Bad

Disappointing and NOT educational

I got this for my 6 year old Diego and Dora fan. She beat it in 2 hours; a greuling two hours for me because it is extremely repetative. Players are not expected to read, count, or do any problem solving of any kind. For a safari game, it is also mysteriously lacking of any relevant information about the African safari or it's wildlife.

By far the most disappointing aspect of this is the concept. You must save the elephants that have been turned to stone by a mean magician. How does this teach our kids about responsibility, being wards of the earth, and protecting our wildlife? It was a lost opportunity to teach kids about pollution, hunting, overdevelopment, etc - as the reason why elephants need to be saved, and to take responsibility for the damage as human beings.

The only pro to this game is the encouragement of movement in various ways with the WII remote (swimming, climbing, beating a drum).

It is a side-scrolling linear walkthrough game with no challenge whatsoever. I expected more from the creators of Dora the Explorer.

My 4 year old son was entertained with this for about 3 hours, which is how long it took him to beat it. After that, he didn't want to play it anymore, so I guess that speaks for itself.

Glad I rented from GameFly instead of buying in a store, that's $40 saved already...

It's ok, but short.

Got this for my 3 and a half year old daughter and she beat it in about four hours with only a little help.

There's a few things you can do after that, but it wasn't enough to keep her interested beyond a few days.
