I bought this game knowing that my 4 year old son was going to get the most fun out of it. However, when I worked out the calibration and how it might work for him, I found myself drawn in and an hour went by in a flash. Plenty fun and easily played, I would recommend this for families (both parent and kids). The side games are easily accomplished for the bronze level in order to unlock new bears/cubs with the gold medals being mildly hard to achieve with a little practice. A nice break that gets you off your feet and has everyone smiling. With minimal play time (90minutes) I've unlocked a new area and gotten gold medals in the first section. My son (60 minutes play time total to this point) has been able to achieve half the bronze medals in the first section and unlocked his first new cub. Nice easy gameplay that has him bouncing about and having a blast while I can lay back on the sofa. (And then sneak on when he's sleeping to get my achievements!)
As for the difference between this and the first Kinectimals, the gameplot on the two islands is practically identical (including identical dialog in some places) but the scenery is different as are the games. The "Bears" portion can be purchased after the fact if you're not sure as well.
