Summary: I'm not necessarily a brainiac when it comes to video games, but this game is the worst I've ever played. The individual games are played in a view that you don't know if you are the offense, defense or just a bystander. Very confusing on how to pick a game ... The overall setup/layout is 100% strange! Honestly, if I need to look up instructions on how to know if I'm the batter or the pitcher, to the donation pile it goes!!
Summary: I recently played this game when I took my two daughters on a playdate and everyone really enjoyed it -- from the sounds to the characters to the games. Definitely worth a try. There were four kids taking turns playing it too, and they had a lot of fun maneuvering through the different street games. I read some of the other reviews and I have to say that none of the kids playing were bored at all -- they ranged in age from preschool to fourth grade.
Summary: This game is really boring. Thankfully, I got it really cheap on sale because I'm sure my kids will never play it again. We are big fans of most sports games like wii sports, wii sports resort, Outdoor challenge games, etc. Unfortunately, unless you are a very young child, you'll grow bored of this very quickly. It is too easy even on the difficult level and very repetitive.
cute, but DULL! only ONE game uses the balance board

Summary: menu/map - there are good background sounds, but dull music. the map is you running around in 3rd person overhead view of a detailed street to talk to kids in front of various buildings to start a game. barely any non-game starting kids & almost no people, etc. to populate it otherwise. kids only talk in text bubbles as usual. in gameplay, there are some background movements of trains, bulldozers, etc., no kid voices really except some general laughing if any.
