Summary: My 6 year old loves this game and he can be quite picky. It helps he always enjoyed the book too. I as a parent appreciate the fact that its pretty harmless- no killing or shooting a bad guy. Basically Max running through a wild forest swatting bees and climbing vines. It's refreshing and he loves it when he makes it far enough along to interact with the wild things. They even cheer him on.
Summary: I love the book and movie, and I did like this game. It is not terribly difficult. I think it is more of a children's game than a game for adults. In terms of general gaming, if you're not into the book, then pass on this game. As a game, it's not fantastic except for the theme.
