Go Diego Go!: Great Dinosaur Rescue
Loved it....and so did my kid.
My parents aren't gamers, but a few years back they decided to get a Wii (in an attempt to relate to their adult gamer children on the holidays). The plus side is that my 4 year old son is now starting to play some games. My mom got the Diego Dino game for him specifically. Sometimes these Wii games are hit or miss. They can be too involved trying to imitate a kinnect, which just doesn't work, or they are just a glorified DS. This game was made for kids and made for the Wii. It immediately hooked my kid with the overall plot, but then through in additional tasks to follow. The most basic controls are all the same, but mixed up with slightly different movements and icons on the screen. It is kid friendly and doesn't let the kids fail. They have to learn basic functions and slight problem solving, but some aspects are there just for fun. I wouldn't get this if you are super into "learning." But if you want to have fun watching your kid explore and branch out on their own it is a great game. It reminds me of the good old Donkey Kong games. Love it. Con: The graphics aren't great...if you are comparing them to other console games. But perfect for kids and easy to follow.
"The best game ever" according to a 2-year old
I purchased this game for my 2-year old son in search for something that he can play on the Nintendo Wii. I was concerned at first that he would not be able to understand how to play because he has Diego for his v-smile and can not do everything on that one without help. He can play this Diego game with no help at all. He loves Diego but it only took me to have to show him one time and he has been playing every since. The levels is enough to keep his attention without overdoing it. He has finished it 4 or 5 times but loves to play. Also the races are great. There is no two-player mode so households with more than one child may have a problem with that. Also the help feature with a second remote is great because I can help him without having to give up the remote.
4 Year Old LOVES IT
My 4 year old son really loves this game. He watches the show and knows all the characters. It goes along like the show where Click finds the animals that are hurt and you have to match their sounds with the animal. It has a lot of different Wii motions that keep it interesting instead of just running and collecting things. The levels are long enough to be filling but not too long to become boring. I would recommend this game to any young child even if they don't watch the show.
