Wonderbook: Book of Spells Review - TGH

"Before there were video games, TV, film and even radio, there were books. You know what a book is right? I’m not talking about the words found inside your Kindle. I’m talking about a good ol’ fashioned book. Hardback, or paperback, a sturdy spine, and pages of wonderful words for you to read and enjoy. The book has been around for an incredible amount of time. Whether you’re old or young, everyone knows how to use a book; and in all this time, the book really hasn’t changed. We’ve had TV and film innovate with the times, and the same has happened to music and even video games. The biggest change to the book is with the arrival of the e-reader, but it does nothing to improve upon the books function. However, thanks to Sony it seems that that age old paper filled creation could finally be getting the reinvention it deserves. Wonderbook makes pop-up books look like child’s play." (PS3, Wonderbook: Book of Spells) 4/5

Looks pretty decent but a lot of mixed reviews about it. Might wait and see what other 'books' come out for it.

Not really "a lot." A few reviews that give it mediocre scores, but an overall positive reception.

It's for families and more directed towards kids, so reviewers are going to harp on it not being hardcore, but I think it looks really fun. Digg Nightcrawler looks cool and they have a Walking with Dinosaurs book my daughter really wants. I can have fun with my kids and she can enjoy it, while I reap the trophies. Looking forward to this.

I really enjoyed it - as the review says - and I agree, I'm looking forward to Diggs Nightcrawler and Walking With Dinosaurs. Hopefully the Disney books do well too. Disney potentially means Marvel and Star Wars stuff too. Can't wait.

It'll be $20 at Walmart on Black Friday, so I'm definitely picking it up! Diggs Nightcrawler looks pretty awesome, too. That's why I want this. :)

This game is surprisingly cheap considering the book is packaged with it. Might make for a good Xmas present.
