Summary: Pirates Plundarrr is a 2D beat 'em up for the Wii which feels like Castle Crashers. While not many people know of this game, I think they should. This is a very challenging and charming 2D brawler that fans of the genre will enjoy.
Summary: This game is tons of fun. It is also challenging. The more you play the better your characters get. The only issue that I had with the game is that it was very confusing to start with. They don't tell you that you have to hold the controller sideways to get it to work.
Summary: I have to set time limits for this game, because my 6 year old would play it all the time. What I like about the game is that my son and my husband and I can all play together at the same time, and my son's character gets killed more often than the adults, but we can just bring him back and continue on with the game. Great game if you have a little one who wants to play like the grown-ups.
Summary: My 8 yr old son played this at a friend's house. He lost interest in it in a few weeks. When I went to sell it at a local game/DVD swap shop- they rejected it due to the high amount of scratches. (which were there when WE bought it) So, I gave it away. He did enjoy it for awhile, it just didn't hold his interest, though. (Maybe for a 6 yr old, it'd hold up longer?
Summary: I bought this game for my children because it looked like a fair enough trip to the Castle Crashers brand of gameplay. And from the looks of things I was very much correct. The kids had a blast with this game for quite a while. It didn't have the staying power that Castle Crashers seemed to have, but maybe they were just getting burned out after hours of both. But I would definitely recommend this game at a budget price point.
Summary: I bought this game last summer for my 8 yr old's birthday. It is the first game that my 4 yr old has been able to learn to play on the wii and it's so fun to watch all 3 of my kids (4 and 8 yr old boys, 6 yr old girl) work together playing this game and get so excited as they beat all the levels. They play it all the time! They have beaten the whole game now and are convinced there is a 2nd one, but I can't find one. Hopefully there will be a follow-up game!
Summary: I got this game for my kids, 8 and 10 year old boys, thinking it would be a mild diversion for them. They became obsessed with it. They thought it was funny and challenging. It was accidentally left at someones house and they missed it terribly and tried saving up for another one because they couldn't wait for it. When we did get it back, they immediately took up with it again and didn't stop until they had defeated the game.
Summary: I bought this game for my son, age 6. The graphics were shoddy and the controllers don't work terribly well to move the character in the games (we have the Wii Motion). I had read the reviews before buying, I wish that someone had warned me how bad the graphics were and that this is a difficult game for kids (and adults). Very disappointed.
