Wonderbook: Book of Spells – Guardian review

Guardian:
According to conventional wisdom, books and games are incompatible: the latter are often blamed by parents for a lack of interest among the former in their offspring.

But Sony's London Studio has hit upon a very clever way of bridging that apparent chasm, in the form of Wonderbook. The Wonderbook is a blue, hardback book whose covers and pages, in its naked state, are covered with the sort of patterns (not unlike QR codes) that you find on Augmented Reality cards.

It works with the PS3's PlayStation Camera and Move controller setup, is reusable, and the first piece of game-style software it works with couldn't be more appealing to parents: Miranda Goshawk's Book of Spells drops you slap-bang in the middle of Harry Potter's universe.

Book of Spells certainly isn't a game in the conventional sense: instead, it takes you back to school. A prospect which may fill many of us with dread, except that the school in question is Hogwarts, and the crash-course on which you're embarking is spell-casting (PS3, Sony, Wonderbook: Book of Spells) 4/5
