I give this game and other made by the same developer HIGH MARKS for a couple reasons:
1) Your child can not loose. There is no character death or starting over, etc. This is a huge selling point for me because my daughter gets easily frustrated and this allows her and me to have a much more enjoyable game experience.
2) The game is simple enough that you do not have to play it for your child. My daughter is able to play independently which is extremely important for me.
The only negative is re-playability. My daughter beat the game in a short period of time and doesn’t seem to want to replay it, though she did enjoy it the first time through.

2K Play has coasted out the last two Dora games. This is essentially Dora: Saves the Crystal Kingdom, which was really Dora: Saves the Snow Princess. All three of the games are basically the same, just with different graphical themes. Jump here, turn this, it’s the same adventure all over again. Some variations in gameplay would have been nice. My five year old daughter, who played through and finished the first two Dora games (especially liking Snow Princess), grew bored with this one after maybe 15 minutes and has not touched it again. She complained that it wasn’t “new” enough and she is right. Hopefully for the next Dora themed game, the developer will actually make a “new” game, however I am sure it is much cheaper and easier to just change some graphics around and reframe the story. Pretty disappointing, especially at the price point it was released at. HOWEVER if your child has never played a Dora game before, this is a decently crafted game for a kids release, and they will enjoy playing it, as it is easy to control and everything is so over explained that even the smallest child that can hold a controller should get some fun out of it.

Simple games for 3 & 4 year olds. A great buy! I like how there are visuals to show the child how to move the wii remote as they play.
