Played this game with my 5-year-old and I thought it was frustrating, tedious and boring. The graphics are good but so what. That's to be expected nowadays. I realize it's probably more geared for an 8-year-old than a middle-age guy and a pre-schooler but I still think it was just a tedious experience getting to the 2nd level. It's maybe worth a rental if you have children but no way is this thing worth the money to actually buy it.
