This game unites generations
I read a review which suggested this game was not great for adults. Wrong! I'm 52 and have a 4 year old son who was entranced by his ds and he and I have had a great time exploring different levels. He doesn't understand the tongue-in-cheek humour (not having seen an IJ film until recently) but he has learned a great deal from working his way thru the game with me. Like anything else, he's moved on to other games without finding all the artefacts, but this was a great starter for him and a good re-introduction for me to gameworld. I'm hooked again. This game has been criticised for the fact that the character never "dies", but for me in teaching my son I feel that we have both benefitted. Graphics are not the best but in every other way it kicks serious *ss. I go after the artefacts from time-to-time when the wean is abed, and as someone who remembers "paddle-battle" in the 70's I would say this is a game for dads who want to recapture the child in them!
