My sister in law was surprised PETA allowed this game to even come out, as your character can and will get shot at by hunters. No fear though, as you can shoot back by throwing your moose partner, rabbits, skunks, and a variety of other animals at the hunters. Bored, pick up the hunter and throw him over the cliff.

This is everything you would expect from a kids game, linear with plenty of hints, cute characters with little backstory, and entertainment value. The mini games aren't the best, but they do entertain. Even the mini games in the story, like shaking the bear's butt to get the porcupine off, are cute and fun. I bought this game from Gamespot in a 3 game package just to have on hand for a visit from my nephew. However, when it was time for lunch my sister in law an I were glued to the couch laughing hysterically at the cute little things in the game and unable to leave the game. It is a blast and not a bad way to boost your gamerscore either.

Cons: just like Cars you have to figure out the camera angles a little bit in order to really be successful in the game.

Pros: fun and addicting even for adults. I also enjoyed the idea of earning points to improve the character's attributes. It is like a baby step to RPG games where you have some freedom to build up your character's abilities.

I originally rented this game for the easy Achievement points. I ended up enjoying my time playing it (unlike King Kong which was a drag to get through).

The game camera is probably the most annoying thing about this game. You are constantly trying to reset it and if you dont you will probably fall of a ledge and just waste more time getting through this game.

It was pretty fun throwing bunnies, skunks, and squirrels around and all the funny (and by the end tiresome) noises they made.

The graphics are not that bad. It has a little replay ability due to the unlockable minigames. But the replay value is geared mostly towards kids.

This game is probably the best children's geared/themed game for the 360.
