This game is not going to light the world on fire but it is fun enough to play through. I got about 550 achievement points on my first run through. Which made it worth renting on it's own. It took me about 6 hours to finish which included trying to find all of the hidden items. WAAAYYY to easy for adults but a good fit for kids. My main complaint is that you can't adjust the camera and it changes angles on jumping parts almost always making you fall until you can anticipate it. Playing Donkey is funny and the finishing moves are entertaining enough to make you do them every time. Multi player is tacked on and consists of mini games.
I found this game to be entertaining and fun. There is not too much too it, but it is what it is, an animated movie game. This is a good family game and one that you can get a lot of enjoyment out of. My kids sat back and laughed as they watched me play through the campaign. Good game.
