Video Game Generation (Jan 30, 2011)
Where’s Waldo? The Fantastic Journey is apparently “based on” Martin Handford’s third Waldo book: “The Great Waldo Search”. The maps appear to be directly scanned from this book and brought to life by partial animation, background noise and music in what turns out to be a rather fun and amusing video game. While we’re certainly not talking about a particularly challenging game, for fans of the series or those who appreciate a bit of camp and cuteness, it still provides a bit of fun escapism. It’s a shame that the two player mode isn’t particularly responsive, which takes away the fun of competing against a friend. Honestly speaking, when I heard they were putting this game out, I didn’t think the Waldo books would translate to the video game milieu to any degree whatsoever. On having sat down and actually played the thing, I was glad to find my suspicions proven dead wrong.

Where's Waldo is executed very elegantly on the Wii. It doesn't pretend to be something it isn't and sticks with the already brilliant source material. The Fantastic Journey enhances Waldo in a way that would be impossible in print form.

This game is simple fun. Most adults would find the single player way too easy, but kids might enjoy themselves. The multiplayer is great and both kids and adults can easily enjoy the fun to be had with it. If you are looking for some simple fun for your kids or are a fan of Waldo and would like to play it multiplayer with some friends then this game is a great choice.

Where’s Waldo? The Fantastic Journey is truly a splitting image of the book itself, featuring exact replicas of the fantastical scenes with a few animations strewn throughout. Also, the act of seeking and finding is brought over and solidly reproduced onto the Wii. However, it’s still difficult to recommend any gamer to buy the game new as they can find the same fun within the books themselves (without all the bells and whistles) and can actually buy 6 of these books for the price of this one game. I would have liked to see Ubisoft approach the title on a dual front, where gamers can either buy it in stores or online at a lower price as WiiWare; that way, gamers could buy it at a much more affordable price than the current one.
