Good, clean fun and adventure for the whole family!

  • Summary: Not often do I buy games online, but I took a chance with this one because my kids wanted it for Christmas. We have played for hours and are having a ball! It's a role-playing adventure game, with a number of puzzles to solve. There are battles that you have to fight in order to get through the game, and the fighting may be too intense for the youngest of players, but for the most part, it's pretty clean - no blood, no foul language, and the "killed" creatures merely...

An Adventure You Won't Want to Miss Out On!!

  • Summary: I thought this game has a great overall plot to it. It's very similair to the movie as well except there are a few minor changes. I love exploring, and finding all the hidden secrets to the game! It could keep me busy for hours! The only bad thing is there is WAY TOO MUCH fighting. I like adventure games but when it involves constant fighting, I get bored and frustrated easily.

  • Summary: I purchased this game for my wife who usually will not play video games. She loves it as she loves reading the Spiderwick books to our son. Now my wife and son play the game and argue about which direction to go in the game.

  • Summary: I purchased the game after watching the movie with my children and they have not gotten far on the game so far but they are really enjoying it! From a child's stand point it gets the nod!

I really like this game

  • Summary: I'm an adult woman with no children who didn't see the movie but loves puzzle oriented, role-playing games. This game is extremely interesting. I'm still at the beginning (Ch.3) but so far this game is great. I was initially disappointed with the way you interact with objects (point and click Wii remote) but after a few minutes, I began to appreciate the fact that action items are clearly marked. There is so much to do and so many things to remember.

Not bad, fun for younger kids

  • Summary: This game is based upon the movie for the game. The game itself isn't that bad; I had a lot of fun. The graphics weren't bad, the sound was good, they actually showed movie clips, story line followed the books and movie pretty well. The only thing I hated about it was the length. I beat it in five hours, and that was while being stuck on some parts for quite some time.

It is wasn't for that meddling nunchuk...

  • Summary: This is not at all a bad game with the emphasis on finding hidden objects and puzzle solving rather than combat. The controls are poorly described during the introduction. The key is mastering pressing C on the nunchuk (while it points at the screen) and twisting - not pointing - left or right to rotate your viewing angle, and also pointing up and down.

Enjoyable if at times frustrating.

  • Summary: I am unsure if any or most criticism that should be leveled at this game centers mostly on the control system of the wii rather than the game itself. Personally I found certain moves very frustrating repetitive and disappointing in this game. However, I also found many elements of the gameplay exciting and delightful.

A nice little mix of thinking, rushing around, and film-tie-in

  • Summary: Not being a massive console fan, I bought the Wii largely for nephew who is a gameaholic. Whilst buying the unit, we had the chance to get three free games. The kids chose Spiderwick chronicles as one of them - they liked the film you see. The game is tied into the film really cleverly. You play a variety of the characters in the film, one at a time, as the story unfolds.
