    Played through some of it, and most of the mini games are well made, though not all of them are my taste. The roller coaster one, though, is fun as hell. Don't like the fact that you have to get a certain number of "frights" before unlocking other minis, `cause again, they're not all fun to me.

    Man the books aren't crap!! They were great, I used to love reading them when I was 10. We used to compete with each other at school about who has read the most lol.

    Well, just played some more of it, and I think some folks will be surprised at the amount of shallow fun this game offers. You'll have to complete the second part of the park to get the point where you realize there's something here worth playing, which is something most folks likely won't be willing to do, but so far, it's pretty good.

    The Six Flags game had a similar premise, but the minis kind of sucked. This, though, is well made.

    I was half expecting 'Player beware, you're in for a scare!' on the boxart. [​IMG] I used to enjoy the TV show and books when I was little. I'll try this out after COD5. [​IMG]

    Oh come on...when you were age 7-13 you knew these books were absolutely awesome. Horrorland was one of the best books I read when I was that age.

    Haha yeah they were good. I liked the "pick your own path" books, where based on your decisions it would either further the story for you or you would die. (I would cheat though lol)

    I read pretty much every Goosebumps book in existence. I can't believe the series is still alive though.

    Urg, I hated these books, even when I was a kid....

    That is nothing really innovative in books, I used to love the fighting fantasy and lone wolf book series when I was a kid which were probably the first to do such a thing.

    nobody has mentioned the fact that nobody have even thought of goosebumps in years. It's for kids, so it's too bad that all the people who were into goosebumps are grown up now...

    Shit this game is really fun!

    It reminds me of the PC game hehehe.

    I still find it hilarious how those kids think that the "Horrors" are just costumes...

    Im a primary school teacher and can state for a fact that goosebump books are still one of the most popular books in our library and we have a very good library that is updated with all the new books.
    Not sure what their sales figures are like these days but they are still getting read.

    I tried this game and it's freaking fun, those who are into rpg or stuff like that would probably hate this but I think it's fun.. brings back memories of going to the carnivals, except this one is with horror theme
