Here's my official review :
The game is absolutely AMAZING !!! Very CLEVER !!!
There is a LOT of reading. A lot, did I mention there is a lot of reading. Oh my goodness. If you can get past that, you will love the game.
The game is challenging to a point. There are points that you will be stuck at for a bit, but none the less, you will most likely always prevail. I've played for 2 hours and I'm at 1-4, but I've taken the time to read everything thru since this is my first time and I didn't want to miss anything.
I love the option of pointing the Wii mote at the tv to find hidden doors.
I love the cleverness of the trickery with the puzzles and clues.
I love all the added pixls, items, cards, and recipes (cooking potent items)
To most, this game won't be as challenging as they had wished, but believe me, this game will provide hours of gameplay and even to the person who states this isn't challenging, they will be stuck at some point for a bit of time.
My 6 year old boy played for 2 hours and made it to 1-2. He loved it.
I'm 29 and I will be up till 4 am most likely !
Overall this game ROCKS ! ! !
