  1. Put it this way: if your kid gets stuck on a game like Open Season, you know something's amiss. Consider it a good test of whether videogames really are for them.
  2. Feels like a game that was made out of obligation to the movie. [Issue 17, p.74]

    Sweet characters in a great game. What can you say about a game that's perfect? It's so much fun and it's 4 player, so my whole family (hubby and 2 young ones) can play together. This is what gaming is all about to us! Full Review »

    I love this game simply for the way it brought joy to my children every minute that they played it yesterday. There are precious few GOOD games for children. This one shines. It's got the whole package. Great graphics, a wonderful storyline, and great game play functionality. My kids are great at the Xbxo controls, but their dad sucks! Even I found the game easy to control though. Full Review »

    Join those fun furry creatures as you relive the adventures from the movie. I don't have kids, but us adults can play kids games too, right? Ahem. Well, I love animated kids films and I love some movie based kid's games too (Shrek was a great game!). This one is top notch for the kid movie loving adult. Full Review »
