This game was fun for my 5 yr. old! One of the neat things about the game is that you get to customize your character to look like a princess (not a Disney princess). The levels vary in difficulty as your skills increase, and the graphics are great. The only downside to the game is that it requires you to operate the Wii controller in one hand and the nunchuk in the other simultaneously. This might be a problem for some. Otherwise, a good value.
This game is aimed squarely at my 5-year-old daughter, and for that, it is almost a perfect game.
Adult gamers will find this boring, short, easy and shallow. But it's not for adult gamers.
For my daughter, it is the chance to play with the princesses of the Disney movies. More importantly, this game introduces some fairly universal game concepts that exist in just about every game for adults or kids. Things like collection quests, mini-games, even basic things like using the stick for moving your character in a 3-D environment, are all put to use in this game in a safe, forgiving environment.
For that, this game is a wonderful introduction to console gaming for any young girl.
