The far North of our planet is one of the most perilous environments in the world. Take on the role of either a young Polar Bear or a Walrus growing up and trying to survive in the wild. From eating to fighting off predators, almost every aspect of the animal's life is presented to the player. Learning to live in this world is vital as they go from the regular dangers to the extreme threats. Experience the thrilling, interactive look at the walrus and polar bears that roam the vast world of the Arctic wilderness. The gameplay will evolve as the animal's age over eleven stages that take the player from snowy mountains, across turbulent ice sheets that are ravaged by blizzards, and into the frigid oceans that are patrolled by deadly killer whales. The stages alternate between free-roaming areas containing several mini-games to travel zones, which involve the player taking actions to get from one area to another. The travel zones could be anything from descending a cliff face from the mountains to the ice sheets below or surviving in the open ocean as a storm rages around you.

This Game is AWFULI bought this game thinking it would be fun. And maybe it is for little kids, but not for me. All you do is run around leading your polar bear, walrus or fox, and try to eat and play crazy little mini games, and half of them mini games don't make any sence, and are impossible to win. Every other mini game you come too you have to go back to the "cave" and change into a differant animal. Then when you get back to the mini game ( IF you don't get eaten by a male polar bear ) you find out that it is crazy and there is no way at all to win it. Everything differant you try makes you lose. This game is not fun at all.

No!!! The Worst Game Ever!I hated this game so much. It was terrible. I thought it was going to be fun and you would see more like the baby animals would. But no. It is a very stupid game. You walk around looking for food trying not to get killed. You move very slow and I soon grew inpatient. You can only go so far before you have to change into a different animal. There are three animals you can be, but there is very few places that you can change. You have to be a certain animal to get to different places. And some mini games in it are just about impossible to do. Other times, to get to different places, you need to have so many "gold stars.' You get them bye perfecting the mini games, but, like I said, sometimes that seems impossible. Overall, I really hated this game because I thought it was going to be more fun. If there was a zero in the overall rating, this game would be a zero.
