Now I haven't actually got a look in on the game, but having watched Big Boy (aged 4) and Top Ender (8) play the game in Story Mode I can tell that it is easy enough for them to understand and to be able to work out that each of the different characters have different strengths to perform different tasks, (The fact that when the characters get stuck and tell you they need another character also helps but hey lets let the kids think they worked this one out themselves!).
The children are slowly working their way through the game and have even played Circus Mode with Daddy which is more about playing different games than working their way through different levels. All in all I think that they will finish the game some time this month, with no adult intervention and I think that's a great thing. I mean wouldn't you love just for once not to hear;
"MUM? I CAN'T GET PAST THIS LEVEL!"
just once when the children were playing a computer game? I now not hearing it is music to my ears!
I've read a few reviews of the game where people are saying that it is very simple and for children, well of course it is it's rated as PEGI 3 which means it's suitable for all ages and I think it's especially good for younger children like BB.
And just so I'm not the only one who keeps singing Afro Circus every time they hear Madagascar 3...
We were sent a copy of the game to review.
