Filtered Thoughts
Phineas and Ferb is another show we started watching through Netflix's streaming service with our oldest son.  While he probably couldn't follow what was happening in the show when we started watching it, the show provided a good distraction and background noise; but like another show, soon I found we had watched all of the available episodes, some two or three times.  Our oldest little bean will request to watch the show by saying, "Ferb!", so I think he's understanding it more now.

Like that other show, I also learned the theme song for Phineas and Ferb and have come to enjoy some of the characters on the show; specifically I enjoy the running relationship between Perry and Dr. Doofenshmirtz.

While I have not played Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension, I am surprised to see the game's average hours "Per person", or console, at more than 8 hours.  Tony, from Nintendo-Okie.com, reviewed it and clocked about 3.5 hours with the game, so I think the reported game-play hours show the game is definitely being played more often, and/or by more than one person; compared to Tony's time with the game.

If you have not seen any footage of the game, below is a video containing two trailers from the game that I compiled together:

  1. Haven't played the games and can't call myself a fan of the show, but my younger two kids tend to watch it when it's on. I get the feeling they like it 'okay' but it's not a favorite of theirs as I never catch them going out of their way to catch it.

    if you're a fan of the show, you will love the game.
    it also has lots of voice acting throughout.

  3. *Pokes My Little Gamer* Is it real? :)

    Good to see you!

    It's really nice in games like this that the audio's come along well enough that they can do actual voice acting for a lot of it (or irritating I suppose if you as the parent really dislike the game/tv show in question), but I think that really helps younger kids in particular enjoy the tie-in from game to show/movie.

  4. @Chalgyr:
    I can remember one night becoming annoyed with a certain character, repeatedly yelling her one line over and over..."MOM!"
    But, other than that one night, I think I have either gotten used to that part of the show, or just completely block it out now.

    Also, LOL at your question and poking of another reader...better be careful though, or I may have to update my TOS with a "not responsible for physical violence" line.

    @My Little Gamer:
    So, being that it seems a fairly shorter game, is there any sort of replay value to keep players going back? I mean, it seems the game is playing a good bit, so I'm wondering what is bringing them back to it.

    Thank you both for the comments/feedback!
