4.0 out of 5 stars Challenging, Educational and Fun! 15 Mar. 2010
By caz
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My 8 year old daughter was given this for Christmas and loves it. Her Dad is a scientist (hence the gift!) and he has spent time with her talking to her about what she is doing and why. It requires the player to be able to read fairly well and it also demands good control of the wii handset. I am not sure if she would play it on her own but she loves playing it with her Dad in the background helping her and chatting to her about it. Great for older children but not many younger kids would find it very satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and interesting 15 Jan. 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is fun for those who like science, although my five year old finds the handling of the controlls hard he still loves this game and the information he gets.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and challenging 31 Jan. 2011
A Kid's Review
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It is a good game when you start very interesting the instructions would not be good for younger children as quite complex words but easy to understand by older children. It is great for the first time and then it just repeated the same experiments over and over again until it is perfect I ended up doing the same two experiments about 6 times (when i gave up) I would not recommend if your not very patient.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only played the first excercise... 30 Dec. 2013
By Chrissy
Verified Purchase
...incase the game saved my progress and I ruined it for the kids. The first exercise was making Brine - water and salt, and you get the wii remote and measure it in and stir it, etc, etc. Being an adult it was all painfully slow moving, but I'm sure a child would enjoy it. Mine haven't even played it yet, but they don't play the wii much anyway except Mario Kart. I think they will get some use out of it when they are ready, and hopefully the science gets more interesting and advanced. If not, thankfully it wasn't too expensive! Worth a punt if you are 'sciencey'.
