The graphics really capture the look of the film and the voice acting in the game is spot on. The first level takes place in the woods which has these black wolves and tree type men for you to dispatch of with your bowing arrow or trusty sword. The levels are well constructed with fun combat, platforming and easy enough puzzles for the younger player to be able to work out. Princess Merida's mum has been turned into a bear a when she made a deal with a witch and now she must find a way of breaking this magicial curse. Even her three brothers have been turned into baby bears and you use them sometimes to solve puzzles. What is great fun is when you are given control of mother bear to take the enemies on with.
The are many up grades you can buy to improve your weapons and there are different types of powers that you can find for your bow. The bow is a far more effective weapon then the sword in my humble opinion. Part from Disney Epic Mickey (Wii)
this just may be the next best Disney game on the Wii even if, it is easy for older players like myself. My daughter is finding this game a enjoyable challenge and may need more help for the later levels which have more tricky platforming sections. Overall if your son or daughter enjoyed the film then they should enjoy this game as well.
