An absolute knock-out kid's game.,
This review is from: Disney Universe - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I purchased this game on impulse after playing a demo version with my 8 year-old. I brought it home and myself, and my 8 and 6 year-old have been playing it daily while on vacation--the kids absolutely love it. Took about a week to beat the game and it was loads of fun all the way through. The graphics and gameplay are excellent. Even more fun is the opportunity to unlock costumes and music from the game by freeing "captured" characters while playing. The kid's had almost as much fun purchasing the unlocked costumes (with gold Mickey coins collected during game play).
Pros: Excellent graphics, excellent gameplay and character physics, zero-learning curve, immersive and enjoyable even for adults and a roller-coaster ride thrill for the pre-teen set.
Cons: While the game can be played alone, for maximum enjoyment you really should have at least two players (supports up to 4), and at times (with 3 players playing, the screen can get a little chaotic. I lost track of my character a few times though it could just be "old eyes syndrome".)
Verdict: This is a slam-dunk from the Disney folks. Even without the Disney/Pixar characters, it would be a great game. Give little girls the chance to play as Tinkerbell or Rapunzel and it's a no-brainer purchase.
