Summary: The controls are loos and the game at times was frustrating to play by your self the computer partner would half of the time stand there while you would be trying to accomplish a task and not protect you. We would have to play two players to even advance on some of the levels. Poor game all around.
Summary: My four year old is able to play this, not well, but not poorly, with a parent helping. We prefer the Lego games, but really wanted one with Spider-Man for him. My only pet peeve is it "dumbs down" the characters the same way it does in the marvel super hero squad show, which I didn't watch until after we got the game. It's not really a downfall, just makes it less fun for the adults.
Summary: Great game but the controlls can be a little complicated for a 5 year old like my son. The good thing is, once they figure it out, which doesn't take long for kids these days, they'll be smashing and blowing things up all by theirselves. This is another fun team game with good storyline, humor, and plenty of replay value. This game will end up getting more game play on the PS3 then most of the games I have that cost 3 times what this was.
