This giveaway is now over. The winner is blueviolet. Congrats!
My kids have a new favorite movie and game. It is How To Train Your Dragon. We were lucky enough to win 4 tickets to see it in the theater in 3D. Will, my 2 (aff) year old, begs to see it again every.single.day. I can't wait till it comes out on DVD. That being said, I jumped at the chance to review a copy of the How To Train A Dragon Wii game.
The age on this game is for ten and up (according to the rating on it, E10+). However, Madison (my 6 year old) has not had any problems playing all facets of this game on the easy level. I love that you don't have to see the movie to understand the game. On the flip side, if you have seen the movie, this is just what happened after the credits ran. You'll recognize the Island of Berk, and they even have the arena!
Being as young as she is, Madison doesn't normally play games the way you'd think she would. She likes to explore every facet of the game. One of her most favorite part of this game is the “create your own dragon” feature. You are able to customize six different dragon. You can change their tails, their color, etc. I think Madison has come up with several hundred different dragons in the short time we've had this game.
There are two ways to play this game. You've got the level up game. You run around the playing field trying to find items to collect to make your dragon stronger, faster, etc. There is also the head to head mode where you can pick your dream team of dragons and battle against either the Wii or your friends. I have to admit — this is actually pretty fun to watch. There also are mini games that allow you earn points toward leveling up your dragon, winning gold and other items to help care for dragons. The mini games include Ice Sculpting, Looping Race, Flying Sheppard, Memory Torch, and Puzzle Dragon.
Madison can play this game for hours and I love the one on one battles myself. Since we love this so much, I have a copy I'd love to give away to one of my readers!
