First of all, I'm not a really big fan of Barbie, but the Barbie movies and computer games are very entertaining! In this game, Barbie finds out about a mysterious treasure known as the Mystic Mirror. According to a map, she must go to the mountainous Tibet, the sandy Egypt, the leafy African Jungle, and the, um, existent Babylon, to find the pieces. (With specific country, continent, etc. names, it's almost educational!) The back of the box says there's 4 levels, but actually, it's more like 4 environments with 4 levels each. Go through the levels, collecting treasure, getting past caverns, and trying not to bump into absent-minded animals. LOL!
Remember: to find out the game's controls, PLEASE go to the VR Training. This game comes with NO user's manual. The VR Training is basically a place where you collect the question marks to get demo-videos that tell you all the controls you'll need. This is the only way I know of to find out the controls for the game, so please look at it before playing. Oh, and, to give you a head-start here's the basics: arrow keys to run & space bar to jump. VR Training will tell you the rest.
It would be better if you typed in your name instead of selecting the letters using arrow keys/enter, but heck, it's also for the PlayStation, so it could be expected. I also would be much happier if you could save any time or it automatically saved. You can only save every time you finish a level, so if you forget...you've got another level to finish.
This game is very fun to play, complete with large 3-D levels and all different types of obstacles & goodies. The main problem with the gameplay is that some areas require very good timing & speed, even on the Easy level (the one I'm on). You start off with 40 lives in each level, but it's still VERY hard to do some of those things. My older sister Russian Blue Witch is great at video games, but sometimes, she ended up draining my lives trying to get past some parts. I'd say that it's probably too hard for younger kids. It's probably best for ages 7 & up.
Graphics: Not perfect, but pretty good. 7/10
Gameplay: Very fun, but a little hard. 7/10
Storyline: Far from super, but could be PLENTY worse. 6/10
Overall: It's no-doubt fun enough to be worth the money. 8/10
I think this game is worth it. It's better for older kids due to challenging parts, but nonetheless, it is a VERY fun game. Check out other Barbie software! Signed, StoryMaker. "Gotta trust the kid's review!"
"i hate this game it is a bad. action as never before bad game barbie runs jumps and climbs and dives in this bad game. search exotic lands to find lost treasure like africa and tibet and egypt and more. i relly hate this game."
Parental comment: 'Barbie Explorer' is a pointless game. All of the challenges are the same just the outfit and setting is changed.... That being: Barbie has to maniacally jump, swing, jitter and spin along a mindless trail. Picking up stars and jewels to get through the labrynth to a meaningless conclusion. No logic, No strategy. Terrible.
