My 5 & 7 year old boys really enjoyed this game from the moment it came through the door! They really enjoyed the excitement of being all the famous characters they have watched and enjoyed!! They played enthusiastically and "mastered" all the levels with ease! Easy to play and does create fun challenges along the way!
I got this rental to play with my 5 year old. With 360 there are so few games that parent and child can play together, but thought I would give this one a shot. It's too hard for kids and can be quite frustrating for them as they will repeatedly come in last place due to the overly aggressive AI drivers. Visually, the tracks are fun so we got about 2 hours of enjoyment out of this before he was bored.
Take a pass on this one if you are looking for bonding time with your kids 5 or below.
