5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, very enjoyable, 23 Nov. 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dinosaurs: Combat Of Giants (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I bought this for my 7 yr old daughter. She is not a huge dinosaur fan but saw the adverts, liked the idea of the game and pestered me enough to convince me. We have not been disappointed. It is a game that she found quick to learn, easy to understand and yet engaging. She has spent hours and hours playing it and says the game changes enough with enough variety and options to keep her constantly amused.
The game gives you 24 different dinosaur species, all with different mods and features. You have to care for your dino - food, water, health after battles. This is a feature that really helps to connect with your little "pet" and stops it being merely a fighting battle game.
There are 9 different environments, all visually interesting and different with different threats to watch for.
The battles are interesting and "fun" - good balance of skill and fun involved.
You certainly get quite a lot for your money. Great graphics, lots of variables in terms of animals, battles, environments and events. Enough to keep your child (or yourself!) wanting to return and continue playing.
I would say that this is suitable for 5 yrs+ with a little adult help and by 6/7 yrs, your child will play independently with no problem. If my non dino loving daughters who do not really go for the traditional "fight" style games, then any child who really loves dinos will be totally sold on this game.
Definitely worth considering for any dino fan aged bt. 5-10 max (hard to put ages as everyone is different and some children enjoy easier games, others like a challenge)
Thoroughly recommend it.
