Where The Wild Things Are (Wii) Review

Vooks
4 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Ahh, another summer holiday period, another movie targeted towards a wider audience. And of course, with that, yet another tie-in video game to go with the film, which releases this week in Australia. Where The Wild Things Are is the apparently eagerly awaited adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s extremely popular children’s book of the same name.

All-new adventure story is fascinating but edgy.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Where the Wild Things Are is based on both the book and the movie, but that it has its own unique storyline. Kids direct the intrepid but angry Max as he explores the island of where the Wild Things monsters live. Kids can release some of Max's anger by thwacking things in the environment like bee hives, gooey monsters, and flower bushes; but they can also direct their aggression at the Wild Thing monsters.

Where the Wild Things Are Review

Cheat Code Central
14 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Where the Wild Things Are is, in the span of just a few, short hours, a grand adventure. In spite of an obnoxious amount of repetition related to one specific combat sequence, the game inspires a host of powerful emotions. Once you complete the story, you can go back and redo individual missions, either to collect hidden items or simply to revisit your favorite levels.

  • Excerpt: Alors que le long-métrage d'animation Max et les Maximonstres tente courageusement de se faire une place à l'ombre du colossal Avatar dans les salles de cinéma, son adaptation vidéoludique essaie de son côté de survivre au raz de marée des jeux de Noël. A-t-elle une chance d'y parvenir ?
