Since it was Lego, I thought it would be fun for my 8 year old son. It's quite hard for him. It's a game for a tween or teen. He's making it through the game due to the walkthrough videos we have watched on youtube. If we didn't have the vidoes we would have sent it back already.
I thought it was fun. . .for the first hour you play it. Then, you get bored and want another game. Multi-player was O.K. but I found it very annoying when you where away from your partner it made a double screen which was very suckish, by the way. I suggest not getting it unless you don't get bored easily.
