My friend and I love Disney and saw the preview for this game on the Nintendo Channel on the Wii. It's quick, easy to learn, and she and I played through the whole thing in about 3 hours. Now granted, we are adults! It was fun and the controls were simple. It would be great for kids of all ages to play, I think. The littler ones might just need a little help. Some of the princesses (Snow White) are tough, but not so much that I think a child would be too frustrated. The storyline was great and the game teaches character traits that are so important in today's world!
My 5 year old daughter loved the game so much we bought it after renting. It is suitable for the youngest age group - short minigames hold their attention span, ability to customize their 'princess' leads to lots of costume and hair changes (part of the fun for them), and the bad guys are easily defeated. She's 5 - she likes a challenge but can get frustrated, and this game is solved within an hour or two of play, less if you play 2 player. She's gone back through the game a second time also, and likes to just mess around within the games, seeing how high her character can jump, leaping from the banister, looking for hidden treasures. One problem is that the players are only female - you would think no boy would be caught dead with this game but her 3 year old brother really loved it, but pined for a more boyish character to play. Really a cute game for young players. Older than 7 and you may get bored.
I know, I know. It is for children. But, sometimes I feel better about myself when I can beat a game in 2 hours. It was a cute little adventure game. Basic 'challenges' were pretty entertaining. The WORST part was the little videos with super super detailed instructions. I was so bored, I started doing other things around the house while the videos were playing. But fun overall.
