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.

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 !!!

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.

Most people will buy this for their potter mad children... I'm not a huge fan of Harry potter nor am I six, (24) I bought this game as a risk but for the price I thought it was worth it and it is!

I have played the first two chapters and its great! Much better than I expected! Learning to cast spells, solve puzzles and the stories are great, I can't fault it at all.

Very easy to set up (even for little people) and the book is really good quality, not thin and flimsy so should last to use with future releases.

I'm so pleased with this purchase and i have looked on line at future wonder book release titles and there is some promising games! It's a great buy for young and old and well worth it weather your a Harry potter fan or not.

I have notice a few people mention no camera or controller came with the pack,(for £20 you wouldnt expect it) there is a separate starter pack that can be bought for around £50 if you don't already own the camera and controller. So I'd make sure you buy the right one not to be disappointed.

Overall it's great!

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.

The Book of Spells is an ideal present for any Harry Potter fan as our my 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter. The effects are very clever and really gets into the game and the world of magic. Brushing the leaves or wiping the dust off the book/ pages is very clever. The only down side is the children completed the book of spells far to quickly :0( as I was hoping for hours/ days/ weeks/ months of fun.

The tech works very well but the 'game' was completed in two days with only a few hours of play. There is some replay value in trying to beat earlier scores but otherwise it's unlikely to be played for very long. Hopefully Sony will release more 'books' on the psn or this peripheral won't be seeing much use sadly

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.

Bought this recently for about £9, a real bargain! The kids love playing with the Wonderbook and casting spells and having fun with the Book of Spells. Great graphics and overall game interraction. Recommended! Note that you will need the move controller and camera though (not supplied).

opens up a whole new world of entertainnment for children and adults alike, not very long but engaging, and with the prospect of new games ,including some that will have an educational dimension, wonderbook should become a popular addition to the playstation household.
