MasonicGamer.com - It was clear from the time I spent with it, as well as from discussion with the Sony representative, that this is definitely a kids title. This will be obvious to many, but Potter fans may be hoping that there’s enough substance to keep adult gamers occupied. Unfortunately, this is less of a game and more of an interactive experience, with the book coming to life in front of you and a minimal amount of story holding it together.
The real draw is the augmented reality aspect, and Book of Spells pulls this off really well. The book is beautifully displayed on screen and can be moved around in real time. Not once did the camera lose sight of it or need time to catch up, and this was also true of the wand I held. The PlayStation Move controller never showed on screen, and although everything was a little slowed down, it really gave the impression of holding a wand above a magical, 3-dimensional book.
