Weak

Educational?? Overkill

First annoying thing is how high the camera is. You are looking down on the scene from WAY above.
How you direct your character is to point at an area and she will go. Or point to an object and she will pick it up. I didn't like this because I didn't feel like part of the story.
The voices are also cheesy.
Each mission she is given has something to do with human carelessness. Fires, littering, toxic waste dumped in a watering hole, an oil pipe leaking and contaminating the environment, poaching... they go on and on and on and on... I began to feel like all people just need to be shot so that the animals can survive and be happy.
Overkill. I didn't even get very far into the game and I was feeling sick to my stomach.
All the animals work great together with your character to fix the mess humans made, and once the area is good, we go to another area that is just as horrible.

So I was torn. I am an animal lover/ tree hugger. On the one hand, I thought it was great to show kids the results of carelessness. But on the other hand... it just made me angry at so much trouble we are capable of. And I don't think there could be THAT much trouble in any one area. I felt it was a bit unfair to make humans out to be so horrible and uncaring.

So I had to stop and send it back.
