Summary: bought this a present for my 10 yr old Simpsons obsessive son. He is quite new to computer games but loves it. A good mix of ease, challenge and comedy to keep him interested. Bought second hand & very happy with the quality.

Pros: Amazing graphics, lots of collectables and unlockables
Cons: Awkward camera, bad wii controls, repetitive gameplay

What makes this game great for me is the fact that it is 2 player Co-operative with lots of Wii mini games that are good fun to play against a friend. In all, this is well worth the money in my eyes.
