Animal Genius was by far my 7 year old daughter's favorite game on her Leapster. When they came out with the same game for her new Nintendo DS, I was a little hesitant to buy it, afraid that it might be the same exact game as the Leapster model. She'd played the Leapster version so much, I think she answered every single question she could, several times over. But, the DS version is different enough that she is, once again, engaged and learning alot about animals. I really like the fact that this game is educational and fun.

My 4 year old just got this game as a gift yesterday and he hasn't put it down since! There is a lot to keep them busy without being overwhelming and it is one of the few fun educational games out there. The best part about it is that it talks to the children instead of making the children read. A lot of games say that they are age appropriate for everyone but very few 4 and 5 year olds can read full paragraphs about what they have to do to play the game! I would highly recommend this game to anyone with children.

I bought this as a birthday present for my 14yr daughter who loves animals and trivia. When she played it, it was way too easy. This game is targeted more for younger kids, maybe 5 - 7yr. Hope this helps in your purchase.

My daughter is 6 and has really enjoyed this game. She has learned a lot of animal facts. My 14 year old was not as impressed so I would recommend it for younger audiences.

A Kid's Review on November 28, 2009
Hello, I'm nine, I think it's okay. The first time I completed the game, I had a blast. But why play it again. You do everything again. The only fun part is when an animal alert comes. I read the reviews above and maybe... they're right, it could be for younger kids.

Moving from Leapster to DS. Our son (6) got more interested in Mario games on the DS, than the educational games for his Leapster handheld. Although we don't deny him playing Mario and other non-educational DS games, we still prefer to see him playing educational games. Which he doesn't do that often anymore. We decided to try this game, to see if he would play with it on his DS, and learn from it. It was a success. He likes it, plays a lot with it, and learns from it.

I haven't had a chance to check the game in detail yet. He's playing mostly with it, and sometimes come to me for help. From what I was able to see, there are several maze-like games, that the player gets to play, when he's able to complete a 10 question quiz (animal questions). Seems like a great way for kids to learn. There are also parts where the game narrates details about particular animals (what they are, where they live etc). I believe there are other type of games also on it. Enough variation, and a lot to learn. If I get a chance, and when I learned more of the game, I might update here. But it's a great educational DS game. He likes it, and we are very happy.

UPDATE 8 AUG 2011:
I got a chance to `play' a bit with the game during the wk-end, so have a bit more details now. The game consists of five animal habitats: rain forest, arctic, grasslands, ocean and woodlands. The player is to `win' 5 animals in each habitat, by playing short/quick games. You win points for each correct game or answer. When you reach a certain total you win one animal, which will then appear in the correct habitat. 25 points wins you your 1st animal, 50 your 2nd and so on.

We bought this game for our 6 year old daughter for her birthday and she has earned all of the animals after a week or so but she has played this games so many times. She just enjoys all the games and the quizzes. Frankly, it was the best money I ever spent.

i bought this game for my 6 year old son and he loves it
he needs a little help once in a while, but he can do most of the game on his own
he gets so excited when he wins a new animal
it is a game filled with matching, hand/eye coordination and question answering
he has fun while he learns a little bit about wild animals
