Fun for everyone!
on June 29, 2012
I'm a 22 year old girl and I bought the game for myself! I loved the movie so much that when I saw there was a game for the movie I instantly needed to buy it! Boy did I make a good choice! As an avid player of M rated first person shooters (the ones with the blood and gore) this game was a very nice change from my go-to genre of games. The action was not in anyway scary or gross! In the game Merida uses both sword and bow to fight of enemies. Within that she must find different elements to power her sword and bow (Earth, wind, fire, ice) because some enemies are weak to a specific element. You also get mini puzzles that can be skipped (but shouldn't! They're cute and are fun to figure out! Think Portal for kids with three cute little bears). There is content for the kinect & co-op but, I haven't explored those yet. While being mainly a fighting game there is a good amount of platforming as well (jumping from place to place to advance) which can be a little hard if you haven't played a game like that before, but once you practice it becomes quite easy!
In the end this is a wonderful game that is cute, fun, and easy for the whole family to play! As I said, I'm way over the age of 10 and even I found this game wonderful and a little challenging at times! I can see there is replay value as well, i.e going back to play on different hardness levels!
Totally worth every penny!
