3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, poor controls, but good for a 5 yr old, January 21, 2008
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Disney Princess: Enchanted Journey - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I bought this for my daughter for her 5th birthday. I also bought her Catz2 for Christmas. Catz2 was unplayable for her (despite being a fairly easy game... it also requires reading). This one started out as being hard for her to control, but she started to actually grasp it and after completing a few levels, she can actually hold both the wiimote and nunchuck herself. She still has a bit of trouble maneuvering the girl with the nunchuck's joystick, but overall she can do it on her own.

She finds all bad guys to be scary... the bogs in this game she freaks out a little and they scare her, but they've been easy enough for her to defeat (no dying) and she doesn't have to aim, just wave the wiimote up and down.

She really loves the game though, and is happy to go into the levels (without the scary bogs) and wander around.

The bad part about the game is that whenever you need to point the wiimote at the screen, the pointer is VERY finicky and it's difficult to do, even for an adult. You would think for $40 for a game, that Disney could release a game without a bug like that.

Also, once you go back IN a level after you've done all 3 "chapters", you can't get out again without going to the main menu and choosing "return to castle".

Collecting Gems means nothing, and the counter stops at 999. It would've been nice if there was a Princess Store or something you could buy outfits with or something.

I think after playing this game, that she'll have a better grasp about the Wii's controls and will be able to play other games without as much frustration. Too bad this one was expensive though, I'm not sure it's worth the money for a learning kids game without a ton of replay value.
