Not for the experienced gamer, 9 September 2007
Author: newsfop from Ann Arbor, MI

I chose this title on a whim because my Blockbuster return deal allowed movie OR video game rentals for free. I of course have a Gamecube, so the selection was devastatingly sparse. I came across Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and figured, "What the hey!" I will vouch for the remarkable set designing and creativity when it comes to the look of the game. I was impressed by the beauty.

However, the challenges were really not too challenging and rather predictable. I had endeared to another game ran along similar lines: Animaniacs: The Great Edgar Hunt, which took me a couple days to finish. This game took me an evening and and after noon to complete.

I don't fancy myself a hardened gamer, and to complete this game so quickly, I was a bit let down. This is really more for the target audience of the Gamecube, kids; young kids! It was nice to see the sets and a bit of variety and depth, but I didn't feel challenged.
