  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]

    It's fun but quite short and almost a bit to easy. Good for younger kids or a true puzzle fan. Just wished it wasn't so short.
