Summary: we actually borrowed this from the library before buying it, so we wouldn't be out anything if he didn't like it. but like it he does. i'd give it 5 stars, but he did have a little trouble in the beginning. he was just roaming around town not knowing what to do. but eventually he figured it out.
Summary: I play this , when tired of fast paced games. You go to different places to solve mysteries. You find clues , earn outfits, recruit others to help with other missions, collect items to help agents. The reason for four stars instead of five , is that you have to save your progress yourself. You also have things you have to fix( you salvage parts), analyze( four types of molecules)matching up so you find what it is, also pick locks.
Summary: I bought this for my 8 year old son. He loves it. I really like the fact that it helps him develop his reading skills. The characters speak gibberish with the dialogue written out on the bottom of the screen. He just thinks he's playing a fun game, but he is practicing his reading skills. The first few times he played he needed help with the reading (you can't solve the mystery or know what's going on without reading the dialogue) but now he does it on is own.
Summary: My 9 year old bought this game and he loved it. He played it every chance he got and finally finished the game in about 2 weeks. After that there was no use playing it anymore. It was solved and there were no more secrets. It was fun and challenging and he liked the mystery of it all.
