Mega Bloks Diego's Build and Rescue is a great concept with unfortunately less-than-perfect execution. Searching through different habitats to find the lost animals is a great premise for a Diego game -- and even the Mega Bloks license is used well, providing neat construction elements for the game. But unlike most of 2K Play's Nick Jr games (which typically have fantastic controls, perfectly designed for preschoolers), this game can be pretty tough to work through. When a preschooler is trying to tap an item to make Diego interact with it -- and he ends up just making Diego jump back and forth in front of it -- that's a recipe for frustration. And steering with the stylus on the vehicle levels, while not insanely difficult, is just as challenging as it would be in a racing game meant for much older kids. This game feels far too demanding for Diego's audience.
