2.0 out of 5 stars Not much to it. 5 Sep 2010
By Laura
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Brought this for my 4yr old son and he loves it but there isnt much to it, there are only 8 mini games and a story section which repeats the same games again. Each time you go on the games they are exactly the same, its very limited and for the money it really isnt worth it as im sure the kids will be bored of it in few days.

1.0 out of 5 stars Far too short 9 Sep 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this for my 3 year old as he struggles with the wii games that his older brother plays. The game itself is ok but far far too short. There are two main modes from the menu - story or games. We started with the story which is basically 8 levels split up by cut scenes. It all works ok and he enjoyed it but the levels are very very basic and quick. You basically have one task to do, for example race another train by rotating the wii remote, or cleaning thomas by shaking the remote. I'm not exaggerating when I say that he had completed all 8 levels within half an hour (and bear in mind he normally struggles to even point the remote at the screen). On to the game mode. Again you have 8 mini games, but these are basically the same as the story levels, and also last for about a minute and are far too easy to present a challenge. He quite enjoyed the game but it just does not have any substance at all. It was all over in half an hour and I can't see it being played again. If it was retailing at about 5 it might be worth it (just about), but at almost 20 they have got to be kidding, it is a rip off. You can get Thomas PC games for about 2.50 and they are much better value. Avoid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for 3 year olds! 22 Jan 2011
By J. Pipe
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I agree with what the other reviewers say, the story mode is short and there's only 8 minigames. But my three year old son loves it and has asked to play it every single day since he got it. 3 year olds have short attention spans anyhow so the short repetitive games are good for him, and I don't really want him playing more than half hour at a time anyhow! We bought him the diego game as well but that doesn't hold his attention in the same way, he gets frustrated with it. In conclusion yes Hero of the Rails is a simple and limited game, but my three year old loves it and to me that's what is important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did the job perfectly! 7 Jan 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Bought for our 3 yr old as he was finding the controls for the games we had for the Wii tricky to master. he loves Thomas and has thoroughly enjoyed the story mode (which is lengthy for short attention spans) and the individual game modes. Picked up the controls quickly. Other reviews didn't score this particularly well, but as a game for young children to master Wii controls - it does what it needs to, as a gamne for adults or older children then it would definitely become boring and monotinous.

2.0 out of 5 stars Short and Simple 2 Feb 2011
By Mrs F
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Sorry to be repetitive, this game was very disappointing. I got it for my 4 year olds birthday and we couldn't believe how short and simple it was. He played it a few times on his birthday but after a few days was saying "oh not this again". Theres no different levels to it, its a short story with simple games and the same games from the story in a separate format. Anyhow I would say OK if this is your childs 1st game, but if they've tried others, they will get bored very quick!

Both my son and daughter have enjoyed playing this. You can choose to do the games as part of the story or on their own and this makes it more fun. My son is absolutely hooked!

2.0 out of 5 stars A 2* rating but my Thomas-obsessed son loves it!
If anyone over four years old tries to play this they will get bored extremely quickly but my four year old is a huge Thomas fan and he just loves it. So why only two stars? Read more
