my 4yr old son loves 'go diego go' (about an 'animal scientist' who lives in the rainforest), but all the related games have seemed disappointingly cheesey ~ this one, though, makes him feel like he =is= diego!

this sort of game is why i bought the leapster in the first place! the graphics are amazing ~ rather realistic & not cartoony. you start off picking a habitat (woodlands, rainforest, ocean, grasslands, or artic) & then have to 'win' 5 animals to fill it up by playing the 4 different games (maze munch - negotiate a maze to get food for your animal; feature finder - classify & sort animals by physical features; matchomatic - match the animal with it's feature (eyes, skin, food, etc); scratch & see - figure out which animal is hiding by scratching off as little of it's cover as possible) after you've gotten enough points, you take a quiz on that particular animal & then get to see it in it's habitat. also, "animal alert" happens periodically where an animal is in the wrong habitat & you have to find it. i wish there was more consistency in the animals (i.e. games for grassland animals focussed on animals that actually live in the grasslands) & maybe a bit more flexible formula but all in all a =great= game that's very educational & not patronizing. also, excellant integration of using both the stylus & arrow keys. like all leapster titles there are different levels of play.

~*~without a doubt our absolute favorite title thus far & i really hope they make more like these!~*~

My son(6) and my daughter(3.5) really like this game. We own over fourteen leapster games and this one is their favorite. It has four types of games: "Maze Munch", "scratch and see", "Feature finder" and "Matchomatics". It also has fact quiz for each animal that you are going to win. It is so cute when my three and half year old ask her dad:"Do zebras live in the arctic?" Then she would answer it herself:"No. It's too cold for zebra. Zebras live in grassland". Kids are learning while playing. I can not ask for anything better. It also keeps their attention for hours.

You know I really was excited to purchase this for a XMAS present for my daughter who just turned 6 however I find that this game is so easy and not challenging that other games may have - scatch feature to show which animal, collect animals and put them where they belong grasslands, artic etc., but in the end I find this game so easy that my 3 year daughter who picks up her leapster L Max and takes her sistes cartridge "Animal Genius" can play up to par with her older sister - this is truly for a preschooler older than that may bore them.

My boys are just turning 3 and almost 5, and they both love this game. Actually, they fight over it, which can be frustrating for Mommy, so they are also learning all about Taking Turns! They have both learned so much from this game, and they take what they have learned and incorporate it into their other playing. They will play with their Little People animals and say things like, "Zebras live in the Grassland - watch out for Lions! Lions eat Zebras!" That sounds harsh, but don't worry, no actual eating of Zebras going on in the game. The game does talk a lot about "predators", and the boys are learning a lot about what a predator is, and how nature works. We build upon what they learn in the game by reading more science-oriented books that teach kids about animals.

I will say that the Maze Munch game can be a bit difficult at the higher levels. Sometimes, I can barely escape the Grouper in the Clownfish maze munch! Might be that our arrow botton on the Leapster is a little touchy. It can be hard to get away from that grouper to hide in the sea anemone! The boys get frustrated by it, and want help from me. But maybe it's good to show them that I can't do it either!

I would say this is their favorite Leapster game, and it has been for awhile. They also enjoy Kindergarten, Letters on the Loose, and Numbers on the Run.

I bought this for my 4.5 year old son, who is a huge animal lover. He absolutely loved the game at first and the educational value was terrific. However, as others have said, once you get to a certain point in the game, 2 out of 4 of the mini games stop working. Unfortunately for my son, the two games that no longer worked were his favorites. Not sure why the game has this feature, and like others, I thought that there was a problem with the game at first. At this point, he is just signing in as "guest" so that he can play the mini games he likes. However, this definitely takes away the sense of accomplishment since he can't "earn" all of the best on a guest account.

This is definitely my 5 yo's favorite Leapster game. She also has Sponge Bob, the Leapster game that comes with the older Leapster and the Disney Princess game. She likes them all, but I was definitely amazed at the amount of time she spends with this one....and I am amazed at how much she has learned! She literally plays for hours.

She was hoping if she "filled the world" she would get new animals to learn about. I tried to warn her that she probably wouldn't, but she just played and played until the world was filled. Unfortunately, she got to start all over. But honestly, she still loves it. She is constantly quoting me animal facts!

I just wish there were more similar games by Leapster. Maybe an Animal Genius II? I know my daughter would love it!

Great game, highly recommend for any kid who has an interest in animals.
