"K, go over there."
"Over to the arrow. Step on that button. DO NOT MOVE." (I go to required location activated by button, she moves, I die.) "AGgggghhhhh I said don't move."
"Well can I go there?"
"Umm..not yet." (Because it is a step in the required puzzle to move forward in the level and if she tries to complete it it'll take 10489208 hours longer than I am eager to spend for her to drag a wheel to its location etcetc...) "Now, step on the button. Don't move."
I complete the step. Bad guys spawn. She jumps off a cliff 12 times.
It is maddening to say the least. I have yet to play this single player, but I'm hoping that I can get through some of the levels easier and get the achievements I so desire by playing alone. But it is a blast to play with the kid, since dying has little to no consequence (you just lose some of your gold) and she thinks it's a really fun game. I don't know if she could play this one on her own just yet... I think it's a little too advanced as far as the puzzle solving requirements go.
The graphics, sound, and levels are all fun and cute, but they do add in to the general chaos. For example, we played the Lion King levels earlier today and there is all the crazy stuff going on already, plus the level around you is on fire and everything got kind of wavery looking. For a minute I thought my Xbox was trying to give me 3D graphics. I was very confused and got a little nauseous, but luckily that has only happened in the one section of the one level. And I seem to be extra sensitive to video-game-induced motion sickness so it might not even be a problem for the general public.
