Fun, stylish, and a bit too spooky for little ones.

I really like this game

I've never played a game quite like this, but I really do love it. I'd say it's good for kids who aren't easily creeped out by more spooky looking designs, and obviously need a reading ability, so roughly 9 and up is the youngest I'd reccomend to, though it depends on the child. It's a fun game, I'd say it's like an adventure game.

Is It Any Good?

Disney Alice in Wonderland offers so much more than your standard 2-D platformer game for the Nintendo DS. Its developers made a very wise choice in not attempting to duplicate the lush graphics of the Wii/PC Alice adaptation, and instead went for a beautifully stylized (but graphically simpler) cartoony look. The tone and feel is still very Tim Burton, though -- obviously inspired by the film. The special abilities of each characters are also put to exceptionally good use over the course of the game. The rabbit time-manipulating power, for instance, could have been the central gimmick of a game all its own. When you see a fallen apple, for instance, you can stand on it, reverse time, and ride the fruit back up into the tree it had fallen from. Genius! Wonderfully creative touch are found throughout, especially with the map of Underland, which the player is able to mix around to create shortcuts. Repetitive battles are the game's only real flaw.

Online interaction: The game allows you to win unique costume items for your avatar in D-Gamer, Disney's online gaming community.
