Lets keep in mind, this is a game for little girls

Sure the graphics arent the coolest, and in my adult mind, the game is pretty lame, but for my 4 year old daugter who doesn't feel confident enough using the Wii remotes, this game is just fine. Sometimes she liked watching us play more than doing it herself, and when she did play I really liked the two player option so her older brother(who said he didn't care if it was a princess game, he'd still play it with his sister) or I could help her out. The bonus level with Belle was, lets face it, pretty lame, but the fact that you could go through the whole game again, leisurely is what appealed to my daugter the most. To not have the pressure helped her enjoy it more. My son and I went through the whole game, and even made up our own game of tag in the throne room. Our daughter is getting this for her birthday with the hopes that this game will give her some much needed practice with the Wii, so she can feel as comfortable as she does with computer games so we can have family time on the Wii.
I have a 5 years old daughter; and thanks for all the Disney marketing scheme, my daughter is so into the "Princess" stuff.
I mean what can you expect really ? If your love one know how to use an analog stick, she properly has a better time than mine does. In my case, I will need to sit next to my daughter and she forced me to went through the game with her. Granted, I kind of like it that way; but I also disappointed that the control is not as easy as it should have been.
Besides all those princess domain, you also get a bonus "Belle" area to visit if you beat the game.
I think the best part about the game is the "dressing room". My girls insist me to go there everytime we finish one section of the game and change her clothes. Not a lot you can do here; but still pretty cool for a 5 years old.
One thing you should know. If you start the game with 2 players, you can't play with just one player later. Also the 2nd player control is kind of jumpy.
Overall, it is a kid game that does not teach your girl anything; but I do enjoy spending time with her like this; so I give it a better than expected bonus point.
