Summary: Parents need to know that Despicable Me: The Game -- Minion Mayhem is a completely different experience than the Despicable Me game that is available for Wii, PSP, and PS2. This DS version is a strategy-based game. And while there's very little in the way of violence (or anything else that could be deemed objectionable), the challenge level of these puzzle-like levels is quite high, which is why we put the game's target age at 10.
Excerpt: is based off of, I can’t really attest to how much of a movie spin-off game it is. In fact, the game’s tie to the movie almost feels like an afterthought when you actually play through the game. The game’s minions are cute, and the story seems to be lightly-seasoned with a Despicable Me-type flavor, but it seems to forget the movie’s target audience with the inclusion of some very difficult (and sometimes exceptionally precise) puzzles.
