good for role play but don't expect much from the functions
on 14 September 2009
I bought this for my boy who is 5. He was very excited about it and still plays with it weeks on from purchase but not as often as you would think. It looks impressive and for role play is good. The things it can do are really really really basic. Mind you, despite the lameness of the effects he seems to like it better than the ds game!
As an adult who likes Ben 10 I think it looks cool but the functions could have been better. The battle mode (the most 'interesting' one) has you having to turn the dial to find the correct hero in time. If you find the right hero in time you win the 'battle' if not you lose........... yeah great! Another mode helpfully keeps your score and another one allows you to 'turn' to the hero you want to be - however for a child who is into Ben 10 it is an essential bit of kit and this, with the outfit, transforms the average kid into Ben 10. Whether it is worth the money is debateable but are any of these toys worth the money!? I think on the role play front he will get more enjoyment and use out of it than alot of other toys so on that level it is probably worth it!
