rent this game and our 6 year old had a very hard time using it. she is able to play other kinect games, but for some reason this one would not reconize her! we had to hold her up and she could do the hand moves and an adult would stand next to her doing the kicking. this became very frustrating very quickly for everyone.
If you loved being forced to sit through an hour of cinematics in Kingdom Hearts before you could actually PLAY the game, you might like the start-stop-stop-stop-start again nature of this title. But I already SAW the movie, so I don't need to be force-fed another hour of cutscenes and training moves before I ever get to ply a 5 minute actual level. If you buy this for a kid, be aware that if they are old enough to read, they are probably already too old to enjoy this - and reading is required.
