This game is awesome. I like playing it because it has the coolest I-Spy stuff. I can't wait until I fill the whole chart in with all of the puzzle pieces. I have like five more to go and I can't wait to solve the puzzle. I wonder what the puzzle says. I want to invite my friends who like I-Spy books to come over and play it with me.
Well, there you have it folks. My daughter is six years old and in the first grade and she gives it five stars. I hope this review is helpful to you.
Bottom line, I would have given this 5 stars had we only paid $5 for it, but after paying $20, I was very disappointed! It really is a great game, but I would suggest looking for a used one somewhere before spending a lot on this one. Hope this helps!!
If you've never had the pleasure, I Spy Spooky Mansion puts you first person through a haunted mansion, pursued by an adorable (if needling and persistent) skeleton who won't let you out until you solve his riddles... or her riddles; it's kind of hard to tell. You solve them by, of course, finding the things he's describing! ....it's a kids game, undoubetdly, and it's so easy to write off games aimed at kids with a wave and a smirk: 'oh, it's good enough, it's only for KIDS afterall."
When, exactly, did video games stop being PRIMARILY for kids? When did that switch happen?
With that in mind, this I Spy addition has some short-comings that hide safely behind that "but it's for KIDS!" mentality without ever really challenging themselves to make a better game. I was a kid, I had a few video games, I remember being forced into repetition and being bored silly (looking at you, Rampage). I took it then because there weren't a heck of a lot of options. But in this day and age, with what the Wii is capapble of (even as the least powerful of modern systems), forcing your young players into a small handfuls of locations over and over and over to search for nearly the same objects over and over and over is unnecessary. Give them the option to repeat the ones they like best; they will and they'll thank you for it. Forcing them? Not necessary.Read more ›
