Rented this game for my son who is 5 and loved the movie...so i thought what the heck. Not a bad game for young kids. There is a little violence when you have to fight the bad guys, but it is kept very simple and very "cartoon" like in the actions. So it is not offensive of obscene for the young'ens.
It seemed fairly easy to figure out (my son had it pretty well down within the first time he played), however the were some areas that were hard to get uot of, and I think with a little more of a map or directional arrow the kids might be able to manuver a little smoother.
Other than that my boy really enjoyed playing it, and it had a good story that really seemed to stay consistent with how the movie played out.
This game has a really good concept but it is just way to repetitive. It is actually quite difficult when it comes to the fighting when you are Bolt the dog. Even more so there are places in the level that you get stuck and have no idea of what to do. It takes patience.
