Summary: My daughter is 4 and has never played a video game. She has fallen in love with the dancing princesses and thus we surprised her with the game. She is having a great time. It is good far all audiences and while she still needs help it's fun that the whole family can enjoy. Even my son likes to watch us play the game and cheer us on. So if your kid likes the movies she'll get a kick out of the game.
Summary: I'll cut to the chase: 1. Terrible graphics! My 4-year old asked me, "Mommy, what's wrong with their faces?" 2. Gender-bias in that the voices sounded like those from a cheap anime video. How many guy-oriented video games have the actual athletes' voices? I'd pay and extra $10 for a game with the original voices. 3. It's easy to get lost if you don't have the best sense of direction....what 4-year old does? The "progress" chart was pointless.
Summary: My five-year-old daughter chose this to rent from a video store as her first Playstation game. It's been a frustrating experience. Barbie is awkward to control and does not always respond quickly and accurately to the controller. Her goal is to meet up with each of her eleven sisters in very girly environments and ultimately find a magic elixir to cure their poisoned father.
Summary: Ever wondered why little girls don't play videogames? Take a look at Barbie (or Bratz for that matter) and you know why. Low production value and un-imaginative Game-play. Too bad, this one could have been fun.
Summary: My daughter is 4 years old and LOVES this game. It is easy to navigate and control for her, she can understand the plot, and it provides simple spoken directions. She had been very frustrated in the past because her older sisters would play PS2 games and she never had one that she could play, but now she has her own and she is thrilled.
Summary: This game is just enough of a challenge for my 5-yr old daughter who is just learning how to use the Playstation controller. The game lets you start over as many times as you need to get over jumps, etc. It has a good 'plot' that my daughter can understand and relate to the purpose of the game.
Summary: This is the first PS2 game my 7-year-old has tried, and she loves it! The game is very patient with young gamers: Barbie doesn't die, and every time she jumps the wrong way and falls into the water, the game starts again back at the spot of the jump, rather than going back to the beginning. The tasks are simple and varied.
Summary: My 10 year old played the whole game in under an hour. She said she liked it, it just wasn't long enough. I gave it 3 stars because she liked it. The cost was too much for the length of the gameplay.
