Summary: I got this game some years back, and I'm not too big of a fan of it. It's a nice game... You can play as Penny and bolt to stop calico from proceeding with his evil deeds, but I don't like it for some reason. I'm finding that it seems movie-based video games on the ds aren't very good.. But that's just my opinion. This is a 3D games with fairly good graphics and pretty good sound. There is plenty of action in this game, and I have yet to have troubles with many glitches.
Summary: I bought this game because it looked like it would be fun for my six year old. He really enjoyed the game at first until he got about half way through. The game uses a "sonic bark", to use it the player is supposed to blow or bark into the microphone. It does not work for us. We tried any which way. Unfortunately, there is a part in the game where the only way to move forward is to use the sonic bark.
Summary: There is one mechanic that greatly disappointed me about this game compared to Cradle of Rome. Each time you fail a stage in Cradle of Rome, you still received your supplies you earned doing the stage. In Cradle of Athena, all of those supplies are reset. It has made those frustrating levels even more frustrating because you are not gaining anything for your attempts.
Summary: While not the most graphically good looking game, it was fun nonetheless. Not very challenging either. I've played all of the "Cradle of..." games and if you like match 3 games, I recommend this one to add to your collection.
Summary: I had played and loved the bolt wii game so I thought the ds version would be just as good. Ah it was not as good as the wii game but it was still one of the best games I've ever played. My six year old brother has been playing it for a while now and has no problems once so ever but does need help reading a little so if you want a good game for your kids pick this one. But you might have to do a little reading here and there.
Summary: I bought this game for my son, who is five years old, but used to games that are for above his age. He did like the game, but was not able to play it himself - there are different courses you have to jump through and it took a while (which was good). Then the next course is very tricky where you have to place "mirrors", so a ray of light hits through a number og boxes and misses others. Here I and my sons father had to step in and work together to solve it.
Excerpt: Bolt Disney Interactive Studios Action/Adventure The nintendo ds video game of the film Bolt. I think Disney was correct to put the recommended age for this game at 7+, there is a lot of reading required to understand what to do. The game is based on the film where Bolt is a super dog or so he thinks he is and Penny the little girl from the film, trying to get her dad back as he has been kidnapped, and bolt is her loyal companion.
