Good for Adventure Time Fans,
This review is from: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd you steal our garbage?!! - Nintendo 3DS (Video Game)
Adventure Time fans can rest assured that they will enjoy this game. The dialogue is spot-on for every character to the point where I can literally hear the characters talking in my head (though their is occasionally some spoken dialogue which usually amounts to a word or two, don't expect full sentences).
The gameplay is reminiscent of Legend of Zelda II, which I'm sure you know by now. The game is not very challenging if you're used to playing video games. This was probably done so they wouldn't alienate younger gamers (though they sometimes tend to be the best gamers!) The game plays and feels great, though sometimes it is confusing trying to use health items with the touch screen while in the middle of a fight.
Now onto the down sides, sometimes you may get lost on what to do, though eventually you'll figure it out as it's usually not too hard or cryptic (just be sure to pay attention to the dialogue [as you should be, as it's great!]
The other downside which is the worst in my opinion is that the game is very short. Being a avid gamer I was able to beat the game in 4 and a half hours! (There seems to be a new game plus mode but I haven't touched it yet) Also, some characters do not get as much screen time as they should in my opinion (though most of the main characters from the show and a lot of the side characters make their appearances).
In short, if you're an adventure time lover, you'll probably enjoy this game but be sure to be wary of the fact that it is not a difficult game and is very short. Here's hoping that we'll get a sequel and it will be longer!

I was looking into getting this for my 6 year old son, who is pretty good at playing video games, do you think he will be able to play and enjoy this game?

Hmm, the game does at times get decently hard and someone that has a small attention span might get lost or confused on what to do (even I got lost on where specifically to go sometimes even when the characters told me). If he can't look it up on the internet what to do when he gets lost then he'll probably get stuck a couple of times. I'm not sure if he'd be able to enjoy it at his age though he might if he can figure out where to go by himself but I'd proceed with caution (Not the easiest game but appropriate for maybe ages 8-10+).
