While I do think this game is a bit simplistic I still really enjoy playing it. My 4 year old nephew is able to play this game along with me and he loves it. The game play is lots of fun, I especially love how the different characters interact such as giving piggy back rides or holding on to their feet while flying, my nephew also likes how the characters share food, which he calls telling secrets. And I like the multiplayer option so I can play with my nephew my mom and my brother all at the same time. The many new and different powerups are a lot of fun as well. Such as the leaf power up. There's so much to do on top of the main story line like mini-games and training modes. Overall a really great and fun game.
