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 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 bought this game for my 4yr old grandson who loves all things Pirate. I decided on this one after reading a lot of reviews on games related to Pirates. So glad I decided on this one. He just loves it and it is the new favorite. Some areas of the game are a little more difficult, but w/the help of his Dad, he can play them and this will be a game that he can play for a long time. I highly recommend it!
Great for those looking for a "Castle Crashers" for the WIii

Summary: Well you may or may not have heard of the fun beat-em-up known as "Castle Crashers" for the PS3/Xbox360, but if you did you would know it is quite a fun comical game. You and 3 others could choose your own knight and battle your way through hordes of enemies collecting new weapons and leveling up as you progressed. A nice new turn for the Genre throwing in RPG elements made for a perfect match.
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: I was hesitant to buy this game at first, but the gameplay images and the fact that it was 4 players convinced me. My gamble paid off big time! This game is loads of fun! Multi-player is better, but single player is still good. It follows the same formula of "Castle Crashers" when it comes to leveling up, finding stronger swords, and unlocking characters, and this is not a bad thing.
Summary: This is simple, clean, cartoon like fun. Some parts are challenging, but most of it is just simple hack-and-slash. Lots of funny characters and funny moments. There aren't many goof 4-player beat-em-ups for Wii, so it's a pretty good buy.
