This game is suitable for pretty much anyone, from small child to adult. My 4 year old daughter loves this game so I bought it for her. She learned how to use the controls pretty quickly. Very good graphics, entertaining game. Try it out, I think you will enjoy it.

Toy Story 3 puts you into the role of your favorite Toy Story characters Woodie,Buzz, and Jessie. I rented this game for my 3 year old son and he didn't put it down for two months (much to the dismay of my gameq). The only problem with that was eventually I was fighting to play with him. Obviously this game cant reach a scale of depth and playability as Skyrim or other games we adults play, but i found that beyond the storyline (that was cleverly developed) the toy box mode puts game fans in the creators seat of a giant gameboard world with a witty enthralling adventure. Start off in a western town with a few shanty buildings then unlock and purchase new buildings, paints, accessories, cars, and new worlds with their own quests. Customize your town any way you want it, including it's residents. If your into achievements, go ahead and find every toy capsule and get every gold star, no really try, you might go insane looking for all these but it's an achievment well earned. Exploring and creating open worlds with Bullseye and the Toy Story gang is a well developed and extremely clever journey, for an adult it holds up for months of girlfriend stealing your controller fun, for younger ones or any true fans of the movies, it's a must for your library. It may not be a perfect game but it gets a 10 for being everything a video game should be. Fun!

It may just be me, but I rented this game for my son, and it seems too hard for him at times. I was aiming for a kids game, and figured Toy Story 3 would be a good choice for my almost 4 year old.
I decided to rent him his own game; since I would walk into the living room with my Saints Row 3 game unpaused and my child playing it! I figured he could pick up the controller and just play with Toy Story, and that was not the case. Over time he has gotten used to using the controller, and does not need my help nearly as much. But there are still pivotal parts of the game where I have to take over and do it for him. My son is a very smart kid too, he had noooo problem shooting pedestrians in Saints Row 3, but of course it was a much to violent game. But however when he has to aim Buzz Lightyears laser in game it is nearly impossible. The puzzles are a bit challenging for him as well, even with the hints.
Bottom line, this is a fun game, but I wouldn't suggest renting this for young kids. However I can find myself lost in this game, my son pleading for a turn lol, and I find myself saying "Just one more minute, I'm trying to help you...". What a bold faced lie.
