This isn't for the older set, unless they're die-hard fans of the movie. But if you have kids aged 6-10 (or thereabouts) who can read the dialogue, this is an excellent way to keep them entertained. The story is somewhat non-linear, and there are a lot of areas to explore and numerous entertaining mini-games to unlock. Lots and lots of gameplay. Check it out!
My 8-year old daughter played this for three or four hours straight (didn't realize she was still in there playing!). Highlights include "tease the mailman" (just like the movie!) and the pool game in the barnyard... now that I think about it, I enjoy playing this one too (but only when the kids are around).
When I picked up this game I figured it would be like Over the Hedge, Very hard to navigate with no plot.
This game changed my opinion of "kids games" this game on the GameCube is just a fun on the Wii. With the Wii, as you know, you get more action steps and more involved in the game. In the GameCube version it was just as much fun.
It was funny to see the cows squirt milk and my male friends just wanted to play it because of this interesting new feature of male cows. :)
There is a plot, and it takes you through one thing to the next easily. The best part was the Races. I like that you have a goal and must meet the goal before you move on. The sad thing was... well I just cant give it away.
