I haven't read the book and the kids and I found it quite entertaining.
Some problems with the scenario (like any blockbuster) but a lot - maybe too much - fan service for both kids and father ;)

Spoiler Alert****

In the book our hero had to conquer pac man , joust and Tempest
and also solve several ancient text based maze, adventure games in order to succeed at various points throughout the story. None of this was in the movie....I guess it would be boring in a movie?

He had to travel to remote worlds within the oasis and gain points. Some worlds were designated PVP(player versus player) where your avatar could die and you would lose all of the avatars powers etc.. this added tension to story which was sorely lacking in the movie

All the good guys actually were fighting against each other right until the end in the book...in the movie they were all one clan...which stole most of the drama.

The characters in the book didn't meet each other in real life until the end of the story which added to the anticipation, where as in the movie, they all met early on.

Ogg had a trivial role only in the movie

Solving the riddles was much more elaborate in the book , whereas the movie puzzles
were to simple and solved almost accidentally.

The book had the characters enter into real time movie reenactments of "War Games" and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". The one they chose was cool...but "Holy Grail" would have been more
appropriate as the movie is about finding a "holy Grail" Easter Egg. But I guess people might find it cheesy or something.
