This is ridiculous. The required "crank" to start the game doesn't work well and after a half hour of trying to get the silly thing to work I gave up. I thought this would be a fun game to play with my kids, but I couldn't even get INTO the game.
Sorry, games should be fun to play. Not work to even get into.

Now I don't mind 'kiddie' games... I like a good puzzle game... so I started to play this with an open mind... Annoying features... to even start the game you have to crank some machine up... so you have to twirl the remote - which does and doesn't work... very frustrating. We finally got it to work. Then, the first game we chose to play was an aquarium themed one where we were given a list of things to find. Our first thought was... is our tv too small for this game? because we couldn't see anything on the screen and were convinced it must be to the right or left... we never did find out if this was the case... the graphics were very lame and it was really hard to make anything out really. Every now and then, through random clicking on anything on the screen, we would find something and open a side game... which we would complete. Then, back in the regular game, if we accidently hit it again, the side game would keep opening up so we would have to repeatedly back out of it. We finally gave up, pulled the game out of our console and placed it immediately in the return envelop. What a waste of time!
I personally thought it sucked and so did my kids. My kids love the "I spy" computer games, but this game was to hard for them. I tried finding some of the pictures too and could not find them. They could have made it a bit more age appropriate. I mean what teenager is going to be playing I spy?
