I bought this game for my step daughter this christmas as we are both fans of the films. I had seen a preview of the game on-line and it did look a little complicated. However, after our initial frustration we soon realised that it was quite simple and if you played in time to the music you soon progress quickly. My step daughter is 8 years old and was coping very well with the junior level, I, however, have now advanced onto senior level after I worringly realised I had spent 5 hours on the game in two days. My husband is not happy! My only disappointment was that it is not the original cast members singing the songs, though you quickly get over that as you become more obsessed with the rountines. This one is really strictly for High School Musical fans though, otherwise it may drive you a bit crazy.
