Amazing Kids Game

I have to start out by saying that as many people that rented this game I assume they were going simply for the trophies. That was my sole intention for renting this game with hopes of blowing through it as fast as I could and mailing it back just as fast.

I was able to go through it relatively easy and only got caught up on a few challenges toward the end.

While playing through the game I was really surprised at all of the different gaming elements that this game includes. From the standard 3D platforming to side scrolling, side scrolling shooting like a R-Type game, 3D Flying shooting like Star Fox, etc. I think it was interested how so many different elements were included into one game. At no point did it feel repetitive or like a chore to play the game. I think that for a game focused obviously for kids that this is actually a very fun game to play through.

I am by no means saying that this is the next game that should be in your GameQ. I am however saying that for children this is great and for those looking for an easy platinum and a good game this is one to play. It doesn't take much time and it is not a chore by any stretch.

Great game

One of the best kid's games out there. Although the Multiplayer option was a bit off, the controls were tremendous compared to most games in this genre, the graphics/sound FX were equally great, and the storyline was perfect for the 6-12 age group. The side quests weren't that challenging for anyone that was trying to get the platinum, as I let him plow through the storyline, while I took over to beat the clock in the sidequests, which generally give you a second to spare.

All in all, highly recommended.

Ice Age was supprisingly fun. The game offers variety as you switch between characters with different gameplay. If you have not seen the movie then the story will lose you, but this did not bother me since the actuall gameplay was so good. Trophy Hunters will love this game since it is a very quick and easy Platinum. GameFly wins again!
