I'm not sure what the problem is--my kids love Jumpstart, but they won't play this. Even my 8 year old, who's a wii-whiz, gets frustrated trying to use the controller on this game. Also, not having a multiplayer function is a big turn-off. My kids only like to play together and get bored by one-player games. I keep hoping they'll give this one another chance, but so far, not impressed.
