  • 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. This would have been a perfect Wiiware offering or budget title, but as a full-price retail product, it simply doesn’t offer quite enough value.

    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.
  3. Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey had all the right ideas about replicating the beloved children's books in videogame form except for one small detail: at 4-6 times the price of an actual book, it's hard to find anyone who would be willing to pay face value for the game.

    This is a fun little game. The game doesn't pretend to be anything other than a simple seek and find game. It makes me smile a lot.
