This was bought for my 7 yr old daughter and 6 yr old son who both LOVE the movie. The game supports 2 players which was my main requirement. It has the great feature of just being able to "jump" in to the game and if playing solo the main player can switch between other characters. There are lots of co-op challenges with each of the players utilizing some skill or tool they have to solve a problem.
The flying was hard but you have to teach your children how to SLOW DOWN to shoot down the dirigible's engines, it's one of the buttons on the nunchuck. My kids took to the flying parts so much they love to play some of the mini-games that let them do nothing but fly. Don't give up.
They made it all the way through the game but still get lots of pleasure out of it.
Character voices are great and there are lots of good lines.
Fun use of the Wii controllers with sawing and other actions.
Great game for UP fans.
Alternate review after reading all of the negative reviews:
If you hate a good challenge look elsewhere.
If you DONT want to learn how to control a vehicle in a 360x360 degrees environment and vastly improve your spatial relationship skills this game is not for you.
It's not a simple game, it challenges you to learn how to fly and you MAY have to read the instructions on the flight controls. Look behind you, slow down. 2 hints that will help you immensely.
And while the characters may look happy and cartoony the gameplay gets challenging in parts. You may have to listen to the clues that the players give you, "Hmmm, maybe I can use my cane....", and such.
My 6 and 7 year old kids made it through the game, yours can too, just stick with it, slow down and look behind you occasionally.
Read the prompts that come up, they'll tell you what you need to know.
It's a fun game and was very rewarding for my children to play through, they still go back and play it.
Character voicing was great with lots of funny parts, visually it was good and the violence was minimized.
The mini-games are a lot of fun and overall we have no complaints.
Challenge yourself and your children to overcome the obstacles that this game presents and it may positively affect the rest of their lives. Learning to overcome challenges simply for the reward of accomplishment , "flying" a bi-plane, and reading instructions and following clues presented by the game are a few that come to mind.
