The first story: Wonderbook Book of Spells

Book of Spells is the first title for Wonderbook, the latest addition to the PlayStation experience. Written by Miranda Goshawk over two hundred years ago, Book of Spells can be found in the Restricted Section of the Hogwarts library. It is an advanced textbook for students, which will assist them on their journey to becoming an accomplished witch or wizard.

Book of Spells provides students with a safe environment in which to read, discover, learn and practise spells they already know and love, such as Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, as well as discover mischievous notes and spells scribbled into the margins by previous Hogwarts students, and humorous anecdotal facts relating to the spells. J.K. Rowling has written a conundrum that leads you through the experience, providing insight into the values a witch or wizard has to learn, and inviting you to journey through the book to unlock new content, rewarding successful students along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game for Kids, or Adults who are still kids! 25 Nov 2012
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, I'm 25, M, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.. I LOVE this game so far.

The Augmented Reality is amazing, there are parts where you have to wipe dust of the book and you do this by interacting with the wonderbook. Lifting the book up and moving it around affects what you see on the TV. The spells are all from the "Harry Potter" universe. Expect to see LUMOS and ALOEHAMORA to name a few.

I'm really enjoying this game and as much as I originally thought "Xmas present for cousins after I've played it" I think this will be a keeper.

4.0 out of 5 stars ..simply AMAZING... 17 Nov 2012
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yesterday i bought this game for my daughter(7yo) and we both were astonished from this game. First it has never been a game like this with augmented reality and believe me it's something that you must see!!! The game doesn't have difficulty levels from the beggining but (we are in chapter2 now) every page you turn, the puzzles to solve and the difficulty , get's higher. The game have a very good help on how to adjust your camera and if you follow the instructions you will never have a problem. Words cannot describe the experience feeling on playing this game. A big thanks to everyone who contributed in order to make this game playable. My opinion is that the wonderbook will change the way we play games in a couple of years!! It's a breakthrough and worth any pennie !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars As close as I'll ever get to attending Hogwarts! 21 Nov 2012
By pacem et amorem TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What can I say ... this is a magical game into which lots of careful thought has been put. The developers have done JK Rowling and Harry Potter fans proud and have provided an experience full of wonder. The concept certainly deserves the name 'Wonderbook.'
I bought the Starter Pack as I didn't have a Move controller or the Playstation Eye camera which are essential for the game - you cannot play without them. Setup of these new additions was surprisingly simple and I was ready to start 'studying' my 'Book of Spells' within a few minutes.
If you are a Pottermore member you have the option of linking to your profile whereby your wand and House are automatically assigned as those on your Pottermore account. If you're not a Pottermore member you start by choosing your wand and selecting your House. This is then where the magic begins. You use your Eye cam to make a 'wizard photo' for your game file and get to open your book and start learning.
With fun activities bursting out of the pages and new information about the Potter universe at your fingertips, this is an essential item for the true Harry Potter fan. To see yourself sitting in your own home, waving a wand and performing magic (albeit in augmented reality lol) is truly amazing.
If you love Potter then you'll love this! Highly recommended for a truly magical experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for Harry Potter fans 17 Nov 2012
Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am an absolute Harry Potter freak so I had to have this and I was not disappointed. The move camera is always a little awkward to set up in my small living room but once that was sorted the game was very easy to follow and was truly amazing. We haven't got too far yet so may update this but for the price, I think it's a must have as there are supposed to be more Wonderbook games on there way soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars I thought it was better... 12 May 2013
Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Judging by the publicity which this had, I was waiting for a more enthusiastic game. From the moment the gamer reaches the end, it's enough. There is no desire to doing it again... It has the advantage in terms of price compared to the price in stores in Portugal and it came with Portuguese (european) language.
