About Club Penguin

This is a good site for kids.... but you have to buy a club penguin card, in order to get them outfits! My Kid has to get a game card!? Yes... its true! This is what i hate about it!!! But i suggestion is that you should not buy stuff on the internet! Its Dangurous.. they may even still your credit card change or money!!! But, No way i am buying this for my 8 year old!!! She can play some other game! (Talking About Online Club Penguin, Not For DS Or Dsi).

Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force: Herbert's Revenge is just as marvelous as its predecessor. The mix of mystery and mini-games creates a wealth of variety; kids definitely will not get bored. Your ability to purchase new accessories and tweak your penguin's appearance is a fun element as well. But perhaps best of all, this game has a great story for young players to follow and be a part of. The overall mystery is a fun one -- and finding clues like a coded message on a chalkboard that tells you where to look next is pure joy for gadget-loving kids. Plus your remarkably polite and supportive penguin spies are alway ready to lend a hand to a bird in need, so there are plenty of side quests and mini-games along the way, like fixing broken machinery or cleaning up gloopy spills. Kids who are already hooked into the Club Penguin website will get everything they're looking for out of Herbert's Revenge, but more importantly, kids who have no prior experience with Club Penguin will get a great gaming experience also.

Online interaction: The game can connect to Disney's D-Gamer network which allows achievements to be unlocked and let's gamers chat with one another in a moderated setting.
