    If you're already played it in the Wii version, exploring it on 3DS is both familiar and different. [Jan 2012, p.91]

    The 3DS version appears to be a 3D-enhanced port of the DS version of the game.

    Contains the essence of the Wii game, although it lacks a lot of the content. Should be cheaper to compensate. Isn't. [Christmas 2011, p.72]

    It's still enjoyable and entertaining, its humorous style and accessible gameplay perfect for casual and less experienced gamers. It may not put a spell on you, then, but there's still some magic to it.
