Summary: Totally disappointed. You can only play so far in one story before you have to buy more stories?!? My kids (and I) were totally frustrated and they haven't played it since. Skip this one. Gave it two stars because I don't like it suffices. Don't HATE it, just disappointed.
Summary: I got this game for my little nephew is he 4 years old and loves Elmo and the Cookie monster. The problem with this game is that kinect sensor does not work well with this game we try adjusting it in different way,even my older nephew,got frustrated trying to change pages,we end changing this game,great idea if it would work.
Summary: Hard to navigate... Takes a while to actually start playing...you have to sit through video each time you start up game. My daughter gets bored wating to get to the parts were you actually play. Wish the game was easier to navigate...would be nice if you can easily select what level you want to play.
Summary: We had very high hopes for this game for our 9- and 3- year-old. They love Happy Action Theater, and we thought they would enjoy playing as a couple of their favorite Sesame Street. And it is a cute game, once you can get it loaded and get on the right page and get the Kinect to work, but it takes 15 to 20 minutes just to make all that happen, and by then the kids are frustrated and bored, and I'm frustrated and annoyed. We'll be trading this game in.
Summary: I'm reviewing this strictly from the perspective of a parent with a 3 - 4 year old. This game is way too hard for a child that age. The game seems to be designed for that age group, but the hand motions and body positioning are too complicated for a small child to grasp. The pushing motion for changing clothes in one game doesn't seem to register her movements, the running and jumping is too fast for her.
Summary: Bought this for my son who is almost 4 for Christmas. It'd gotten pretty good reviews so I felt that it was a safe bet to spend my money on. BIG mistake! While the idea of playing with the Sesame Street characters is great, pretty much everything else about this game is such a pain in the rear. The "menu" is extremely hard to navigate and took two grown adults to figure out.
Summary: We bought an Xbox with Kinect for the family for Christmas, and this game was one we got to go with it for our four year old. She loves Sesame Street, and I thought it would be a hit. However, it is too difficult to control, and is extremely frustrating for her and us. Once we can actually get her into a chapter, she has lots of fun and for the most part she has no problems playing. But, trying to get into the chapters is maddening.
