than I was expecting.
Summary: Parents need to know that this collection of frantic, intentionally silly microgames, is housed within the framework of a mostly text-driven story. There's almost as much time spent simply watching the progression of the story as there is playing the games. These games, which are supposed to be Web videos shown on Carly's program, revolve around behavior some parents will find inappropriate, such as prank calls and vandalizing posters.
