Oh dear... we bought this game for our son's eigth Birthday, we've given it a try before giving to him and have had to buy a different game for him instead, as we know he'll be utterly bored with this one. We played for twenty minutes, which was generous, as we hated it from word "go"! The games are boring and the controls are completely random, there's absolutely no skill involved at all... while I appreciate lots of games are like that, there are no other compelling features to make you want to continue playing this game. The graphics are rubbish too... the carnival folk look downright scary, if I went to a real life carnival like that, I'd leave, quickly!
Avoid it, buy Rayman's TV Party instead, or Mario and Sonic at the Olympic games.
