    Watching my kids play through Diggs Nightcrawler it was interesting to see how strong a connection they had to both the genre and the play style. Certainly, playing a game with a book feels a very different way to spend time that sat staring at their handhelds.

    The perfect game for the youngest detectives.
  3. Virtual reality succeeds or fails with its controls. And, even though we were extremely skeptical at first, Wonder Book: Diggs Nightcrawler's controls work amazingly well. Except on a rare occasion or two, all of our inputs registered without having to repeat the action. [July 2013, p.90]

    A fine noir fairy tale for the whole family.

    Tightly woven story, great use of the tech - but, at a paltry two hours, it's brief. [Aug 2013, p.68]

    Diggs Nightcrawler sets itself apart by using the book itself as a controller, instead of the PlayStation Move. The game is mostly aimed at a younger audience and is very amusing to look at (and listen to). It's a shame that the Wonderbook isn't always correctly detected by the PlayStation Eye and the adventure is a bit short overall, but still we would recommend a purchase.

    Its humorous tone, combined with recognizable characters and loaded with personality, make this an excellent choice also for adults who want to play with the kids at home.
