If you liked the movie the you will also love this game for sure.

The graphics of the game is bright, colorful and tangy. It has fairly challenging levels for kids. The game length is fairly long to keep children hooked for weeks, but younger kids may find it difficult at times.

It was actually a very impressive game to play and I learned heaps.

Although none of the activities in the game would hold up particularly well on their own, as a collection they're great fun. A large part of the game's appeal is that the activities are all short and sweet, and don't drag on past the point of being fun. The ability for up to four people to play the mini-games together in the multiplayer Africa Arcade mode, as well as being able to spend coins in the Duty Free Shop to unlock character outfits and videos, just sweetens the package. The game is also an excellent homage to the movie, with cutscenes and voice-over dialogue that is sure to please fans.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
