I really liked the game, and enjoyed playing it. The biggest set back for me was that I beat the game, and considering I'm not a big gamer, thats saying a lot. Plus I was able to remember the levels, so I won't get much out of replaying it.
Otherwise, it was a cool game the first time around.
This is the game for you. I always look for reviews that tell me if smaller kids can get some enjoyment out of it and I am having hard times finding them. So I will see if I can fill the void. I rented this game because my 4 year old son is getting into all of the I Spy Jr games and the HBO videos. He was able to navigate the easy to use menu quite well and work the puzzles up to a respectable level. Some of it as expected is above his ability to play but there is enough here to keep him occupied for a while and then some to keep him challenged for a good long while to come.
So while he was entertained my wife and I were not left behind. Ultimate I Spy has enough in the puzzles to involve us as well all playing together to solve the next puzzle. And as you solve puzzles you unlock side games that can be played any time you choose. These games are simple, fun, and engaging for the whole family. My 2 year old daughter got in o n the action with these games.
Ultimate I Spy is good for toddlers with help, great for kids 6 - 12 years of age, and a fun puzzler for those who enjoy puzzles. I give it a 7 out of 10.
