I was worried that this might be a bit of a sell-out like the Top Trumps game, but my kids are so keen on Doctor Who that it was worth a try - my fears were very much unfounded as the game really captures the humour and quirkiness of the new Doctor perfectly. This is a Professor Layton-Style puzzle adventure which is a familiar format, but with a Doctor Who theme - very cleverly done and well scripted. Will let you know how we get on with it once I can stop the kids squabbling over who has it next!

This game is great, I may be over the target age for it but I'm a huge Doctor Who fan.

If you like puzzle games like Professor Layton then you'll be in familiar territory, it's like a Professor Layton game but Doctor Who based (same movement structure, character interaction, puzzles etc).

Some of the puzzles are quite easy but that's to be expected with the 3+ age guide on the cover. The trickier ones are the mini games where you have to guide energy balls without them getting destroyed.

I would put the age guide for this game much higher than 3+ (more like 7+) as I doubt a 3 year old could do most of the puzzles on their own (but I guess playing with a parent would be fine!)

Overall a great game! Ideal for Christmas!

Well, I am well over the 3+ age group but as someone who uses the Nintendo to keep my wits alert and a fan of our friendly Time Lord, I have to say this game is very impressive, added with the actual voices of the Doctor and Amy along with the Professor Leyton style of text boxes to read.
Some of the puzzles are easy, I'm pleased to say, but the mini games are something else. It certainly is a good use of my brain power, calculation and a steady hand is also needed - not much good if you suffer from Parkinsons! Unfortunately, the energy ball mini game stumps me as I don't have a steady hand - no, I don't have Parkinsons (lol) - and so I powered off the device as there is no way to cancel a mini game and nothing in the instructions to tell you how to opt out of the game if you're really stuck! I hope it doesn't reappear when I switch on - I want to confront the Daleks!
Overall, a really good game, ideal for keeping the kids and adults alike amused, and makes an ideal gift for birthdays and Christmas. Well done - let's have some more Doctor Who maybe on PSP...

We purchased this as a gift for my nine year old son, and he loves it. As we live in the States it is hard sometimes to find Doctor Who items, and especially video games. In fact, this is the first game we have found that is compatible with any system on our side of the Atlantic. The game has challenging puzzles that tests his thinking and reasoning skills, and has the voices of the Doctor and Amy to give it a very real feel. He got the game for Christmas, and now just after the new year is still playing it and enjoying it tremendously.

My son is a Dr Who fan so this was definately must have and so far it hasn't dissappointed as he has been throughly entertained. The level of difficulty is just right as professor layton is not one I recommend for kids unless you have a genius. It was a relief not to hear "I'm stuck" :)

I bought this for my 8 and 4 1/2 year old who are Doctor Who mad. The 8 year loves it and it has kept him entertained but unfortunately as the game involves all reading the 4 year can't play it by himself. Once the puzzles are explained he can manage some of them.
I would say it should have an age of 7+ rather than 3+

This was bought for my daughter who finished it quite quickly, she's only 9 years of age, so i had ago and found it to be a very simple game to complete. there is onyl one way to go through the game and the help you get in doing so makes it so easy to do, in fact a bit too easy to do.
There are one or two obsticles which can make you faulter but after a quick think you soon crack the code, so to speak, and away you go.

The graphics are pretty good and the voice overs are actually Smith and Gillan, (apparently), which gives the game a bit of credability, but as for playability it falls into the easy to boring section and, once completed, doesn't really appeal to the mind to have another go.

Luckily though Amazon have and offer where they will give you a voucher for certain games, this being one of them, so, if my daughter gives me the nod, i'll be taking them up on this offer, rather than have this game sat on the shelf

In all, not a bad game with some good graphic and game play, but a little too easy to complete and not one of those games you want to play again once completed

This is a good little game, packed full of puzzles and featuring the voice talents of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan as the Doctor and Amy.
Whilst it is a lot of fun and the cut-scenes are beautifully animated and voiced, the puzzles can get frustrating. None more so than the one puzzle which is unsolvable due to, I assume, a problem when it was programmed - the staff roster puzzle - so don't beat yourself up about it or spend hours trying to solve it because you won't be able to!
Having the real Doctor and Amy's voices makes this game a lot more fun and heightens the authenticity making it worth the money as a gift for the Doctor Who fan in your life. Just don't buy it for someone who doesn't like puzzles because that is really what this game is all about - jigsaw-like puzzles, sliding puzzles, spot-the-difference, verbal reasoning, maze-type puzzles etc. I wasn't expecting it to be so puzzle based but still had fun. It also doesn't take too long to complete (though some of the puzzles might take a while compared to others which are really simple). You can also go back over the puzzles at the end and watch the cut-scenes over again when finished the game - a nice touch especially if you've missed any out along the way.
All in all, a nice game ... if you like puzzles.
