I read reviews claiming how much fun this game was, but I only was willing to listen to much. Then I played the game. The reviewers downplayed how much fun this game is. Yes, if you're going for trophies, the game will get tedious for the last few, but that's not the game play. While I was playing the toybox mode (which opens up as soon as you beat the first level of the story mode), I couldn't stop smiling. It's funny, simple, and very enjoyable. A few of the mini-missions may take you a while, but there's nothing here that a twelve year old kid can't do without working too hard: heck a 7 year old could get most of the game, but it might take a while in parts. It was so engaging that my girlfriend walked in while I was playing, and kept laughing ans asking me to shoot, or throw balls, or run into this character or that. And she doesn't normally like games (well, Bioshock 1&2 and Dead Space are exempted, but those are for artistic style).
If you're still undecided, just remove all the other games on your queue (save the list somewhere else) and make this the only game, until gamefly ships it to you. You won't be disappointed. Just remember to add all your other games back to the queue once they ship this game.
Since I give the game such high praise, why do I only score it a 9? One of the trophies glitched on me, and I had to replay the toybox mode a second time. Luckily that only took me 75 minutes to unlock the glitched trophy (which then allowed for my platinum), but it was still annoying.
This game had really good graphics and fun mini-games to play, but the story mode levels were a boring and there wasn't much content. The story line was okay, but they should have put more time into the story levels because that's what me and my brother like to play the most.

This game is imaginative and loads of fun. It's unfortuante that the game controls put a damper on your gameplaying enjoyment! many times the controls are off, and inconsistent, leading to VERY frustrating re-do moments.
Another (small) downside is how short the storyline is.
If it weren't for these two things, the game would be a 10! it's a blast
