The in-game tutorial is very good. My youngest (5) was able to keep up with the verbal instructions without missing much at all.
The game story is very entertaining (9/10). Unfortunately it is only a 1 player game.
As with most 1 Player games that claim to be 2 player games, the actual adventure is NOT 2 player. The producer of the game throws in a couple of mini-games to give the ability to claim the game as 2 player. Fact is, this is a 1 Player game. The kids play the 2 player mini-games one time and are board.
The good news is that the story content to the normal adventure game is good enough that the kids that are not playing enjoy watching. This is very rare.
Pros: Great Story, very good tutorial, adventureis lots of fun for the kids.
Cons: controls are quirky at best, not a lot of physical activity required, 1 Player only.
My son who is 4 really enjoyed this game and had a lot of fun with it. It has an easy to follow map to show you the direction you need to go and where points are at on the map. Very good graphics and funny people like in the movie. If it would've been for sale we would've kept it.
