This game is phenomenally breathtaking

I could not believe my eyes when I launched this masterpiece, my eyes were blessed to see the most amazing version of everyone's favorite chipmunks, Alvin And The Chipmunks. If you're a fan of the films (lets be honest who isn't) this game will knock your socks off with its amazing narrative and graphics, the voice actors are the same ones from the film except they are totally different people who sound nothing like the OG actors, which is good for variety, this game has mild jokes which some people might find distressing in this age of political correctness, for example one time Alvin says, I get diarrhea every day, it’s a vicious cycle. Anyway back to the masterpiece, I believe every school should give out copies of this game to every student as it teaches amazing messages about friendship and politeness. This game is not for the mild at heart however, this is why I am rating it 15 and up as the violence is very heavy, for example when the big gingerbread man gets melted in the water, this is very graphic and distressing for very young children.

My boys watched it (ages 5 3/4 and 8 1/2) and both liked it. Based on their review, it did not sound very scary or mean, there were no nightmares, they seemed satisfied with it, and they didn't play "I'm a wolf man and going to eat you." or anything like that. So, I would say, it was OK.
