Summary: Parents need to know LEGO Friends is an adventure game based on Lego's popular collection of building toys aimed at girls. There's a strong consumer/product relationship here: Kids who play with the toys likely will want the game and vice versa.
Conclusion: Even though there is plenty of spoken voice, reading skill is still needed to navigate the menus and goals. 99 percent of the game is easy to figure out and play, but there were a couple of goals and jumping puzzles that were a tiny bit tricky.
Conclusion: Kid Factor: Some reading is required to get through many of the activities, but a persistent button-presser might be able to navigate through the game menus without understanding all the words.
Excerpt: Know what warms my heart? Companies that comprehend the difference between boys and girls. TT Games, hellbent games, and Warner Bros Interactive completely comprehend the differences. Lego Friends on the Nintendo 3DS is one of the pieces of proof.
Summary: Games aimed at children, be it boy or girl, should be crafted with the same care that go into more high-profile titles. Unfortunately, LEGO Friends feels like a rush job designed to make a quick buck and get parents to buy their kids the LEGO Friends figures and sets.
Conclusion: "LEGO Friends" est loin d’être un des meilleurs jeu de mode sur Nintendo 3DS par manque de créativité et également à des années lumières des jeux LEGO précédents bourrés d’action et d’humour. Cependant ce titre essaye de définir son propre style en un jeu de mode de LEGO pour fille.
