This game does a good job of recreating the park. The good graphics seal the deal with accurate representations of the actual park. Most of the major rides (Space Mountain, Peter Pan's Flight, Buzz Lightyear's Astroblasters) have been converted into minigames. Space Mountain has you flying through wrecked ships, Peter Pan entails you sailing through the skies of London and Never never land, and, finally, dueling with Captain Hook. Astroblasters will let players battle Evil Emperor Zurg and his minions. Minor rides (Astro Orbiter, that Dumbo one who's name escapes me) have been converted into cutscene type things, where the camera assumes first person view from one of the cars as it mimics the actual ride. You can earn and collect points that let you buy Autograph Books, Clothing, Costumes and more. Quests are available to give the player special items, and to progress through a storyline. For consumerism, it's obviously Disneyland. It promotes Disney merchandise and encourages players to visit the real thing.
In short, it's a nice game, but no substitute for the real parks. Still, it's something to tide your kids over, if they keep asking you.
