Just like the book!
28 December 2011
Summary: I enjoyed playing the game. It reminds me of the book, except that there are a couple of levels you can choose from in regards to difficult. I played it on easy and intend to go back and play it on the harder level. There are some timed portions of the game that can be a little more challenging.
Summary: My two girls (ages 6 & 9) played this for about an hour or so before they got bored with it. The split screen mode for 2 players is okay but my girls got tired of having to scroll everywhere. You can keep it on the easy mode where there is no scrolling but then it will take about a second to find the next object. This would have been a hundred times better if they kept one screen and allowed the players to point at the object, kind of like the book.
Summary: Bought this for my hubby's birthday and he loved the game, only bad thing was that he finished it completely in a very short time. The graphics are cool for any real Where's Waldo fanatic and my 6 yr old daughter enjoyed playing it too.
Summary: decent game, but it's really more for a short round of fun. 2 players maximum. pretty much like the book, just in electronic form. gotta scroll the page manaually for the whole picture, so you can't see it all within the screen (for normal difficulty).
Summary: If you and your kids enjoy the books you will enjoy the game. We get the books from the library and they are not always in. Now we can find Waldo at our house anytime and there are more choices.
Summary: The WII game is ok but I would suggest renting it or buying it used. There's not too much to the game besides a dozen or so 'pages' where you find Waldo and his friends, special objects, and enemies. There is also compare games (what's different between two pictures) and identify where a small picture clip is on the mural.
Summary: I think this should cost $15 or less. At almost $30, it's way overpriced! This review is specifically for the wii version. There are only 12 scenes and they're taken from the books. Since it's subtitled "The fantastic Journey", I believe the scenes are all from "The Fantastic Journey" book--but I'm not sure on that. Yes, there is some animation and the game does speak most things so it works for kids who can't read.
