Wii Astro Boy too violent for me
16 March 2013
Summary: I bought this game for my 6 y.o. son who loves the American movie and books of Astro Boy and the original comic stories from Japan. It is rated E 10+ which I didn't realize, thought it was just E, and was unhappily surprised w/the level of violence. I still don't want my kids, even 10 and over to play violent video games. **The game is challenging though at least, the graphics are neat, and my son loves to play it.
Summary: My kids love this game! Pros: Easy setting gives you infinite lives. This game also has two player anytime you just jump in. It offers hours of fun for any player. Cons: A little repetitive, and not exactly like the movie.
Summary: What a waste of a game for an awesome movie. I bought it b/c it was only 14.99. Within the first 10 seconds of playing it I realized why. The game play is only side to side and the graphics and story line are terrible. My 7 year old enjoys it, but she would not be able to advance on to the next levels unless I played with her. It's very difficult for that age range. Very disappointing overall compared to other cartoon movie games and the lego games.
Summary: This is way to hard for anyone! The enemies are hard to destroy so you may use your specials but you use them hundreds of times and you run out of them. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!I am lucky beacause I just rented it.
Summary: Quite simply, one of the worst Movie-tie ins I have ever played. It harkens back to the old school side scrolling shoot-em up/beat-em ups from the original Nintendo. Yes, the graphics are better, but the gameplay is worse, and the story is all but non-existent and boring. Got this as a gift for my 5 year-old, and he would rather play Super Mario Bros (SMB) 3 or New SMB Wii.
