Kirbys Epic Yarn - Perfect for 6 to 8 year olds,
This review is from: Kirby's Epic Yarn (Wii) (Video Game)I have three daughters the two youngest are 6 and just turned 8. The 8 year old is fairly savvy with games (Sims Secret Agent / Animal Crossing etc) but the 6 year old does not like them due to missed timed jumps / over hard bad guys etc and doesn't like them. She is happy with Just Dance and no more.
However, this game brought them to a common ground and within 5 minutes of play they where laughing their socks off in the 2 player mode. Throwing each other, turning into fish and swimming after gems, turning into rather round large tanks with a massive punch glove on.
The game is very very simple, and no drama of dying, losing gems just doesn't give points or unlock special secrets so no big loss.
It looks amazing with its simple colour and fabric textures, no massive super amazing explosions.
There is aslo a great feature where along the way they can get free furniture for a flat (appartment) you get after the training room to create a fun space.
A very simple, fun and safe game for the kids, and fun to watch and point out stuff as an adult.
I would stick this on a birthday list.
