Summary: We ordered this for christmas in 2013 - I guess I should have looked at the dates of the reviews I read because I was shocked to receive a CD rom for a Nintendo DS game in 2013! Obviously it will not play in a DS, and trying to salvage the Christmas present that was supposed to be a DS game since we got a DS game for each sibling, we tried it on every computer we have, and it was not compatible with any current platform (even grandpa's old computer was "too modern" for...
Summary: I bought this as a birthday present for my 14yr daughter who loves animals and trivia. When she played it, it was way too easy. This game is targeted more for younger kids, maybe 5 - 7yr. Hope this helps in your purchase.
Summary: When i first saw this game i thought that it looked like really good fun, but when it arrived in the post and i started to play it i found out that it was really disapointing. It only has 4 levels and when you complete them all you just have to start over again. After a while it gets really boring and you end up never using it again. So i would advise people not to buy this game unless they have a very young child that do not like adventure.
Educational wildlife game for the Nintendo DS - Animal Genius
3 July 2009
Excerpt: This review is for the game Animal Genius for the Nintendo DS and the game was developed by Big Blue Bubble and published by Ubisoft. The aim of the game is to go round five different levels and learn more about the animals in each area. The game is educational, and is based around the five main levels, rain forest, arctic, sea, grasslands and woodlands. The problem however with educational software is that it is difficult to merge both educational value and fun value.
Pros: Has some educational value
Cons: A bit too basic, children are likely to grow bored quite quickly
Summary: I ordered this game for my daughter who is 10 years old and mad about animals. She completed the game within 48 hours. This game will be ok for a 3 or 4 year old but not older. Do not waste your money on this.
