My son is 6, and really loves this game. It's one RPG game that he can still play. Most RPG games involve a lot of reading, and this one does too, however, for the most part, he is still able to play without being able to read everything. I just help out here and there. He LOVES digging for fossils and cleaning them, and I love that there is more to the game than just battling. It IS very much like the pokemon series, but I feel a little more interesting just because dinosaurs at least once existed, and you have to put a little work into just getting them. The graphics aren't anything special, but they're passable. I really like playing with him, helping him out here and there to clean to carefully clean a fossil off or help out with a battle. I wish I had a DS myself so we could play together. I definitely reccomend this game.

I have yet to see any challenge in the game. maybe the battles down the road become challenging. however with the first fossil i had to excavate i got an 80% on without having to do much thinking. I think kids will like seeing the dinosaur come back to life. However people in there teens to adult will probablly find this game to easy. If you dont mind the game being to easy then you will enjoy it.
I have played the pokemon games and its very similar but pokemon games are more of a challenge so far.
