We bought this for our 6 and half year old son, because he wanted the DS3D version, but we were reluctant to buy a new DS just for one game. The game is great for dinosaur fanatics, which most boys that age are. However it is quite repetitive and the graphics are not as good as I expected them to be. After a few days of playing my son has already complained that the only thing you can do in the game is fight each other. It is in fact Tekken with Dinos. So if you are looking for something with a little more gaming and interaction factor, perhaps this isn't the what you are looking for.
