Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff - Nintendo DS Game Review

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

My 19 year old daughter (yes, I said 19!) is a faithful viewer of the Phineas and Ferb cartoon show. Something about it keeps her glued to the TV screen when it's on and she rarely misses an episode. I think it temporarily affords her the chance to go back to part of her childhood. When the opportunity arose to review the Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff Nintendo DS game, she jumped at the chance.

Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff is available on several consoles, including Xbox 360, Wii, and Nintendo DS. The overall storyline for the game is that Phineas and Ferb create, travel and explore in their quest for artifacts to fill out the Museum of Cool. Agent P, the pet platypus, helps the pair keep a doctor from becoming an evil force.

There are two modes of play in the game. Exploration mode allows you to switch between Phineas and Ferb as you explore different areas. Action Mode allows you to tranform Perry from a pet platypus to a super agent. In addition, you can build and play in the All-Terrain Transformation Vehicle and customize it to your preference with colors, sounds and decorative parts. Spare parts for the A.T.T are bought by collecting sprockets.

Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff isn't strong on a storyline and isn't high on the challenging factor. Even with those two downsides, Shelby enjoys the game for its quests and the fact that it isn't overly hard to complete quests. It has just enough of a mental test to make it enjoyable and stimulating to play. It may not be very demanding for those who are avid gamers, but it's a pleasurable game for tenderfoots to play to pass the time.
