The co-op in this game is great to play with a young child. My 4 year old son plays as the second character and he loves it. The 2nd player can die as many times as needed without impacting the flow of the game. This is great for a young child just learning how to play. I cannot recommend this game enough if you love to play games with your children. I find it pretty entertaining myself.
I highly recommend! Graphics are great, the buttons are simple, the story line is good and challenging. The game play is similar to Super Mario Brothers and Crash Bandicoot. However, it is much harder, children under 10 will have a difficult time. Give it a try you will not be disappointed!
