To get things started, this is a kids game. With that in mind I told my five year old neice it was on the way. Up until yesterday she only ever sat down and watched games with me so this was the very first game she played. There are very few things she gets excited over and she seemed to not only like, but love this game and look forward to every time we'd be able to sit down and play it together so from a child's perspective it seems like they would greatly enjoy this game. From an adult's perspective it was a very quick and easy, fun game to play. Unfortunately it was rather glitchy and even though it took a couple of days to beat, Carl or Russel got stuck more than a couple of times. Despite the few glitches this game may have it is fun and enjoyable for all ages. If you're looking for a game with easy trophies, rent this. If you're looking for a good game for kids then pick this up. Platinum is easily attainable with little to no effort.

I enjoy the easy flow of this game. This reminds me a lot of the simplicity of Nintendo back in the 90's. There isn't much non-sense of making combinations to achieve points. The game is very straight forward. For those of you who enjoy the newer kind of games that involve many combos at once, this is not for you.

Ok... I am a 25yr old kid... Lol... However this game was horrible... It was very slow, and the whole 7 levels me and my wife played together was made even more annoying by a pack of dogs, that are harder than (you know what) to accurately kill. That said we gave up at level 7 and didn't proceed, The cut scenes are immensely long, and took most of the game time away from us. Also how they thought this game would be great for children is beyond me. They probably figure a kid is gonna want it and cry till mommy and daddy give in. This game Sucked!!!
