Although they have been a little slow in coming, Book of Potions and Walking With Dinosaurs, the new Wonderbook titles extend the library in fine style and demonstrate what a great piece of technology the Wonderbook-Playstation Eye combination really is.
With some early hands-on time with the game, Andy Robertson of Family Gamer TV puts the new interactive stories to the test with his family. Although you do need to ensure your room is well lit to get the best out of the augmented reality experience, the results in good conditions are certainly impressive.
The two games offer very different experiences. Book of Potions, including content from J. K. Rowling, is another wizard-based adventure where the player must learn potions to compete in a big contest and win the day. Whereas Walking With Dinosaurs from the BBC offers more actually storytelling and mixes in a good amount of educational elements as well. You need to pay attention if you are to score top marks in the quiz at the end of the chapter.
To play both of these you will need a PlayStation Eye camera, Move Controller and Wonderbook peripheral. Once you have these each of the additional books can be purchased separately.
