Review - iCarly: iJoin the Click!

iCarly is a name a lot of people have been familiar with since 2007 when the show launched on Nickelodeon. Ever since then the show has had 4 amazing seasons and caught popularity with people of all ages. They launched the first iCarly video game in 2009 and have follow it up releasing the second video game in 2010.
LIVE in 5, 4, 3, 2...!  
It’s all up to you to help Carly in her quest to turn iCarly into an even bigger world-wide sensation! Find props for the set, crew for the show, wacky content to feature, hundreds of collectibles, and then put it all together to turn iCarly into the world’s most popular web show!

iCarly: iJoin the Click! was released in late 2010 and I received the game for the Nintendo DS to review. I was exited, as I'm a big fan of the show :) The video game has the same gameplay as the first. The graphics are a little disappointing for a Nintendo DS game, but the game itself has good re-play value. It is a single-player game, rated E for everyone.

You start off the game as the new kid in town and are befriended by everyone as you do tasks for them. The more tasks you get done for people, the more stars appear letting you know how much they like you. You get to visit a lot of the the hangouts from the show like Ridgeway High School, Groovie Smoothie Shop, Carly's apartment, the iCarly set, etc. Its quite fun visiting the hang outs and interacting with people from the show like Freddie (which is my favorite character on the show), Carly, Sam , Spencer, Gibby, Nevel and more.

Along with making friends as the new kid, there are plenty of mini-games to play. You earn money by running errands in the Post Office, Pet Store and other places. As you progress in the game you will eventually receive an item finder, which serves the same purpose a metal detector does and looks like one of Spencer's crazy sculptures. It is a great item to have because as you walk around you find some great crazy items you can keep, auction or place on the iCarly set.

On your InYouFacePage, you will receive mail, friend requests and be able to read bulletins from people you have previously interacted with. You'll see a lot of people voicing their opinions about you :) Customization is quite fun, you can buy things at the Stylin' Shop and use your DSi camera to create unique fashion pieces and to take pictures to hang on the wall of the iCarly set!

Overall, this game is a lot of fun. It was easy enough for my little sister to understand where to go and what to do. The time in the game passes by too fast and is probably the only con I see in the game, besides the graphics. It is rated E for everyone, its best for anyone 6 or older. A big thanks for the opportunity to review iCarly: iJoin the Click!. The game retails for about $14.99 - $29.99 and is available for the Nintendo Wii and DS systems.
