5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Console Game for Young Children (3-5) April 29, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have tried a number of educational and not-so-educational games targeted at children and none compares to this one in simplicity. And I mean that in the best way possible.

For this age group (3-6), Simplicity Is Essential For Fun!

There are only two controls to master: 1) Movement via the Thumb Stick -or- Direction pad and 2) Action via any button.

ALL buttons function as the Action button. Unless your child hits start, then all other buttons will activate the Action. In most cases, this is simply Jumping, but the game includes a lot of other entertaining actions such as Stopping Swiper, sending Boots to go digging for Treasure, Catapulting over obstacles, etc. Whichever button your child prefers or can most easily reach with their small hands will work.

Journey to the Purple Planet plays just like a typical Dora episode - several episodes in fact because you advance to new adventures. You play as Dora & Boots, but all the familiar characters make appearances (eg, Backpack, Map, Isa, Swiper, etc.). If your child enjoys the show, then they will enjoy this game.

It provides some opportunity to explore, but is somewhat On Rails. That can be irritating in mature games, but for young ones it keeps them from getting lost or off track. Dora & Boots can roam around, but there are boundaries and there are also clearly marked paths to lead them toward their next goals.

Objectives are simple - find items, collect large glowing gems, etc. Children do not have to be absolutely perfect - being close to an objective is usually good enough. And Dora never loses - eg, she doesn't get stuck in the sand, simply blocked by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind game for kids. December 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought this present for our two girls a year ago, and it has been great. The directions are self-explanatory. It is simple enough that I don't have to sit there and help them every 5 minutes, but challenging enough to make them want to play it for 2 hours straight. There is no losing lives, starting over, or anything like that. Just a fun little adventure on 5 different "planets." Even a 7 year old boy that came over wanted to play it over Curious George, Finding Nemo, and Animal Crossings because it wasn't so frustrating (he is a novice gamer). It is an excellent design for 4-6 year olds, the only such one available for the Gamecube
