A few days ago, when my wife was putting the girls to sleep, I showed the game to our son and mentioned that we could play for an hour, if he wanted to. He was very excited, about playing the game.
We had a great time playing the game. He spent a lot of time, mining for gold, while I off on other missions. We only played an hour, but there are some things that stand out about the game.
- The controls are easy enough for kids to not get frustrated with
- When playing with two people, it is a split-screen game, so even though each person might be on different areas of the map, you both can make progress. (This a problem in the lego video games, where if the players don't stick together, one can get stuck at the edge of the viewable area of the map.)
