I was excited to get this game. I'd seen it in stores and thought the cover was so cute and that it would be alot of fun. I also noticed that it went up to 4 players so I was excited about that. The game has very cute menus and sounds but fails all around for me. Multiplayer makes no sense and isn't fun at all. Plus, when you're playing, you have to move Dewey around by tilting the wii remote and this gets frustrating. If you play too long, it starts to bug your eyes. The game had promise and a fun storyline, but it doesn't make me want to play it.
My 7 year old loved this game -- we ended up buying it from Gamefly.
The attacks and game control were pretty easy for him to master. I had to help in a couple of places that were impassible for him. There were a couple of tricky puzzles to solve, and I've observed the tilt control feature in some games to be a little difficult for younger kids. If you plan to be involved with your child as he plays, this is a great game to play together.
It has some great humor. Dewey is very cute and had my son laughing several times. (The intro scene is like having an icepick driven through your brain, but just ignore the annoying voice talent and enjoy the game).

I just started my account on gamefly and I only get games for the Wii. Now I have gotten about 5 games so far. But I have played many. This Dewy's so called adventure, is actually a puzzle game. I for one think that this game is quite simple. All you must do is free these weird circle things and defeat these bad guys. Pretty Simple.
When I first started the game, I was thinking: This so exciting! When I found put that to move you had to tilt the remote, I thought it was very creative. However, after about a few hours you get bored of it.
Positive: Innovative, Interesting, Hard puzzle, addictive.
Bottom Line: If you are considering this game, DO NOT BUY IT OR RENT IT. I ADVISE TO ONLY GET IT IF YOU HAVE A GAMEFLY ACCOUNT!!!!!!! THAT WAY YOU CAN HAVE IT FOR A DAY OR TWO AND THEN SEND IT BACK WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY A LOT.
ONLY GET IT IF YOU ARE RENTING IT FROM GAMEFLY!!!!!!!!!!
