Summary: My daughter loved the original Kinectimals so we decide to get the Bears edition. Originally we were going to upgrade through XBOX Live, but when I saw the cost, I decided to check online for the physical edition. This was a better deal, included the disc and a great stuffed bear as well. The game is a blast to play and my daughter loves having the option to play on the bear island or the cat island.
Summary: My 5-yr toddler son loves this game, has been playing for over a year now. Purchased him the original Kinectimals, but played it so much the disc went bad (from his mis-handling). At any rate thought I'd pick this up for him to replace the original game, but to my disappointment, this is NOT a new game, it just includes the ability of adding "Bears" to the existing game.
Summary: My daughter really likes animals and she was very excited that she could have the matching bear in the game. There is some frustration with her trying to figure out how to save and exit or how to change what she is doing but she will get the hang of it. Other than that frustration she loves the game.
Summary: I thought my 4 year old girl would love this. The bear was slightly played with and the game was too frustrating for her. She had a hard time getting it to recognize her and do what she wanted.
