Wonderbook is a new Move title for the Playstation 3, featuring popup magic and spells from a book in your living room based on new Harry Potter content created exclusively by J.K. Rowling. With our kids well accustomed to the physical presence of game items, through Skylanders Giants, we look at how they take to Wonderbook and how this game can contribute to our family routine.

The Wonderbook manages to provide a more relaxing and much less innervating experience for the children, compared with other, more frenetic games. Wonderbook was especially effective when enjoyed in place of the regular bedtime story. The children also enjoyed the pop-up book aspects of Wonderbook and even our youngest managed to enjoy the Augmented Reality stories.

"Videogame reviews for the whole family, not just the kids. I dig out videogame experiences to intrigue and interest grownups and children. This is post-hardcore gaming where accessibility, emotion and storytelling are as important as realism, explosions and bravado."
