Summary: I wish I liked this game more, but it got too hard for me. I also wish my dad played it more with me. My dad is AWESOME at playing this game, but for some reason I'm better than him at Mario Kart Wii and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Anyways, I don't like this game too much because it's hard for kid gamers (me) to play.
Summary: Play this with my 6 year old and it is Okay, not great. Only thing I wish they had done was have some secret codes so you don't have to restart levels all the time. Young kids get frustrated easily and eventually the game will start collecting dust rather than continually trying a level. As my son says it gets boring doing the same level over and over.
Summary: My 8 year old son loves this game! He is a big fan of all of the Mario games and this is very similar. I enjoy watching him play because the backgrounds are so clear, vibrant and detailed. I'm not a gamer myself, but will occasionally join him on an adventure. It is easy to learn how to play, and a younger child would enjoy the game as well. I did not find anything offensive about the game, but would have liked more of an intellectual challenge. Puzzles to solve, maybe?
