  • Summary: In the game, players look for Waldo and friends, in addition to hundreds of hidden items in twelve different magical worlds. Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey can be played in single- or multiplayer mode. In the multiplayer mode, gameplay is enhanced through a variety of power-up features where players unleash different special effects to gain an advantage over opponents or enhance their own search capabilities. Power-ups include: Wacky Paint: Splatter colorful paint onto your opponent's screen to obscure the view. Thunder Clap: Cast thunder onto your opponent and make the screen shake. Frosty: Freeze the search window by encasing it in ice. Sparkly: Keep your eyes on the twinkle and glitter effects to detect items. [Ubisoft] Expand

  1. Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey looks and feels like an authentic piece of Waldo merchandise; not throwaway shovelware. Fans of the book series will definately want to have a go at it, but everyone else should steer clear due to the title's short length.
  2. It's nice to see a developer bothering to make a good quality game for junior gamers, but the books are better. [Winter 2009, p.70]
