  1. Like all of the Jump Start products, Escape From Adventure Island is a quality product that would be a welcome addition to any family’s library of Wii games.

    Sure, it didn't make Spike's VGA list, but Escape from Adventure Island is a hit with its target audience. Rest assured, your 5-9 year old will enjoy the game - and the learning.
  3. JumpStart Escape from Adventure Island will probably never win an award from any of the critical masses. But the game is a big hit with the intended folks, and is a surprisingly solid learning game.

    Jump Start: Escape From Adventure Island is a nice and educational game for children. The game has good graphics and the soundtrack just suits the game right. Unfortunately the game has the occasional hickups and long loading times.
  5. Personally I feel the title could have benefited greatly with a little more polish, but for its target audience, the faults are far less important. If you are a parent or sibling looking for a wholesome and educational title to buy, this is your game.
  6. It is fun, educational and entertaining. Yes, there are some flaws, but they are not serious enough to fail this game.
  7. Jump Start: Escape from Adventure Island has good intentions and a noble goal: to teach via the fun and accessibility of the Wii. But its gameplay feels rushed, and its less-than-inspired presentation put a very disappointing damper on things.
