My 7 year old thought this game was just okay. He was disappointed that the graphics in the game looked nothing like the commercial. He played it for a while, but quickly lost interest. We purchased him the playstation 2 version, and he loves it. He already beat it on the first level, and is now working on beating it on the master level. Clearly, the playstation version is holding his attention better than the ho-hum 2 dimensional DS version did.
