While being a good experience in itself, I wouldn't call the game being an absolute addition to one's game library if you are not a fan of the show. Overall, it is a good game based on a cartoon, but I feel like the creators could have easily extend the content of the game (Voice over? Larger map? Side quests?) to make Adventure Time's game for DS enjoyable for non-fan as well.
Content of Collector's Edition: 5/10
Even though it says "Steel bookcase" It is a plastic case partially covered with steel and the picture on amazon has been modified because you can easily see the plastic parts on the side of the Enchiridion. It has two foam parts inside to prevent your actual game packaging from being damaged. The bestiary content is short and sweet, you get to be revealed the name, description and statistics of each and every enemy you can encounter during the game. The pictures inside the book of the beasts are close-up of actual in-game image. The map is printed on a one side gloss coated paper. It represents the map of the land of Ooo as depicted in the game. As they have printed the picture from the resolution that was made for the game, we can not distinguish anything anymore. Which make this a rather uninteresting addition to the Collector's Edition. I guess I was kind of hoping the collector's edition of Adventure Time : Hey Ice King Why You'd Steal our Garbage to be of overall higher quality. The sword stylus is my favorite piece from this special edition.Read more ›

My main problem with the game is how short it is. I beat the entire game in 3 1/2 hours. All of the "quests" are fetch-style and "leveling" your stats just comes down to finding a chest with a stat boost inside and applying the boost to Health, Attack, or Speed. This game is obviously directed towards children, but I feel that children would be confused by the backtracking required to progress (ESPECIALLY near the end of the game). An example would be that an NPC asks for an item that is in a town that you were last in an hour ago and to get the item, you have to go to another place, get an item and take it to trade for ANOTHER item to give to the NPC that asked for it. Not bad at all for someone over 14 or so, but very hard to grasp for a child.
There is a new game plus mode after you beat the game, where you get to keep your stats and play thought the game again. It's a nice addition if you like that kind of thing (I don't tend to play "adventure" games more than once, though).
If you're a fan of the show, check it out, but wait til it drops a few bucks in price. If you're not a fan, it would more than likely be a pass. And if you're thinking about buying it for your kids, understand that the game is not "linear" (it is, but with very little hand-holding).
Hope this helps!
I did get the collectors edition, Finn's sword stylist is pretty neat. The Enchiridion tin game case is top bloobies.
If you are an adventure time fan or know someone who is and has a 3DS, get this. you will not be disappointed.
Small fold out map is kind of useless, but neat. The "Book of Beasts" was a good little read on the different enemys in the game. The stylus looks like Finn's golden sword, all the way to the tip where it narrows to the standard stylus tip. The Steelbook case was very well done! It looked just like in the show, has some nice reflective paint on it, and stores the gabe box, stylus, map, instructions, and Book of Beasts easily.
Will upload a video unboxing of it later, can't just use my Youtube link...
Console Played: Nintendo 3DS (also available on the DS). The 3d made it look a bit like a pop-up book, with parallax scrolling of the background layers. It was enjoyable with or without this feature. Luckily, I believe the DS and 3DS versions are priced the same.
Completion Time: less than 8 hours.
Demographic: the 7 to 13 years range OR anyone who is an Adventure Time fan.
I'm a big biased fan of the TV series. When I heard there was going to be a Nintendo DS game coming out I was elated.
The game starts in a dream sequence that does nothing other than set you up for the tutorial. Most of the game is played in a side view platformer. You can punch (later use a sword), kick, and long punch with Jake who has taken up residence in your backpack. The world map is a top down view similar to Pokémon or the original Dragon Quest games. You can get into battles on the world map if you run into a dark shadow thing that appears. These can largely be avoided though.
Inside cities you can talk to the populace to either get quests or tips on what to do next. I made sure to read as many of these as possible because I like the humor and writing.
The average dungeon (many are just tunnels from one part of Ooo to another) has bottomless pits, various enemies, and very basic puzzles. Use an ability on this one thing, wall opens up. Find a key, locked door is no longer a problem. Basic videogame flow with minimal backtracking.
Nothing is horrifyingly difficult, and the player isn't punished for making mistakes. This is why I've described the game difficulty as low. But honestly, it isn't aimed at hardened gamers; it is meant to be played by younger kids who may need an introduction to videogame basics.
You do need reading comprehension in order to progress in the game without blindly stumbling around. The game capitalizes item names in the speech bubbles so that young readers can pick it up. If my nephew gets a Nintendo DS this Xmas I'll probably buy him this game as he needs to practice reading.
This wasn't just a cash-in by the creator Pendleton Ward nor Cartoon Network. I've played crappy kids' games that are made poorly and rushed out to make a quick buck off of kids who only want it because their favorite character is on it. The gameplay, art, music, and writing were all enjoyable. Getting a New Game + mode should make this game last longer for younger players.

Let me start off with this; This is a must have for any Adventure Time, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, or both lover.
The game's mathmatical!
The power-ups are cool, the many characters are great to see, and the lines are hilarious. True Adventure Time humor.
Not to mention the great collector's edition bonuses, like the sword stylus, or the bestiary guide book, or the sweet steel book case.
All for only $10.00 more!
So thank you Ice King, for stealing their garbage...okay that sounds a bit weird but still, this game is brilliant! And it isn't Adventure Time with garbage-stealing.
Or knife-wielding bunnies for that matter.
highly recommended from
My son got 12 games for Christmas, but so far has only played this one. That is how much he loves it. He says it is easy, but is a lot of fun. Perfect for any Adventure Time fan.
My son has started using the Enchiridion outer case for holding his 3DS and stylus. The 3Ds fits inside perfectly.
