I have to say that this is the most fun game for the Wii that I have played. I love the fact that its similar to the first SMG, but different enough that it seems like a whole new game, rather than a rerun of the original. My son loves to play along with me as the luma helper, and this feature is way improved over SMG1. The early levels may seem rather easy, but i think that is a good thing, as my 6 year old can practice on these easy levels. I can already see an improvement in his gaming skills. Great family game, highly recommended.
