My daughter loves this game! It did take her a little time to learn how to move Dora, but now she can make her run, walk, and jump. She loves to make Boots jump into the bushes and barrels to explore. She really enjoys "finding" all of the pages to the books and the crystals. I love that it has the help feature where I can take control when she needs the extra little help and also there is a helping Fairy that gives instructions and advice. I like that the assist mode can be turned off for older children!
A good game for preschoolers to learn a game controller. Lots different arm actions with the Wii remote to move Dora along. Additional help narration for new users is good. This help can be skipped individually or turned off the the whole game.
the wrist action of turning the controller in a circle,left to right or back can`t take longer than a few seconds or it will cause the player to shut off the game!I was trying out the game on the wii this a.m., and found it irritating at first because the background music can`t be shut off or lowered. Then, I found Dora was hard to understand. Helpful was the "fairies' who showed up to tell me what to do next .
Did you choose this game because it is based on a direct-to-DVD movie of the same name? Or was it because you watch the Dora the Explorer TV show?
Do you like learning Spanish with Dora? What other languages would it be fun to learn?
