We rented for our 5 year old grandson - even through rated 10 and above. He managed very well with the game. It kept his interest, he was able to figure out puzzles with some help from us. A few places we as non gamers had to think a little bit on how to do something, but overall fairly easy game. Game could have a younger rating on it. I wouldn't pay full price for this game, but would be willing to pay the $20 price tag on the game.
This Shrek game is alot better than all the other games that we have played in the past. My wife and I both played co-op the whole game and very exciting all the way through. We would buy this game with no doubt. Its really fun and challenging all the way through and I would give this a 10 on all the shrek games that I have played. The shrek games on the PS2 and the Gamecube dont come close to the one on WII.
